When it comes to sweet treats, there’s nothing more satisfying than the humble cupcake. It’s fluffy, it’s sweet and if Petal Cupcakes have anything to do with it, it’s b-e-a-utiful. Since launching in Newmarket in 2010, Petal Cupcakes have built up a rep (the good kind) for making some of the best cupcakes in Auckland and, now, they’re blessing the ‘burb of Takapuna with a brand new cupcake shop.
The idea to cross the bridge was sparked by the increase of orders from the North Shore. Petal Cupcakes deliver all across Auckland and they do it within three hours of ordering (very, very dangerous for us sweet tooths). It soon became apparent that the Shore’s cupcake cravings could only be truly satisfied by having a store closer to home.
Nestled on Hurstmere Road, Petal Cupcakes’ Takapuna hub is set to churn out the same addictive cupcakes—Balsamic Strawberry, Hazelnut & Chocolate, Lemon Tart and Salted Caramel being four of the 18 scrumptious flavours. Sally and her team currently whip up more than 1300 (!) cupcakes a day and with the new store in full swing, that number will no doubt skyrocket. The more cupcakes, the merrier, right?
Just like the Newmarket store, Petal Cupcakes’ Takapuna hub will continue to offer bespoke flavours, branded batches for business and delish gluten-free options. The cupcakes are baked daily, ensuring that they’re super moist before being piped to perfection with buttery smooth, ganache-like icing. We’re drooling already!
So, the next time your belly demands cupcakes, you know where to go. Petal Cupcakes in Takapuna will be ready and waiting.
