As if Brisbane wasn’t sweet enough already, Cakes & Shit—Brisbane’s newest bakery-come-cupcakery-come-bar—has arrived in Bakery Lane. Literally, how fitting…

Now, many of you may remember the great cupcake takeover of the late noughties. It came, it conquered, and then a new food trend came along, and the cycle repeated. Cakes & Shit are here to remind you that not only are cupcakes as goddamn delicious as your rose-tinted memory remembers, those were some pretty freaking awesome times when eating fist-sized cakes in the middle of the day were celebrated. (Sorry macarons, but size really does matter.)

Cake & Shit’s delectables are not your average, either (because of course not, guys); each cupcake comes with its own edible love (or hate) note to provide extra LOLs. ‘It’s hump day. Let’s get slutty’, ‘Fuck Mondays’, ‘Good luck getting lucky’; Cakes & Shit’s cupcakes pack some serious ‘tude but make up for their foul mouth by being utterly delicious.

As well as the aforementioned cupcakes, Cakes & Shit do a whole lot of other ‘shit’ of the sweet treat variety. All house baked, of course.

Add to that, a late licence (read: pair your cupcake with a cocktail) and you’ve got yourself one hell of a new Friday night knockoff.
