Poppy Cakes, Emporium, Fortitude Valley

Save yourself $4000 says Theo Levonis.

Satisfy your craving for New York style cup cakes in Brisbane instead of New York. If you loved the look in 'Sex and the City', you'll love the taste of these truly creamy cupcakes.

They are made with all the best stuff including Valrhona chocolate and creamy European butter.

There are eight varieties and it's very hard to choose. I started with Chocolate on chocolate but then I tried red velvet - wow, that strong colour really gets me in. The flavour is buttermilk, a hint of cocoa and vanilla butter cream. I'm liking the large cake too - expect to see that at my next gathering.

Other varieties are Vanilla on vanilla, Simone's vanilla passion, Chocolate vanilla, Vanilla chocolate, Lemon Poppy seed and even low gluten varieties.

I'm also intrigued by the Earl Grey and Chocolate Chunk Cookies. Prices for the cup cakes range between $3 and $4, and the cookies between 50c and $1.95.

Find Poppy Cakes at Emporium in the Valley but not inside the complex. It's on the Wickam Street side, right on the corner. Look for the bike. p 3257 4844.

Bottom line: Seriously good. Personal fave is Red Velvet.
