Search for the perfect cupcake - Dukes Deli

My eagle eye spotted this cupcake while I was shopping for lunch on Sunday at beautiful Sunshine Beach, just south of Noosa on the Sunshine Coast.

This area is the world's best kept secret. Great coffee shop, great deli, several very good restaurants and a welcoming bar all in one strip of shops in Duke Street.

If you feel adventurous, just wander down the road a bit to the Surf Life Saving Club for above standard club food and views to die for.  On Sunday arvos there's even great live music.

But back to the really important stuff - the cupcakes!  The cabinet included both small and large cupcakes and they were well priced - just $2.90 for a large one.  From experience, I was not expecting much at that price and was very pleasantly surprised.  The cake was moist and flavoursome, despite coming from a cold cabinet, and the icing was shiny, hard and sweet - like royal icing. There was a jaffa on top and a touch of yummy chocolate under the jaffa.  

Bottom line - A good cupcake - well worth the money.
