Are cupcakes really BTS (Better than sex)?

If popularity rules, Adelaide's BTS cupcakes might make more than a few think about the question.

This pretty-in-pink cupcake shop has all the right elements - over the top decor, prompt friendly service and quirky cupcake names.

Best of all, the cupcakes live up to their promise.  They look lush, moist and flavoursome and they taste exactly the same.  There's certainly no disappointment when you bite into the cake and sample the delights - just bliss!

I'd heard about Mr Big ( Belgian Chocolate Cake & Chocolate Frosting) and just couldn't wait to try it - I wasn't disappointed.  The only disappointing thing was that I couldn't try all the cupcakes - after Mr Big even half of one of the minis was a stretch.

However I did manage a peck at at Bollywood Starlet (Lime, Pistachio, Cardamom Buttermilk Cake & Lime, Vanilla Frosting) an unusual combo that really worked.
