But when I started eating one a cupcake sent to me by Nikki from Perth Luxury Cakes I just couldn't stop there!
They were everything a good cupcake should be - light, moist and with a great texture and a real chocolate flavour that is irresistable to chocolate lovers.
As V Diddy, who was dieting at the time, said "that was worth every calorie".
Nikki McLay is the sort of baker who brings joy to a cupcake lover's heart. There's nothing pre-made or artificial about her cakes. Her recipes are more than just tried and true, Nikki has fine tuned them to ensure a good shelf life that's so good even a flight from Perth to the Gold Coast and road delivery by friend didn't take away from their goodness.
Nikki included some of her famous Brown Sugar Cookies and a pack of her magical Cheese Crisp biscuits. I loved both but the cheese crisps almost brought a tear to my eye when I thought how much my dad would have liked them. I'm sure she used my grandmother's recipe!
So if you live in Perth do yourself a favour and try some of Nikki's cupcakes.
Bottom line: recommended
