Cupcakes at Swirls

Warning: cupcakes ahead!

Visited Swirls at Rodyk Street (very near Kith and Toby’s!) for a tasting session, thanks to Danish 🙂 I was accompanied by le food blogger extraordinaire, Alexis.

ohyeah.

Look at this cutie patootie who was so excited about cupcakes! SOOOOO CUTE!!!

Okay! Moving on, Swirls is a little shop that’s tucked at the corner of a building. The story goes like this – Danish and his wife had an epic American road trip, and they tried many epic cupcakes, and they decided that they should bring these epic cupcakes to Singapore.

They serve a wide variety of cupcakes in different sizes – tiny, regular and COLOSSAL!

BAM!

Comparison between a tiny and a colossal. It’s HUGE!!

Swirls also sells art created by students from Pathlight. It’s great that they give back to society.

And… we were treated to quite a spread of regular cupcakes, tiny cupcakes and cake pops! Accompanied by lavender tea.

Very pretty!

Regulars cost about $3.95 – $4.10 and Tinys from $2.50 – $2.80.

Our top faves:

3rd: Tiramisu – you can taste actual coffee in the moist centre!

2nd: Vanilla Chocolate – vanilla cupcake with chocolate butter cream frosting. This might sound diabetic but it really wasn’t too sweet, and I appreciated its simplicity.

1st: Red Velvet – Crimson chocolate cake with cream cheese frosting! This one was really good – the red velvet went very well with the frosting.

They used pretty heart sprinkles ❤

Nuts about you – chocolate cupcake with peanut butter frosting! Not a fan of the M&M toppings though…

Cake pops: were a little too dense and too sweet for us… the texture is like chocolate

Our cupcake graveyard!! Couldn’t eat it all!

Colossal cupcake in the making

They have an alfresco dining area too, for those who prefer to chill by the river.

What I appreciate about Swirls is that they pay attention to what goes into the cupcakes – no artificial flavours used. Would visit again for that red velvet! Try our top 3 choices if you’re in the area. While you’re at it, order the lavender tea too – it does a good job in washing down all that sugar!!

Would have to agree with Alexis though – can’t beat Plain Vanilla
