Cupcakes @ Pretty Frosting, Amcorp Mall, Petaling Jaya

Butter Cupcake with Buttercream

I confess I have a weakness for pretty and cute stuff! Ever since, I read about
Pretty Frosting in the NST and ling239's blog, I have been itching to try their cupcakes.

Butter Cupcake with Buttercream

My first attempt was met with dissapointment as the stall was not opened one Sunday since they were busy for an event. Luckily I went back another time, as I struck gold. I was speechless when I saw their pretty cupcakes - everything looked so fantastic, I had a hard time limiting myself to just 6 cupcakes.

Carrot Walnut Cupcake

There's 4 varieties available - plain butter, orange, carrot walnut and chocolate. All of the cupcakes are RM3 except the carrot walnut, which is sold at RM3.50. They're not too big - about 3 1/2 inches diameter and about 1 1/2 inches tall.

Chocolate Cupcake with Chocolate Ganache

I brought these home for desserts and my mother loved the carrot walnut cupcake. Very fresh, and not too sweet. I liked the soft texture of the cake.

Orange Cupcake with Buttercream

The chocolate one was very good too - soft with a not overly moist crumb. That particular flavour was Splashie Boy's favourite.

Chocolate Cupcake with Chocolate Ganache

The orange cupcake had just a hint of orange flavour while the butter cupcake was pretty ordinary tasting. Texture of the cake was not as light compared to the carrot walnut cupcake.

I reckon I'm hooked on their yummy carrot walnut cupcake. Drop by during the weekend at Amcorp Mall and grab a few.

I ate their cupcakes before. My personal favourite is the Chocolate Cupcake. It is moist and not too sweet and the chocolate icing compliments the cake. is their website and the designs are very pretty.

JM said...

Way too pretty to eat!!! but perfect to bring to potluck parties! :)

Talking abt sweet looking stuff, went to a shop called "sbread" at Midvalley Gardens (Lower Ground Floor)and their choice of bread spreads r unique. Must try the 3 types of kaya. My fav is the yam kaya with real chunks of yam in it....served warm on thick toast!!

Unknown said...

OMG u r right!!!...was at Gardens and popped by "sbread". Really good spreads! Stuffed myslf silly with 3 types of toasts and my fav was the thai chilli paste with chicken floss!
Also ordered the pandan kaya. Really different from the ones we get at kopitiams!!

Unknown said...

I went to try this SBREAD after reading both comments. You are both right, it was WONDERFUL!
My hubby and I ate 3 types of toppings. My personal favourite was the Yam sbread but my hubby liked the sambal chicken floss one. Definitely a must try for those who love a good KAYA (with a twist). Oh... the bread to try is charcoal bread. Its very unique. Ahhh... just thinking about it makes me wanna go have some NOW!

eliz said...

Does the buttercream icing taste buttery or sweet? I like icing that is buttery..For me cupcakes are really cute but the biggest turn off for me is the super sweet sugar icing!

This site has really2 lovely cupcakes.

I wanted to order some, but sadly its non-halal. *sob..sob..* She lives in Penang but will be in K.L for the whole month of June.
