|Well hello there sweet heaven!|
This is not one of your whimsical cupcake bakery; so do not expect a carousel of fancy decors neither swing chairs or pastel walls when you come here; what welcomes you is the aroma of those cupcake goodness. The store is usually manned by two sweet young ladies, ready to serve and always make good recommendations especially for first timers. They have 9 cupcake flavour mainstays (as I wanna call it), minimal choices you see…this is good if you are an indecisive person. You can easily grab a half dozen and you have sampled most of them already. They do release special flavours from time to time.
A cupcake at Plain Vanilla costs SGD3.50 a piece; SGD19 for half a dozen. Majority of people says they are pretty expensive. You’d say this if you haven’t tasted it.. yet. Well perhaps then after which you’d say, “Oh, no wonder it’s pricey.” The cake itself was moist, fluffy and luscious. Each flavour has a different cupcake base. Different cake, different attack.. awesome. They made their cupcakes with just the right texture (not to mention sizeable) and has the right blend of ingredients that equates to a delicate balance of flavours that’d sure explode in your mouth. Oooh la la PV got them all. Why name it Plain then, whereas the taste was indeed extraordinary?! I love the simplicity goodness nonetheless. Their frosting was creamy, no artificial taste to piss you off. It just gets a little grainy at times and brings down the overall taste of the cupcake. The sweetness is just the right amount and not overpowering that one can’t handle.

This Strawberry White Chocolate is a stunner. I did not think this would appeal to me. Aside from the topping, there were little chunks of strawberries inside it. So creamy and rich, not too sweet. The cake was super light it seemed to melt in my mouth.
Plain Vanilla makes my heart sing. Their cupcake variety may be minimal but the overall taste got me hooked on them. I even leave them at room temperature for up to 2-3 days and they still taste superb, if not better. I wished they have zero calories in them so that I can chomp on them everyday..yup am stingy with my calories :)
