I’ve had my eye on this place for some months now but I never actually visited before, since it’s really difficult to find really nice cupcakes here in Korea. Finally a couple days ago, I decided to go in and I promise you it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.
First off, there are halloween decorations everywhere: giant fake spiders, pumpkins, a huge ET out front….Jack and Sally dolls
Seriously, show me anything from the Nightmare Before Christmas and I’ll stay.
On to the cupcakes:
Choices: Lemon, Vanilla, Mocha, Mint, Tiramisu, Strawberry, Dark Chocolate, Apple Cinnamon, Lemon & Red Velvet
I ended up getting the Tiramisu cupcake and it was really, really good.
The little RIP cookie at the top had a bit of a cinnamon and nutmeg in it and was really chewy and the little green bits of “grass” were slightly minty. The cupcake itself was really soft and light; it was mostly the icing with all the flavour which was probably a good idea or else it would have been too strong.
Prices range from ₩4,000 to ₩5,000 and they’re open every day except Mondays.
Also, if you’d like to have your cupcakes customized for order, you need to place orders 3 days in advance.
They have two locations:
Itaewon – 02-790-1108
Hongdae – 02-338-1109
Make sure you pick up a card from their shop and have it stamped, since every 10th cupcake is free!
