Cupcake review – Sparkle Cupcakery, Sydney

I came to the important decision that I needed to treat myself to a cupcake in Sydney: especially after the jetlag and speaking engagements. I mean gee golly, what a hard knock life! So I thought to myself, “Donna, you deserve it, darn it!”


Before I left London, a friend recommended Sparkles Cupcakery so I made the trip to Surry Hills and was not disappointed. I walked in to a beautiful little store with a rock and roll feel: black backdrop, dazzling drop lighting, and taking the cupcake experience to a different retro modern kind of style.

When I walked in, the smell was amazing and the guy behind the counter was SO friendly.

I had the gluten-free lemon cupcake and my good friend Ali had the raspberry and white chocolate. You could immediately taste how real these flavors are: not just some mix. The cupcakes are baked fresh daily with the most pure, exquisite ingredients.

I was tempted to try their doggie cupcakes but was advised against it… possibly not gluten free… possibly too doggie, but extremely popular with the canine customer.
