Last Saturday the April sun shone bright and warm over this fair city. The pretty pastels of both the decor and the cupcakes bathed in the light at the opening of Bluebells Cakery in Hillsborough. Karla Goodwin’s picture-perfect cupcakes have been a hit at The French Markets for some time now, and now the baking beauty has her own shop to lure you in.
There’s a lot going on in the world of cupcakes right now, but I think Karla gets it just right but managing to keep hers away from gaudy territory, instead rooting them in the land of dreamy, delicious nostalgia. Treats like Russian Fudge and Coconut Ice are also a classic success. Karla is aiming to have a coffee machine up and running very soon, follow her progress on facebook.
Hoorah for injecting some much-needed atmosphere into that part of the city! A sensory delight for grown-ups and fairy/princess/cupcake-obsessed daughters alike.
Bluebells Cakery, currently open Fridays and Saturdays 9am to 4pm, 161A Hillsborough Rd, Hillsborough.
