Review: Kitsch Cupcakes, Dubai

By | March 3, 2011

Driving up and down Jumeira Road i have passed by Kitsch Cupcakes several times. Never did i feel like trying it. It is also sold in Candylicious Dubai Mall but the place is always too crowded to take your there. Then in my Sugar Daddy’s Bakery post (link) a couple of readers told me of how good Kitsch cupcakes were, how that they are even better than Magnolia’s, so i have decided to try it…

One fine morning driving down Jumeira road we passed by and decided to try it. It was early in the morning and the street was empty so we found a parking space outside easily…

We went inside and to our dismay a big No Photography sign was there… i wonder why?! Anyways we chose half a dozen of mini cupcakes, two vanilla, twp red velvets, and two chocolates… then went outside to eat and photograph them on the white outdoors chair over looking Jumeirah Road.

The verdict? Well the cupcakes themselves were average. Nothing special. If anything the vanilla ones were a tad too dry.

The frosting however, is another story altogether… for it’s the BEST FROSTING I HAVE EVER TASTED!

It’s light, it’s creamy, it’s frothy, it’s sweet, it’s smooth, it’s GOOD! Now that is what frosting should taste like… the frosting… the frosting… the frosting… i wanted to go grab some vanilla cupcakes from magnolia bakery without frosting then come to Kitsch and have them frosted by them… that cupcake would have been the best cupcake on earth <3

    Kistch cakes – are TERRIBLE!!! and the service is even worse!!!!
    My husband ordered the red velvet cake from their – and it was STALE!!! LIKE 4 DAYS OLD OR SOMETHING!!!

    normally i wouldnt bother commenting, but the service was BLAH which is why i made a point to put my opinion down in black and white so that people can see and know!!! if you want to order a cake – check out GATEAUX at JBR!!! absolutely FABULOUS!!!! i have ordered withthem more than 10 times for office occassions and family birthdays.. weather teh size was 3 pounds or 10 pounds. NEVER BEEN LET DOWN!!!!

    KITSCH – is a terrible let down! to make it up, teh lady decided to send us cup cakes – 4 cupcakes to be exact!! WASTE OF MONEY!!!

    Hi,

    I work in the DIFC, just visited the Kitsch cupcake place with a friend to order a b’day cake. And as shocking a can be, the customer service guy was so rude and unfriendly, and his attitude was unbelivable! It was so untrue, we just stormed out of that place and will NEVER go back!
