We actually found this place by coincidence as we were looking for a place to catch up with group of friends and kids. As it is located opposite Canadian International School, parking was a breeze during the public holiday.
As you enter the shop, you will see their display of cupcakes and menu. Whatever you see there, it is all they have. You basically have to place your order on the counter, pay and they will deliver to you. Most of the seating is actually located at the back after the counter. Very comfortable, with short table and chairs. Unfortunately the lighting is quite dark, feels that not much effort was put in decorating the place.
From the name of the store, you know already what is their specialty. We ordered Red Velvet ($3.50) and Blueberry Summer ($3.50). Both cupcakes are moist, full of flavour and moist. The frosting only cover half of the cupcakes and it is not too sweet so don't need to worry that you kids will go hyper after too many cupcakes. At the bottom of my blueberry summer cupcake, I was surprised to find some fresh blueberries in it. While the cupcake is nice, we find that it is lacking of the OMPHHHH factor.

For their coffee, they use the coffee beans roasted by Nylon at Everton Park. Their latte ($4.50) is smooth, creamy and without much bitter taste afterwards. Good balance between the coffee and milk. A good latte indeed. For the tea, they use Gryphon tea @ $5.50 per pot. As for the other cold drinks, we are told that they have run out of it.

Unlike their cupcakes, we find the service slow, unfriendly and 'lack of love'. When our group walk in, it seems they are not keen on serving their customers and prefer to have their shop empty. The cupcakes came at first, but our drink come a good 10 to 15 minutes later after we finish the cupcakes. Hopefully the management can address this matter.
Overall, we find the cupcake and drinks here are good. With the combination of less sugar and more flavour, it is a plus point for this shop. The price is quite steep, however comparable to those in the market. Cheers!!
