Auckland: Bluebells Cakery

Bluebells Cakery is now my new local cake stall living a 5min walk away which is dangerous eek. I finally made it here after completing my Dry July. I couldn’t believe how little the shop is. Tucked in a random set of shops on Hillsborough Road its definitely a great place to pick up an afternoon treat for takeaway. There are only a couple of sharing tables – one outside, one inside.

Bluebells has made its rep for its cupcakes, and they do not disappoint. I bought a small selection for my workies purely so I could try more without feeling guilty haha. I don’t like coffee but I took a small bite of the coffee cupcake and its not overpowering so don’t be afraid to try this one because it has a great texture with walnut mixed in the batter.
If you are a chocolate lover, get the lamington cake, its decadent and moist without being overly sweet and has a cheeky jam filling. My favourite choice was the strawberry cream yoyo. The yoyo just crumbles and is incredibly light. The filling isn’t overly sweet and its is filled in a good proportion to the cookie. Just order this one!!

My favourite sweet delight is brownie and I was sadden by this one as the texture wasn’t quite right. It was just a bit dense and missed that crunch. If someone told me it was a choc rasp cake it would be perfect. It’s a shame because the flavour combination is great – but choc and rasp go hand in hand.

Overall the cupcakes really don’t disappoint and the value for money is extremely worth it for size and use of quality ingredients. I def recommend Bluebells! Great sweet treats!
