Sweet treats

SWEET REMEDY is the cupcake equivalent of the shop in Chocolat. 

The Leederville cafe sells every type of cupcake imaginable and they’re all made fresh in-store.

When I visited during lunchtime on the school holidays there was a fun atmosphere and kids were decorating their own creations. 

For $6.50 parents can buy a vanilla dream cupcake and a decorating bag, and let their kids go wild.

And if they need to burn off some energy after all that sugar, there’s a play area out the back.

There was just one person serving but he did a great job, paying close attention to customers’ needs.

Sweet Remedy even has a fully-loaded ‘cupshake’ for those wanting their hit in drink form.

The cafe specialises in cupcakes and barista-made coffee, but also sells light meals including toasted jaffles, bagels, wraps, paninis, gourmet pies, croissants and toasted sandwiches for kids.

I was there for the cupcakes, but did the sensible thing and ordered a toasted mexican wrap ($9.95) for some savoury balance.

The tasty wrap was crammed with cheese, sour cream, beans, capsicum, avocado, corn and salsa. It was a solid build-up to my coconut paradise cupcake ($5.20). Just like in Chocolat, it has just the right amount of everything. 

The dense cupcake was soft and moist, and topped with buttery icing, toasted coconut and a Raffaello chocolate.

Pure heaven.

I washed it down with a refreshing lemongrass and ginger tea ($4).

On the way out I couldn’t help myself and snagged a gluten-free hazelnut fudge cupcake ($5.20).

The creamy frosting was moreish and dusted with decadent chocolate–delicious.
