The other day while perusing instagram I saw scrolled past a photo of Lola Berry’s of a gorgeous little cupcake aptly named the Unicorn Milkshake. The name alone would have made me buy it but the fact it is as cute as its name suggests had me rather desperate to find the creator of such a little beauty.
So, while on the way to the Cake Expo with my sister on Saturday, I very nearly crashed the car when I realised we were in Ascot Vale and on the very same road as Mr Nice Guy’s Bakeshop. I spotted the light aqua shop front and managed not to squeal. But, we were on route to the Show Grounds so I made a mental note to return.
The Cake Expo was… disappointing. I took a couple of photos for wedding cake inspiration but that was about it. And so, we decided to get our cake and eat it too at Mr Nice Guy’s on the way home. Yeeeeeees.
There were so many options… I was seriously tempted by the Elvis.Our cupcakes arrived before our drinks. Sister’s is on the left a gluten and sugar free chocolate number. My 2 minis are on the right, the Orange Creamsicle and the Unicorn Milkshake. My almond milk chai. There was a variety of dairy-free options and the chai was a syrup that they brewed on site. The Unicorn Milkshake even had glitter. Delicious! I know where I’ll be going next time I need a cupcake fix!
