One of our clients (clients from my REAL job) gave us a box of cupcakes as treats – who am I to say no to that?!
Over the last 3-4 years, cupcakes have taken Hong Kong by storm. Complete Deelite was the first to establish, followed by Babycakes and a few others and they seem to be doing very well. I asked my friend at the former why that is and she gave a very good answer: Cupcakes to foreigners (she meant Americans, Canadians, Britons, etc.) is like Daan Tats (蛋撻) or “egg tarts” to Chinese.
Here’s a photo of what we were given … one poor cupcake got flipped and creamed (literally, HAR HAR) by other cupcakes during transit. The lemon ones are absolutely great!
Disclaimer: Complete Deelite is a friend’s business and the cupcakes (shown in the above photo) is a treat from them.
