Paddington’s Newest Gourmet Cupcake Shop Is Now Open

Brisbane has a fair share of cupcake shops, but there are only a few stores offering vegan and gluten-free options. If you’re thinking of indulging minus the guilt, check out Sweethearts Cupcakes, a new cupcake shop in Paddington offering healthy versions of gourmet cupcakes.

Sweethearts Cupcakes has both permanent flavours and rotating specials. Whilst Jo’s cupcake shop offers a plethora of cupcakes to choose from, their signature fluffy vanilla bean cupcake with raspberry icing topped with fondant is a must-try. For the health-conscious who wants to satisfy their sweet tooth a bit, there’s the vegan red velvet with vegan chocolate ganache and gluten-free orange, almond, and toffee cupcake.

This pink-themed cupcakery is led by Jo James-Watts, who dreamed of owning her own cake shop since she was 8 years old. Her favourite artistic outlet is decorating cakes. Now that her two kids have both grown up she already has the time to take this passion to the next level.

“Cake isn’t just about enjoying something delicious, it’s about connection. It’s what we have to mark any special occasion and celebrate life’s special moments with and appreciate who is in ours,” Jo said.
