10 Great Cupcake Shops in Melbourne, Australia!

Where to get some delicious cupcakes in Melbourne?

There is a good chance you'll be treated to cupcakes when visiting Melbourne, Australia. These cupcakes are a local handmade delight and they are made in the most delicious flavors.

They are a great treat to hand out at parties or at special occasions, such as birthdays, weddings, and business events. Several stores can make wedding cupcakes for your most perfect day or a special treat in the colors of your company logo. And let us not forget the very colorful and tasty cupcakes for a children's party. Those cupcakes for kids will be loved by young and old!

Delivery?
Have a look at a store's website to see if they also deliver cupcakes to your area. In that case you can order your cupcakes online to have them delivered or you can pick them up yourself at a later time. Most stores have a minimum order size for delivery. They deliver to addresses inside the central business district of Melbourne and up to a maximum distance around it.

Food allergies?
Those with food sensitivities and food allergies will be pleased to know that certain stores create custom cupcakes that suit their needs. However, none of them make guarantees that their baked products will be free of certain ingredients. They do take care to prevent cross-contamination and to provide you with non-allergen cupcakes.

Cupcake stands or cupcake towers?
Cupcake stands are available for hire at some of these stores. Contact them well in advance to be sure you have one for your event.

Online cupcake stores?
This article also includes some online cupcake stores that do not have a physical address. You can order online and have the products delivered to your address. If you wish to save on delivery costs, you can pickup yourself by appointment.

In this article I'll share some great and well-known places to buy cupcakes in Melbourne. I will list cupcake shops in Melbourne's CBD first and then stores outside of it. Other than that, the list of cupcake stores is in no particular order.

Little Cupcakes

Little Cupcakes is a little store with a great variety in cupcake flavors. This was the first store I was introduced to after arriving in Melbourne, Australia. Everyone has their own taste but I definitely enjoyed the cupcakes here!

Little Cupcakes does custom designs (including weddings) and they deliver to addresses in the central business district of Melbourne. You can also order your favorite flavors online.

Little Cupcakes actually has two stores with the one at Degraves Street being the most well-known one. The other store is located at TG06 Goldsbrough Lane. The store at Degraves Street is small but if you are lucky you might be able to sit and enjoy your cupcakes. It is more common to purchase a box of cupcakes and to enjoy them elsewhere.

The third Cupcake Bakery is located on the corner of Flinders Lane and Elizabeth Street. They also have several stores in Sydney so if you like their cupcakes, you can also get them there.

That’s a concept I haven’t heard of before – a cupcake shop! It sounds like a great idea. The cakes in your photos look delicious. Melbourne’s a bit far for me to go to buy cupcakes, but I’ll enjoy visiting the websites of the bakeries!

@AliciaC: I'm sure they also have cupcake shops in Canada! There are quite a few in Melbourne and I've also seen several in Sydney, Australia. You should try them when you come here for a holiday!

Try 'A Bunch of Cakes' in Spotswood. Best unique cupcakes I've ever had, things like 'raspberry lemonade' and 'kingston bisuit' and the amazing 'salted caramel'. Seriously the best cupcakes I've ever had!
