- Cupcakes from Sherbet
I visited Sherbet in Maylands on
the way home
from a film
Apologies for the dodgy food styling, it was past lunch and I was starving.
Pictured here from the top, clockwise, are a vanilla raspberry, chocolate and vanilla. Vanilla seemed popular today because I snapped up the last one.
The bake shop is intimate and quaint (ie not too many tables) with a selection of savoury flans and sandwiches in addition to the sweet delights. And boy, do they have a lot…salted caramel chocolate slice (is salted caramel the new black of sweets?), scones, all sorts of cakes by the slice, all beautifully presented. I also tried the passionfruit pound cake (sorry I sliced it up before taking this!) which was moist and tangy.
Open for two months, Sherbet seems unlikely to remain a suburban secret, given anyone with a sweet tooth who read the STM article last weekend will have added it to the must go list.
Having travelled far and wide in search of cupcakes (Kalamunda, Sydney, Los Angeles) – I must say, these were pretty darn good – moist cake and simple, delicious but not overdone frosting.
And yes…they all tasted good and NO I did not actually eat all three, I shared. A bit. Click here

Well, I’m still hoping to get to the Magnolia Bakery in New York this year but until then I might have to make do with this one in not so far off Maylands:
Sherbet according to today’s STM has cupcakes that reminded the reviewer of Magnolia, a fave on Sex and the City. And they’re a bit cheaper than the ones at Rochelle Adonis.
I’ll drive anywhere for a good cupcake, will hopefully have time to eat and post the verdict within the week!
Also, putting my publicity hat on for a moment – aspiring cupcake makers only have until July 31 to enter the cookery categories of the Smoke Free Perth Royal Show. Of course you can also enter cakes, slices, scones and the like. See the website for full details – no excuses to all my friends who have said in the past they didn’t know how to enter.
