With the donut craze fizzling out in Vietnam it's time for the newest overpriced Western sweet to have its day in the sun. Fly Cupcake opened a new cafe around the corner from my school. I saw it going up a few days ago and stopped by after work this morning to see if it had opened... and sure enough cupcakes were ready to fly off the shelf! I picked up a box of four to sample: strawberry, coconut, coffee, and oreo. My God they were creamy and rich and decadent and yummy.
While the frosting was a bit overbearing, the cake itself was perfect. Moist and delicate!
The cafe itself was adorable, very cute - think overstuffed pillows in pastel colors on soft sofas and decorative coffee mugs. I'll have to stop by for coffee and cakes another time. They have a few locations in town, the new shop is at 25A Tu Xuong in District 3.
