My oh my! I am so blessed to be given this opportunity to review FOOD! To think how God has heard my ramblings (I was commenting on my FB page that I was down to my last bar of chocolates the other day) and here He sent me an offer to review CUPCAKES!
6 of each flavors for Nutella, Nutella choc chips and Nutella raisins. All 18 of them! Yummmssss!!
Since this is my first food review, I think I'll do the Q&A version so that you guys can know more about this brand and its products:
Q: Tell me a brief history on how you started Khapkeks.
A: I started Khapkeks because cupcakes is the rave now, but I never liked the icing or buttercream - and because I had a lot of friends who prefer their cakes without the beautiful SWEET cream topping. My main motivation to start Khapkeks was my hubby - who is very particular about food, could eat 5-6 of nutella cupcakes at once. So one wild SMS to my sister to ask if her friends want to order, and within ten minutes - I had my first two boxes order.
Q: How do you come up with the brand name?
A: Then it came to setting up a FB page, names suggestion started coming in eg "sweet sensation", "lovely delight" - No, people will forget the name the next minute. I need something people will remember, but never be confused and unique - Khapkeks was created on September 23rd 2011.
Q: Any secret ingredients or techniques in making it?
A: Khapkeks are made of pure butter, omega eggs, sugar & flour. Secret ingredient? They're homemade with love :)
Q: What is special with your cupcakes or different selling points which you want people to know about your cupcakes?
A: I make cupcakes without icing - so customers get to eat what they paid for. Looks can be deceiving, it is more important about how you are within - same goes to cupcakes. We wouldn't want a beautiful cake - only to realize the cake is too hard, or doesn't use butter. If there are request for buttercream cupcakes -I will gladly accommodate but my main business is still on my classic Khapkeks. I use purely butter, and omega eggs - that's something that you don't always get in your cakes as some bakers use margarine or dairy spread to lower their costing.
I hope it's not because I was deprived off chocolates for a day or two, but the cupcakes are REALLY GOOD! In fact, I was already highly anticipating the cupcakes arriving at my doorstep and I kept telling myself, don't get my hopes so high, just in case it doesn't taste as good as I imagined it would be...
But the moment I got it (and profusely thanking Su Yi, the friendly cupcakes seller) I carefully peeled open the tape on the box and saw it:
Oh my glorious Nutella cupcakes! (** insert trumpets and all sorts of harmoniously playing musical instruments here for sound effect**)
My eyes went straight to the one with Nutella in it of course. Did I tell you one time I bought a big bottle of Nutella and almost whacked it finish just like that? No spreading on bread or anything... just a spoon and a happy me, happily scooping it away.. yummssss....
Okay, back to my review... see that glorious and yummylicious looking cupcakes on my hand? It looks good, and taste even better! Don't believe me? Let's see what my guinea pigs gotta say after they tried out these cupcakes:
The rest of the cupcakes were eaten by SIL's children, all saying "Nutella inside? Yumsss!" Enough talking, one last picture for you to look at... hahaha... see how my Alyson is eyeing the cupcake in her brother's hand? Ben looks distracted as he was watching Kungfu Panda on the TV, but trust me, he is enjoying the cupcake!
To sum up my first (hopefully many more to come!!) food review, all I can say is:
YUMMYLICIOUS TO THE MAX!
