One of our favourite things about the Sexy Xmas party was the amazing food we had – Mini burgers, chocolate dipped strawberries and bananas, and of course, Sweet Secrets cupcakes (shown above in their distinctive purple packaging)! Sweet Secrets is tucked away down Graham Street in NoHo, and is the most adorable little bakery where you can sit, enjoy a cup of tea and enjoy a slice of cake or one of their many-flavoured cupcakes. Unlike many cupcakes in Hong Kong, Sweet Secrets have a very light and fluffy cake base, and a not-too-sweet and creamy topping, which makes them not only deliciously moreish, but also not feel like you’ve eaten something heavy. All the cakes and sweet treats are created on the premises.
The flavours change regularly, but our favourites are the Banana, Strawberry ‘n Cream (above) and their signature Velvety WOW (chocolate with a cream cheese topping shown below). Sarah, who runs Sweet Secrets has a real passion for her business, and is always thinking of new and creative flavour combinations, like Zippy Zucchini! She will also go above and beyond the call of duty to make custom cakes for you – when you stop in you have to ask her to tell you some of her funniest cake stories! She has had some crazy requests, but always does her best to create something wonderful, including cakes for children’s birthday parties, or in creative shapes.
For the festive season, Sweet Secrets have created custom cupcake designs which you can order for your Christmas party, or as a treat for a friend. If you want to add a bit of wow, you can ask about their cupcake trees, which are great to set up on a coffee table for people to pick their cupcakes from.
Sweet Secrets has the feel of a traditional small bakery business where you can stop by and get a warm welcome and a little piece of sweet heaven to brighten up your day. Let us know your thoughts – have you tried Sweet Secrets? Where is your favourite bakery in Hong Kong?
