BiteMe Cupcake Company
100 ft Road, Indiranagar
I’d seen Divya’s recipes for cupcakes, had heard about Bite Me’s cupcakes and pupcakes when she started her home bakery and now that Kingsley and Divya have started a store on 100 ft Road, I knew I had to try it.
Wonsaponatime - October 2010, to be precise - K attempted to get me cupcakes. He couldn’t find any so he convinced Spoonful of Sugar to bake chocolate muffins and add sprinkles on top. That was the first and last time I ate “cupcakes” in Bangalore.
Till last night, that is.
K and I hopped over to the beautiful little store located opposite Chroma on 100 ft road. Kingsley was around, upping the geeky quotient of cupcakes? :) And there they were: Butterscotch and Blueberry and Cookies & Cream and Dulce de leche and Red Velvet and Orange Marmalade. Nope, not my helpful elves. Just little bites of yumminess.
So! No more muffins pretending and aspiring to be cupcakes. Yay!
Moist (maybe a tad too moist?) and light, the cupcakes are delightful. The flavours aren’t overwhelming and being perfectly bite sized, you don’t have to worry about flavour boredom. They also hit the sweet spot of being well-priced - Rs 100 for 3. Is that a steal or what?!
Kingsley mentioned that they would start serving coffee soon so that’s a bonus. If you’re looking for plug-points because you want to hang out at a place that’s “startup friendly”, fret not - they’ve got it covered too.
Be warned, there’s also a downside to all this awesomeness: You start off eating one and before you know it, you’ve got fingers sticky with 4 out of the 6 flavours in the box. Many a slip between the cup(cake) and the lip and all that. Heh.
They’re open from 11AM to 9PM every day. (Except Tuesdays, I think)
