cupcakes 2013

After months of engineering recipes for the richest and most moist mini cakes, testing over a hundred flavour combinations and fine-tuning decorative elements, the chefs at Futian Shangri-La, Shenzhen proudly present 18 varieties of specialty cupcakes.  These tasty treats will add delight to any occasion, whether it's a birthday bash, celebration at the office, girl's night out or just because.

“We are dedicated to producing only the finest cupcakes, using premium ingredients, including freshly prepared French pastry cream and Valrhona chocolate. The cupcakes are baked fresh daily with no additives.  As such, the number of cupcakes we bake will be limited to only 100 per day for retail sales.” said Matthew Bennink, Executive Chef of Futian Shangri-La, Shenzhen, “We put our heart and soul into creating this collection of cupcakes and had a lot of fun at the same time.  I hope that our passion will come across when guests get to savour them.” 

The collection is noteworthy for its contemporary flavour combinations and exquisite presentation.  For example, the Sour Cherry Cupcake with Sour Cream Frosting features a combination of bold and subtle flavours; and an elegant presentation of smooth white frosting contrasting against a deep dark midnight hue of the cake, topped with a delicately curved leaf made of white chocolate, finished with a fleck of gold leaf. 

The collection of cupcakes varies through the week, with six regular selections plus two rotating flavours offered daily.  The six options that are available everyday include Green Tea Cupcake with Vanilla Frosting, Chocolate Cupcake with Peanut Butter Frosting, Blueberry Cupcake with Blueberry Frosting, Mocha Cupcake with Espresso Frosting, Oreo Cookie Cupcake with Cream Cheese Frosting and Vanilla Cupcake with Vanilla Frosting.  Packaged in a signature candy striped box, Futian Shangri-La, Shenzhen’s cupcakes are a great treat to brighten up one’s day and also a thoughtful gift to express care for a friend, colleague or family member. 

For special occasions and festive periods, the pastry team is happy to customise the cupcakes to guests’ preferences.  48 hours advanced order is required for all custom orders and bulk orders of 20 pieces or more. The cupcakes are available at Rmb18 each.
