Describing Black Velvet as a ‘bakery’ would be a sinful understatement. The name alone evokes the luxe style one might find when stepping into their designer Darlinghurst concept store. Shiny stands of impeccably adorned cupcakes attract your gaze, while the room’s Chanel-inspired décor (complete with Breakfast At Tiffany’s references) make the store feel extra special. As expected, the cupcakes are gorgeous – try the bacon, golden gaytime or pink velvet flavours, or even the award-winning Lemon Vodka cupcake for a little indulgence. They don’t stop at cupcakes either, with birthday, corporate and wedding cake catering services.
