Other than being a wanderlust, I am also a foodie. I love fine foods and I wouldn’t mind spending money on good food. As long as I will have the best, then I do not mind the cost. So when Vera told me about the little Cupcake place at Community 5, Tema, I wanted to visit and have a taste of the creamy goodie she so happily spoke about. I had been seeing the place everyday on my way to work but it was always closed. I guess I go to work early then.
So early this month, Vera and I decided to have a little chitchat at the cupcake café before we go home. It is easy to find – just right opposite Tema Secondary School former small gate. When we entered, we were met with a homely atmosphere. The interior has been decorated with colourful items mostly pink and this reminded me of a dollhouse – Barbie to be specific. We were welcomed by the Owner who is an elderly woman with very beautiful hair. I couldn’t help than gawk at her hair.
We had a little chat and giggles then asked if there was any place to sit so Vera and I could talk some more but she said she has no place to build a washroom so she cannot offer a place to sit. She went on to tell me that some of her clients told her they do not mind, she should go on ahead and create a sitting area but she will never be comfortable knowing she cannot offer a washroom. I was very disappointed because the porch can hold a couple of people who would just like to sit out in the open and enjoy a cupcake with coffee. I then asked what was available to which she told us and asked one of her workers to see to us.
We had the red velvet cupcake with whipped cream which was divine. The packaging was really inviting. The coffee was so smooth, you couldn’t tell whether it has been brewed or it is instant. it really tasted good and the packing for the milk and sugar was super cool.
We however wished there was a place to eat. The porch reminds me of a scene in a romantic movie and would have been perfect for a lazy afternoon hangout with a friend or lover. Too bad the cupcakes are to go. We do not have many places like this in tema so it is such a brilliant idea.
