NEOPOLITAN, maple ba­con and Golden Gay­time are just some of the de­li­cious flavours com­ing out of the Crave Cup­cakes kitchen.

Mark Nor­folk and his wife Jill Nor­folk took over the busi­ness one year ago and have since been com­ing up with amaz­ing new cre­ations.

Mr Nor­folk said while they kept flavours from the past owner, cre­at­ing new ones was part of grow­ing the busi­ness.

He takes pho­tos of his colour­ful cup­cakes and posts them on his Face­book page where they get at­ten­tion from peo­ple all around the globe.

“We have lots of com­ments from peo­ple in Toowoomba and all parts of the world,” he said.

“We have the stan­dard flavours but we have also de­vel­oped our own.

“We look around and do a bit of re­search to de­velop our own style.”

The store of­fers five sta­ple cup­cakes a day - red vel­vet, vanilla bean, salted caramello, choco­late and Golden Gay­time and mixes it up with a few other flavours.

Mr Nor­folk said he en­joyed ex­per­i­ment­ing to make new flavours.

“We of­fer ve­gan as well as dairy-free and gluten-free cup­cakes,” he said.

“We just changed our Golden Gay­time cup­cakes so it is closer to the ac­tual ice-cream. It has fill­ing in it now.” Crave Cup­cakes also takes or­ders for events such as wed­dings and baby show­ers. It is open from Mon­day to Satur­day at 86 Rus­sell St. Check out the cup­cakes by search­ing Crave Cup­cakes on Face­book.
