This cafe with a mission is located on Pornprapanimit Road as you head from Sukhumvit Road towards Lake Map Prachan, just before the Planet Football Stadium.
Here you will find many modern apartments and a number of traditional small businesses such as fast food ventures, a gym, cafes, laundries, beauty salons and the occasional larger restaurant.
It is a much quieter region of the city, being more residential.
The business is owned by Sam and TJ who are of Thai/American and American/ Bulgarian origin respectively. The duo opened the cafe in May 2017, not just as a cafe, but with a mission statement behind their idea.
Their vocation is to offer support for men and women across South East Asia, who may have been exploited in one way or another. They work alongside partners who are non-profit making organisations, offering training and employment opportunities to disadvantaged people.
They help underprivileged people by caring for them, offering spiritual, mental and physical support, so they can be a success in life. Their slogan is a simple one. “We’re changing lives, ONE cupcake at a time”.
From the outside, it is a simple white fronted building with darkened glass, and appears to be of a compact nature. But step inside and it is far from what you would expect.
There is a black and while tiled floor, a counter with a kitchen area behind it, tables and chairs and hanging ceiling lighting. What makes it different, is the large scatter cushioned seats and wooden tables, which look as though they are home made. Add to this the incredibly petite tables and chairs, devised with children in mind and you have an unusual but creative setting for a cafe.
There is a blackboard on one of the walls, a shelve stack with individual square slots, hand drawn pictures, with additional strip lighting at one end.
As the name of the business suggests, this is a premises that sells, in the main, delicious cupcakes. They offer the cakes in different sizes, flavours and quantities, and even have a non-dairy, gluten free offering.
For instance you can purchase individual cupcakes in vanilla, chocolate, caramel, strawberry, peanut butter, raspberry, lemon and many other delicious flavours. The menus changes daily so visitors have a new experience each time they enter the cafe.
You can also order in batches, such as boxes of four, six or twelve in regular or small sized cakes. Some of the cakes decorations are ingenious, displaying a creative touch from those who work here. The various colours and designs and original ideas are worth observing.
Additionally they offer a range of smoothies, shakes, teas, coffees and soft drinks. They can even design and make you a cake for a special occasion, such as a birthday party or wedding. Simply ask at the venue for details.
Fancy learning to make your very own cupcakes? Well both adults and children can go along and undergo instruction in the art of baking cakes, which of course you can take home with you at the end of the training session.
They offer group classes and even one on one instruction and for the more adventurous or artistic amongst you, you can take lessons on fondant decoration, icing work and learn the true skills of a confectioner.
The kids will love getting messy with flour, eggs, milk and icing in a fun but educational scenario.
Now this takes things to the extreme when it comes to indulging people. Sit down, relax and enjoy a foot massage followed by a cupcakes and beverage upon completion, for the ultimate in pampering.
There are five fully trained people employed at this venue. They have undergone in house tuition, a probation period before finally receiving barista training, so they can not only bake delicious cakes, they can work wonders with the coffee too. They welcome you with a smile and service is always fast and efficient.
They offer a delivery service, a kids only zone, discounts when you check in using social media and for students during summer break.
This is a fantastic way to provide help for the less fortunate people in South East Asia and at the same time, bring to the table delicious baking and beverages.
Pay them a visit and see what all the fuss is about.
