The Old Buttercream Company Of Mangalore

From Chia Shetts of Pupkins Kitchen comes an eatery where her special bakes can be enjoyed without ordering priorly, straight off the counter! Buttercream has warm decor, an inviting aura & EGGLESS pastries! In fact, all pastries except the Lemon Curd cupcakes are eggless, bringing the niche to the mainstream. They're open every day (except Monday) from 2 to 9:30 pm, but beware, they sell out fast!

Here's what we tried on our visit

Galaxy cake


Chocolatey. Magicky. Glittery. Some of the adjectives that come to mind upon simply beholding this brown beauty. It tastes luscious too, with a thick golden-glitter Galaxy chocolate glaze on top, & a gooey choco decadence in the middle. Kudos to them for keeping the Galaxy addition so real. Cheers to us for ordering this.

Toffee Cheesecake

Any birthday in school meant toffee being passed around & this toffee cream captures that exact flavour while bringing up the happiness of those memories. The thick cheese cake is of standard texture as is the brittle base. All the components complemented each other such that we can confidently say we liked this.

Mont Blanc

A dazzling, snowy slice, this had a premium, moist, white chocolate cake with a strategic layer of vanilla mousse in between, & white chocolate shavings over the top glaze. Taste wise, it was denser than most cakes we've had, & the white chocolate factors in a certain upgrade.

Lemon Curd Cupcake

Consider this proof of good things coming in small packages. With the sweet & citrus in perfect balance, the lemon curd will leave you smacking your lips. We reached there right at opening time, not allowing the cupcake enough time outside the fridge, so we didn't find it as moist as we'd like, but we're sure if we'd waited a while it would have been just right, much like everything else we tried.

Cold Coffee Cake

To put it simply, this was so good! It's a dense, but super moist, white chocolate cake with coffee cream in between & on top. We don't know how they do it, but the Coffee Flavour is spot on!

A chunky cookie baked to resemble a slice of deep dish pizza, this allows 1 to sink their teeth into brittle, warm & moist cookie dough, which feels like it's just out of the oven (probably is), & the interspersed molten chocolate chunks enhance the sweetness of the dough, as does the top layer of dependable Nutella . Pretty simple. Pretty good. For some it can be a bit overwhelming (perhaps dry) when ordered as a single item, while others may like it just as it is:)
