Plain Vanilla [Editors’ pick!] Vanessa, the owner, practised law for three and a half years before realising her long-time goal of opening a bakery. She had been baking since her second year at university, and it was during a Contract Law class about plain vanilla loans that she came up with the idea of opening a bakery – and the name. Cute!

Twelve Cupcakes [ Editors’ pick!]
Twelve branches islandwide, including the largest store at #01-52 Millenia Walk
|And while we don’t understand it, we appreciate that not everyone likes frosting, so here are a couple of places that make great un-iced muffins…|
Chocolat N’ Spice
With giant freshly baked muffins priced from $1.20 to $1.50 each, Chocolat N’ Spice is extremely popular and often sells out around lunchtime. Located in or near hawker centres, all branches open at 8.30am, so get there early. Expect a long queue at the Tanjong Pagar branch if you go during your lunch break. Flavours include chocolate chip, walnut, mocha, orange peel and raisin, double chocolate, blueberry and cranberry.
Block 320 Shunfu Road, #02-12
Looking for healthier muffins containing no butter and less sugar? These fresh, moist ones come in around 16 flavours, including blueberry, white chocolate chip, cookies and cream, banana and walnut, chocolate chip, strawberry, mixed fruit, and apple and raisin. They cost $1.50 each or $8.10 for six.
