Mychelles Baketique Information
Mychelles Baketique is located in the lobby of Battersea's eco-friendly Hotel Rafayel. They offer a range of sweet and savoury pastries, afternoon tea and a tasting menu of cheeses, meats and wines.
Since relocating to the 5th floor of Harvey Nichols, this cupcake concession is even more kooky, fun, unique and so different to any other cupcake brand I know. Completely stands out in-store from all other concessions with their amazing 90 calories bite size mini cupcakes in the cutest little egg cartons - such a clever idea. Peanut butter and jelly flavour is a must to try! They have even made the most amazing hampers for x mas filled with such innovative goodies - if you haven't gone to Mychelles Baketique - then you haven't tried a good cupcake. Definitely 5 stars for me!
This is one of the most amazing bakeries ive ever been to! The double chocolate chunk fudge cupcake was oozing with chocolate and left me dreaming about my next one! The decor was beautiful. I felt like I was in an apartment in Paris, funky and chic. The owner, Michelle Husserl gave us a free tasting of all the new flavors they were sampling including pina colada. The cupcakes even had a mini umbrella, cherry pineapple and straw coming out of it! This place is a breath of fresh air to London and definitely sets the bar in creative and mouth watering cupcakes!! I am a life long fan!!
I came to Mychelle's Baketique via a coupon for afternoon tea in the hotel restaurant (the actual shop is located in the hotel's lobby area, though when I passed by on my way in and out there was no one to be seen). The coupon claimed the value would be £21 and promised delicious cupcakes and a delicate blend of tea.
The reality was a tea pot of Tetleys and four stale mini cupcakes (by mini I mean the bottom of the cup cake was perhaps the size of a £2 coin).
The waiting staff of the hotel restaurant where the tea was held had even discussed amongst themselves (but easily within out earshot!) that the cakes were stale, but their manager told them that this wasn't the restaurant's concern. Whose concern the whole thing was I'm not exactly sure. As I mentioned above the actual cup cake shop in the hotel lobby was completely deserted.
Glad I didn't have to pay for the experience as the coupon was a gift. No way was it worth £21. My advice is to avoid this 'Baketique', you can buy better cupcakes in the supermarket.
We had an offer to go to this place for cupcakes and tea, which we thought would be a treat. When we got there we were directed to a dining room in the (odd and seemingly empty) Hotel Rafayel. The Baketique was apparently closed. For the equivalent price of £21 we were given 4 small, stale cupcakes (between 2) and two small pots of English tea. One of the old cakes was so revolting I couldn't finish it! Plus the hotel's teapots and sideplates were dirty and the staff pre-occupied with their own conversations. (And, one of the sinks in the toilet was blocked.) I can only be glad that we did not have to pay the full price for this slightly unpleasant experience! Please save your money, honestly Starbucks or Costa offer a better tea and cupcake experience for fraction of the price.
Omg! Whhaaat! This is totes mc goates amaze!
I read about this cupcake shop in a blog and decided to give it a go for Valentine's Day. I absolutely LOVE vegan cupcakes (my girlfriend's allergy turned into my delight). I had to order it special order, but it was well worth the wait. Highly recommend both vegan and standard cupcakes.
I stumbled upon this gem of a cupcake shop and I was blown away! The decor is so chic, funky and elegant that you feel like your in someone's livingroom. The cupcakes look like art and melt in your mouth. I will be going back as much as I can.
Stayed at Hotel Rafayel and went to the bakery. Absolutely LOVED it. Fresh cupcakes baked every morning all in bright colours. My best flavour was a peanut butter cupcake with jam in the middle. You can tell the owner is American
