Mister Donut becomes … Mister Cupcake?

By Kay

All right, we should have seen this coming, especially after Mister Donut Japan came out with original croissant doughnuts earlier this year. But that doesn’t mean we’re any less thrilled with the news — this coming week, Mister Donut will be releasing their very own cupcakes. And hey, even if “Mister Donut” is selling something that’s not a doughnut, we’re definitely not complaining. In fact, we’ll be waiting in line to get a taste of the colorful cupcakes. Let’s see what tempting flavors will be available!

The “N.Y. Cupcakes” from Mister Donuts will come in three flavors — lemon, chocolate and blueberry — each topped with plenty of whipped cream in bright pop colors. As you can tell from the name, the cakes are based on the New York style cupcakes that have already been the talk of sweets lovers here in Japan, and they’re done in a style they’re describing as “otona kawaii” (“adult cute”, literally) that’s girly but not too childish.

And to ensure all that lovely cream doesn’t get smudged when you take the cakes home, each cupcake bought to-go will come in a clear plastic container. They even have a stylish black and pink box for when you want to give the cakes as a gift.

As for the three flavors, they’ve apparently taken a lot of care in selecting the combination of the base cake, whipped cream and topping.

The lemon cupcake is made from a standard base cake and a refreshing lemon whipped cream, topped with lovely pastel-colored sprinkles.

The chocolate cupcake has with whipped cream containing chocolate sauce and chocolate flakes, crowned with a cream filled cocoa cookie on top.

The blueberry cupcake contains dried blueberries, to which they’ve added blueberry flavored whipped cream and actual dried blueberries.

The cupcakes will be sold for 194 yen each at Mister Donut shops across Japan until the end of December.

Tried the lemon cupcake yesterday. Light and fluffy cake with a just-sweet-enough frosting... they definitely do doughnuts better but for a first crack at cupcakes, they were pretty good. Made me miss the boutique cupcakeries back home though!

It's not like cupcakes are hard to make at home, and would be much nicer than anything brought from MrDonuts.

I'll stick with Krispy Kreme or When I go back to S. Korea or the states, Dunkin at least I don't have to worry about being bombarded with ONLY Custard and Creme and Chocolate.

If they really wanted to sell them to me, they should have a super kawaii catgirl or catboy do the sales for these cute cupcakes ;3

Mister Donut used to have GREAT muffins back in the '90s. Their cheese muffin was especially good.
