Les Bébés Cupcakery is an adorable little cupcake shop designed by the multidisciplinary artists from JC Architecture, in Taipei. One can say that this is, literally, the home of sweets. The place is quite transparent and this is actually a good thing because it gives you the possibility to look inside and observe everything: from the exquisite little cakes to the simple white interior, adorned with bursts of yellow.
At a closer look, the cupcake shop looks like a gift box and if you ask the architects, they will say that this is exactly what they had in mind. “We wanted to create a space that derives from the actual product itself. We took the idea of the gift packaging and studied the movement of folding.”If you walk down the streets of Taipei, it is impossible not to notice the shop. A floor-to-ceiling glass window interrupted by a massive door with a small yellow detail and a black-framed box with a yellow interior displaying cupcakes is a little bit hard to ignore. Would you go for desert in a cupcake shop such as Les Bébés Cupcakery?
