Luscious Creations is a bakery in Port Coquitlam specializing in custom cakes.
It's a little bakery located just under Me n' Eds in downtown PoCo. Not much of an ambiance to speak of since their cakes and cupcakes are more meant for take-out.
The lady that was there was really friendly. She greeted us as soon as we walked in and didn't hesitate to tell us about the different cupcake flavours they had. We decided to get one of each. They were all very delicious, moist on the inside and not too sweet. Even the icing on top was at the right sweetness. I especially loved the raspberry flavour with whirls of raspberry in the cream cheese icing on top. I could eat 10 of those!!
Thoroughly enjoyed each and every flavour, will definitely go back for more!
We went to Luscious Creations last week as we have purchased a coupon deal for truffle pops to use at our upcoming reception. We met with Nathalie Escudero, who was a joy to meet and also took the time to sit with us and listen to our needs. She was wonderful at making recommendations and did not pressure us at all. We were so impressed she is going to make our cake topper for us as well! :)
Wonderful little bakery that many may not know about as it's a hidden gem in Poco, but highly recommend as the service is so incredible! Prices are so reasonable as well and they can make ANYTHING into a cake for you - just give them a picture! It's so nice to see someone so dedicated to the work that do and would definitely go back. Having worked in the hospitality industry for over 14 years, I know good service and this was it! :)
It sure tastes like it. I make cupcakes at home from a mix that are just as good. These are not bad, nor are most cupcake places, except that one by Coquitlam Centre that pretends to be healthy. i just don't get it. Prices are comparable and so are the cupcakes here. Part of the problem is a bad location but really cupcakes are a fad. Their other cakes look nice but I don't know how much they would cost.
I have never walked by this place and seen a customer in there - ever. I went in once, got cupcakes for my family dinner and although they were all eaten in a couple of days, no one asked anything about them or said a word, like a box of twinkies or something. When I'm paying that much for cupcakes I expect some comments. But, the lack of comment spoke voumes. I give the place another 6 months.
The location is a little obscure (near the PoCo court house below a Pizza restaurant) but the cupcakes and truffles are amazing. They taste great and are highly sought-after by our kids (since we don't often get such tasty treats that are also peanut-free). The staff and owner are very friendly. They often have small samples available (yummy). The prices may not be as cheap as cupcakes you can find at a Safeway but you pay for what you get and these cupcakes are -FAR- tastier than the ones at Superstore, Safeway, etc. So in that sense, the cupcakes are a great value!
I'm a bit of a cake and cupcake fan, though I try not to indulge very often. I came across this neat little place tucked away in downtown PoCo. It has a really funky kind of atmosphere - they even turned an old fashioned refrigerator into a display cabinet. When I went in I was blown away by the artistry in the cakes and their cupcakes as well - from elegant and sophisticated to funny and playful!! They have an Alice in Wonderland themed cake on display, and it could stand against any of the cakes I've seen on those TV shows (ie: Cake Boss, etc). I ordered a selection of mini cupcakes, and a few full size cupcakes - half expecting them to be all show and no go - I was dead wrong, the icing was perfect, not too sweet & not too much - and the cake itself was moist, delicious and so flavourful. The people were extremely friendly and helpful, and while it isn't cheap, I think it compares in price to the other cupcake places, and far surpasses them in flavour and texture. We sampled a selection of their other goodies - mmmm mmmmm!! I would give this place a try!!
