The design concept for this cupcake bakery in Taipei is much like the design of the classic cupcake itself: a rigid, plain shell in which is held all the sweet ingredients. J.C. Architecture designed the cup of Les Bébés Cupcakery with the simple outline of a child’s drawing, faced with a huge window punctured by an equally simply shaped window box display and an imposing door, both seemingly floating, leading inside. Almost like a modern interpretation of a fairytale cottage, we wouldn’t be surprised to find ourselves somewhere completely different upon stepping through.

On the off chance that a portal to another dimension doesn’t suck you away, the delights of the store await. The square, folding box theme continues inside. Angular features, such as the stools, cubic display elements and counter top are pricked by circular designs on the counter façade, light fittings, and, of course, the stars of the show, the cupcakes themselves, although they aren’t likely to be hanging around too long…
