If local stars were cupcake flavours

Happy Cupcake Lovers’ Day! Yeah, we didn’t know the food holiday existed either until earlier this month. But that doesn’t stop us from celebrating the holiday (as though we needed a reason to indulge in the treat). And just for fun, we also came up with a list of flavours based on the celebs’ personalities, cos like cupcakes, these stars are sweet and an appealing part of our lives.

Jeanette Aw: Vanilla

While some might accuse vanilla of being too safe, its most ardent fans will insist that it is timeless, simple, and goes with just about anything. Like Jeanette, it’s everywhere, but you never seem to tire of it.

At first glance, it looks like any other cupcake, but when you get to the core of it, you will discover it oozes character and can’t help but be besotted by its sweet and explosive flavour. Sounds like our nice Singaporean boy.

Like chocolate, the most desired flavour on the menu, the golden girl of local showbiz is warm, accessible and universally beloved. Girls want to be her and guys want to be with her.

She may be based in Paris, but Sharon is just like our favourite Italian dessert – elegant and refined. She’s born to see the world and try new things, and has no qualms about stepping out of her comfort zone to follow her heart.

Nothing says “summer fun” like a coconut cupcake, which we can’t help associating with Yasminne, who can forever be found at the pool, at a party, or holidaying at the beach.
