I have been going to Sift for the past 3 years and it has been one of my go to places, to both meet,eat and hangout with friends. Having been a lover of all things sweet all my life it was fate that I found this gem. At first Sift was a small patisserie in Horizon plaza in which I regularly visited but since then has taken off branching off to different areas in Hong Kong.
Their cupcakes are both fluffy, moist, sweet (but not sickeningly sweet) and flavourful. I have yet to try a cupcake that I like as much as theirs. With other new contenders such as Twelve cupcakes in Windsor House and Sweet Secrets located on Canal Road it is still my favourite.
They recently opened a new branch in Hysan Place in Causeway Bay. The shop is brightly lit with shelves upon shelves of cupcakes and a fridge full of cakes and macarons. I will drooling by the time I looked at the glass counter full of mini cupcakes! The simplistic yet elegant design reminded me of old book shops where they librarian must climb the ladder to reach the highest books, however in this case I mean reach for the glorious carrot cupcake on the tip top shelf. The shop was full of customers all wanting to grab a bite, at HKD $28 (for the large) they are relatively ok in price however, I still remember the days when they were $25.
At their newest branch they offered new cake pop/cookies that are available for purchase and a mooncake cookie set perfect for Moon festival coming up this September.
Here are the deets to go get your treats! *facepalm*
Location: 2nd Floor Hysan place, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong
