Sugar Rush is another new Colombo home baker, and they make some really awesome fudgey brownies. We tried a bunch of their Valentines special brownies (heart-shaped ones), their brownie-cupcakes, and their lemon cake.
The brownie-cups, with butter cream frosting, were basically very heavy brownies squished into cupcake form. These came cold and cupcakes are usually more enjoyable warm and soft – regardless, they were brownies, so not much harm done. The fudgyness was strong in this one, and the frosting was quite creamy too. So overall, the brownie-cups are a super sugary and heavy snack, and just one or two feels like a whole lot.
I loved the little heart shaped brownies. These were much easier to digest – they were softer, crumbly, with a middle cream layer, and they make adorable finger food at a party. These are good brownies, though Rs. 120 each, which is a lot considering the size.
Sugar Rush right now seems to have its main focus on brownies and cupcakes, but we were glad to find they’ve also started doing a lemon cake. It’s amaze, and deserves a 4/5 rating all on its own. There aren’t a lot of people who make good lemon cake – lemon is an underrated flavour for some reason. This cake, for only Rs. 1000, is easily enough for about a dozen people: it’s layers of cake, with lemon cream between, and a whole bucketload of it slathered on the top. The cake was wonderfully soft and the flavour, especially the after-taste, is awesome – but it’s strong so this is probably only if you’re into this flavour.
The Sugar Rush minimum order is 6 pieces, and they were around Rs. 120 each. So you’ll probably spend about Rs. 1500 for a set of twelve – the usual rate for home baked food these days.
