Sealed with a kiss kiss
PHUKET: A designer cupcake shop has opened up in Central Festival Phuket, run by Six Senses Koh Yao Noi executive chef Anthony Reynolds and his wife Kea.

Joob Joob, meaning ‘kiss kiss’ in Thai, offers 21 flavours of cupcakes, all made fresh daily and including apple crumble, carrot and ginger, chocolate peanut butter, and chocolate cookies and cream.
The couple opened the shop in early June, and Anthony, originally from Australia, spends around four days at the shop, and the remainder of his time at the resort.
He says the store gives him the freedom to be creative, and they are constantly coming up with new designs and experimenting – and having a lot of fun in the process.
“Before Phuket when I was in Washington DC, I got addicted to them. The thing I love about cupcakes is that you can train people to do it quite easily. It’s a simple set up, low maintenance and just basic elements of a fridge, oven, and mixture.”
The shop also does cupcakes for special occasions, such as cupcake towers and offers cupcake making and decorating classes.
The cupcakes are B35 for one small, and B80 for a large one. Boxes of four small are B120, and six large are B460.
