So Much More Than 'Just' Cupcakes

As I have been nominated for the Local Gem Award in the St Albans Food Festival this year (please vote here: ) I thought I would take the opportunity to blog a bit about why I think you should vote for me.

I covered briefly about why in my previous post but I thought I'd talk a little about why I am unique and not just another cupcake company. With cupcake companies popping up all over the place now I always try to be different. I started my company up because I have a true passion for baking and decorating. And this isn't just contained to baking cupcakes. However it is with cupcakes that I specialise because they are so versatile and they are anything but boring fairy cakes. They can be anything you like. A couple of weeks a go I trialed a new flavour based on the famous Key Lime Pie and it was extremely well received!

Anyway enough of the cupcakes! Onto the OTHER products I do. Yes, I'm not JUST a cupcake company. (Is that enough capitals for you?) Every market I always have other cakey bakey products on sale. At my previous market I had yummy chocolate brownies and  delicious mini banana bread loaves. I also make customised celebration cakes, a few of which you can see below:

As well as celebration cakes, I also do tea time cakes such as mini cakes, macarons,  layer cakes and guglhupfs.

And of course there are my cake pops and push cups.

So as you can see, I am so much more than just cupcakes! And keep watching as I'm always experimenting with new flavours and products.
