So recently I have been eating my own weight in scones… Afternoon tea is my new big thing. Lovely little treats on pretty stands and plates is all I have been dreaming about. After making an afternoon tea for my friends to enjoy on my birthday, I began to think this would be a great service to offer to other people (because it is a bit of a faff to put together!)… and so Baked Afternoon Tea Service was born!
Baked has two spreads on offer with a minimum of 6 servings per order (that doesn’t mean to say you have to have 6 people eat it!). From finger sandwiches to macaroons and our delicious cupcakes of course, it is sure to go down a treat with friends and family. So whether it’s a girls night in or a family celebration – Afternoon tea is definitely the way to go
The wedding season is starting up now and I just wanted to share the latest wedding I have catered for. The colour scheme was duck egg blue with dusty pink which looked beautiful when I visited the venue. I created a cupcake tower with a giant cupcake topping it off as well as cake pop place settings.
This was the first time I had made cake pop place settings for a wedding and I was really pleased with the results. The cake pops were done in the duck egg blue colour for male guests and the dusty pink colour for the female guests. They had mini pearl decorations and a shimmer. Cake Pops make amazing place settings and favours for your guests – two in one!
There was a request to have a special bride and groom cake pop for the bride and grooms table place setting. I have seen these before and think they are really cute but I hadn’t had a go myself. I loved the finished pops – think I will be having these when I get married!

I haven’t put a post up for quite a while, so I thought I would quickly share this recent cupcake tower. The bakery has been mad busy these past few weeks and there hasn’t been much time for anything else!
I would be forever grateful if you could spare two ticks to nominate my business Baked Cupcakery for ‘Small Business of the Year‘ with Sun FM. After venturing into the corporate market with printed logo cupcakes I have catered for companies such as EDBS (250 for their awards ceremony) and Blue Bird Care (120 cupcakes delivered to valued customers). In December I received an order from Virgin Money for 2000 cupcakes to help their launch in January.
Since then the corporate side has really started to take off with 700 corporate cupcakes delivered to UKAR in Doxford Park and a potential 5000 order in the pipeline for June.
I hope this shows that cupcakes really do mean business!
I think that over the past few months I have shown what you can achieve with determination, hard work and support.
*UPDATE* You can now order online at our sister company Print Cakes!
So the next large corporate order was delivered yesterday to UKAR in Sunderland… 700 branded cupcakes for their employees. Although no where near as many as the 2000 baked for Virgin Money last month it was still a large task! There was a bit more room to breathe in the bakery this time around and the bake went smoothly. With more corporate orders booked in for next month it seems cupcakes are definitely the smart business choice!

So it’s freezing! Everyone is feeling the cold and my thoughts could not be further away from from sipping delicious cocktails by the pool. That was until I received an order for these little rays of sunshine! Cocktail themed cupcakes for a party… believe me when I say these photos will transport you to that sun drenched far away location you dream of in an instant!
As well as our Valentine Cupcake Boxes (see previous post) we have added Valentine Cupcake Bouquets to our offering. The special Valentine version had 7 red rose cupcakes and 6 mini rose cupcakes with rose buds and silver hearts. Sure to melt the heart of your loved one (after all cupcakes are the way to everyone’s heart!)
We are able to deliver to your special someone – but spaces are limited so get in touch!
