A few weeks ago I was contacted by the Happy Egg Company (those free range eggs in the cute little yellow boxes) about a competition they were running with the Jamie Oliver Magazine. We always use free range eggs at Baked and I love a chance to get creative so it sounded promising. The competition is called ‘Bake The Nation‘ and they want people to make them a baked masterpiece that sums up the UK. The bakery is very busy at the moment (at some point I’m sure I’m going to end up trying to put a cake in the computer and my phone in the mixer) but I was definitely up for the challenge!
I got my thinking cap on and then waited for a break in the baking to give it a go. I decided to take the ‘Bake the Nation’ title as inspiration and chose to literally bake the nation. As Baked Cupcakery specialises in cupcakes (you probably guessed that from the name), it had to be a cupcake creation. As much as I love London and all the things that go on there, I wanted to celebrate the whole of the nation. I looked at the 12 regions of the UK (12 is a good baking number so I thought that was a good sign) and came up with a design to represent each one. What resulted is below…
Here are the photos of all the regions… from the top!
Yorkshire & the Humber
East of England
And of course, not forgetting our Capital!
I hope you enjoyed your tour of the UK through cupcakes. If you would like to enter the Happy Egg competition the closing date is the 1st of June… so plenty of time to get baking! Check out the other entries at the Happy Egg Co Facebook page, or to keep up to date with all of our baking creations, take a look at the Baked Cupcakery Facebook page (and give it a like if you wish :o)
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!
Cupcake towers look stunning at weddings and can be tailored to any taste, theme or whim! For a New Years Eve Baked created a 40s inspired Cupcake tower with matching 6″ cutting cake. The cupcakes were done in black and ivory with alternating wedding dress and suit decorations.
The cupcakes created a beautiful tower, the 6″ cutting cake was covered in embossed icing with a sugar flower.

We are very excited to announce the launch of our printed cakes and cupcakes! Test runs have been done and there are orders in the pipeline! I can’t get over the novelty of printing edible images, and they look amazing on the cakes. I’m hoping my Graphic Design background will lead to some interesting creations!
Printed cupcakes are a brilliant opportunity for many businesses to get their brand noticed and remembered! Whether it’s for a memorable marketing campaign, an event or awards evening, product launch, or a thank you to a valued customer – printed cupcakes will go down a storm! They can even be individually bagged with your business card attached. Please get in touch to see what we can do for you.
We have designed some lovely cupcakes with photos of happy couples and messages on. We can work with you to design a cupcake that fits in exactly with your wedding. What better way to say thank you to your guests than with their own delicious cupcake. I would certainly be over the moon!
