The last few things to be delivered this December were our Gingerbread Houses - with the option of buying it as a kit or ready assembled these adorable buildings smelt absolutely amazing as they were baking.

Christmas Cupcakes

At this time of year cupcakes are a great corporate gift for your clients.

Simple and elegant we can ensure there's enough to go round. This particular client wanted to have a Christmas theme so we added a few baubles and stars to their logo and had them printed on edible icing to make gorgeous little toppers.

We had some great feedback from these cakes which is always fab to receive and makes our job worthwhile.

Winter Wedding

This was for a wedding at The Italian Villa which is at Compton Acres in Poole. The bride and groom wanted something simple and stylish to incorporate their wedding theme of royal blue & pearl.

The three tier cake was made up of a light fruit cake, a zesty lemon cake and a rich, dark chocolate fudge cake.

We made the bride & groom topper out of modelling clay so the happy couple could keep a reminder of their special day.

Christening Cake

This simple bear-adorned cake was for a Christening celebration - I loved the bear so much I had to make a second one to keep for myself!

80's Retro Cake

We had a full on 80's playlist in the background whilst making this three tier 80's cake - creativity at it's best.

Encompassing various iconic logos and memories from this decade with a few retro sweets thrown in for good measure.

The highlight of the cake for me was the top tier - underneath the Rubik's cube exterior the cake was cubed in the various colours of the original Rubik's cube. Now that's attention to detail, right?!

Cocktail Cupcakes

This summer cocktail cupcakes have really grown in popularity - these were definitely our favourites of the season... Spiced Rum & Cola cupcakes with a hint of lime.

Most cocktails can work as a cupcake - give us a shout if there's a favourite tipple you fancy seeing in a cupcake.

Money Cake

We loved the theme of this cake for an 18th Birthday - money!

Piles of 'cash' were made out of cake then topped with edible £20 notes. Clean, simple and to the point!

Rambling on

This cake was for a local walker's group who were celebrating their 40th anniversary of their Wednesday Walks.

The wall was made of fondant "stones" and they were a real hit -  everybody wanted a little piece of wall with their slice.

Keep Your Chin Up

If you love coffee you need to get some Jimmy's in your life - not just because it tastes amazing but Jimmy & Suzie are two of the loveliest people you're ever likely to meet.

We made this super cute cake replica of one of their products - it's even coffee flavoured, although we can make it in what ever flavour takes your fancy.

You can also find Jimmy's on facebook and twitter - go and give them some love!

Vito Sport & Blake Samson

We're often so focused on getting a cake completed and delivered and we end up forgetting to take photos. It's great when we get sent photos of you with your cakes.

This month's delight was for the very talented Blake Samson - if you're local to Poole you might have seen him performing with the Animal Relentless Bike Tour.

If you're into mountain biking or even if you aren't you should check out the videos in association with the Mercedes Vito Sport - Blake is one of their ambassadors.

Adidas Product Launch

The running shoe theme carried on into May - Adidas had caught a glimpse of our cake at Poole parkrun and decided to roder some for their new product launch conference in Brighton.

Adidas Fast X

Opting for two of the designs out of their new range the above photo is of their Fast X shoe - it confused quite a few people when we delivered it, they were convinced it was an actual shoe!

Running.... and cake!

This weekend held the 1st anniversary celebrations of Poole parkrun. For those who aren't familiar with the concept - it's great - you turn up at 9 a.m. on a Saturday morning and run 5k - it's free and you get an official time when you register for a barcode.

I generally tend to use parkrun as a justification for eating cake and this Saturday was a complete cakefest. Many of the runners had baked goodies for the event and it was a brilliant turnout.

It was a well attended event with top athletes running such as Liz Yelling, Martin Yelling and Steve Way.

The highlight for us was our Adidas adiSTAR Salvation 3 running shoe cake - it created a lot of attention and fantastic feedback. We even appeared in the Bournemouth Daily Echo.

Cupcake Camp Bournemouth

As well as donating cupcakes we spent the day volunteering at Cupcake Camp again this year as part of Team Cupcake.

It was a full on day with setting up the tables, coordinating cake donations as well as competition entries and making sure we were ready for the doors opening to the public at 2 p.m.

Once again it was a success with Cupcake Camp raising £3178 for NSPCC Childline.

We were thrilled to have won a category again this year, taking home an award for the Best Olympic Cupcake with our Olympic Torch cupcakes baked into airbrushed gold ice cream cones.

Love is in the air

So it seems Valentine's Day is upon us once again. What are your plans this year? Quiet evening in? Dinner at a restaurant perhaps?

Boys... I guess your first port of call would be flowers, maybe even roses. Why conform to tradition, send cakes instead. Cheaper than flowers - yes that's right, they're cheaper than those nasty cheap excuses for roses that the supermarkets seem to love to wheel out at this time of year.

As for the girls.... well in theory, you give boys cake and with a  bit of luck you get to eat it too - it's a win win situation!

We've got a range of cakes and bakes for you, from the usual suspect cupcake or our sweet petites to 10" heart shaped cakes or even a box of heart shaped cookies.

Visit our website or drop us an email for more information, we'll even hand deliver your gift to your loved one on the 14th.
