Weddings, 21st Birthdays & Bank Holiday Weekends

I hope everyone had a nice and relaxed bank holiday weekend :)  After a busy Wednesday, Thursday and Friday it was nice to have a couple of days to myself, minus the flour, butter, sugar and eggs!  I went out for a very nice meal at Charlie Choys with two of my favourite people, and then spent Sunday in Winchester with some awesome company.  

This is just a quick post, mainly to show you all the cupcake tower I made for the lovely Laura and Pete for their wedding on Saturday 28th August :)

And also to post a few photos of the 21st Birthday Tower...

I have got another wedding cakes to make for this Saturday, which includes a giant cupcakes as the top cake - I will post photos soon!!!

Happy Baking!

Long time no blog!

I cannot believe that it has been MONTHS since I last blogged!  Time seems to go so quickly these days, weeks are like 24 hours to me!  Business has picked up a lot, so I guess I haven't really had that much time to keep up to date with certain things - well that's my excuse...I am, however, going to try and blog as much as possible from now on, as there may be something rather exciting happening in the not so distant future!

Somehow I have managed to delete some of my old posts (not that it matters as they weren't that great)  but since I last posted I have been kept busy with many wedding orders, 21st birthdays and other occasions!

Merristwood Golf Club were extremely impressed with the cake I made for my lovely bride Lisa, so impressed that they got in touch and asked if I would be interested in having a stall at their Bridal Fayre next month - unfortunately I had to decline the offer as I've got orders to fulfill, but I'm definitely attending their next one!

I have also been contacted by Wedding TV to see if I would be interested in being on their second series of The Great Cake Bake, presented by Sian Lloyd.  I honestly can't believe it!  Infact, I am wondering if maybe it's someone winding me up!?  Either way I've agreed to take part (if it is genuine) and am being contacted over the next few days to arrange a time to film my "bio" and chat to the producers...I do not have a clue how or where I am going to get the confidence from to do this!  Anyone who knows me, knows that I am quite a shy and quiet girl - but hey, it's an amazing opportunity and I would be an absolute fool to say no!

Anyhoo, here are some photos of the cupcakes I've been making over these past few months.

I think I'll leave it here for this evening, but I will make sure that I keep you all up to date with the tv show gossip, and all other things cupcake-related - that's a promise!

Happy baking!

My very first blog!!

Aghhh!  I have never done any sort of "blogging" before and would really like to appologise in advance for whatever I'm about to jot down :)

This post is probably going to be one of the more boring posts out of those yet to come, mainly because I have spent most of my day today skating down the icey paths of Goldsworth Park to visit my mum at the doctors (she works there) to fax something for me, instead of baking cakes to add to my portfolio. 

A photo I took of Goldsworth Park Lake the other morning

 I am definately going to get some cupcakes baked tomorrow though, so please check back to see what I've baked!

Ooooh! I am also making some Indiana Jones themed cupcakes on Thursday for my friend Louise as it's her brothers birthday.  I'm baking some of my very vanilla cupcakes, topping them with my *secret recipe* vanilla cream frosting and I've made up some edible image Indiana Jones toppers to pop on top :)  These should look pretty awesome!  I shall upload photos Thursday afternoon for you all to see.

I think I shall leave it there...for now!  Just want to write a quick thank you to all of you who have joined the My Cupcake Box group on Facebook and also for taking the time to read my somewhat appalling blog - I will hopefully get better at it soon :)  Also!  If you would like to order any cupcakes please contact me at, or through facebook or through my website - every order would be really appreciated :)

Thank youuuuu!
Abby :)x
