August update

Sorry its been a long time between drinks..oops...I mean Blog updates. We have been very busy girls with lots of orders and exciting things in the pipeline.

We've just participated in our very first SPCA Cupcake day, which was really fun. It was great to be a part of such a large event that bought cupcake and animal lovers together. We had a great response to our cute animal themed cupcakes.The Paws & Bones were a bit hit, and sold out first...we think that there are quite a few chocolate lovers out there who were enticed by the cute chunk of choc on top.The Kittens were verycute, and we are happy to share our secret that everyone was asking 'What are the kittens ears made from?' - They are pieces of Milo cereal - who said cupcakes werent for breakfast??!! and who could resist those Puppy Dog eyes!

We're excited to be exhibiting at
the upcoming Grand Wedding Show at the Aotea Centre in
Auckland, Sunday 13th September - which is only a couple of weeks away!
For details & tickets, go to:
We're really looking forward to meeting couples who will be able to see how eye catching our cupcake towers can
look in the flesh and enjoy some tastings. We may even be doing a little celeb spotting,
as we understand there are some real 'dancing stars' there to help out with wedding dances.

We've had some fun orders and enjoyed making some Christmas themed cupcakes for a mid winter christmas morning tea. Good practice to actual christmas, which will be here before we know it!

And here were have some casino themed cupcakes - we love the bold colours and how effective the simple dice look.

We are so chuffed with the way that this Giant Cupcake turned out - and so was the lucky birthday
The handpiped chocolate butterflies were such a brilliant feature and looked great against the pink strawberry frosting - very girly girl :)

We cant wait for even more designs for the giant cupcake to fit with peoples favourite themes - we have a lot of fun making them, and they make such a great centrepiece.

Promise to blog again soon

Giant Cupcakes

Our latest cupcake obsession is the Giant Cupcakes, we now have them for sale on our site. We love making them and have so much fun creating new flavours and designs. Below is our Pirate themed Vanilla cake.


Cupcake celebrations will commence on Monday 31st August 2009 – the official national Cupcake Day for the SPCA.

To support the SPCA we have a special range of animal themed cupcakes for you to choose from.

We are proud to be donating all proceeds from the sale of these cupcakes to the SPCA, and are so excited to be supporting our furry friends as this is a cause that is close to our hearts.

The Auckland Food Show 2009

We were most excited to exhibit for the first time at The Food Show in Auckland last week and were honored to provide the Food Show with their 10 year Birthday Cake.
And were so excited when we saw our cupcakes appear at the end of One News -

As we were a late entry, we had just a week to prepare and had to 'pull in the big guns' so to speak, with enlisting help from friends and family, and its just as well we did, as we are proud to say that our stand was a big hit at the show.
Our web designer was even helping out, and got rather mobbed when holding the tasting tray.
We added as much colour as we could to our stand to break up the black surround with our bold giant logo (pronounced 'log-go' a la Rhys Darby!) and stunning enlarged product shots.

Our little 'counter' looked adorable filled with some of our range
We thought it would be a nice touch to get our logo put on some fondant for one of our displays. It turned out really well.
We had a Display 'Pod' in another area of the hall which contained a cupcake Pedistool with special Food Show Cupcakes, one of our new Giant Cupcakes and gorgeous handmade cupcake flowers made with cupcake cases inspired by Donna Hay.
So much interest was generated and were chatting to people so much that we are starting to lose our voices!

Our toes are still a tad numb from standing all day and then baking and decorating all night but we are still buzzing from the excitement that our cupcakes generated and the overwhelming support of cupcake lovers. We were flattered that so many people wanted to take photos of our cupcakes, so we snapped some of the people taking photos ourselves!
Check out all our cupcakes housed and ready for dispatch in this shot
We cant wait to exhibit again next Food Show and meet more like minded foodies :)
