Tea time

February’s order for the HR girls at Starcom. Two dozen of Betty’s finest cupcakes – Baileys chocolate and the ever popular carrot with cream cheese frosting.

Tea time

Another order for one of Betty’s regular London customers, the HR girls at Starcom. Once a month they take time out from the hectic world of media and treat themselves to afternoon tea, complete with two dozen of Betty’s finest cupcakes. Each month brings a variety of new flavours. Previous favourites include carrot, red velvet, sticky toffee & fizzy cola.

What a lovely treat!

Did you know…

…that Betty has been supplying a great local cafe, TasteBud, for over a year now. They stock both chocolate & carrot cupcakes with deliveries twice a week.

So, if you’re in Bromley and fancy something sweet to go with your coffee/lunch/snack then head on over to Chatterton Road, Bromley and see Fiona and the TasteBud girls.

Good Golly Miss Holly

On a recent family holiday to Florida I couldn’t resist the temptation to visit Sweet!, run by two-time winner of Food Network’s ‘Cupcake Wars‘ Hollis Wilder. It was a quiet November morning and we pretty much had the shop to ourselves. What better way to celebrate the occasion than a dozen of her finest cakes. But choosing from a such an amazing selection was tough.

We eventually decided on : chocolate mousse, lemon, red velvet, dulce de leche, white raspberry, high hat, creamsicle, cinnamon swirl, heath bar, cookies and cream and finally white out.

Oh my golly Miss Holly. These cakes were fabulous! Each one was a mini marvel of taste & flavour. Firm favourites were certainly cinnamon swirl and heath bar (like Dime bars). We even got a free sample of chocolate mint. As ever, my two young sons were on hand to help out with the tasting. Henry tried out the frozen yogurt whilst George sampled the lemon cupcake.

Before too long the box was reduced to this…

In between cakes we got to meet Miss Holly’s husband, who was impressed by the ‘crazy Brits’ cupcake pilgrimage to his wife’s shop. Apparently Miss Holly has just signed a book deal, with a release date of Spring 2013.

A real treat, and a source of inspiration for some new flavours from Betty.

Cake cake cake!

Welcome to my blog…which aims to give you an insight into Betty’s world of baking.

We’re only small but we aim to provide a decadent selection of beautifully decorated cakes & cupcakes, made with love using only the finest ingredients. In two words – deliciously scrumptious!

But we very nearly had a different name for this little cupcake empire. It all started with my brother-in-law. You see, he decided to teach my non-speaking 21 month old to say “Cake cake cake” which caused no end of hilarity (and embarrassment) at toddler group. Michael Dore and Marjorie Dawes have a lot to answer for.

Last year was a busy year for Betty’s kitchen. We produced several thousand cupcakes, a large selection of celebration cakes including a handful of orders for some very famous celebrities. And this year looks set to be just as busy with plenty of exiting new cakes & flavours planned.

P.S. Huge thanks go to my friend Hayleigh for helping me name my blog.
