National Cupcake Week

National Cupcake week


This week it is National Cupcake week and this gives you the perfect reason to get baking some cupcakes and have some fun.

Last year Hours of Fun were so busy during this week we didn’t get to bake any, however this year I already have an order in for some Frozen themed cupcakes.  I will be baking a few extra to celebrate the week.

The National Cupcake week website is full to the brim of ideas, pictures, competitions and lots of news from last years week.


My love for cupcakes has definitely grown over the last year, however I still prefer to decorate one large cake with a design, rather than repeat it, in miniature, on lots of little cupcakes – it’s a lot of hard work!  This year I have fallen in love with cupcake decorating classes.  We have run birthday parties, hen dos and completed summer workshops at the local youth centres getting children and adults to decorate their own cupcakes using sugar paste and fondant.  We have had so much fun and had some amazing creations produced.


Have a go yourself at baking some cupcakes and then see how much you can have decorating them.  Click on the link below for a recipe for 10 cupcakes.
