Gift boxes - changes to pricing

Just a quick one today to let you all know we have now decided to make ordering our cupcake gift boxes even easier.

From Monday, 26 April ALL gift boxes will now be one price - £20 inclusive of delivery to any NG postcode!

You can view all of our gift boxes here. All of our gift boxes are made to order but we're happy to recreate a previous style if you see something you like in our gallery. And as an incentive to those clients who'd prefer to collect from our premises in Hucknall then you get your order bumped up to 12 cupcakes for the price of 9! That's right, 12 of our delicious cupcakes for the price of 9 - what more could you ask for? Drop me an email today liana@starbakery.co.uk to place your order.


Yuuummmmmm dolly mixtures.....

The sweetie cupcake is fast becoming one of our most popular cupcakes this season! That and Red Velvet cupcakes are our two most ordered flavours. And it's easy to see why with it's mound of sugary goodness topped with sweets that remind me of my youth :)

These cupcakes were part of a larger order for a hen do and these were my favourite: lemon cupcakes, drizzled with homemade lemon syrup and topped with zesty lemon buttercream. Perfect for this lovely weather!

And in case you missed it I put out a question to all our lovely followers about what flavours you'd like to see on our menu. We had some GREAT suggestions including:
  • Key lime flavour: lime sponge filled with lime filling and topped with cream cheese frosting
  • Mocha choc chip
  • Cardamon and honey
  • Eton Mess
  • Vanilla fudge
  • Retro sweetie cupcakes: incorporating 80's style popping candy!
You'll have to keep an eye out for our newsletter which will announce the May special sometime soon but in the meantime if there's a flavour YOU'D like to see then leave us a comment and we can add it into the mix!

Quick update and cupcakes of course!

The Star Bakery kitchen has been a hectic place this week with Easter bringing out the cake lovers in you but I just wanted to do a quick post to let you know we're still here (and baking!) and I hope to have a chance to do a proper post soon.

So what's on our radar? Well April and May are quite big months for weddings and birthdays so lots of exciting cakes to make and of course we need to unleash our Father's Day specials in time for the 20 June so all in all, lots to come!

But let me leave you with a picture of some of my fave recent cupcakes we did for Donna's 29th birthday. Her party was retro 1950's themed so we happily obliged and made her some fab record and ice cream soda cupcakes for her to display at the big party. Hope you like them!
