Cupcake Club London Holiday Meetup

Cupcake Club X-Mas Meetup
Last night the second Cupcake Club took place! There were cakes, prizes and good company. The tube strike kept a few people away but we didn’t let that stop us.

The inside. I love cupcakes with stuff in the middle. The Bailey’s frosting on these was so nice. It really went well with the chocolate cake

Anne also kindly made us some of her award winning Sprout Cakes! I really liked these. They had raisins, walnuts and grated sprouts inside. I couldn’t really taste them but Anne insisted she could.

Ellie made the biggest cupcakes I’ve ever seen. I really liked these black bottom cupcakes. They were very rich.

Ellie also made some Salted Caramel cupcakes. I was impressed caramel is very hard to make. I’ve never made it from scratch before.

Here’s some of the happy people. Marcus kindly made brandy snaps but I stupidly didn’t take any photos of them

I love how happy Manny looks. Wonder how bad his sugar crash was later? He ate A LOT of cupcakes!

Marcus was super pleased with his cupcake ice cube tray

Anne already has big plans for her jumbo cupcake! She’s such a trooper. She had a really bad cold but came and stayed the whole time anyway.

Me after I got home already feeling the sugar crash

I was going to plan another Cupcake Club, January 18th, at Tart Bar (a cocktail bar in Clerkenwell). If anyone is interested in future Cupcake Club events let me know if you prefer the casual setting of a pub over a fancy cocktail bar or if we should wait until February.I want to thank everyone that came! I hope you all had a good time. I had a great time and I can’t wait till our next “meeting”!

    Kelly thank you so much for arranging this. I still go "aww how cute" when I see your gingerbread cupcakes – they were adorable and ever so tasty!
    Manny ate far too much sugar – bless him he didn't sleep very well at all on Monday night and worked extra hard at the gym on Tuesday!

    Looks like you all had a great time. The cupcakes look amazing! I'm so gutted I missed this but I really hope I can make it to the Jan one. I was ill for the first cupcake club meetup. 3rd time lucky, right? Do keep me posted :)
