Cupcake Club: London Bloggers Meetup


Yesterday was the first time the Cupcake Club had a get together. It was an intimate get together with the hardcore cupcake lovers showing up. I had a great time and it was nice to just relax and chat with other fellow cupcake lovers and bloggers.


The pub knew we love cupcakes
There are the girls deep in discussion about cupcakes
Everyone made fabulous cupcakes. I left that evening feeling very full and Lisa from Yummy Boutique brought cupcakes as well! I did my best to take photos of all the cakes.

Andrea made a chocolate peanut butter cupcake. There was even a Resses peanut butter cup on the bottom! Andrea’s cake are always so beautifully decorated. I’m jealous of her skills.

Tamara made a Lemon and Lime Cupcake. The flavor was amazing! Her day job is developing flavors for a local dessert company. I can see why they hired her!

Gemma made these Snickers and Rocky Road Cupcakes. This picture doesn’t do them justice. It only has half the rocky road on top. I loved these because they were filled with caramel and peanuts!

That’s my kind of filling

Here are my Coconut Hi Hats

I found these cute paper plates at Robert Dyas. Gemma brought matching napkins!

Now for the best part

This is Lisa. She is the founder of Yummy Boutique. She came and spent the whole evening chatting to us, answering our questions and telling us what it’s like to own your own cupcake business.
I found everything Lisa had to say fascinating. She does everything herself.  She started the Yummy Boutique with the help of the Prince’s Trust. If you didn’t know by now she’s at Partridges Market every Saturday selling her Whoopie Pies. Look at her website she has countless flavors (they rotate each week).
These are the Fluffernutter cupcakes Lisa brought to share. She only sells cupcakes by special order (I would definitely recommend them).
To get ready for the market she starts baking on Thursday and then bakes through the night on Friday without sleeping. Everything is fresh and she never freezes her cakes. I would definitely encourage everyone to visit her stall. Get there early she sells out every Saturday!

Thanks to everyone who came and especially to Lisa for coming and staying to chat. I had a fabulous time! I really can’t say enough great things about Lisa and Yummy Boutique. Her cupcakes were amazing, she was so nice and you can tell she is incredibly hard working.
If anyone is interested in another get together let me know of any ideas you have. I really enjoyed the smaller get together and maybe we could do something different next time! I was thinking of when the summer holiday period is over.
Thanks again to everyone that came!

    Thanks for organising it Kelly, it was a great night! Mara and I really enjoyed ourselves and our little cupcake feast we were able to take away as well! My husband was very appreciative of all the peanut butter cupcakes! I would definitely be up for another one…don't know if you'd want to try and squeeze one in at the beginning of August (before i leave the country!!) but if you're too busy with wedding prep I understand!!

    Kelly – this looks fabulous and I'm sorry I missed it. I wanted to meet Lisa again as well as she is really lovely and I've not had a chance to thank her for my gorgeous cupcakes.
    All the cakes look great – love your hi-hats!

    Hi Kelly – I posted a comment on here the other day, but I guess it didn't go through. Anyways, just wanted to say thanks so much for organizing such a nice evening. I loved your coconut cupcakes, and everyone in my office was amazied by the high hats. Thanks as well to Lisa for coming to talk to us! Hopefully we'll have another meet up sometime in the next few months ifc Iron Cupcake isn't back on.
