They wanted natural colours and toppings, so we did raspberry icing and blackberry icings coloured with raspberries and blackberries and then just a vanilla butter icing, topped with daisies cherries and pastel sprinkles, we also did some vegan, for their vegan guests, not shown here, these were topped with butterflies. Tun and Zibby celebrated their wedding in the botanical garden with food made by all their friends! We hope you had a fantastic day. Congratulations Tun & Zibby x

Farewell cupcakes for Dylis

Last Saturday we did some cupcakes for Dylis' leaving party as she is retiring as the Headteacher of Beckford School at the end of term, as Beckford is our local school, and we often make cakes for the school, they ordered some cupcakes from us. I also attended the party, which was held on the 4th of July, and was entiled 'Dylis' independence day' as she is also American. The theme for the party was the Queen Mary, as she came to the UK as a child from New York on the Queen Mary boat with her family. It was a lovely party and extremely sentimental and nostalgic for me as I also went to Beckford School, and I even saw some of my teachers there from when I was 7 years old!! Very strange. Cupcakes went down well and the party ended with a great firework display. Farewell Dylis, good luck xx

The perfect brew..

We are now offerering a delicious new range of loose teas. We have teamed up with local supplier W Martyn to stock their delicious tea blends to serve with your cakes in the shop, and you can also take a box home with you. We have a few varieties including classic black teas like English breakfas and Assam, as well as herbal teas, fruit teas a special blends like summer tea (my favourite!!) The team at bake-a-boo had a tea tasting last week after our lunch (see the image of our mess below!), where we tasted all the different teas, and we all chose our favourites, but all agreed that this tea is just's real tea and it's yummy, but also W Martyn, is such a great supplier, they are local and have been around since 1897! It's a real family run business, with a gorgeous old fashioned shop, which I'm sure hasn't changed much since 1897! It's definately worth a visit to W Martyn in Muswell Hill, just for the experience, and for the delicious smells too! But if you can't make it there, come and visit bake-a-boo and we will make you the perfect brew! x
