Goldie's Hen party tea at bake-a-boo

This weekend we celebrated Goldie's hen party at bake-a-boo. The girls had afternoon tea with a few extras, and goldies friends brought lots of things to add to the fun. Perhaps the funniest 'extra' was the fact that after we closed Goldie and co stayed a little bit longer....waiting for the arrival of a very special guest!! A man dressed as a police man arrived, but he was no ordinary policeman!! He was a STRIPPER!! I can't believe we had a stripper at bake-a-boo! It was very amusing, and the squealing of the girls and chanting 'off off off off' was even more hilarious! It was very 'un' bake-a-boo, but gave us something to giggle about, although I was probably more concerned about my chandeliers than looking at him, when he started swinging his shirt around the place! Typical me, but we had a laugh and Goldie and her girls were all so lovely. Congratulations Goldie xxx

The special guest....

bake-a-boo described as a 'Hidden gem' on BBC London radio....

Today we were involved with a great project called 'Love Camden' - the campaign and it's directory of camdens great places to see, eat and do was launched today at an event at the Wellcome Collection, which we attended. We also supplied the going home treat - a bagged red cupcake with the yellow heart from the logo, one for everyone who attended the event.
We were very proud to be a part of this campaign and to be included in the directory, which taught me a lot about the great places there are, and I have grown up in the borough of Camden most of my life!
But we are even more proud that the Leader of Camden Council Keith Moffet was interviewed on BBC London Radio breakfast show this morning and he mentioned bake-a-boo as a great 'Hidden Gem' in Camden.
Check it out here
We are right behind this campaign aimed at putting Camden on the map and helping small and local businesses like us thrive in our comminities.
Thank you Keith, BBC London and Love Camden! xxx

Vegan wedding cupcakes

Here's some cakes we did for Jonathan and Catherine's wedding. Both Jonathan and Catherine are vegans, and so are many of their friends, so we made all there cupcakes vegan, they had two flavours, chocolate and coffee and two different designs (which keeps it lovely and simple for us!!) They had lots of orange flowers like gerbera's and daisies in their decorations and floral arrnagements, so they wanted to incorporate the orange and the flowers into the cakes, hence why we used daises in white and orange. Then they had a vegan fruit cake for the top cake, which we topped with the same flowers and an ornage ribbon. I saw Jonathan and Catherine the day the set off on Honeymoon and they were so happy with the cakes and said that their guests couldn't believe that they were all vegan. Congratulations Jonathan & Catherine xx

The sweetest story.......

This is the cutest story.. Last week we had our first proposal at bake-a-boo. Nick brought Vicki to bake-a-boo for afternoon tea, but not before Nick and I did lots of planning. He wanted to propose at bake-a-boo, as Vicki loves tea rooms and cake shops, and after some research, Nick decided bake-a-boo was the perfect place. Through a series of emails and phonecalls, we planned the tea and to create some cupcakes with 'marry me?' wriiten on them, that we would present to Vicki for the big moment. As they ate through their afternoon tea and Nick got increasingly nervous, we eventually told Vicki we had a suprise for her and presented her with the covered 'marry me?' cupcakes. Nick lifted the cover and then went round to Vicki's chair and got down on one knee to pop the question.....of course Vicki said yes, as the whole shop then starting clapping and cheering, one lady was even in tears! It was a very special moment, that I was very excited to be a part of, they were such a lovely couple. Congratulations Nick and Vicki xx
