About Me

My photo
Hi all! My name is Becca and I am a 21 year old from Berkshire, England with an interest in all things cake. I have only been baking for the past couple of years and if someone had told me 5 years ago that I would be a passionate cake maker at the age of 21, I'm afraid to say I probably would have laughed in their face! I have had many cake disasters in the past (including a Barbie cake for my friend's 16th Birthday that was still raw in the middle when she cut into it...) However one Christmas I opened my stocking to find a Giant Cupcake making kit, and hey presto, my love for all things sweet emerged. I have developed this blog as a way of sharing my baking experiences with others. I love to read other baking blogs, you can learn so much from them and discover some great new ideas. Plus I just love looking at photos of yummy scrummy cakey goodness ;) (possibly a touch of 'food pornography' going on there!) Whilst I am still on a massive learning curve with my baking, I will share any tips I have with you as well! Thanks for popping by! Love Becca xxx

Sweetie Cupcakes

Give me anything sweet-related and I will love you forever. I recently wandered into my local Old Fashioned Sweet Shop in Reading and had a 'light-bulb' moment. 


My head was full of images of cakes overflowing with wonderful, sugary goodness. I was so excited to get baking I bought a big bag of giant swirly lollies, jelly snakes, candy necklaces, and jelly buckets and spades. At home, I whipped up a batch of vanilla cupcakes, brightly coloured frosting and piled them high with sweeties. I felt like I was 7 years old again!

Gloriously simple, these are the perfect treat to keep the kids happy (and that includes all the big kids out there!). What I love about these is you can go as mad as you like with the sweets and pick and choose your favourites to scatter on the top. I think I might take a trip to the sweet shop again and buy some Fruit Salads, Pear Drops, Dolly Mixture....(my mouth is watering at the thought of it).

Happy Baking!
Love Becca x
