Cupcake Gift Boxes

I have wanted to offer gift boxes of special cupcakes for ages and haven't been able to get the right boxes - well, now I have got them! AND I LOVE THEM!

I can't believe how popular they have become already which is lovely!

This picture shows a ladie's box of pink vanilla birthday cupcakes but any combination and any decoration is possible! I can't wait to get on with all the ones I have in mind!

Valentine's Trade Fair

What a busy week that was! Instead of doing one trade fair, Aardvark Cakes tried 2 in a week! Thanks to Shop Direct in Speke where we have been going since October 2008, Aardvark Cakes had the opportunity to visit the Aintree location of the Littlewoods Group. Another bunch of really friendly people who make our job so enjoyable!

Just a small selection of the cupcakes that we had on offer are here: Chocolate Fudge, Valentine Vanilla and Cupid's Carrot!

A Cake for the great Outdoors - Not to be confused with a Great Cake for Outdoors!

Quite a brief accompanied this cake order...An 18 year old that loves trecking and all things outdoors. He was getting a North Face Black Jacket for his birthday which had to be featured aswell as his IPod (A must for all 18th cakes it seems!) Gareth's Mum requested a few of his past interests and present hobbies be included on the cake...the lettering is in the style of Warhammer covering gareth's love of military history, Lego Pieces, Life Saving float and rubber ring and books. Gareth is also a lover of Wheetos and carries them on every exhibition often eating them out of the box -That took ages to paint!! His face is not supposed to look dirty - its stubble!

I have to admit this is not of one my favourite designs but I do love that it is so individual to its recipient.
