Cakes make beautiful personal gifts for many other special days too. Chocolate and hearts on Valentine's Day, a cupcake bouquet on Mother's Day, Football cupcakes for Father's Day and cupcakes for 'thank you teacher' days too. They are a delicious alternative to chocolate eggs at Easter, and fruitcakes at Christmas. It's best to mention our fruitcakes are delicious too. A seventy year old gentleman recently declared our Christmas mini fruitcakes "the best he's ever tasted"....we reckon he must have tasted a few in that time and took that as a real compliment!
Cupcakes and cakes have become popular corporate gifts at Christmas, at launch parties and sales events, especially when embellished with edible logos. They are also regularly served at office parties.
And a wonderful new trend is for 'caketails', delicious cocktail themed and flavoured cupcakes. In the summer, Pimm's and Mojito caketails are favourites. In the winter, warming flavours like Amaretto and Baileys take the limelight.
