Valentine's Day Cupcakes Giveaway!

Tuesday, 8 February 2011

Love is in the air!

Valentine's day came early for me this year. After receiving a gorgeous box of chocolates from Hotel Chocolat, this beautiful box of cupcakes from Queen of Cupcakes arrived at my doorstep today.

Valentine's day is just a week away, if you are still thinking of what to get for your loved one, here's another great idea - a box of rich chocolate sponge with delicious chocolate buttercream icing decorated with red fondant icing roses or hearts.

For Valentine’s Day, Queen of Cupcakes have a beautiful collection of ideas to give to your loved one or to that person you have been admiring from afar. You can either treat them to a luxurious Valentine’s Day gift box with cakes decorated in red and gold, or perhaps a singly wrapped cake would be the perfect gesture in gorgeous wrapping and a bow.

If you are not familliar with the Queen of Cupcakes, it is run by Antonia from her home in Bury St Edmunds where she makes all the cakes herself. She started out making cakes for her four children who have now all gone off to school and decided to turn a hobby into a business. It has always bothered Antonia that so many cakes look very pretty but taste of very little. A cupcake is about taste first and foremost, and the pretty bit is just the icing on the cake!

All the cakes are made with the best quality and locally bought free range eggs from Toby Rush of Rymer farm who delivers once a week on his way to the school run. (Queen of Cupcakes strives to be as green as possible!) They are often still warm from the chickens when they arrive in the kitchen! Only the best ingredients are used and unlike so many other cupcakes real butter is always used. There are no artificial additives or preservatives and only natural food colourings are used. All of the cakes last for five days in an air tight container (beware of any cake that state it lasts longer) and they all freeze beautifully to be stored for any future event.

More flavours are available if you want something different. I don't know about you, but I'm dying to try their famous carrot cake which is claimed to be the best carrot cake in the world. Wonderfully moist and rich and packed with fruit and nuts and carrots. Cream cheese frosting sprinkled with walnuts and cinnamon. Sounds awesome doesn't it?
