" Charlotte's Cupcake Corner: July 2009

Wednesday, 29 July 2009


Hello again everyone,

I spent Sunday at the wonderful Blackbrook House thanks to an invitation from Deb & the Fabulous Places website.

What a fabulous day, I sold out of over 170 cupcakes by 3 o'clock in the afternoon! "Dive into deep chocolate" was the best seller, must have been the chocolate aero placed on top, or the mini-marshmallows throughout the chocolate buttercream - actually my mouth is watering just thinking about them!

It was so wonderful to see familiar faces who said they visited the fete especially to stop by the Cupcake Corner stall and buy a little treat, thank you Christine...and also to be visited by people I know from Ashbourne who stopped by to support me, thanks Julie!

Couldn't have done it without the wonderful Jo, who promoted the benefits of free range eggs, Green & Blacks cocoa, fairtrade sugar better than I did!!! Thank You Jo

Most of all, thank you to Deb for organising such a fab event, I had a great time, some lovely food myself and picked up some lovely pressies for my nearest & dearest. If you get a chance, be sure to visit the website, you'll get to know the best of the best around Derbyshire.

Busy preparing for a VIP 40th birthday order and a very special hen party order, so I'd better get on with it

Until the next time, Charlotte aka Mrs Cupcake X

hello again, don't just take Phil Vickery's word for it, here is what recent Cupcake Corner customers think...

Cup a load of these cakes!

Charlotte is Ashbourne's gluten-free answer to Mr Kipling. She bakes exceedingly good cakes! Keep up the good work!

Charlotte's cupcakes are superb - my whole family loved them and they really do taste as good as they look. The presentation and packaging is beautiful, making them a perfect 'alternative' gift instead of the usual bouquet of flowers. Well done Charlotte - a triumph!

Love these cakes!!!

Wow wow wow what fabulous cupcakes! My husband did not know these wonderful cakes were gluten free and said they were the best he had ever tasted! He proved this by eating 3 in a row...... Not only are they extremely delicious but they are decorated to the highest standard and come beautifully packaged which makes them an ideal and novel gift for just about any occasion. We are now such fans that we have asked Charlotte to provide the cakes for my husbands 40th birthday party so we can share these gems with all our guests!

Almost too good to eat.....

I am a huge fan of these fabulous cupcakes made by Charlotte Marsh. Not only are the absolutely gorgeous to look at, they are also delicious and extremely moorish. The fact that they are gluten free is an added bonus, they are by far the best cupcakes around and as a non coeliac sufferer myself they are still my first choice! I'm such a huge fan that I've actually comissioned Charlotte to create a cupcake tower for my forthcoming wedding. I can't recommend these little tastes of heaven enough - they're almost too good to eat (but not quite!).

Dreamy cakes

Ordered a dozen cupcakes for my husband's birthday as an alternative to a conventional cake. The gluten-free element was an irrelevance to us as we can tolerate it, but the cakes were so gorgeous that even the most practised cake-eater couldn't tell anyway. I would certainly order again as they are a novel way to celebrate and occasion.

Perfect for a little girl's birthday, I know so many little girls who are almost obsessed with Peter Pan & Tinkerbell...playgrounds are full of make believe games inspired by the little green fairy, so this is for all those little girls x
