Hello from an excited Crumbs Cupcakery HQ!

So... A few weeks have passed since we announced that we were opening a shop in York. Well, we finally got the keys last Monday and have been frantically painting, sawing and drilling away all this week so that we can open as quickly as possible so that we don't miss any of our lovely British Summertime! (saying that is has rained loads here today... Boo).

There have been a few obstacles so far, wonky walls being number 1, as apparently it makes fitting a kitchen and laying a floor rather tricky! It's a good job Jack, my extremely lovely and helpful boyfriend (with scary devil eyes in this picture!), loves a challenge...

Our lovely electrician, Thom Wiseman from Powerwatt Ltd in York has been fantastic, and fitted lots of new pendants for our pretty lamp shades, and is also making our feature light which I am soooo excited about seeing finished! Pictures will most certainly follow...

Day off for me tomorrow as I have to drive to London to the National Cupcake Championships which I can't wait for. It is an honour to be selected for a second year running, and even if we don't win anything, it'll be great to have a finalist certificate to hang in the shop :) It won't however, be a day off for Jack (poor boy!), my Dad and Step-Mum to-be... as they are carrying on with the shop fit. I am so lucky to have such lovely friends and family that are willing to help with only tea and cakes for payment! 

Right, signing off for the night from a lovely (rainy) York.... Xxx

Exciting Times....

Well, I cannot believe that it is almost a year since my last blog post... and the last time I wrote was when I attended the National Cupcake Championships in 2011! MUST make time to blog more in the future! :o Funnily enough, I have just had news that we have been shortlisted for the 2012 Championships... super excited to say the least! Our "Love is in the Air" Cupcake has been selected for the themed Cupcake category. Two years in a row - what an honour!

***** NEWS FLASH!*****

We are extremely proud to announce that we are going to be opening our very own Cupcakery in the beautiful City of York. Our pretty little bakery is situated right behind the York Minster, and we will be serving tea, coffee, milkshakes and of course Cupcakes and other treats!

We will keep you updated with further news and exciting happenings in the coming weeks!
