Little Miss Cake Maker is officially open for business!
My lovely home page will be transforming very soon into my new and exciting e-commerce website. The blog will still be up and running and easy to find, so if you're a follower or fan and aren't interested in buying stuff, don't despair! If anything, I'm hoping I'll now be able to update the blog more than ever, and share a wider range of creative experimental baking with you :)
Shoppity shop can be found at shop.littlemisscakemaker.com so take a look - it's been intentionally created to be as fun as possible to shop through, and there is SO much development still happening behind the scenes. Many more decorative themes to add to the range you see there - but please send me a message if you have any suggestions or would like something in particular that you don't see already! It's very exciting to be able to share my cakes and creative ideas with you all even more! Email firstname.lastname@example.org
So I'm hoping that by now you've come across Cakeopoly, as it's been a few weeks since I threw it out there to the public and ended up winning my first ever baking competition (Star Baker prize for the Faringdon Bake Off). While I've mentioned Cakeopoly in previous posts, I felt it deserved a special post of it's own, so I can show you the process I went through to make these super cute cupcakes! Continue reading
Until this weekend, I'd never entered a baking competition before. I've been baking and sharing my cakes with friends, family and co-workers for a couple of years, but complete strangers judging my cakes was totally new territory - I had no idea how good or average they tasted to someone that didn't 'have' to like it.

So you may have noticed that it's nearly blimin' Christmas! With that in mind, I made some mince pies. When I've perfected that recipe, I will be more than happy to share it with you, but it needs a bit of fine tuning. However, as I am Little Miss Cake Maker and I do love cake, I felt the need to make Mince Pie Cupcakes a thing. And they totally are. They're amazing! Continue reading
What better way to celebrate Doctor Who's 50th anniversary than with some wibbly wobbly timey wimey nomworthy cakes?!
After recently spending time in the sunny state of California, I returned home to the South West of England with bags full of american candy. Thanks to demanding work-mates and the upcoming Halloween, I discovered the wonder of candy corn. They're addictive and yummy in a crazy, sugary, artificial kind of way, and I just had to make a cake version of it.
You may have seen cookie monster cupcakes around generally, and I love them (amazing version can be seen at Bird on a Cake). However, I wanted to make my own but take the concept further. I wanted to make cupcakes that TASTE like cookies...
Our British summertime is proving to be perhaps even rainier and sun-less than usual, but what's summer without a BBQ?! No matter what the weather, these burger cakes are the answer.
I love coming across pictures of really creative cake ideas, and challenging myself to recreate them; figuring out how to bring them to life just from seeing a photo of the finished result. Party Ideas UK is an amazing source of inspiration for me, and as we're heading towards Eastertime, sheep cupcakes seemed a perfect design to try!
I'd like to say that these were in aid of charity or something, but they weren't.
A good friend of mine is a very talented cook, she's great at 'proper food' and pastry and all kinds of things I wouldn't know how to prepare, never mind cook. Anyway, she wanted me to show her how to make some cupcakes, and I needed a super distraction the evening before my driving test, so we had a BAKE NIGHT...
