"Make and Take" cupcake party

Today was a trial for a new idea, the Make and Take cupcake party - 6 children, 6 cupcakes each, and as much decorating as their little hearts desire. All finished off in a pretty little box and taken home at the end of the party. 

It was definitely a success and entertaining!

The children had lots of fun mixing up the icing sugar, rolling the fondant and sprinkling coloured sugar and other decorations all over their very own cupcakes. 

And the best bit? They each get to take 6 cupcakes home in their very own box, to share with their own family and friends. 

This trial was such a success that we shall be offering cupcake parties, starting in June, in the East Sussex area. If you would like more information, and to book, please email contact@thecinqueportspatisserie.co.uk

A little something for the children

Children and food colouring is not something I usually enjoy. I have three children myself, the eldest of which is very sensitive to colours in foods. As such, the only food colourings we use in our products are those which are 100% natural. As you can see, they don't lose any of their vibrancy for not being artificial.

Today I am showing you our Rainbow Cupcakes. They will be available to buy individually or by the half dozen - you will receive one of each colour. As seen in the picture, they come in red, yellow, pink, green, orange and blue. Each cupcake consists of vanilla sponge covered with buttercream, and dotted with a single matching sugared chocolate.

We will be showcasing more of our child-friendly cakes in the near future.

Don't forget we go live on June 1st. We will have our full menu available shortly, and will begin taking orders two weeks before launch day!
