We have got a lot to catch up on, sorry if it is a bit long!!
October was a great month with a lot of exciting cakes and really nice customers as always!! and plenty of fantastic orders coming in already for the next few months which is very reassuring.
I have received a few great corporate orders for company celebrations lately which is something I am looking at promoting more, so if your company has a celebration of any kind coming up pass on my details.
(There could be a cupcake gift box voucher in it for you if they order)
Christmas orders are coming in thick and fast, again a few big name companies have ordered for staff gifts and also to give out to suppliers and customers.
One of the biggest sellers so far are the Christmas Cupcake gift box
There is also an option of having one of the cupcakes with your company logo
and Christmas message as an edible disc.
Please contact me for more details.
A couple of orders have been placed already to have them as Christmas gifts for teachers for the end of term, they are also great for colleagues or friends,
(more personal than a box of chocs from the supermarket)
I have a few dates already fully booked out for December so get in quick.
The Giant Christmas Cupcake is also a great option as a celebration for: office's, team's, staffroom's, Mothers groups or just about any other excuse you could think of.
These can also be ordered with additional Christmas tree Cupcakes
The Candy/Lolly buffets are proving to be a hit. These are great for any occasion and can be colour co-ordinated to your party, function or company colours.
They can be done for 35 - 5000 people so please let me know if you have any questions
Great news for me this week is my "Monster" oven has been fitted
(by a great plumber if anybody needs one)
I am having a test run this afternoon it should fit atleast 100 cupcakes ago insted of the 24 ago I have been using, which will be great for the 2000 cupcakes I already
have on order for December!!!!!
I promised in the last blog that I would update the "Testimonies" on my website, which I have collated and will do soon, for now I will list a few on here.
Here are a few of my favourite orders from last month:
George's Pirate cake
Everyone enjoyed the cake. It was fantastic. Thanks.
Commonwealth Bank Farewell Mark
(Batman marathon cake)
"Fantastic cake Neil, thank you so much for pulling this off with such short notice, from the few details we gave you, you created a perfect farewell cake, enough for 180 people!
It tasted delicious and Mark was absolutely delighted,
much more original than a bottle of Whiskey or wine.
We will be in-touch for the next occasion"
Anne's 75th Birthday
I just wanted to let you know how beautiful the cake looked and tasted. Everyone loved the flavours and the colour. Mum had a great time and the cake made the occasion that little bit more special. Thank you so much. We'll definitely be in touch for the next one!"
Joshua's Soccer cake
Gabi's Health and Happiness Party
"Morning Neil, Just wanted to say thank you so very much for yesterday. Cakes looked beautiful....had just 3 little cup cakes left plus the big one. Butter cream icing was a particular hit.

Jade's Halloween/Birthday party
Beau's 1st Birthday
"Cake was perfect, everyone was talking about it and it tasted great"
Our new addition to the family is doing great, Hugo is well over his reflux which we are very grateful to Katherine who is a chiropractor with a practice next door but one from my shop (one in the city too). We are telling anybody who will listen how great she was with Hugo, a lot of people have told us since, about the benefits they have had for themselves and their children from chiropractors so take a look
If anybody is wondering what the poor effort of a gingery, blondy shadow above my top lip is,
I am supporting "MOVEMBER" It is a great charity supporting Mens Health, you basically try!!!!! and grow a "Mo" for the whole of November and hopefully get a few sponsors along the way.
If anybody remembers my atrocious attempts of growing a "Mo" in my late teens & early 20's they know it will not be a masculine lip rug or
handle bar "Mo" but a poor attempt of a dodgy milk "Mo"
which will make me look like my dad!!!
Check out the link below to my "Mo Bro" page for more details and to donate to this great cause, I will do a Mo cake for the biggest donation I receive through the link below which will be announced at the end of the event!
If anybody wants to join me let me know, ladies can become 'Mo Sista's' too (no need to grow a Mo, just support Mo Bro's)http://mobro.co/neilsmithpeekaboopartycakes
Hugo is my first supporter!!!
As allways, thank you for taking a look at my blog, please pass it on to anybody you think may be interested.
