Kerry’s Bouqcakes features in Vogue Paris
Over the years that I have been running Kerry’s Bouqcakes, I have been incredibly fortunate to have had the opportunity to feature in various cake, craft, wedding and fashion magazines. I have written articles on my business or been interviewed in a Q&A style piece. It still feels so surreal when I see my work printed either in hard copy or posted online. I’m really a one-woman band and don’t have a huge team behind me like a lot of other cake businesses that get mentioned in magazines do. I mean don’t get me wrong I have my absolutely wonderful family around me encouraging me and helping out in various areas of the business. Luckily my Mum has good IT skills so I don’t have to worry about the website as she has that in hand along with my web host. My hubby helps me with making up cake boxes not to mention childcare. You will have heard me mention Chloe who is part-time but invaluable and does some of my Marketing and Admin. However, the daily management is all on my shoulders!Read More
Talking to your children : Coronavirus #stopthespread
You will find that this is a slightly different blog from my norm but I felt I wanted to discuss this topic in some way or another. As I have already mentioned before across my social media channels, we are currently living in extremely difficult and unprecedented times, taking not only each day as it comes but each hour. Society is having to adapt like never before due to the coronavirus / Covid-19 pandemic, whether that be working from home rather than going in to the office every day, staying indoors when we’re used to going out and about, staying away from our loved family members and friends or trying our very best to home-school our little ones.Read More
Kerry’s Bouqcakes 3rd Birthday SALE! Celebrate with us.
This week I’m celebrating my business birthday, three years since the beginning of Kerry’s Bouqcakes and to help celebrate this milestone I’ve added a flash SALE to my website! If you’d told me when I started this business that I’d have over 200,000 followers from around the world across my social media channels I don’t think I would have believed you! Then again, I definitely wouldn’t have believed if you’d told me that Kerry’s Bouqcakes would be celebrating its third year of business in the middle of a global pandemic, with me temporarily closing my order books.Read More
Mother’s Day is a celebration honouring the Mother of the family, or Mother figure, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds and the influence of Mothers in society. In many parts of the world it would usually be celebrated this Sunday, 22nd March. Presents with ‘World’s Best Mummy’ would be exchanged and my cupcakes gifted as a yummy twist on traditional flowers. This year will be a Mother’s Day like no other, as scores of people self isolate and are forced to rethink plans with loved ones which to be honest with you, totally sucks!Read More
More about the life of a Cupcake
We all love that occasional buttery, creamy, soft and tasty cupcake. Whether it be Victoria sponge with plain buttercream or chocolate sponge with ganache topping. We can all find a space for this little cup of unctuousness. So is this little marvel a new phenomenon or does it have some history. I thought it would be interesting to do a bit of delving and find out.Read More
Valentine’s Day Ramblings
What are you planning for this Valentine’s Day?
As I expect you realise, I will be very, VERY busy making Valentine Bouquets for my loyal customers. I have one chap who has been back every year to buy a cupcake bouquet for his partner. He has secretly admitted to me that it’s a tad self-indulgent as he gets to share them so a double win for him.Read More
