We’re often asked for themed cupcakes and this time we were asked to come up with some ideas for a few best loved places that have been visited for a special birthday. Spain and France are featured but we wonder how many more places you can name?
It was a lot of fun modelling all these ‘animals’ for Ayla’s birthday cake. Particularly love Chloe the Fresian. But then, Felix the Frog is also a favourite. As is Pasha the Porker. Or then there’s…
This order was for Jenny’s 60th birthday who was so excited to see her finished cake. To say she was pleased is an understatement! This design features ruffle roses, flowers and butterflies.
Say ‘hello’ to Pippa the Pug! How sweet is this?
This special order on-trend cake features a handbag shaped vanilla sponge cake in turquoise – the colour of the moment – with a little ‘pug’ sitting inside.
Valentine’s Day is always a hectic time of year and this year was no exception. We have lots of requests to include messages on our cupcakes or to include a special message on a card. Of course, Valentine’s Day is traditionally associated with tokens of love but other dates throughout the year are also special – the first date, the first anniversary – and sweet treats such as these red velvet cupcakes are the best way we know of making the occasion memorable. What’s your special day? – make it a day to remember.
This floral tribute was requested as a surprise for a much-loved Gran celebrating her milestone 80th birthday with family and friends. We hope it was a memorable birthday made extra special with this sweet treat.
Our mission was to give this design a 70s vibe with lots of flowers and lots of colour. Our customer could hardly contain her delight when she saw the finished design. We’re pleased to say we captured her requirements exactly and we hope her mum was as thrilled with it as she was.
We’re so lucky to be able to share in your celebrations – and here we have a celebration cake fit for a 3 year old. Dinosaurs are Kalam’s favourite thing, so we couldn’t disappoint, could we?
This egg-free 2-tier vanilla sponge features a baby dinosaur topper. We love to hear your feedback on our cakes and in the words of Kalam’s mum this design was simply ‘perfect’.
It has been an exceptionally busy year for us and we would like to send our thanks along with seasons greetings to all our customers.
We hope you all enjoyed your Christmas together with loving family and great friends and found some time among the festivities to put your feet up and relax a little! We know how difficult that can be!
We look forward to hearing from you in the New Year and to see what cake challenges you set for us in 2019. Don’t forget, whatever you’re celebrating – we have a cake for it!
We hope you all have a wonderful New Year.
December is always a very busy time for us bakers. It’s also a short month so that we always advise our customers to order their celebration cakes early as – just like in the high wedding season – December is always booked up early. This year has been exceptionally busy and, regrettably, we’ve had to disappoint a lot of people. Take a look at our contact page for the suggested length of notice we usually ask for then at least double it during peak periods.
Whatever the time of year and whatever you’re celebrating – please ensure you order in plenty of time to avoid disappointment.
We’ll take this opportunity to wish all our customers the very best of the season and we look forward to providing more fabulous designs for you in 2019.
Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year!
A beautiful floral display of brightly coloured flowers as a fitting tribute to Madeleine – 80 years young and looking forward to a family celebration. Floral colours included pink, lemon and lavender.
We all know trends come and go. There is always the next new ‘big thing’ but one request that is always on trend is the call for Superhero cakes. Here is one such request from a young man who has had a tough year. For his birthday nothing less than the man of steel would do. it had to be Superman and it had to be chocolate.
No sooner said than done! We hope it made his day.
There’s a superhero in all of us – we just need the courage to put on the cape!
Everyone has a favourite cake – or at least a cake that they find it difficult to refuse. This is one of those cakes as far as we’re concerned. Carrot cake is one of our most requested flavours and the addition of real carrot ensures a moist crumb is guaranteed.
Carrot cake is a welcome addition to any dessert table. Check out this birthday edition complete with chopped walnuts and topped off with sugar carrots. What a special treat…go on – you know you want to,,,
Are you planning a celebration? And is it going to be in September or October? Yes on both counts? Read on my friend…
We’ve been asked to share this information with you, So whether it’s a birthday or an anniversary or any other celebration – a large affair or a small gathering – Tom Graham would like to hear from you.

The story behind this birthday cake is that the birthday boy is a keen photographer. His wife had a few ideas about how she wanted to honor his milestone birthday and this was the end result. We included an edible replica of the Nikon Camera complete with strap made with fondant and included a few images around the side to add to the effect.
Cake has a wonderful way of making an occasion into a celebration. From the arrival of baby to birthdays and weddings and all the events in-between, cake is usually the centre-piece, the one thing we look forward to and expect to see. Personalised cake makes the event even more special, just as here, marking a big birthday with cupcakes. Makes a person feel extra special, don’t you agree?
It just so happens that this cake was requested for an 80th birthday celebration, but whatever the age, nothing says it better than flowers. We were also asked to pay homage to Anita’s home town in the form of her favourite football club.
Super hero cakes are a classic when it comes to party cake themes. During 2017 the super hero cake has remained one of the top trends. Bold, graphic lettering, bright colors, masks and capes are all fun design elements that can be easily customized while staying within the super hero theme. This trend looks set to continue in 2018.
Turning 18 is quite a big deal and the 18th Birthday is often celebrated in big style. No matter how young or old that special man in your life happens to be, Sweet Williams Cakes is the place to come for that special celebration cake and who doesn’t enjoy a lovely piece of cake – not many that we know!
We know just how much you love our cupcakes and we also know how much you love a slice of cake. Well here’s the chance to have the best of both worlds – in the shape of a giant cupcake. We have to say that these giants are a particular favourite with the guys – chocolate flavour, covered with your favourite chocolates – yes, we can see the attraction! Just for a change, why not try the zingy lemon flavour, vanilla or even caramel flavour with salt caramel buttercream? With all the trimmings these beauties are definitely a show stopper – and there’s lots to go round. Go on – you know you’d love one…..
What better way to celebrate a big birthday than with a giant cupcake? When the call came in we found out that Mark is partial to a bit of chocolate so there really couldn’t be any other flavour – chocolate cake and a few of his favourite sweets, too. We hope he gave Emma his last Rolo for dreaming up this delicious surprise!
Wasps… (the sporty, hunky, rugby types, you understand – not the buzzing, flying types with a nasty sting) really got to grips with our cupcakes during a touchdown at their training ground! It was all we could do to steer clear of the scrum during our delivery! This selection of oreo, red velvet and salt caramel cupcakes were sent with love to Brendan Macken of Wasps Rugby FC who celebrated his birthday recently. We hope he got to try a few, although it was looking doubtful when his team mates attempted a conversion! Those pesky Wasps….!
