Cake Toppers*

I was recently contacted by a company called Cake Toppers, who are actually pretty local to me, which is always nice, as I like to support local businesses. I think I’d seen their name floating around before, but didn’t know an awful lot about them. So, when they asked if I would like to try out a couple of their personalised cupcakes, I couldn’t say no! Spookily, I actually received their e-mail when I was at my friend, Katy’s, house, and she just so happened to have used them to make some toppers to promote her business! It must have been fate!




They asked me to drop them an e-mail with the image I wanted on my cupcakes, so I decided to go for my lovely YouTube logo, designed by the brilliant Amy Rose Studios. I wasn’t really sure what to expect, as I’ve seen personalised cupcakes before and they can sometimes look a bit tacky. So, when mine arrived, I was excited to see what they looked like.




My cupcakes came nicely and securely packaged, so there was no chance of them getting squished or damaged. I was really impressed with the quality of the image, printed with edible ink onto a thin sheet of icing, rather than using rice paper. They looked really professional and I would definitely be happy to promote my brand with them. But the most important thing was the taste test. If I’m completely honest, I expected the cakes to be a bit dry and tasteless. How wrong was I! The sponge was light and fluffy, and both the chocolate and vanilla flavours were extremely yummy. Unfortunately the actual cakes aren’t gluten or dairy free; however, you can buy the toppers on their own (which contain no wheat, gluten, dairy products, eggs or nuts) and put them on your own cakes, which is a really great option for people with food allergies.




Cake Toppers can do both cupcakes and larger cakes for a whole range of occasions, from weddings and anniversaries to birthdays and company logos. They also offer a selection of character cakes and cake toppers, such as Mickey Mouse, Frozen, Peppa Pig and Angry Birds for very reasonable prices.




As well as sending me a couple of cupcakes to try, Cake Toppers have also kindly sent me a discount code to share with you guys! So, if you want to get 10% off your cake order, simply type RJCAT10 into the promotion code box at the checkout. To get ordering, head over to the Cake Toppers website here.
