Hello I am Sarah the owner of Kandycupcakes and this year is our 10th anniversary.
Before I opened I always enjoyed baking for family and friends and everything really began when I started baking cupcakes and selling them at my daughters dance school cafe. It was soon very clear to see that they were going to be a huge success!
In the early days I was spending a lot of time in London because of my husband’s business and I used to enjoy spending hours walking around and looking at all the new cake shops and bakeries that were opening
We moved to Woodhouse Eaves and in the garden there was a derelict cottage and that was when we had the idea to renovate and open it up as Kandycupcakes.
The idea was to have the kitchen at the back of the shop behind the counter so when people came in they had the warm smell of cakes in the oven and I would be there icing and decorating for people to see. Every cake was decorated by me and I tried to make each one individual.
People used to say that coming in to Kandycupcakes was like stepping in to a fairytale with lots of sweets and pretty things to look at, I even had people just coming in to take photographs.
There is a video on my Instagram and Facebook page for you to watch so it gives you an idea of how lovely it was.
There were many hours of hard work but it wasn’t long before I was baking for private clients and celebrities and in the past I have baked cakes for opening nights at The Curve, photographic work for Sainsbury’s packaging and many sports personalities!
I have always been very creative and am drawn to bright colours and am not shy of using lots of colour in my creations.
I am at my happiest when I am baking and am constantly thinking of new ideas in my head!
Many times people message me to say thank you for making them happy.
Two years ago I decided to close the shop and I now bake to order from home and I deliver or you can collect from the house, and I have just started posting my brownies and tray bakes nationally.
I am still busy and always try and accommodate everyone’s needs and even in lockdown people want a little Kandycupcakes love
