Christmas Cupcakes, in the house!

The days are shorter, the air is colder and central London is ablaze with beautiful lights, which means that Christmas is just around the corner! We love London at Christmas time, and we don’t think that anyone visiting the capital at this time of year could help but get swept up in the festive spirit.

Christmas Cupcakes

Team C&D start thinking about Christmas waaaaay earlier than is probably acceptable, but this means that we have loads of time to come up with an amazing Christmas offering. This year our Christmas selection will include returning superstars like Christmas Pudding, Salted Caramel, Christmas Spice and Red Velvet with some very welcome newbies like Mince Pie, Chocolate Truffle and Candy Cane!

In addition to our standard offering, we also specialise in really amazing, original corporate cupcakes and can add any logo you like to our fun festive selection. If you don’t want to ferry them all over London, we also arrange deliveries, so we’ve got your corporate gifting covered! Email info@crumbsanddoilies.co.uk for more info!

Nightmare before Christmas cupcakes


Hi all. With all the Halloween excitement I clean forgot to post these little chaps, though perhaps midway between Halloween and Christmas is the perfect time, in which case I forgot nothing and it’s all part of my big plan. Anywho, here’s some way cool Nightmare Before Christmas cupcakes from a while back from Mark for Claire’s birthday.

Christmas wedding tower!


Hi everyone! And a special hi to long-time C&D fan and newly-married man Sean, who was kind enough to send us through these lovely pictures of the wedding cupcakes we did for his Christmassy wedding. Sean, of course, wooed his fiancée with the highly-regarded Jigglypuff cupcakes. Who could resist?

Congratulations guys!

Christmas catch-up…

Hey hey! Guess what? I found my camera lead, so my little blog is back to its full, um, glory… Anyway, because of the slight technical difficulty I’m guessing most of your Christmas trees will have been whisked away to the great pinetum in the sky, but here’s a very quick look back at some cupcake-related Christmas stuff…

I’m sure you’re all sick to death of the sight of our Christmas Cupcakes, but here are some slightly different ones we did for the good folks over at Warner Brothers. Very coordinated.


And (again) thanks to everyone who popped along to the market just before Christmas to say hi and grab some festive cupcakes. Here’s a few pics of the stall for those that couldn’t make it…




We’re back!

Hi everyone. Hope you all had wonderful Christmasseses, and that 2009’s working out great for you so far. Sorry for the lack of postings over the festive period. I had a bit of a run-in with the Christmas tree and have been taking it easy for the start of the ’09. The C&D ovens are back to full power now though. Jemma and the girls are covered in icing sugar (as per usual) and Sam’s bashing out emails while surreptitiously tuning into the Adam & Joe Podcast. He calls it multi-tasking but I’m not so sure. Anyway, we’ll be back at the Kings Road market on Duke of York Square this Saturday, so do pop along and say hi if you’re in the area. Huge thanks to everyone who dropped by for our Christmas market special just before Christmas by the way – I’ll try and get some pics up once I’ve found the lead for my camera.

In the meantime take it easy, and I’ll leave you with a couple of nice colourful pics of Yiskah’s wedding cupcakes from just before Christmas…


Christmas in Chelsea


Hi all. Hope your birds are stuffed, trees trimmed, eggs nogged and so on. Thanks to everyone who ordered our Christmas cupcakes this year, and sorry to everyone who missed out – we got booked up quite quickly. Anywho, if you’re in central or SW London this Saturday and feeling festive you could do a lot worse than pop along to the stall on the Kings Road. It’ll be open from 10am and we’ll be selling loads of Christmassy cupcakes, both individually and in our flashy gift boxes of 15. What’s more, you can download the voucher below to snag yourself a box for the crunch-bustingly good price of just £10!

See you there, and have a very Happy Christmas!

Competition winner – December


Hi everyone. Sheesh – sorry. It’s been almost a week since my last post, which I think may be some kind of record. Christmas is almost upon us, y’see, and I’ve been making sure the Xmas sprinkle stocks are topped up and properly catalogued ‘cos the little fellas are taking a battering this week! I also had a little bit of Christmas present shopping to take care of, and a tree to find, so I’ve been a busy monkey. Anyway, I’m back – and just in time to announce the winner of this month’s Name the Cupcake competition! A big festive congratulations to Suzana, who picked the winning name, ‘Bake if or leaf it’. One or other of my assistants will be in touch to sort Suze out with her free cupcakes…

In the meantime eyes front the rest of you, as this month’s competition starts right now! Just take a look at the Christmassy little chap below and send us your entry. The best name gets 24 free mini cupcakes delivered in central/SW London (or you can come and collect of course) plus a mini stand to display them on.

Happy naming!
