Flavour of the Month: November

Hi all. Just a quickie to remind you that November’s Flavour of the Month is the amazing Razzmatazz flavour – though up by Kathryn who won our create your dream cupcake competition and featuring an unbeatable combination of raspberries, limes and sherbert frosting! They’ll be available all through November to order and from our stalls in Covent Garden and on the Kings Road.

Flavour of the Month – October!

I’m getting a bit ahead of myself here but here’s a sneak peak at next month’s Flavour of the Month – Pumpkin & Cream Cheese Frosting! These autumnal little chaps boast a super-moist, squishy pumpkin sponge infused with ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg, and are topped with a delicious dollop of smooth, cool, cream cheese icing. They’re amazing, and if you’d like to try them for yourself we’ll have some at our regular Saturday hang-out on the Kings Road tomorrow on Duke of York Square. They’re also available to order in the usual way of course, and will be at all our markets throughout October.

New competition!

What with it being National Cupcake Week this week I thought it might be a good time to mention our new September competition! All month we’re offering you lucky so and so’s the chance to create your perfect cupcake flavour, and have us make it for you!

All you have to do is cruise over to the competition page and let us know what flavour or flavour combination you think would make the perfect cupcake. You can give us as much (or as little) detail as you like, and at the end of the month we’ll go through all the entries with a fine tooth comb and pick a winner.

The best bit of all though is the prize: The winner gets to see their dream become sweet, spongy reality courtesy of the C&D team! We’ll put your flavour on our menu as Flavour of the Month for November and hook you up with a full cupcake feast of your winning flavour: A giant cupcake, a dozen big and two dozen mini cupcakes, all for free delivery in our usual area, or for collection from us, during November.

Happy creating everyone!


Flavour of the Month – September

Hi all. Just a quick one to let you know that this month’s Flavour of the Month is Lavender Caramel! Made with freshly-prepared organic lavender-infused caramel they’re pretty special, not to mention especially pretty, and you can order them via the website or pop along to one of the stalls to try ’em out for yourself!

Flavour of the Month – Strawberries & Cream

Hi gang. Just a quickie to let you know about August’s Flavour of the Month, Strawberries & Cream! Strawberry is one of our most-requested flavours and these fruity little chaps don’t disappoint – packed with real fruit and topped with creamy buttercream with a hint of vanilla, then finished with a strawberry swirl (that’s real British strawbs at work again there) they’re perfect for the English summertime.

Strawberries & Cream cupcakes will be available at our Kings Road and Covent Garden stalls from tomorrow, and of course you can include them as part of any bespoke order.

Salted Caramel Mudslide wedding cupcakes

Speaking of Flavour of the Month here’s a whole order of the chocolatey, caramel-y little fellas we did for Candice’s wedding…

Flavour of the Month – Salted Caramel Mudslide

Oops – the guys have also just reminded me that I totally neglected to mention this month’s Flavour of the Month – and it’s a doozie. Our Salted Caramel Mudslide cupcakes boast a super-rich, super-chocolatey chocolate mudcake sponge, topped with our ridiculously good salted caramel buttercream icing. They’re amazing, and available at any of our weekly stalls or to order in the usual way!

Flavour of the Month – Summer Chai

Hi all. Just a quick post to let you know that our Flavour of the Month for June is Summer Chai – a wonderfully fragrant, lightly spiced cupcake made with organic black chai tea and topped with a sliver of crystalised ginger. The exotic little chaps will be available all month from our stalls as well as to order online.

FotM – Raspberry Ripple!

Hi everyone. I’m psyched with a capital P (that sounds wrong, doesn’t it?) to announce that July’s Flavour of the Month is upon us! One of my personal favourites – Raspberry Ripple – is making a welcome return to C&D, and will be available to order and on both the Saturday stalls throughout July.

We make our Raspberry Ripple cupcakes with very special organic Madagascan vanilla extract and a swirl of real raspberry purée, which is made fresh every morning using real raspberries, a squeeze of lemon juice, a dash of vanilla and a little sugar. No additives, preservatives or pasturised raspberry whatsit – all natural, and all delicious!

New flavours – the gang’s all here!

Hi all. More exciting new website-related gubbins with the news that (as some of you may have noticed) our flavour range has expanded! Of course, the classics are all still present and correct (Vanilla, Lemon, Chocolate, Vanilla Rose, Earl Grey and the ever-awesome Flavour of the Month) but they’re joined by 3 new pals – an amazingly decadent Red Velvet, smooth Salted Caramel and, for the first time, Gluten Free!

You can find out more about the new guys – and the old ones – over on the flavours page. They’re all available to order via the site for delivery or collection, and we’ll be bringing a selection along to our Saturday market stalls each week for you to buy direct.

Hope you like ’em! And don’t forget that from tomorrow we’ll be breaking out the raspberries for July’s Flavour of the Month: Raspberry Ripple!


FotM for June: Green Tea!

Hi all. Hope you had a super bank holiday weekend. Just a quickie to let you know that this month’s Flavour of the Month is officially Green Tea! Made with real Sencha green tea (all the way from Shizuoka in Japan) and a hint of Madagascan vanilla these little guys are light, fragrant and perfect for summer snacking. They’ll be available at both our Kings Road and Covent Garden stalls every Saturday throughout June, and you can order them for deliver and collection over on the main site.


Flavour of the Month – March!

Hey hey. I’m waiting for an enormous sprinkle delivery but before that arrives there’s just time to tell you about our Flavour of the Month for March – Hot Toddy! It’s a delicious golden sponge flavoured with organic lemons, cinnamon and cloves, finished with an ever-so-slightly naughty Irish whisky buttercream. They’re tasty, they’re warming, and they’ll be available every week at the Kings Road stall, as well as to order Mon-Sat in the usual way.

Flavour of the Month – Salted Caramel!

Hi all. Just a very quick post to officially announce that February’s Flavour of the Month will be…Salted Caramel! We’ve been looking into the many and wonderful flavour possibilities of salted caramel for some time (as the gang’s expanding waistlines can attest) and we’re absolutely delighted to have found a way to capture all it’s salty, sweet, moreish glory in cupcake form.

We’re so excited in fact that we’re going to be unleashing them a couple of days early – pop along to our Kings Road stall in Chelsea tomorrow for a sneak peak!

On a related note we’ve re-jigged the Flavour of the Month page on the website slightly, so you can now see what the next few flavours will be and plan your cupcake buying life accordingly. Check it out here.

Have a great weekend everyone!


Flavour of the Month – November

Guess what? It’s Flavour of the Month time again… Allow me to introduce you to the latest member of our select cupcake gang – Red Velvet! It’s something of a well-worn classic in the cupcake world so we’ve spent a very long time working on our Red Velvet flavour to ensure it’s the best around. A moist, slightly tart chocolate-y vanilla-y sponge topped with a rich, smooth cream cheese frosting, these bad boys are personally responsible for a noticeable rise in the average weight of the C&D kitchen crew. All in the name of research of course – and we think it’s been worth it!

Our Red Velvet cupcakes will be available to order in the usual way throughout November and of course you can also buy them direct from our Kings Road and Covent Garden market stalls.

Flavour of the Month – October!

Man – I’ve been so busy organising my Halloween sprinkles I completely forgot to put up details of this month’s Flavour of the Month! Anyway (fanfare please…) October is going to be all about ChocolateOrange flavour! That’s right – the zesty tang of sweet organic Naval oranges mixed with a rich, dark chocolate sponge. It’s a winning combination!

You can find more details over on the main site, but suffice to say these fruity fellas will be a regular fixture at every C&D stall during October, and of course you can also order them in the usual way. They’ll also be making an appearance as part of our very special Halloween boxes – more details on those soon…
