Favourite cupcake flavours is a topic as hotly-debated in the C&D bakery as who’s turn it is to put the kettle on, and sometimes there’s only one way to settle it – with a good old-fashioned fight to the death (not for the kettle debate of course, that just tends to come down to who wants a cup of tea the most). So it is that we’re running our first #CupcakeBattle over on Instagram: two awesome cupcakes, one victor, and everyone’s a winner!
This week, Eton Mess vs Caramel Mudslide – whichever flavour gets the most ‘likes’ will win Guest of Honour status at our Covent Garden cupcake stall this Thursday, and we’ll have 24 of them to give away to people who can show us their phones with the winning cupcake ‘liked’ (one per person, subject to availability, natch) on the day. Click below for a quick preview of each flavour plus the location of the C&D Covent Garden stall, and Let Battle Commence!

Thanks to everyone who came along to the Johnny Cupcakes London store’s 1st birthday party last weekend and congrats to all who managed to snag themselves one of our cupcakes! You can find more pics soon on the JC blog and on the ever-excellent Giles Smith photography site.
Thanks to everyone who entered our latest Name the Cupcake competition – we had well over a thousand entries but as ever there can only be one winner, and this time Lyn is the lucky entrant in question, thanks to her puntastic name selection: Toto Recall!
One of the guys will be in touch with Lyn this afternoon to arrange her prize – a sweet, sweet box of 8 dozen delicious mini cupcakes! For everyone else thanks for taking the time to join in with the cupcake naming, and there’ll be a new competition over on the main site at the start if next week!
Hi all. A little bird’s told me that the lovely folk at Johnny Cupcakes on Fouberts Place will have a supply of our wonderful mini cupcakes to give away tomorrow. Sweet threads and free cakes? It’s a win-win! Shop opens at 11am and of course it’s a bit of a first-come first-served type deal. See you there!

Hi gang. Did you know that ‘Blue Monday’ (17th January) is officially the most depressing day of the year? Me neither. Anyway, the perky guys over at ActionAid are taking things into their own hands and will be striking a blow for collective happiness courtesy of their cool Happy Bubble event.
The event will be housed in two giant inflatable ‘happy bubbles’ with real grass, white picket fences, chill out zones, kittens, bunnies, fake sunlight, a wellie splish-splash zone and all the things that make you feel good including, of course, a few hundred C&D cupcakes! It’s situated right next to Liverpool Street station on Finsbury Avenue Square, and the happiness will run from 7am-7pm.
See you there!
Guess what? Internet T-shirt-and-other-cool-stuff-with-cupcakes-on-it supremo Johnny Cupcakes is coming to London! You can meet him (and heaps of other JC fans) in Leicester Square this Saturday at the Johnny Cupcakes London meet-up!
It kicks off at 3pm… And oh yeah – we’ll be providing a tonne of free cupcakes for everyone who comes along.
If you haven’t heard of Johnny yet you can find out more about him, his great story and his even greater clothes over on his website.
See you there!
Great news for people who like cupcakes. Even better news for people who like free cupcakes. We’re going to be giving away a limited number of free cupcakes every Thursday via our Covent Garden market stall!
There’ll be five boxes of a dozen cupcakes available each week and to get your hands on some you’ll need to keep an eye on our Twitter page. Follow us (or keep checking back) and every Wednesday or Thursday throughout the summer we’ll post up instructions on how to nab yourself some of London’s greatest cupcakes, for free! The first free cupcake tweet will be up this afternoon…
