Cupcakes are fantastically popular, and are definitely here to stay. The internet is packed full of scrumptious recipes and images of beautifully decorated cupcakes, and the market is huge and hungry for more. Even the traditional wedding cake has had to give way to the rise of the humble cupcake, and everyone from professional bakers to home cooks are having a go. But if you've ever tried eating a cupcake elegantly at a party whilst holding a glass of champagne in the other hand, you'll understand why the mini cupcake is a popular and practical alternative to the standard cupcake for parties, weddings, corporate lunches, etc. involving a stand-up buffet. Mini cupcakes can be eaten in one mouthful, enabling you to carry on a conversation and keep hold of that all-important glass of bubbly at the same time.

She initially baked for family, friends and work colleagues at work, but in 2011 set up her own company, Yumptious, baking and decorating cupcakes and cakes of all sizes from her home in Tunbridge Wells.
