FeaturesBirthday Cupcake Showdown!

Birthday Cupcake Showdown!

This month at Gallery we decided to enlist the help of a number of sugar chefs, all of who were given the task of creating the best cupcake possible! The theme – Gallery’s 100th anniversary.

A series of cupcake creations began to saunter their way into the office, and amidst the wows from fellow colleagues wanting to get a bite, we quickly discovered that the art of cupcake creation is anything but simple!
From vintage-inspired designs complete with ribbons and pearls, to off-the-scale banoffee enthused masterpieces; each and every cupcake showcased an innovative and edgy style – just one of the reasons the cupcake trend is growing bigger and better by the minute.

The Cake Factory
The Company From delicate hand made flowers to designs enthused with running water and flames, the Cake Factory enjoy breaking a few boundaries when it comes to cupcake creation.
The Cupcake Go big or go home! That’s the Cake Factory’s motto and they certainly lived up to it with a gigantic banana and choc sponge, filled with a Dulce de Leche caramel, fresh bananas and whipped cream, finished with white Belgium Choc.

Absence and fondness

I saw an Instagram reel the other day where the aspiring parent-influencing content creator claimed that holidays aren’t holidays once you have children; you just spend time looking after your kids in a different location. I suppose that’s true, to an extent. Regardless, like many islanders with children, we hot-foot it onto a ferry or plane at half term to make use of those precious moments away from the school run. I’m finishing up this edition while being asked what’s for dinner, but in France. Magnifique.
