Hi there, and welcome to our little home on the Internet. We are a Husband and Wife team (Bobbie & Michael), who together, run Forest Cupcakes. Founded in 2012, this is a part-time cake business which we run for our family home in the New Forest. Neither of us are professionally trained in cake decorating, but over the years, we’ve perfected our cake decorating skills to produce high-quality celebration cakes that we are both proud of. We work really well as a team, with each of us having our own strengths. Bobbie is in charge of baking and Michael has perfected the tricky art of covering the cakes in fondant. He also takes on all the carved cakes (and ‘boy cakes’), whereas Bobbie prefers creating the hand-made sugar flowers and pretty detailing on the wedding and ‘girly’ cakes.
Please take some time to browse our gallery. All the cakes that appear on this website are our own work, and hopefully, speak for themselves. Attention to detail is important to both of us, so no cake will ever leave our house unless we are totally happy with the finish. We are proud to say that we have built up a loyal customer base, with many returning year after year for their celebration cakes.
Please note that because of the part-time nature of our business, we only take on one or two orders every week. This means that we book up fast and will often have to turn down orders. So please, if you’d like to book a cake with us, please contact us sooner rather than later to secure your date. Even if you don’t know the exact details, a deposit will secure the date and details can be discussed nearer the time.
We look forward to hearing from you and, hopefully, creating your next special cake!
Bobbie and Michael
