Corporate Cupcakes

12 Jul

I was elated to get a request from one of our local newspapers, Botswana Guardian, for corporate cupcakes the other week! FINALLY!!! Companies here fail to realise how there are so many different ways to enhance your marketing and client/customer retention that go beyond the traditional cooler bags and t-shirts and other obnoxious corporate gifts (like those ridiculous branded desk clocks…..bleh)!

The rest of the world has grabbed onto the whole branded cupcakes trend for events and other corporate purposes, so I breathed a huge sigh of relief when Guardian asked us to do their corporate cupcakes which would be given to their clients as gifts.

It’s the Guardian’s 30 year anniversary, so they are in the process of doing breakfast runs to their clients using our cupcakes (amongst other yummy eats gotten from elsewhere) on an almost weekly basis.



Fabulous, fabulous stuff. Well done to you, Guardian, for picking up on the trend and congratulations on an amazing 30 years of providing our nation with accurate and time-relevant news! Be blessed!

Sorry I haven’t been updating my blog in a while, July has been super hectic, which is always a good thing for Bella Pastry 🙂

Anyway, just wanted to post two more pictures of cakes I’ve recently done.

The first one is one of my favorite cakes, ever. The Hello Kitty Cake.

I’m a massive Hello Kitty fan, and have been ever since I was 6 years old, and still can’t shake her. So when I was asked to make a Hello Kitty cake for a little girl’s birthday party, I was more than excited to do so. It wasnt hard to make at all. I didn’t use a ready-made pan, I actually just cut out the shape as close to the real thing as possible. It’s not identical, but pretty good, I think!!! It was simple to decorate, which is always good LOL, but came out beautifully!!!

And next is another birthday cake with the Manchester United emblem, altered to reveal a cute little message for the birthday guy!

Thanks to all who have continued to support Bella Pastry with all your many orders! Keep them coming…
