Today is the start of National Cupcake Week!
Lasting up until Sunday 22nd September, the event is held to raise money for CLIC Sargent and promote bakery businesses to encourage sales.
Alongside National Cupcake Week, there is a competition held annually called the National Cupcake Championships. This allows those in the cupcake industry to demonstrate their talents and have a shot at winning the coveted professional competition.
Whether you have your own business that you’re trying to endorse, or you just want to get involved in making some sweet treats in honour of the occasion, it’s the perfect opportunity to show off your skills and raise some money for a hugely deserving charity.
To impress, you will of course need to stock up on some tools to help you to achieve the perfect cupcake, so look no further than the baking supplies section at drinkstuff!
You won’t want to cut corners and risk ruining your recipes by being inaccurate with quantities, so investing in some Mason Cash Measuring Spoons and Mason Cash Measuring Cups will be well worth your time and money.
Or how about using these Genware Kitchen Scales, an ideal product for helping you to weigh out your ingredients correctly.
Once all of the components to your recipe have been precisely measured out, you will need some utensils to aid in creating the perfect consistency for your cupcake batter.
At this point, all of your ingredients should be well combined, so these spatulas will be very useful in aiding easy transition of the mixture into your cupcake baking tray.
After waiting for your cupcakes to bake in the oven, the next step will be to top them with icing and decorate.
To achieve that professional swirl effect, you will need a piping bag and some different sized and shaped nozzles. We have a variety of Icing Sets for you to choose from to help you create striking designs, from large swirls to small intricate detail.
If you’re looking to produce something more indulgent than the average cupcake, how about filling yours with buttercream or jam? You can easily remove the middle of the cakes with this Swift Easy Cupcake Corer and Filler, and then use it to fill each one with your chosen filling.
Now that your cupcakes have been lovingly decorated, you may wish to display them or need to transport them to the venue of your National Cupcake Week event.
For safe transportation and attractive display, the Sweetly Does It Decorative Wire Cupcake Carrier makes for an ideal way to carry your creations.
We have an extensive selection of cupcake stands to choose from, perfect for showing off your sugary delights.
If you’re taking part in National Cupcake Week, we hope you have lots of fun baking and raising money for charity – and if you’ve entered the competition, we wish you the best of luck!
