Colour Chart Now Available

I have colour charts for our cupcake liners should you need to special order for your wedding. When we book a wedding we ask that the bride order 500 liners so that all incidents can be avoided. We also ask these bookings occur 3 weeks in advance because your liners have to be made and perfected. We would never send out off center cuppie cake liners.
Our solids go like this

We then have a wonderful splash of polka dot designs. They are just so fun! The minis are soooooo cute!

At present we do not have the brown and gold dots, pink and gold dots or black and silver dots. Hopefully they will be available soon!
Our High Tea is out of this world and is perfect for so many settings. Even the spookier celebrations. Creativity counts here folks.

And finally my personal fave of all time HOUNDSTOOTH!The hot pink and camel colours are not yet available but hopefully very soon!

As many of you know I carry quite a few sizes of liners and can get my hands on pretty much any size you can throw at me. The important size measurement of course is the bottom one! Turn your pan upside down and measure the bottom straight across the circle. Most are 2" BUT a nice professional yielding pan will give you a 2 1/4" bottom. My minis are a gorgeous size because they are not too small they are 1 1/2" across the bottom. Not as finicky as those #36 that are 7/8".
Size 39 is 1 1/4" bottom
Size 55 is 2" bottom standard wilton type size but MUCH better quality
Size 70 is a 2 1/4" bottom professional muffin pan
Size 75 is 2 1/4" bottom but taller so you get MORE CAKE!!
Now you can head over to the cupcake link and stock up for your holiday baking!
