Christmas Cupcakes

The Fabulous Bakin' Boys have launched a new range of treats for the festive season.

The boxes of six cupcakes are available in either mint chocolate or orange chocolate, and we were sent some minty ones to try. Each box contains two each of milk; dark and white chocolate flavour topped cakes.

Each cake is individually wrapped so they suggest maybe popping one in your Christmas stocking - I'm sure Ruby would be more thankful of that than a satsuma or a walnut!

If you can get past the dinner lady mafia, maybe you could pop one in the lunchbox as a festive treat.

Don't get me wrong - these aren't what I'd call 'gourmet' cupcakes, but nor are they pretending to be.  They are not what I would bring out for my poshest guests, but they're worthwhile having in the cupboard for unexpected visitors who seem to drop by, and they make a welcome change from the ubiquitous mince pie.

The cupcakes are available from supermarkets nationwide.

While I've got you, can I also tell you about a cool competition the Bakin' Boys are running at the moment.  They are looking for a mini baker, so if you have a child aged under 12 years, and they have a passion for cooking, get them to enter their new cupcake suggestion here for a chance to win a trip to the bakery and see their cake being created.

Sponsored post: I received one box to sample and review however, no other reward was received.  Any views expressed are my own.


  1. We used to get FBB cakes a lot a few years ago - they are totally nut-free so a perfect alternative for my eldest who has a nut allergy.

    Mint flavoured ones will solve what to get him instead of mince pies!

  2. Hi Trashsparkle,

    Thanks for dropping by. You're right of course, and I should have mentioned it! It's not something we have to look out for, but as you say, they are baked in a nut-free zone.

    Fabulous Bakin' Boys include good info regarding allergies on their packaging. These cakes contain gluten, milk products, eggs and soya, but are nut free and have no artificial flavours or colours. They are also suitable for vegetarians. x
