I set up Charmaine's Cupcakes in October 2010, within the first year I had created a trademarked product the Cup-O-Cake which gave my small family-run business a massive boost. We pitched our Cup-O-Cake to Virgin Media and won the opportunity to showcase in their VIP Loucder Lounge at the 2011 V Festival. We have since become preferred suppliers for Virgin Media and have attended some high profiles events with our goodies including the Short Film Awards, MADE festival, Britains Got Talent and at the Royal Opera House.
We redesigned the business earlier this year to include our Candy Carts and we are now classified as a 'Sweet Catering' business.
