Baker opens up boozy cupcake business

Mobile bakery Eat Me Ltd has launched an innovative way of mixing alcoholic ingredients and cakes to make cocktail-flavoured cupcakes.

Lesley Henderson, who came up with the business idea, is aiming to open up a shop in Edinburgh, Scotland, but is currently baking the cakes from her home and delivers all around the UK, while she finds a premises.

Using just two units of alcohol per 12 cakes, her treats are individually handmade and can be made stronger if requested.

Cake creations include: ‘Follow the White Rabbit’, made from Feeney’s Irish Cream, Kahlúa and milk, and ‘Cheshire Cat’, a cupcake containing a mixture of NB Vodka, triple sec and cranberry juice, based on a traditional Cosmopolitan.

Henderson told Herald Scotland: “I’ve always loved baking cakes and drinking cocktails, so I decided to mix the two together and create my own business.

She added: “It was an idea both myself and my partner Brian came up with and, so far, it’s proving to be quite popular.”

Henderson revealed that once she has secured a premises, she plans to run the business full-time in Edinburgh.

In July, Lakeland released two new frosting flavours – prosecco and gin & tonic.
