National Cupcake Champion Emily Johnson has said sales of her award-winning Mojito Cupcake have increased by 50% since winning the title.
The owner of Upsy Daisy Bakery in Hammersmith, London, who won the accolade back in July for her cocktail-inspired recipe, showed British Baker how to make the winning cupcake recipe.
Johnson said: "Everyone just wants to try the Mojito Cupcake, there’s not a day where we haven’t completly sold out of them or had a call for an order for them for a particular occasion."
She added that the bakery has a dedicated cocktail range to maximise on the alcoholic cupcake trend. It features flavours inspired by cocktails such as Pimms and Pina Colada.
Upsy Daisy Bakery has recently celebrated its second birthday and serves a range of 30 cupcake flavours, as well as creating afternoon teas, breakfasts and brunches from its bakery and tea room on King Street in West London. It is is run by Johnson and her partner Matthew, with a team of seven employees currently working at the business.
