We are newly established, going live in September 2016. I discovered my love for baking after trying to find something a bit different to enjoy on a Saturday morning. Since that weekend, I have found a passion for baking and more specifically for cupcakes. Ironically, I don’t actually like cake, but I was lucky enough to have a chief tester or two to try them out. Alex, my partner, is the co-owner of the business and the brains behind all of the difficult stuff that I’m not very good at (see: accountant/excel spreadsheet-user). We are based in Preston and as per the business name, we make cupcakes, of all varieties for all occasions. I am the sole baker of the company and all the baking is done in our own kitchen. We provide lots of different flavours in different quantities, and we also, of course, provide vegetarian and vegan-friendly cupcakes. At the present time, we are only able to offer delivery – at a cost – within a 10 mile radius of our postcode, or collection, which is available from our address at an agreed time. Members of ALPHA 55 may place orders, but delivery to this location will be on specific dates. We are working hard on researching our delivery options, as we would love to get our cupcakes to more customers! As we prepare the cupcakes in our own home, unfortunately we cannot guarantee our products are nut free. If you do have any allergies or intolerances, please be sure to include this in your enquiry/order. Please note, we specialize mostly in flavours, meaning if you are looking for fancy fondant designs – they might be worth sourcing elsewhere. For your peace of mind, we have a food rating of FIVE. Check out our Instagram account for lots of photographs of our cupcakes (@nics.cupcakes) and have a look at our menu to see if anything takes your fancy. Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any questions, using the contact details provided. We look forward to hearing from you!


For those who do not consume animal products.

Vegetarian and vegan friendly cupcakes;
Please be sure to state this in your order, as not all of our standard recipes are vegetarian/vegan friendly.


You can even customize your order.

Want a vanilla sponge, but with blue bubblegum buttercream and a bubblegum-infused white chocolate filling in the middle of it? What about a red, raspberry flavoured sponge but with lemon buttercream and topped with sour orange sweets? With our customize your own cupcake option, you are free to choose whatever you wish. Choose the flavour and colours of your sponge, your buttercream or icing, have a filling of your choice in the middle of it, add the toppings you desire. Please contact us directly with your ideas, so that we can provide you with a quote.
