Whether you’re after something for a special event or just fancy treating yourself, Hampshire has a number of fantastic cupcake producers and shops you should consider

Cupcakes”mmm”Cookies

Southampton, 07905 482483

As you can tell from the name, they don’t just specialise in cupcakes, but we’ll leave the cookies for another day! Located in Southampton, Cupcakes”mmm”Cookies provide for a number special occasions such as weddings, birthdays and Christenings. Cakes are individually designed based on customer needs. You’ll also find them regularly at markets during weekends across Hampshire.

The Tea Cosy

The Dene, Hurstbourne Tarrant, 01264 736644

We’ve featured The Tea Cosy on our site before when we rounded up some of the best afternoon tea in Hampshire and they’ve made the list this time too. Situated on the Test they are an ideal refreshment point for walkers and cyclists alike. Rather than us describing their cupcakes to you, why not head over to their photo page on Facebook and see for yourself (along with the other cakes and refreshments on offer)?!

Wow Cupcakes

Southampton, 07954 820842

The team at Wow Cupcakes produce freshly baked cakes for weddings, anniversaries, corporate events and birthdays, using local ingredients whenever possible.

CupCake Central

Tadley, 07833 432741

You only have to look at their feedback to know CupCake Central in Tadley are worthy of a place on this list. Whatever the special event, they’ve got you covered and with flavours such as Fererro Rocher, pick ’n’ mix and lemon meringue on offer, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Emma, who runs CupCake Central, also produces giant cupcakes that can be decorated in a variety of themes.

The Parlour Tea Room

The Granary Viables Craft Centre, RG22 4BJ, 01256 325795

The Parlour Tea Room don’t just specialise in cupcakes, but they are certainly a great place to go for one (or three). That is surely backed up by the fact they were voted by our readers as a winner of Tea/Coffee Shop of the Year at the 2014 Hampshire Life Food & Drink Awards!
