LIFESTYLE: Wilma’s Cupcakery

I am so excited to tell you all about Wilma’s Bakery which has newly opened in my local town of Leigh-On-Sea.

Their beautiful shop (complete with flower wall and ceiling installation) is located in Clements Arcade in the heart of Leigh Broadway. Their flavours and creations are extensive and you can even watch whilst they get creative. Stay a while for a gourmet hot chocolate creation or grab a coffee and cake to go.

Wilma’s are known for creating ‘non traditional’  quirky, unique one-off cakes for all occasions whether it be corporate or private.

If you’re not in Essex, Kent or London – you can relax. Wilma’s beautiful creations do venture further afield in the one and only mobile cake & coffee trailer named ‘Cakey McCakeface’. Cakey McCakeface has been known to attend festivals, weddings and corporate events all over England with gloriously tasty, bespoke cupcakes as well as overly impressive occasion cakes, afternoon teas & dessert drinks.

Wilma’s only uses free range eggs and understands the seriousness of dietary requirements, as such if you’d like a gluten free or vegan creation – it’s not a problem. Oh and did I mention that they are dog friendly and make cupcakes for your furry ones too!

You can see from my photos how stunning their cakes are and I can honestly say they taste divine! Some of the flavours I’ve tried are chocolate salted caramel, candyfloss, bubblegum and coconut. I can’t wait to go back for more! Keep your eyes peeled as Wilma’s are making my daughter some special cupcakes for her birthday too. A must visit and makes a welcome change to the regular chain coffee shops.
