The Early Days
Back in 2010, whilst I was at uni (Charlie) and Ryan was working as a chef, we started baking
delicious cupcakes at home and selling them on local markets, we were known as “Get Cupcaked”.
As the name suggests… we didn’t take ourselves very seriously and honestly and honestly didn’t
expect it to last long as we were experimenting with what we wanted to do with our lives! But we
got that wrong! Get Cupcaked became so popular that we quit our full-time jobs and were booking
ourselves in to markets and events every weekend. Just a few cupcakes baked from home sat on a
cute table cloth and away we went
Over the years, our product range soon diversified in to many more treats. Which led us to a rebrand and a name change….. we also started to take ourselves a
little bit more seriously……..Just a little bit ;P.
“Get Cupcaked” transformed in to Big Bakes Bakery.
The name Big Bakes came to us as so many customers commented on how ‘big’ our bakes were….we were baking up ‘Big Bakes’ all along.
We Just Couldn’t Stop Baking
We have worked hard to create our own unique recipes that combine the best ingredients just
perfectly to make our oversized treats! and lets face it, “Bigger is always better, with Big Bakes”!
We are also a familiar face on the food festival scene in the south west, we try to attend as many
events as possible to spread the big bakes love, from Cornwall to Manchester, we spread are wings
far and wide.
Then The Shop
With lots and lots of hard work at food festivals and events (and cake eating!), we opened our first
shop, located in our home town of Torquay, Devon in 2017.
This was a huge milestone for us and was honestly one of the most exciting (and stressful!)
experiences of our business life so far and we our incredibly proud.
We work extremely hard to be able to offer freshly baked goods in our shop window each day and
now offer a postal service across the UK. We have put on our oven mitts and are taking on the
baking world one cake at a time.
