The Lily Pink Bakery by Sarah Kane Photography

The Lily Pink Bakery

I can't quite believe it has been a full year since I set up my little bakery in Belfast. I can't begin to describe the satisfaction it has given me, how proud every risk I have taken has worked out  (so far, call it luck!) and how good it feels to be my own boss. How nice it feels that I sold out today of nearly 500 cupcakes at our birthday party. Most of all, I appreciate all of the smiles and the joy people get from my little cakes. Thanks so much for my best friend Sarah Kane for taking these wonderful photos. Sometimes it takes me to see myself through another person's lens to step back and realise how happy I am with my work.

  1. I am so happy for you! I remember you approaching me a year ago about the illustrations and how happy I was to do them for you :D I'm glad they are still of use to you, and if you need anything new in the future I'd love to give you a discount in exchange for being such an awesome business lady ;) xx

  11. CONGRATULATIONS CLAIRE! What a fantastic achievement and I feel so proud of you. I think it's because I've known you for a long time through various media and I know how much it means to you to have finally followed your dream (after all those years at the Coop!) I'm so desperate to try some of your cupcakes, one day in the future I hope!

  15. I am only doing blog viewing today for the first all week. i am so behind.
    thank you for the lovely credits.
    si am so super proud of you, i really am. you have done so well and behind there first hand i can attest to how seriously hard you work. i have been reccomending you to every single bride I get emails from.
    your work is the best, they look the best, they taste the best. i love cupcakes, but I am super fussy about them, so thank goodness you make the best ones I have tasted or that would be awkward.
    My best friend is a very awesome woman, oh yes she is. xoxox
