About Heaven is a Cupcake


Hi, I’m Lucy, the creator of ‘Heaven is a Cupcake

Ever since I made my first batch of fairy cakes when I was a little girl, I have loved baking and sharing my creations. After spending several months in America surrounded by cupcakes and all things related to cupcakes; I decided to give it a go for myself and quickly became addicted. I set up ‘Heaven is a Cupcake’ in early April 2010 from my home kitchen and in 2012 I won the University of Hertfordshire’s Flare Entrepreneur of the Year Award. This enabled me to expand and convert a room in my house into my very own cake kitchen, until in January 2017 my dream came true of owning a commercial premises where we are currently based in St Albans. 

If you’re looking for something a bit different to your average cupcake or cake, you’ve come to the right place! Our cakes aren’t just delicious but they are little works of art. We make Birthday Cakes, Wedding Cakes, Baby Cakes and just good old fashioned Cakes for cravings. We aim to bring you the most delicious and exciting cakes in Hertfordshire.

We would really love to hear from YOU so please do contact us if you have any flavours you’d like to see, or stop by our facebook page to add a suggestion or see our latest creations.

We can’t wait to create your perfect cake so get in touch now!

All the best,


Heaven is a Cupcake
