Welcome to Afternoon Crumbs!
I have always thought that every occasion and every day is better with cake!
At our shop in Claygate, Surrey I make cupcakes which are available to buy from our counter Thursday to Saturday. I also make cakes and cupcakes to order for occasions such as birthdays, weddings, anniversaries or just an everyday treat! We also have cards and gift products to buy, all inspired by our bakes.
All our cakes are handmade by me, Nicole, in the kitchen at our shop.
I’m Nicole, the owner and cake maker at Afternoon Crumbs. I have a passion for spreading happiness through the things I bake.
I grew up being inspired watching my mum and grandmother bake and so many of my memories include elaborate homemade birthday cakes. I really got into baking myself though at Uni when I had A LOT of spare time on my hands!
After I graduated I continued to bake and blog about my creations. I also took a number of courses and did an amazing internship with Zoe Clark at The Cake Parlour.
In November 2016 I opened Afternoon Crumbs, the shop, on The Parade in Claygate. I love that it allows me to meet so many lovely people help you celebrate the everyday and those bigger occasions.
My Favourite Cupcake Flavours: Chocolate Salted Caramel is my all time fave! Apple Crumble, Snickers and Chocolate Chip Cookie are high up on the list too!
My Favourite Cake Flavour: A classic Victoria Sponge…or carrot, or coffee!
Afternoon Crumbs isn’t just me – my amazing sister Lauren is my other half on this cake journey. She’s the friendly face you see behind the counter each day and runs the business side of things (she loves a spreadsheet!).
Lauren studied Psychology and then spent 5½ years at an online marketing company before joining me to help open the shop!
