Launched in August 2011, Little Treats Bakery is a very new company on the ever expanding bakery treats scene; however owner Kimberly Morton has quickly seen that personal and personable service will quickly propel you to the front of this crowded market.
Sitting in my kitchen drinking tea and eating cake I quickly felt as if this was just a catch up with one of the girls, not a business meeting. With a new career born from a serious horse riding accident that left Kim unable to work full time, this strong lady has made the very best of a bad situation and used the life change to follow her passion, and quite clearly her talent.
I was treated to a box of 6 cupcakes; 3 were Oreo cookies and cream with chocolate and vanilla buttercream. The cupcake is made from double chocolate sponge which contains Dark Belgian chocolate and crumbled pieces of Oreo cookie. The buttercream is a mix of chocolate and vanilla to give the two toned buttercream. The second 3 cupcakes were banana flavour, using fresh bananas with a caramel buttercream. The caramel is homemade and added to the buttercream before being piped on and I promise you, you really can taste the different in freshness and intenseness of flavours with all of this being homemade.
Not content with making some of the most delicious cupcakes in Essex, this savvy business woman has extend her offering to almond macaroons, cake truffles, fudge, celebration cakes, honeycomb and tarts. She is also developing her online shop stocking children’s baking kits, mixing bowls, mixing spoons, rolling pins and cookie cutters. These are all incredibly cute and practical and make excellent presents for the child that has all the toys in the catalogue already come Christmas.
The Little Treats Bakery can be found at many farmers markets all over Essex and Suffolk, including Jimmy’s Farm monthly farmers market, and are also providing cakey treats for the glamorous Essex elite at this years Essex fashion Week. This is a company on the up and, with such a charismatic and determined woman at the helm, is sure to be a raving success.
