POP Bakery started early 2010 in my parents house in West Hampstead London. Me (Clare) and my mum (Judith) began with a very simple cake on a stick but were soon making intricate Russian dolls and leopard print designs. They were instantly very popular with magazines and blogs- a personal highlight for me was having our perfume cake POPs featured in a 5 page feature in British Vogue and of course my TV appearance on Paul Hollywood's Pies and Puds.
We went from strength to strength with our little cake pop cottage industry and I even created our new range of edible paint POP Paint in my childhood home. However with boxes under every bed in the house and polystyrene climbing the walls of my parents 'walk-in-wardrobe' we soon outgrew my childhood home and I had to start looking for a new base for POP Bakery.
I found our little shop in Queens Park in 2015 and have so enjoyed creating a little home for all things POP! The shop is our kitchen space, office space and retail in the front- as lovely as it was being in my parents house it's been wonderful to finally have a space solely for POP Bakery. Since moving in we've trialled a lot of business ideas from POP Parties to tiered wedding cakes but are now flat out doing what we love most- making POPs! Our team is ever growing and we are excited for the future launching on new platforms and partnering with brands.
