We also do something special at the end of each week, we ask our facebook followers to nominate a charity or non-profit organisation who they think deserve our "End of Day Cupcakes" for the week, because The Girl on the Swing never sells a one day old cupcake. So we believe that giving them away to local deserving people who give up their time for no payment, should enjoy them. Find out more on our Facebook page.
If you would like to see more of what we offer, please visit our store at 23 Lynden Court, give us a call, follow us on Instagram and Facebook or visit us online. We are happy to give you expert advice.
Thanks for swinging by.
What makes us different
Our cupcakes are baked fresh everyday! (we never sell a day old cupcake!)
All our cakes and cupcakes are decorated in buttercream made with real butter (we don't use fondant on our cakes here at The Girl on the Swing).
We make over 50 different fudge flavours! They are gluten free, but contain dairy (as we use real butter in all our fudge flavours). Some select flavour contain gluten, for example our cookies and cream fudge and red velvet fudge to name a few.
Our mission is to also show people how easy & how much fun & fulfillment you get out of making a cake or cupcakes for the special people in your life. But for all the people "That ain't got time for that" we can make them for you!
