Oh man, don’t you just love cake? When an invite for a wee launch party at Snuggle Muffin arrived in my inbox recently I was a little bit gutted as I’d already RSVP’d to another event on the same night (the busy life of a blogger, eh?! More on the other event next week!). But never fear, the stars aligned and I managed to pop along to both events for a wee bit, got my sugar fix and well and truly ditched the diet for the evening. Located at 120 George Street, just a short stroll away from Queen Street Station, Snuggle Muffin is perfectly located in the centre of Glasgow and is the perfect spot for afternoon tea and gorging on cupcakes.
Snuggle Muffin is a cute wee cake shop/cafe with a 50s diner kinda feel to it – think frothy milkshakes, fluffy pancakes and perfectly iced cupcakes with cherries on top. As well as a huge range of cakes, cupcakes and patisserie goodies, there are also sandwiches, pancakes, waffles, smoothies, milkshakes and hot drinks… basically everything you could ever want! We got to sample lots of the baking during the event and everything tasted prrrrretty amazing. Chocolate dipped shortbread? Mini raspberry tarts? Raspberry sponge cupcakes? Smores bites? Mini banoffee cupcakes? Yes please to all of the above! It was all washed down with a cocktail of course, a beaut concoction of champagne, strawberries and toasted marshmallows – will most definitely need to attempt to make this myself soon. There was even a decoration station (it RHYMES) and we all got to have a go at decorating our own cupcake; what do you think of my effort in the top photo?
Snuggle Muffin is the brainchild of 21 year old Juliane Grasekamp, who began by selling homemade cupcakes from her school locker before progressing onto taking orders for wedding cakes and now eventually being the proud owner of her very own cupcake boutique. When I was younger it was my dream to own a tearoom (even though I don’t like tea, so it was basically just for the cakes obvs) so I’m super impressed Juliane has managed to set up Snuggle Muffin by the age of just 21. The whole thing is a bit of a family effort with her mum providing the cute artwork dotted around the walls, and her dad helping to custom build the counters. It’s all got a cute and cosy feel to it, definitely the sort of place you’d want to go back to time and time again! Whenever I’m in Glasgow and in need of cake, this will definitely be my first stop.
