Christmas 2017 Cupcakes (view technical specs)

Cupcakes have become hugely popular over the years, once thought to just be a trend or phase, but now well established and respected in the cake world. The appeal of cupcakes is its versatility with the range of designs and flavours having limitless options which can stretch our imagination.

Novelty cupcakes have become a popular trend where all types of designs are being applied and are very popular for seasonal events, weddings, children’s parties and corporate events. Seasonal designs are particularly appealing and when it comes to Christmas, cake artists’ love pushing the boundaries and making unique, cute or funny designs.

The cupcakes featured on the stamps were specifically produced by a well known bakery based in Gibraltar - Piece of Cake

Piece of Cake CEO Sharon Garcia said;

"When designing these cupcakes we wanted to apply a local theme to a Christmas design. We had to create something unique to Gibraltar. Our Christmas tree had to be adapted to our Rock of Gibraltar. Our rock ape also had to feature a Christmas hat. The snowman reflects our national football team colours and emblem on his hat, symbolic of our new prominence in the football world. We also feature our beloved Pan Dulce-a cake typically enjoyed by Gibraltarians over Christmas.

This set of 6 Christmas cupcakes represents Gibraltar’s heritage, our love for the season and our particular love for all things sweet!”
