Cupcakes by Katie is a family business, founded by Kay Weldon, and it was Kay herself that we met in her Tea Rooms (next to Malone’s Bar on the Blarney by-pass) last Saturday.
We really enjoyed our coffee and cup cakes and a wide ranging chat with herself, ranging from picking blackberries to the good old days and also including the All-Ireland final. The few minutes we’d scheduled for the cuppa stretched pleasantly, not least because the cup cakes were gorgeous.
She does them in many flavours and in a few sizes: mini, large and giant and you may also order specials like Black Forrest Gateaux and Banoffee and Wedding Cupcakes (of which she had a few on display last Saturday).
Now you know where to go if you are in the Blarney area and need a cuppa and cake and maybe a pleasant conversation as well. We certainly enjoyed it and purchased a box of cakes on our way out.
