Handmade cake specialists Lola’s Cupcakes are launching a collection of delicious edible gifts for the year’s Valentine’s Day including Valentine Cupcakes (regular or tiny), Valentine Cake (5”, 7” or 9”), Valentine Champagne Hamper and a Valentine Heart-Shaped Brownie Box.
The Valentine Cupcakes are available in vanilla or chocolate sponge, finished with coloured buttercream and hand-decorated in red sugar shapes and metallic icing. Lola’s cupcakes are also available gluten free.
The Valentine Cake is available in either vanilla or chocolate sponge, in five, seven and nine inches and finished with vibrant buttercream and flamboyant sugar decorations.
The Valentine Champagne Hamper includes 6 full-size Valentine cupcakes, a mini bottle of Moet Champagne and a fresh red rose, packaged into a signature baby blue Lola’s Cupcake Tin.
The Valentine Heart-Shaped Brownie Box is available in boxes of six, finished with a variety of sugar decorations, chocolate drizzle or popping candy. All of Lola’s brownies are gluten free.
Lola’s sweet treats are hand-made in North West London bakery where their team bake 364 days a year (Christmas Eve is the only day off), crafting over 10,000 cupcakes and 2,000 large cakes every week with decorators starting at 5am to ensure their 21 stores fresh receive cupcakes, cakes, brownies and cheesecakes every single day.
While delicious Lola’s range is also an extremely convenient gift for Valentine’s. Thanks to being available in three national railway stations (King’s Cross, Victoria, Waterloo) and eight underground stations (Blackfriars, Canary Wharf, Cannon Street, Chancery Lane, High Street Kensington, Leicester Square, London Bridge, Marylebone) commuters can pick up all items in the range with little deviation from their daily routes.
Lola’s can be found in five shopping centres (Bluewater, Brent Cross, Bromley The Glades and Westfield Stratford and White City) offering easy parking and late openings for last-minute dashes and the busy central London locations (Covent Garden, Selfridges, Mayfair and Oxford Street’s Topshop) are equally as convenient and early risers can take advantage of the 7am opening at Lola’s bakery in West Hampstead.
Outside London Selfridges in Birmingham offers the full Valentine’s range and then beyond that lucky gifters (or recipients) do not even need to leave their doorstep with UK-wide delivery available on their Heart-Shaped Brownie Box.

Founded in 2006 by 2 aspiring bakers who have since moved onto other projects it is now run by Father (Mario Budwig) & Son (Asher Budwig) duo who bought the company in 2011. Mario Budwig founded Millie’s Cookies in 1985 where, from a converted garage, introduced the nation to American-style cookies.
The company ethos continues the founding emphasis on providing freshness and quality and while growing still maintains made-by-hand is best. Lola’s Cupcakes currently operate 21 retail sites as well as busy online store offering UK-wide delivery for a range of baked items.
Lola’s will continue to open across London and Birmingham and grow online UK-wide offering working on new projects for 2019 like ‘Create a Cake Kit’ (customers can order cake sponges, icing, decorations to build their own Lola’s cake at home, UK-wide).
Lola’s offers a large range of free-from, vegan, gluten free products.
