Queen’s Jubilee


The Queen’s Jubilee is the icing on the cake for one Bristol business.

A Clifton cake maker has struggled to keep up with demand for her gourmet Jubilee cupcakes.Lady Pegado cakes 1

Layla Pegado, who set up Layla Pegado, has seen her business boom as orders for her cupcakes have flooded in.

“Demand is huge” she said. “Yesterday I baked 100 Jubilee themed cupcakes – today 60.”

The Brazilian-born baker says her home country has a love for all things sweet.

“In Brazil baking is huge,” she said. “We are a party country and we celebrate anything with a huge cake.”

Her baking skills were put to the test last year as a finalist on a ‘This Morning’ competition to create a new desert. She baked a traditional Brazilian cake ‘Brigaderio’ and give it a very modern twist with chocolate and passion fruit.
