A family baker has been inundated with orders and praise after the photo of a wedding cake they created for family has gone viral around the world.

Cupcakes by SJ is based in south east London, but that hasn’t stopped people from all over the world contacting them asking to put in an order – including Texas in the United States!

“How may I order cupcakes from y’all. Would it be impossible to ship to Texas, USA?”

The picture which sparked it all is a Lego wedding cake which comes complete with a tiny Lego bride and groom and bakers and other workman rolling sheets of fondant over edible Lego bricks. The photo of this cake has now been shared over 71,000 times and liked by more than 145,000 people.

Following the influx of cake requests, SJ Cupcakes was forced to issue a statement explaining they are not professional bakers, instead they advised:

“We are a family who love to bake and create ames for family, friends & friends of friends.  We do not have a shop or webs tie or any other form of pictures other than those on this page, which was created at the request of friends purely to see what we’d been creating.  While all requests are seriously considered, I had no idea one picture would create the reaction & influx that it has in the last 2 days and am sorry that many requests are not possible to fulfil. I thank each & everyone of you for the bottom of my heart for your kind comments, likes & shares it is completely mind blowing & left my parents & I lost for words… Xx”


Their Facebook page has swelled to more than 17,000 fans with many posting words of praise to their wall:


‘You should do this as a business. Your cake are amazing they would sell so well. I would come to London to buy some of your cakes.x”

“Amazing artistry! Such a delight. Thanks for creating this page of inspiration.”
