The staff here are really nice and very helpful you can tell it's a family business. They have a huge selection of delicious cupcakes, cakes and even some gluten free options! The prices here are slightly more expensive than chain coffee shops, but definitely much better quality. I bought a box of twelve cupcakes and they did their best and... More

I ordered a range of cupcakes from this lovely little bakery for an afternoon tea event and was extremely happy with my order. Beautifully made mini cupcakes with violet and red sugar flowers looked and tasted great. My order was well packed in sturdy boxes which meant that all items made it home intact. Will definitely use this bakery again.

It is a lovely treat going in here, but buying 3 cup cakes and a very thin slice of chocolate fudge cake cost me over £13, so it is only on high days and holidays sort of treat.

Hi Minxy66, thank you for your review. Unfortunately I think there seems to have been some problem with your receipt. The most expensive cupcakes we sell are our Luxury cupcakes which are £2.25 each and a slice of our Belgisn Chocolate Layer Cake (we don't sell chocolate fudge cake) is £3.25. The total for your bill should only have been... More

I think most people enjoy the odd `sweet treat` but this place will get you addicted! There are many such bakeries offering the same product,but HUMBLE PIE is `simply the best`!.

Description
Susan Brown opened Humble Pie Bakery Ltd in 2010. After thirty years as a teacher and thirteen years after first visiting the then fledgeling Magnolia Bakery in Manhattan she took the plunge with her first commercial venture which has been enthusiastically received, and to much critical acclaim, by fans of traditional baking. Susan's aim is to make cupcakes that taste as delicious as they look beautiful. The recipes are her own, developed and refined over the years - her cakes and butter cream are lighter and less sugary than the American equivalents and more suited to the UK palette. In only its second year of business, Humble Pie won the Regional and National Gold Award for 'Best Individual Cake in Scotland' at the 2012 Scottish Baker of the Year Awards, a competition voted for by customers and judged by a panel of master bakers. Unlike many of the current proliferation of 'virtual' cupcake businesses, Humble Pie is a real micro bakery and cake shop located in Bothwell, on the outskirts of Glasgow. At our stylish shop you can see and sample our cakes before ordering or just treat yourself to one of our cupcakes for fun, accompanied by one of our speciality hot beverages - we serve Tazo Teas, Nespresso Coffees and Spanish Hot Chocolate. Our cakes are baked fresh on site daily and have proved to be so popular we regularly sell out by the end of the day. We would be delighted to work with you to produce bespoke, hand crafted cakes for your special occasion, be it a wedding, christening or kids' party. Email Susan and book an appointment to come in and discuss your requirements. Our aim is to exceed your expectations and grow our network of delighted clients. Why not come and join us on Facebook.
