The big reveal – my famous cupcakes!


I teased you last week with my muffcakes post – and now it’s time for a correction and the big reveal.

First the big reveal – as you can see from the picture, my muffins are the new face of… Lurpak butter! They now refuse to get out of the oven for less than $10,000 :)  Well, to be pedantic, they are one of the four new faces of Lurpak in its new 2010 outdoor media campaign, together with a lemon meringue pie, Helen’s chicken pie, and Mary-Rose’s roast chicken.  I believe there are two roadside billboards featuring my white chocolate and raspberry cupcakes quite close to my house, but have not been able to get there in daylight hours yet to get photographic evidence of my cupcakes’s new-found fame.  If anbody else spots them on a billboard or poster around town, could you pretty please send me a snap?  Would be wounderful to have a little scrapbook of them.  For when the cupcakes have all grown up and left home, you know 😉

And then the correction: after the initial Pdfs that I was sent showed pictures of my cupcakes together with a recipe for my muffins, the confusion has now all been cleared up and it is indeed the cupcake recipe that is now being distributed to accompany the cupcake pictures.  Hurrah! Confused muffcakes no more!

** UPDATE! **

For your viewing pleasure, here are some pics of my muffin billboards around London!

Woohoo! Shopping at food market, I look up & see Jeanne's pho... on Twitpic

This one was spotted in West London by the ever-fabulous Mowie of Mowielicious.


I snapped this one on the Royal Docks Road in East London near my house (Nick had to pull over into a disused off-ramp – the joys of being married to a food blogger!).


This one is on the way to the eastbound Circle/Metropolitan/Hammersmith & City lines in the Liverpool Street Tube station.  That’s a normal size dorr next to it, to give you an idea of the scale.


And this one is at the top of the Central Line escalators at Liverpool Street Tube Station – every time I walk past it on my way home I feel like pinching my cupcakes’ cheeks and kissing them goodnight 😉

    JEANNE!!! There’s a MASSIVE billboard of this down the road from me, I saw it on the bus last night on my way home and I was shouting at the top of my lungs: ‘That’s Jeanne! That’s Jeanne! Stop the bus!’ =)
    Like with you, it was dark outside, and I’d already planned to head over there on the weekend to take a pic, hoping to surprise you before you could post about it! xxx

    Yaay! That’s wonderful news;we don’t have billboards near our house, and I thought it was a good thing; but now I wish otherwise. Do show us a picture when you manage to get one. Congratulations, dear Jeanne :-)

  3. says

    WOWEE! Here’s a hearty slap on the back, a big tight hug and a high five all in one! That is fabulous!!!! I wish I lived next to one of your billboards! Congratulations. She’s not just only hot she’s gooood too.

    I am sure you can consider yourself a one off – great to know why you had to make muffcakes of different sizes – wish I was in the uk to see the advert and feel proud to know it was from a fellow blogger

  5. says

    wow, that’s too cool :)
    And that fame’s totally desreved too 😀 just make sure they don’t end up in a bad company shacking up with Paris Hilton, wearing no knickers and doing drugs 😀

    Oh congratulations Jeanne! That’s fantastic news. I was looking at the Lurpak ad of these muffins at my tube station the other day and wondering who made them as they look so heartwarming and absolutely to die for. Every time I leave to get the tube, I’ll be seeing it and thinking I’m lucky to know someone famous! 😀 WOOHOOO. x

    How exciting! I’d be running all over town with my camera…. Who needs a day job with that. Congratulations (although I was looking forward to the muffcakes)

  8. says

    Congratulations – these look fab. I spotted the billboard yesterday morning on the way to work and it made me hungry for cake!
    I’ll take some pics of the ones I spot – there’s one near Waterloo and another on the Old Kent Road which means your cakes are making lots of commuters very hungry!

  9. says

    Ahhh this is HUGE!! Billboard HUGE!! I always knew you and your cupcakes were headed for big things! 😉 Congratulations gorgeous! xxx

    CONGRATULATIONS Jeanne..fabulous. I had a chance to stop by Helen’s blog & check out her Chicken Pie. This is just great! I L♥V it!! Mowie just tweeted a picture of your muffins…
    (he he…just one more reason you should be on twitter)

    I first tried this product when visiting in Portland and mistakenly assumed this product left my hair so nice-to-the-touch because the Oregon water was so soft. Not so. Using it in my own hometown, I
    have had the same results — soft, natural curls. Too many styling products on the market leave hair stiff and crinkly. Moroccan Oil Intense Curl Cream is well worth the cost. Be advised that only a
    dime-size amount is necessary to great results
