My Cupcake Toppers are enjoying sweet success since they moved into our Grovewood Business Centre in Bellshill in 2015.

Established as an at-home bakery, the decorative and edible cake-topper firm made Grovewood Business centre its home in 2017 when they just didn’t have the space to grow. Since moving, they’ve seen an incredible increase on annual turnover year-on-year by 20-50%, with clients now all over the world.

From our unit space/workshop, My Cupcake Toppers create toppers for pies, cocktails and much more. Top clients even include Manchester United FC, Michelin-starred chef, Tom Kerridge, Britvic and Halo Top.

"Delivering products to customers across the world is a key part of our business model. Thanks to UKSE, the growth we’ve experienced in the last few years has been incredible."
Anna Kennedy, Owner

How we did it.

Finding us through their local Business Gateway, we knew our premises were a perfect fit. We could offer space for increased staff numbers and were located in a convenient location for them to travel to and from Lanarkshire and Glasgow.

My Cupcake toppers also benefitted from our dedicated postal service, speeding up the process of getting their creations to their customers. No more dreaded hours in the post office.

Plus having access to their premises any time of the day and our easy in, easy out policy, means that Cupcake Toppers are never stuck in the office whilst being stuck with a long lease.

With their quirky designs and logo-printing services, and our support, we’re proud to see My Cupcake Toppers are going from strength to strength.

The results.
