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 sponges and butter cream are lighter and less sugary than the American equivalents and more suited to the UK palette.  

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 satisfying hot beverages - we serve Italian blend Coffee, speciality Teas and delicious Cadbury's 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.
