    I wish I could visit your shop and work for you one day!I made a purple ombre unicorn cake inspired by your videos but was definitely lacking in equipment – heading over to  your website now!!! <3

  2. Sidra Khan says:

    I am watching old videos as jeMma is being missed

  3. Nabisa Bevee says:

    Hi, Sally can I put vanilla extract instead because I am not fan of spices

  4. Kay Grindell Scarlett says:

    Sally is a GREAT subsritute for Jemma, a very proffessional presentation

  5. Spohie says:

    Sally is doing a wonderful job filling in. I’m absolutely going to be purchasing the piping sets. They are really reasonably priced for what they are. I was just looking for a set for my niece who’s just started baking. I’m pointed her in the direction that f this channel for inspiration

  6. Reehana Taj says:

    Thank you for the video! Can't wait to try these. I don't like the taste of syrup, so i might make 2 seperate batches, one with honey, the other with syrup.

  7. Sorcha Clancy says:

    Absolutely loving these Sally videos!! Hope you do more, even when Jemma is well enough to come back – you're both so great at explaining the recipes and everything you make looks SO good! (I use so many cupcake Jemma recipes 🙂 practically a brand ambassador for you guys at this point! Haha)

    I would legitimately watch every video Sally makes if she starts her own YouTube. She's wonderful.

  10. karen english says:

    These look yum love your videos keep up the great work Gemma has a great team happy Christmas to you all xx

  11. Dimitris Garidis says:

    just right after we take the cupcakes out of the oven can we spray them with a little brandy? would this add something more to their flavour?

  12. Nancy Alfaro says:

    These look delicious and one I will want to give a try! Sally, you are so much more comfortable in front of camera now, explain everything thoroughly and love your sweet personality!! You are doing a fantastic job. Thanks for tasting at end and showing bitten cupcake too. Merry Christmas to the entire C&D team! Jemma, we miss you too and hope you are continuing to feel better each day.

  13. Violet Raton says:

  14. JJ T says:

    Noticed the website doesn't accept USD currency. Am I doing something wrong?

  15. Natasha Sheppard says:

    Gemma we need your cake shop here in Devon 🧁🧁🧁

  16. Celine Ertzinger says:

  21. Mich W says:

    I'm so making these over Christmas, am I going to be popular or what 😁👍

  22. Ashwini kumari b says:

    Hi Sally, If i use the honey, should i reduce the quantity of brown sugar added to compensate for the extra sweetness honey adds?

  23. Ana Ybarra says:

    Merry Christmas Jemma!!! I'm happy to hear that you are getting better! I LOVE this new cupcake recipe by the way. Hope you have a wonderful christmas!

  24. Laura Murphy says:

    Just made these today! They taste awesome but in the oven the cupcakes exploded and then totally collapsed by the time they were done cooking. Any advice?

  25. Susan Dempsey says:

    Sally is wonderful….so competent and efficient!

  26. nahla gamal says:

    You talk too much

  27. Stuart Mayes says:

    Sally is so charming and engaging – a real natural on camera too!
    And thank you for encouraging people to get a re-useable piping bag – great bakes shouldn't cost the earth!
    Wishing all the C&D team a fantastic 2020!

  28. Chin Krisbe says:

  32. Renee RN says:

    Sally love the video you are great! Made these cupcakes, flavor profile is great but all that corn syrup made for a disgusting cake consistency, would love to get my hands on golden syrup! I am going to try these again using a regular spice cake recipe…

  33. Halima Khanom says:

    Hi Sally. You & jemma are absolutely amazing. I love watching your videos. I just wanted to ask if you have a link for your salted caramel recipe that you sell at C & D's. I'd love to try it out only because I dont normally like spices n orange flavour's on my cupcakes. Thanks sally

  34. MooseAss says:

    Oh my goodness she looked so happy making these and now I want to make them!
