On 26 July we did a snap vox pop asking our readers how Cupcake Heaven has impacted their baking. Here’s what they told us:

  • They bake an average of 11 recipes from each issue
  • 89% of them now bake more than they used to before they bought Cupcake Heaven
  • 86% of them have bought more bakeware and decorations than previously as a result of reading Cupcake Heaven

With Cupcake Heaven selling over 20,000 copies per issue and an average of 2.3 readers per copy sold, that’s 41,000 people baking more regularly and 39,500 readers buying more bakeware and decorations than before they started buying the magazine.
