They Bake Up to 800 Cupcakes a Week by Themselves!

Cool story from the Hampstead and Highgate Express in London--Lifestyle: Selling like Hot Cakes

PRIMROSE Hill mums Martha Swift and Lisa Thomas can often be found whipping up a Victoria sponge at midnight.
  The two friends are not only domestic goddesses but savvy businesswomen, who run a cake-making business from their own kitchens.
  In just nine months, Primrose Bakery has supplied its pretty cup cakes and sponges to a range of clients - from a Kate Moss modelling shoot to the crew for rock band U2.
  Martha, 36, and Lisa, 38, met when their eldest children were pupils at St Mark's nursery in St Mark's Square.

    I think you will find that this story is not quite true. They actually advertised for a pastry chef and he helps them to bake.
    If you search under primose hill bakery and pastry chef you will see.

    We are looking for a full time chef to bake cakes and cupcakes in a small but highly successful business in Primrose Hill selling directly to the public and supplying several prestigious food shops. You must speak good English and have some experience in cooking, although training will be given. You must also be able to work weekends, early mornings and some bank holidays. These cakes rely on their quality and the care taken in making them so you must enjoy paying attention to detail.
    Immediate start available. Pay £6.50 per hour.
