first chance to sell direct to the public was at the very first Living North Show in 2005. With great success and from there, we had an opportunity to sell at the Newcastle Quayside Sunday Market in 2007. This was when the Lottie McPhees Cupcake brand came into being and our customer base increased very quickly. We also had help from special organizations, many of whom were key in our development. The name Lottie McPhees is a collaboration of our two daughters names, Charlotte (Lottie), Pheobe (Phee) and their grandma’s middle name McClaughlin (Mc).
