The Viney Agency


Donna EganDonna Egan founded the Buttercup Cake Shop, London’s first cupcakery, in 2006.  Its original location in London’s Kensington was soon joined by two outlets: in Westfield London and Kent, making Buttercup the first London cupcake-seller to infiltrate the heart of England, residence to many avid home bakers.  In 2011, Buttercup opened its fourth outlet on the site of the UK 2012 Olympics in the new Westfield Stratford City – the largest shopping centre in Europe.  Buttercup has been recognised across the press by titles including Time Out, Metro, Daily Mail, Financial Times, Conde Nast’s Brides and British Barker as well as being featured on Rachel Allen’s TV show, Bake. 

Buttercup began selling ice cream sandwiches and cupshakes in spring 2011.  They proved instantly popular to customers of all ages and became the impetus for writing her book on this brand new baking trend.

Donna combines a corporate background in consumer marketing with her role as a mum who bakes.  Originally from California, she has lived in London for 12 years, as well as previously having lived and worked in Mexico and France.  Today she lives in Souht London with her husband and two daughters, who also love to bake.
