Taylor Swift received 23 cupcakes from Harry Styles for her 23rd birthday.

The blonde beauty celebrated her birthday on Thursday (13.12.12) with her new boyfriend by tucking into sweet treats that the One Direction hunk had ordered from Chapelford Village's Custom Cupcake Company in Cheshire, North West England.

Matt Blakely, the company's co-owner, revealed to E! News: ''A lady called us asking if we could supply some cupcakes. I told her we were busting at the seams because of the holidays. She said it was for Harry Styles, and I said, 'Oh, OK, cool. Send him along.'

''Later, I got a phone call from my wife that Harry Styles was standing on the doorstep. I didn't think he would come to pick them up.''

The loved-up couple then enjoyed a drive through the picturesque English countryside and finished off Taylor's special day with a romantic meal at the George & Dragon Pub in Great Budworth village.

Harry, 18, had taken his girlfriend on a mini-break to the Lake District earlier this week to meet his family and indulge in some Christmas shopping in Bowness-on-Windermere in Cumbria, North West England.

Onlooker Claire Dibbs was shocked to see the famous pair in the small town, revealing: ''I was hyperventilating, I just never expected to see them. She introduced herself, she was really lovely. She said they were just here for the day and I think they were there with his parents. Taylor said they were leaving soon.

''Taylor had a lot of bags from Beatrix Potter world - I saw some cuddly toys poking out of the top of the bag. They'd done a lot of shopping. Taylor said she loved the area and said it was really pretty.''
