I am thoroughly ashamed that it has been over a month since my last blog-post, okay, okay so I always say something similar…’we’ve been really busy’, ‘up the wall’, ‘no time to turn-around’….its all true I swear!! Okay so whats been happening I hear you ask, well, now you come to mention it, we have been up the wall! Since the last blog-post which was a summary of our Secret Garden cupcake workshop we have also held a full-day intensive course; ‘Flower Power’, which concentrated on (obvious maybe) ‘Flowers’ and forming beautiful flowers for adorning cupcakes!

It was a great class and there were some beautiful creations like this one (bottom) which is a fine example of ‘less is more’

 Occasionally students have a tendency to either over-load their cupcakes with decorations or run out of cupcakes and pile all the decorations they have made on to one cupcake!  But I think this is a great example of a simple but beautifully adorned cupcake made with florist paste and a silicone mould! (which are my new best friends).  Below are some other examples made by a student who, I am sure she wouldn’t mind me describing as a ‘tom-boy’, and whom produced some of the loveliest flowers I have seen for a while. I particularly like the pink one on the right hand-side!

So a successful day all round and I have since had lots of nice feedback from those who attended to say they really enjoyed their day! I am also glad to announce that we have a new venue for our courses, which will now be held at Claremont Farm on the Wirral in their professional kitchens! check out this link to their website for upcoming events and more details of our courses!

Anyways, there is more news but I have to go, but I will share with you news of our latest event at Port Sunlight Village Fayre very soon! Thanks for reading our blog!

The last time I used this display teacup was at the Christmas Fayre in December, and then it was full of cakepops! Whilst going through all my display stock recently I foolishly left it on the kitchen table only to be claimed by my lovely cat Sunnie!

He does have a habit of finding cute places to sleep, he even tried to curl up in this and go to sleep but he eventually gave up.

Luckily I only use this display item for wrapped goods and will definitely be giving it a good clean before I do! Pretty sure nobody wants cat hairs in our lovely baked goods!

We have been busy the last couple of months with both enquiries and orders and we’re hoping that February will follow suit! In fact for Valentines weekend we have a very special offer; a gift box of 6 cupcakes in 3 of our most popular flavours: Vanilla, Triple Chocolate and very lemony. Each box of cakes will be decorated with either pink or red valentines themed decorations including the personalised initial of your loved one. Each box also includes a matching bow in either pink or red, all this for only £10. For more information see the website Why give flowers when you can give the gift of cakes!

Last week we made some very nice personalised cupcakes for a 40th birthday, which also included the initial of the birthday lady, a nice bright pink letter ‘M’. The customers husband was kind enough to send me a picture of the cakes on one of our hired glass stands!

So if you are local to the Wirral and would like to give the gift of cupcakes this Valentines day drop us a line!

Hi all, been a busy weekend trying new recipes and ideas.  The first was for blueberry and white chocolate cupcakes and the second was to practise some wolf cupcakes. I am still up the wall so no time for a real blog but I am sharing some photos at least! 🙂
