» Listings for May 2010

  1. Well, I have made up the lady's sock cupcakes and they are a success!  It took a while to work out how to roll the socks so they would fit in the cupcake cases perfectly and I managed to get some pretty pastel silicone cupcake cases which I lined with tissue paper.  The cakes were topped with a bath pearl.

    I will take them to the Market at Barford St Michael on saturday to see how well they will sell.  I have also ordered some single and twin cupcake boxes and I will sell them at £2.99 each or £5.50 for two.

  2. In time for the Hook Norton Market, I have baked up some single tier hand towel cakes.  They contain one scented pillar candle and are decorated with Silk Flowers.  I love the chocolate orange one, it is really striking looking.

    I have packed them in a rigid cardboard cake box, which help with the transportation of the cakes but adds value to the price of the cakes.  I am thinking about getting some clear gateaux domes to see whether that will help.

    I am also thinking about re-designing the ladies socks bouquets and tranforming them in to sock cupcakes......watch this space.....
     
     
  3. I have decided that since researching fat free cakes and items for the blog that I have found so many lovely websites and other handmade items that I am going to rename the website "My Christmas Wish List"!
     
    Jokes aside, I have just found another shop on Folksy who also make cakes and Biscuits out of felt, crochet and knitting "a menagerie of handcrafted sweetness" and I adore the Patisserie set, the Sushi boxes and the detailing on the Custard Creams!
     
     
    I have just been out to buy the ingredients for a new pamper cake so watch this space!
  4. Apologies to any visitors to the Swerford Market.  Unfortunately I was let down by my helper who was unable to attend in my absence. 
     
    However, I am pleased to confirm that I will definately be at Hook Norton Market on Saturday 8th May 2010 with the Fat Free Cakes and also other small gifts, including handbags, scarves and bracelets.
