» Listings for 2011

  1. Well, that is another year over!  Thank you to all my customers, friends and family for their support this year and I hope to see you in the new year.
     
    I will hopefully be making some new cakes and goodies in the early part of next year.  Orders will be still be gratefully received for those special occasions.  I will post the new cakes on here as soon as they become available.
     
    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!
  2. Due to the large number of Craft Fairs and Shopping Events we are attending this year (2011) we can not guarantee that certain items are always in stock and may not be able to find time to restock or get to the post office.  So we have made the difficult decision to temporarily close the shop until the new year.
     
    Please do check out our Events page though and come along to one of the many events we are attending and purchase items there.  If you have an urgent request, please drop us an email and we will see what we can do.
     
    Sorry for any inconvenience, but we hope to see you at an event very soon!
  3. I have made it my mission this year to buy the majority of my christmas presents from craft fairs and from other makers and designers.  This is partly due to the fact that I will not have time to go trawling around shops for gifts but the main reason is that I want to give quality and unique items to my loved ones this year, not the same old mass produced tatt that everyone else is getting.
     
    So watch this space as I will hopefully be showing some of the items that I have found on here and you never know, something featured may just wing it's way into your stocking this year!
  4. I am now taking orders for Christmas Gateaux/Cakes. 
     
    These are one tier cakes, made from 2 hand towels, a candle and artificial Poinsettas. 
     
    They arecurrently available in the following colourways:
    Cream / White towels with Red Flowers
    Cream / White towels with White Flowers
    Hopefully they will become available in Red Towels soon!
     
    The cakes will be supplied on a board wrapped in cellophane.

    Christmas White 

    Other colours may be available upon request, however, please note that the poinsettas come in white and red only.  Price £20 + p&p.
    Do contact me for more information.
  5. I have been very busy of late with fairs and markets, which is exhausting but great.  I have met lots of lovely and inspirational people at these fairs and would like to thank them for their support and kind words.
     
    I have had a couple of orders for bespoke cakes this week, the first was for a 16 year olds girls birthday.
     
    Pink Mini Pamper
     
    It consists of a hot pink hand towel and is filled with make up and false eye lashes.  This cake costs £16.00
     
    I was also asked to make a Wedding Cake, the brief was simply white towels and pale blue ribbons/decorations.
     
    White Blue Towel Cake
     
    A similar cake would cost £32.00 and can be made up in almost any colour to order.  Please contact me if you would like a cake made up to your own specifications.
  6. Unfortunately, following the recent VAT & Postage increases, I am going to have to put up some of my prices.  I was hoping not to have to do this, but many of the suppliers of the cake "Ingredients" have been slowly putting up their prices and unfortunately to make this business worthwhile I can not retain my existing price list any longer.  I had the option of increasing the prices or using lesser quality (ie cheaper) products, which is not in my business "ethos".  The increases are not huge and the cakes still represent terrific value for money. 
     
    N.B. My Trade Prices have also had to increase - please email me for an up to date list if this affects you.
