The blog has moved to…. Crumbs and Corkscrews!

Crumbs and Corkscrews

This is just a quick post to say that I’ve now moved the blog to my main blog – Crumbs and Corkscrews. The summer has been so hectic since I moved back to work from home, and I’ve not had chance to post on here, so it makes sense to put the two blogs towards. You can find me at all the usual places…..

Home Sweet Home

The kitchen over the last couple of months has been busy with cakes for all sorts of celebrations. On the weekends, we often have people pop into the shop to pick up a selection of cakes to take as a house warming gift; so we don’t often create bespoke cupcakes for a new home. However, we were contacted back at the end of January, to create a selection box for a lady’s friends who had moved to the Cotswolds. We were asked to put together a mix of signature and bespoke cupcakes. There’s a first time for everything, even after two years!

We choose a mixture of classic vanilla and chocolate, and we were asked to pop in some white chocolate, and strawberry milkshake flavours too. I think the colours looked great together and I was really pleased with how the handmade decorations worked out. I loved the colours and so did the family who they were for and the lady who ordered them!

Wow – they look amazing! Thank-you so much. My friend had sent me a photo, but I couldn’t see the detail as much. They thought the cakes were absolutely wonderful too!

We hope that the family love the Cotswolds as much as we do!
