the bake-a-boo fairies!

We are currently closed during the festive period, as it is such a quiet time for us on our hideaway street! But in the mean time the bake-a-boo fairies are looking after the shop for us. They are all pretty special to me, in fact the first fairy here has been with us since day one, she was a gift when we opened the shop and has hung from the chandelier ever since, although she did tragically loose her legs, she lost none of her power......and yes I do believe in fairies! Happy new year everybody from us and them x

pretty postcards

This is a gorgeous photo that my very talented sister took of some of our mini cupcakes. She always takes beautful photos, not just of our cakes, but of everything. She captures many precious moments through her lense and I only wish I could take photographs like her, but I make cakes and that's my thing I guess?

Anyway I am telling you this as we are now selling this image on postacrds in the shop, and hopefully many more.

In the meantime, please check out my sister's Etsy shop where she is selling some of her wonderful postcards here

Cakes, Prizes and Christmas fairs....

Catch me this Saturday afternoon at the Beckford school Christmas fair, where I will be judging the cake competition! How funny is that?! Beckford school is one of my favourite places in the world and somewhere that is very close to my heart (as well as being very close to my shop) many of our lovely customers are Beckford mummies (and daddies), but also I used to be a pupil there, and both my first and last days at Beckford are still vivid memories, and I can honestly say that I had the most fabulous time there, even though it was school, and I guess that's saying something!! I judged the competition last year and took my sidekick Leon (our sconemaster) along to help me, and we found it so hard to choose the winners.

Happy baking to all the kids and mummies who are involved - good luck!! xxx

ps. It's also Emmanuel school's (also on Mill Lane) Christmas fair on Saturday, and we have donated prizes to both fairs, so we look forward to seeing the winners at bake-a-boo soon x
