Eclairs are something we have obsessed over since visiting Paris, where the counters of the world’s finest patisseries are lined with row after row of perfectly shaped choux pastries. Making eclairs is actually pretty easy if you don’t mind them looking a bit “homely”, but producing the perfect shape consistently is a different matter all together.

We will be indoors at West Kirby Farmer’s Market this Saturday, a very welcome change from outdoor markets in January. Along with a range of patisserie, we will be bringing some of our new range of cookies and biscuits, including chocolate and double choc cookies crammed with premium Belgian chocolate.
Christmas has come and gone, along with all the terrible Christmas songs (yay!) and our Christmas products page (boooo!). A big thank you to everyone who placed an order or purchased any Éponine products from our various outlets Continue reading New years resolution: Eat more cake!
This poor blog must be feeling pretty neglected. We’ve been too busy making mince pies… lots and lots of mince pies.

For our first official event, we will be jumping in at the deep end with a stall at the Hoylake Food Fair. Continue reading Gordon’s Alive! (and Hoylake Food Fair)
Well, we’ve started working on a few new products which we are really excited about. They are in the very early stages at the moment, but we’ll let you know more about them soon.
In the mean time, we thought we would ask people what products they actually want us Continue reading Cake or death!
Things are moving ahead slowly but surely with the development of Éponine as a real business venture. We are currently negotiating the details of a premises so we can start baking without having to beg, steal or borrow someone else’s kitchen. Sadly this won’t come with a store front, but we are working on getting ourselves into farmers markets and similar events throughout Liverpool.
If all goes to plan, things should really be taking off in the next few weeks, so we’ve started up this blog to chronicle our misadventures and keep you guys up to date with what’s going on as we get things up and running.
Here goes nothing!
