If I see another mince pie….

For our first blog post of 2015, we would like to wish you all a Happy New Year and thank everyone who shopped with us over the Christmas period – we hope everyone enjoyed their presents!

We’ve had a bit of a break after the Christmas rush to recover from a month of manic mince pie baking, sell out markets and lots of ribbon tying! There were also some very unique private orders, from bespoke gifts made entirely of chocolate, to our first ever doughnut wedding tower:
