It was really lovely to be sent a photo of how they looked as part of the beautiful display, and we really hope everyone enjoyed demolishing it!

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!

New and improved original recipe website

We are delighted to announce that after a lot of typing, many cups of tea, and even more banging of heads against keyboards, the new Eponine website is ready for launch! We’ve designed it to look similar to the old website, but better looking and with more features and content.

You can still find a list of our upcoming market events on the homepage, where you can now also sign up to our mailing list to receive event and product news, updates and special offers.

We’ve also done a bit of restructuring of the menus to bring you more information about our bespoke wedding services, including luxury chocolate wedding favours and couture wedding cakes.




Hope you enjoy checking out and using the new website, but please remember that we are patissiers not web developers, so if you find a bug or broken link please let us know! Of course if it’s the greatest website you’ve ever seen and you would like to compliment us on our patisserie-based-web-design-studio-not-at-all-made-on-my-laptop-at-2am endeavours, please leave a comment below!
