Very good weekend....

So the farmers market went well at Matlock this weekend we completely sold out which is always a very good feeling although we did get moaned at for having no leftovers... men eh!

It's the first time we've taken our Chocolate caramel shortbread and Almond crunchies and they were a big hit, as always so were the Oat, raisin and chocolate biscuits.

Here's a photo of one of this weekends orders, yummy chocolate fairy cakes with milk and white chocolate sprinkles.

Now totally off the subject of cakes, my week has just got off to a really good start. I had to pop into town to pick up a few photos of our cakes for the album. So while i was waiting for the photos i had a browse round boots and was offered a makeover by Benefit Cosmetics and i came out feeling really good. So i now have a shopping list of lovely makeup... do you think they will take cakes as payment!!

New treats added....

After another couple of weeks of being very busy with one thing and another the blog has yet again been neglected, but we are back.
We had a lovely weekend off and spent it experimenting with lots of new recipes and we have now added Chocolate Caramel Shortbread, Chocolate Shortbread Fingers and Rocky Road Bites to our menu. None of them stayed in there tins long enough to take any photos but we'll be making some more as we've already had an order for the Chocolate Caramel Shortbread and we're at Matlock Farmers Market this Saturday.
The new website is coming along nicely, it's all designed on paper and ready to be transferred from paper to the computer or whatever these cleaver computer type people do. (this is a very big hint to my partner to get it started, do you think he'll get it)

Here's a couple of photos of our first corporate order we had from a local pub for a couple of cakes.

Coffee & Walnut

Carrot & Orange

We're had lots of good feedback from these cakes and more orders.
Think that's everything we wanted to tell you, we'll back soon with more news and treat updates.
