Twenty5Live

Looking out at this dreary autumn day, the summer seems a distant memory. As the nights are drawing closer, and the central heating is being cranked up; settle down with a nice brew and a biscuit and reminisce with us. 

On the last weekend of August we attended a corporate celebration. 25 years in business – Glasto-style! As with all good festivals, the day started off bright and sunny. We’d had a rather exciting trip over to Surrey, travelling passed Hampton Court Palace and getting lost down some side streets. Disaster nearly struck as we turned into the festival site, a car behind us had clearly decided that it wasn’t worth paying attention to our indicator and overtook us AS WE WERE TURNING! We’ve mentioned the brakes before and to our surprise, emergency stopping is possible. Thank goodness! The site was already looking amazing with huge tents, a main stage, various bars and these huge flowers poking up out of the ground. We started setting up the “English Tea Garden” complete with white picket fencing and lollipop topiary.We had lots of delicious bakes on offer for the hungry festival goers:

* Chocolate Brownies
* Lemon Drizzle Cake
* Vanilla Cupcakes
* Scones with lashings of Clotted Cream and Jam
* Rocky Road
* English Madelines

All served with a choice of Char Teas or Pink Lemonade and served on our vintage China. The day was full of music, laughter, floral headbands, OppoSuits and smiles. It was really nice to see a company treating their employees to a celebration. Even though the rain eventually came, it was a brilliant day that we thoroughly enjoyed being a part of it. Thankyou to Air Charter Service – we hope everyone enjoyed the cake 🙂

After a busy summer, there was only one more thing we needed to do…                      There is no better end to a summer season than relaxing on the beach. Thanks to everyone who supported us 🙂 

Lots of Love

Being on the market once a week, you get used to seeing some unusual sights. This made a nice change to the usual Thursday, certainly kept us awake during a sleepy morning! We’ve been baking up a storm lately, featuring customer favourites with weekly specials. If you don’t follow us on Instagram, you’ll have missed the drool worthy photos.

Chocolate Orange Brownies, Colourful Cupcakes, Peanut Butter Goo Bar, English Madelines, Lemon & Poppyseed Drizzle Cake, Cranberry Brownies and Oreo Cupcakes…

What cakes would you like to see us make?

Baby, Baby

Whenever there is a baby shower request we always seem end up with a soundtrack of songs made up with baby references. Though presumably, 95% of them are referring to significant others as “baby” rather than an actual baby.

Anyway…

The request for some simple vanilla cupcakes topped with pink and blue buttercream was in.  

We used fondant baby feet to decorate them and they looked great.  

Finished with a dusting of glitter and they were ready for delivery.

We had a great review afterwards which is always nice to receive.

Lots of love
