Happy 6th Birthday to Kerry’s Bouqcakes!
Honestly, it feels like yesterday I was sitting here writing a blog article on Kerry’s Bouqcakes turning 5 – wow, how time flies when you’re having fun!! There will be many of you who read this, that have been with me on my journey since beginning Kerry’s Bouqcakes back in 2017, but also many of you who have recently stumbled upon my crazy cupcake life, and for that I thank you!Read More
Autumn has arrived
Autumn is on its way. The leaves are starting to turn from green to an amazing array of rich reds and russets. The blackberries are ripening and ready to pick. There is nothing my children love more going out picking tubs of them and come back with black tongues from the all the ones that don’t make it to the tub. It is also about making memories for them to treasure when they are adults. I look back fondly to picking blackberries with my grandparents and then helping make blackberry and apple crumble. There are not many things these days you can get for free so this is a real bonus.Read More
Summer Sun and Buttercream
It seems such an age since my last blog. Where has all that time gone?
Here in the UK, we have been enjoying some amazing Summer sun. For those of you who live in the UK, this is really exciting to have more than one sunny day at a time, without a deluge of rain in between. The lack of rain has been a bit of a challenge with hosepipe bans, and some field fires but we have been luckier than many countries that have been beset with vast fires raging in the countryside. My thoughts go out to them.
You all know by now I love my fresh flowers but my garden is really looking very sad at the moment with wilted plants despite me getting out my watering can. I don’t think my flowers in their current state will give me much inspiration for new projects.
Buttercream has also been a challenge in this hot weather. I know some of you from hotter climates have already worked out how to manage the heat and share this knowledge with others on my VIP Cake Community to help new pipers. I thank you all for your generosity of spirit. This spirit really is what makes my cake community so very special to me and all of the other members.Read More
Let’s CelebrateRead More
I have been thinking about how to celebrate Queen Elizabeth’s amazing 70 years as a monarch.
So, what better way than to offer for a limited period a Jubilee Special Bundle.(No longer available)
My Jubilee Bundle includes all the courses in the Starter Bundle and the Intermediate and Advanced Bundle and we’ve added the Sophisticated Classics course for free plus an extra £10 sale discount. The total saving on this one-off limited a Jubilee Bundle offer is £71.(deal expired) This offer will not be repeated.
You will have everything you need to start your buttercream journey.
Plus there are sales on some of my other courses too.
Check out my my Instagram and Facebook pages and enjoy the celebrations
So, I think I may be a bit late for the Spring party this year as we nudge towards Summer but life, family etc sometimes get in the way of work.
I love how everything, including me. regenerates in Spring. My garden burst into colour with daffodils, tulips and new green shoots appearing daily from long forgotten plants. It gives me that long awaited lift that the Winter blues are finally over and we are heading for sunny days. Obviously, it is only Spring here and some of you are now heading for your Winter but hopefully my new spring flowers will help you push the Winter blues away and give you a new piping challenge ready for when your Spring arrives.Read More
Happy 5th Birthday to me
Five years and still going strong!! It does not feel like a year had passed since I was celebrating my last business birthday. I still feel that sense of pride and achievement with each birthday that passes. I love reflecting over the year and what celebrations and challenges I have faced along the way. I guess one of my biggest challenges continues to be the global pandemic that we are all still trying to find our ways through. We have all had to adapt to a new way of living and working and my business is no exception. It has had to evolve to take account of this. I assume we all have a new normal but with this comes a lot of uncertainty about what the future holds for us. This uncertainty has certainly made me push my boundaries and look for new opportunities.Read More
