What’s new in 2021
We are now well into Covid year 2. Not something we really want to be reminded of so let’s look at 2021 positives.
If you read my last blog, End of Summer and Back to School, you will know and possibly have experienced the same feelings when the children go back to school and we get back on the work and school wheel. I am pleased to announce that I am back in charge of my life and calm has been restored to my household. (Well, as normal as it ever is anyway!!) I hope you are all faring okay too.Read More
End of Summer and Back to School
I have mixed feelings about this time of year. We really have had the best summer. I mean the weather here in the UK has not been the best but we have had a ball. Both myself and my husband have kept work to a minimum through the school summer holidays. It’s been lovely to be out of routine and not have my brain exploding with so much to think about. We have enjoyed a summer of leisurely mornings, getting dressed late, long days out without a care in the world and late nights sipping glasses of wine. We have enjoyed the lack of any kind of routine or commitments, each day relaxed and unscheduled.Read More
**Flash Summer Sale** Don’t wait – Just do it now
It is Summer here in the UK so what better time that to launch a Flash Summer sale on my online courses.Read More
The sale is for all of my lovely followers everywhere, those who have not yet started on their cupcake journey and those who are already on their path into amazing buttercream flowers.
I love my cake craft and enjoy making and designing my cupcakes. It always gives me a little buzz when I have finished a cupcake bouquet or a box of tasty cupcakes. There is always that little touch of anxiety before collection that this is not what the person visualised when they placed the order. I am not a career driven person but I do set myself extremely high standards and it is only natural that I want customers to be happy.
I started my business so I could be a “working from home Mum”. I wanted to spend more time with my children whilst they were young enough to still want me around. I had the ideal image in my head of being the perfect Mum as well as having a successful career. Well, we all know that 2 + 2 in terms of real life normally equals 5 when you have young children.Read More
A Walk On The Wild Side
I am often asked where I get my cupcake flower and colour inspiration from.
If you had asked me in my teens, I would never have admitted that I was a country girl at heart. As a child my parents dragged me down country lanes, up hills and down dales, holidays were spent under canvas and moonlit sky ; no TV, just making friends with other young campers and amusing ourselves building dens out of twigs and cut grass etc. My sister and I could often be found with paper, glue and various flowers, leaves, twigs and shells making masterpieces (well at least to us they were) for our parents. I never fully appreciated it at the time but am so grateful now for the experiences and want to pass this love of nature on to my children. Looking back now I can see this was the cornerstone for my love of flowers and subsequently the inspiration for my business.
