Mother’s Day is a celebration honouring the Mother of the family, or Mother figure, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds and the influence of Mothers in society. In many parts of the world it would usually be celebrated this Sunday, 22nd March. Presents with ‘World’s Best Mummy’ would be exchanged and my cupcakes gifted as a yummy twist on traditional flowers. This year will be a Mother’s Day like no other, as scores of people self isolate and are forced to rethink plans with loved ones which to be honest with you, totally sucks!Read More
More about the life of a Cupcake
We all love that occasional buttery, creamy, soft and tasty cupcake. Whether it be Victoria sponge with plain buttercream or chocolate sponge with ganache topping. We can all find a space for this little cup of unctuousness. So is this little marvel a new phenomenon or does it have some history. I thought it would be interesting to do a bit of delving and find out.Read More
Valentine’s Day Ramblings
What are you planning for this Valentine’s Day?
As I expect you realise, I will be very, VERY busy making Valentine Bouquets for my loyal customers. I have one chap who has been back every year to buy a cupcake bouquet for his partner. He has secretly admitted to me that it’s a tad self-indulgent as he gets to share them so a double win for him.Read More
2020 Resolutions or challenges
Do you stick to your New Year resolutions? I know I don’t. So often we set ourselves up to fail by giving ourselves unrealistic targets when we make resolutions. So this year I thought I would take a more holistic approach.Read More
Believe it or not I actually love being a house wife. I love being at home watering my house plants and cooking dinner for when my husband and kids come home. Despite my best endeavours at managing, this last year was manic. Building my business is very rewarding but very time consuming. In fact I find being a working parent can be hard, as I am sure some of you may be aware. So this year I decided to made some life changes rather than resolutions.
Baking With Your Little Treasures
With the Christmas holiday looming I thought I would share my thoughts on home cooking with your children.
Children are like little sponges and what a good time to get them interested in cooking and more importantly learning some useful life skills. To them, just a fun activity but it goes so much deeper than that. Children learn using their senses, tasting, smelling, feeling, seeing, touching and listening. In the kitchen they will be using all of their senses. Even toddlers enjoy time in the kitchen with you even if it is only chopping up vegetables for dinner with a blunt knife. My children love activities that are real. What an achievement for them to tell Mummy or Daddy that they helped prepare dinner. If you can make cooking a positive experience they will take this good attitude towards food forward in life.Read More
Cupcakes for Health and Well-being
World Mental Health Awareness Day is on the 10th October, for a full week in the United States and in Canada for all of October so this seemed like a good time to write this blog.
I want to start by saying that this subject is one that resonates with me personally. I have mentioned in previous blogs that I am sensitive by nature. I want to share with you my experience and to let you know that despite your anxieties and mental health issues that you can be successful (and I don’t necessarily mean in business but in life). I have had spells when I have not known which way to turn and where the path forward is. I want to show you that you can manage your mental health and run a successful global business.Read More
