Another successful class

In July I held another Cupcake Decorating Class with the lovely Jo at French Knots Craft Studio in Sale. As usual my students were fantastic and created very impressive cupcakes.

I'm taking August off teaching but will be back in September with my autumn class programme which kicks off with a Mother & Daughter class on Sunday 25th September.

Full class details will follow shortly.

Exciting New Direction!!

Now I have been baking for years, having been taught well by my mum. But it's only been in recent years that I decided to immerse myself the the world of cupcake decorating which I absolutely love. A natural progression for me was to dip my toe into the bigger world of cake decorating and I am HOOKED!!!!!

I have a new Cake Gallery on my Face Book page where you can see a small selection of my cake creations 

Here are a few photos

Handbags and Briefcases

While at the Baby Loves Disco event at the start of July I was asked if I'd like to take part in a social event run by south Manchester's business women's network group Handbags and Briefcases. I of course said yes and busied myself baking mini cupcake samples and putting together gift boxes of 4 cupcakes to sell and to donate to the raffle.

Now I am new to the world of networking and was to my surprise very nervous about going. The event was held at Bar Brasserie in Altrincham and I have to admit the ladies who ran the event and took part were so welcoming and supportive of me and my business that it made the whole evening very enjoyable.

There were many business women there, most of whom I got a chance to speak to and I will post more info seperately.

Here is my little table which I think is most pretty and as usual my cupcakes went down a storm!!

Sorry about the image quality but photos were taken with my phone.

Baby Loves Disco!!

If you haven't heard of Baby Loves Disco where have you been?! BLD is slowly but surely transforming the hippest venues into child proof discos as toddlers, pre-schoolers and parents looking for a break from the routine playground circuit let loose for some post naptime, pre-dinner fun. Make no mistake, this is NOT the Mickey Mouse club, and Barney is Banned. Baby loves disco is an afternoon dance party featuring real music spun and mixed by real djs blending classic disco tunes From the 70s, & 80s guaranteed to get those little booties moving and grooving.

The fun spills out from all corners of the coolest clubs in town: a chill-out room (with tents, books and puzzles), diaper changing stations, a full spread of healthy snacks and dancing, LOTS of dancing (and yes, the cash bar will be open for mommy and daddy!). But at it’s core, baby loves disco is a community event that brings kids together with kids and parents and parents together with parents, guaranteed to be the best time you've had at a kids event.....

BLDUK is run by my very good friend Naomi Timperley and at the July event I went along with boxes of mini cupcakes, perfect for little hands and mouths, to spread the Heather's Cupcakes word. I had a fab afternoon and the cupcakes vanished within the first hour with many little ones (and parents!) sneaking back for seconds ;o)

Hi everyone. It's been a few weeks since I last posted anything as I have been very busy with work, family and life in general!

I attended a really interesting networking evening with the lovely ladies of Handbags & Briefcases. I have now ventured into the world of cakes decorating, another string to my sugarpaste bow. And my baby girl turned 1!!

More info on all the above to follow.
