I kicked off my first self employed week with a stall at the very atmospheric St Faith's Christmas Fayre in Brentford. It was a great way to start the festive season, with lots of lovely stalls selling beautiful Christmas gifts, food demonstrations from the local butchers, fishmongers and deli, and hot food and mulled wine a plenty. There were also Christmas carols from a local school choir amongst others.
For my stall I made Christmas cakes, Christmas pudding cake pops, chocolate macarons, florentines, brownies and cupcakes. I'm pleased to say that most of it sold. My lovely friend Emily came to help me man the stall, which was much appreciated.
After last night I am feeling very festive and would like to get started on the Christmas shopping, but the kitchen still needs tiling, so I'm off to get stuck into that instead.
