I have been neglecting my blog for the last few weeks as things have been a little busy around here. I finished up at work last Friday (and had a massive night out to celebrate!), and am now going solo as Vanilla Frost Cakes. There is still a lot to do, but things are finally taking shape. I have a beautiful new logo, but due to my technical ineptitude I can’t show you that today.
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.
