Merchant Adventurers Hall St Nicholas Christmas Fair

Preparations are well underway for the Merchant Adventurers Hall St Nicholas Christmas Fair on Saturday 27th November. It starts at 10am and is on until 4.30. Could well be snowy so hope people come well wrapped up!

I'm busy finishing mini and half-sized Christmas cakes for the day as well as some craft items such as tea cosies and bunting.

I'm also planning some other tasty treats so can't wait! Right, back to it.

Curiositea Cupcakes at Bar Lane Studios

I'm so excited to be able to announce that Curiositea Cupcakes can now be purchased at the gorgeous Bar Lane Studios Cafe which is adjacent to Micklegate Bar in York.


I'm so pleased to be associated with this exceptional organisation.  It is a spectacular social enterprise which not only supports local artists, practitioners and creative graduates, but is also rather snazzy too.

Their range of art, design and digital media courses begins next week, and from Wednesday there'll be some cute pink cupcakes to enjoy with your coffee too!

More information can be found on their website (about the courses, not the cupcakes!) which is  and a map of their location is below.

Might see you there!

Thank you so much to everyone who came to the Priory near Wetherby today. It was great to meet so many brides to be. More photos will follow so, as will the price lists as promised.

Such a lovely day!

Our plans to create the most monstrous of Halloween cakes didn't quite happen, but my 4 year old son and I did manage to create a beautiful round sponge cake (albeit green!) ready to decorate today.  Halloween is so yesterday so we opted for the variation on the Fireworks Box Cake I'd promised we'd do.  Orange icing was still the order of the day (as my son had set his heart on it!) so we worked around this.

We found some jelly diamonds to create the fireworks on the box.  I wrote across the cake (battling with some very stubborn writing fudge icing!) and then Harvey was free to decorate with sugar stars and edible glitter!

 He did such a good job and it was so lovely for me to be able to recreate this cake with my family.  Cutting it will be interesting, and fishing out the buttercream coated sweets will be a challenge but that's all part of the fun!  We've been used to eating fairy cakes with black and green icing this week, due to various Halloween creations, so anything currently goes in this house!
