Fantastic Feedback from the Birthday Girl!!

"Big Mama's Cake Pops were AMAZING! Great details on them and most importantley the kids loved them - they were devoured in seconds!. Nice to be able to find something a bit different for a party bag. All the party parents commented on them, most were upset they didn't get to try one!. All in all a fab product and I will definatley be back for more... Thanks, Mrs K Bamford. Xxx"

New Designs

Wow what a busy weekend.!!  I have been working a three tier wedding cake by making all the flowers for decoration. There are lots of pretty roses, Lilly of valley,blossoms and leaves. The cakes have been made and I will be decorating them tomorrow and plan to start putting the flowers in posies next weekend.

Big Mama 1 sounds like she is having fun.....an left me to do all the hard work ! We have a show in Friday evening and I am making lots of samples and having fun setting up displays. The first stand fell apart and I spoilt a few cakepops. Not a good start but best to find out the pitfalls at home rather than on the night.  Little Em is having a birthday party on Saturday, so we are all keeping our fingers crossed that this wet weather has disappeared and she can enjoy her pretty cake pops at her Bar-b-Que in the garden.

Have a look at these pretty new designs.

Meet Princess Grace!!

Here's our first attempt at Princess Grace for the girls' pops...
