May Madness

Hi All - Colleen here, thought we should check in with a wee update on whats been keeping us outta trouble...
We have had a busy month of May so far, and are really enjoying ourselves.  We're becoming old hands at the Silverdale Saturday Market and have been fine tuning our prep (assembing
 boxes, pre-stickering them, keeping our float seperate, remembering warm layers to wear as lil Silverdale gets chilly in the mornings etc etc!) and are so chuffed that some of our facebook fans have popped by to support us.
We're trying to get a regular posse confirmed for the market so people can find us a little easier, as at the mo, we've been inside the hall, but other times outside too - so watch this space.


Orders have started flowing in and we have had fun with Mothers day orders, office morning teas
 and a couple of baby shower orders. The little baby stretch suits in fondant are just adorable on the tops of the cupcakes in pink or white or blue.
Check out the pics.

We did a special Sunflower cupcake for my mums birthday, it was fun experimenting with the royal icing on the oreo to make the flower, and I am becoming obsessed with the wee ladybugs..we may have to make some of them a regular little feature as they are just too cute!

We've been told our website will be completed soon, and we were beside ourselves when we saw the test page, our professional pics set up as the gallery look awesome, and we are so chuffed that everything is starting to come together.
Righto - better sign off, Greys Anatomy is better get the tissues ready!
Catchya soon

We survived our first trip to the markets :)  We had a really good time and sold quite a few cupcakes, well once people realised that they were actually edible and not decorations.  We eventually made a little sign under the display case saying they were edible!!

We will be back at Silverdale next weekend so if you have the time please come out and visit us.  We are hoping going to be at the next Coatesville market which is the first Sunday of the month.  We will keep you posted on that.

Apart from the markets we have been busy with orders.  We did some Guinness cupcakes for a Mother's Day order :)

Tired but excited

We are very tired girls today.  We were up till about 2 last night getting our cupcakes finished off for our jewellery store event today.  It went really well and all the cupcakes were devoured :)  
We had about 10 dozen to hand out

We made red velvet, Chai and double choc  

Tonight we are baking our whole range of cupcakes for our professional photo shoot in the morning.   I'm still not sure what we are going to do with all those cupcakes!!!!

We are both excited about our first weekend at the Silverdale Markets, hopefully the weather will behave so there will be a big turn out of people.
