May Day - 2 - June

Phew, what a first quarter of trading it's been! Inventing and re-inventing as the season warms up the fruits for the cakes. The bitter-sweetness of the Rhubarb cake has been devoured by many, what a healthy indulgence to experience!

  1. Gosh, with all that baking, tasting, sampling, distributing, marketing, schmoozing and radio performances do you have to schedule in sleep?

  2. Everything just fits into place somehow.
    I wake up, go to the kitchen and have a morning cake, samples happen throughout the day.. then I have a bed time cake with my cocoa in the evening so I guess there's a schedule but it's based around cake consumption!
