Fantastic News!

Gosh, where do I start since I last wrote my blog so much exciting news! You may recall my decision to appeal the results for my entry in The Great Taste Awards 2015 for my no bake chocolate chia seed slice due to what appeared to be confusion over a cocoa nib? Well on second judging I was awarded another magic gold star and the comments were brilliant and apologised over the confusion! So at time of writing I have 5 Great Taste Awards for my cakes which is awesome and one step nearer to one day opening an award winning cake shop! With this in mind I have also been wanting to have my gluten free cakes officially tested (in laboratory conditions) so I can give you guys peace of mind, my first round of 12 cakes went for testing a fortnight ago and have come back less than 5mg/kg (ppm) so I can officially say they are GLUTEN FREE and I have just received the certificates of analysis so I plan to take them with me at events should anyone have any queries or questions, round 2 were sent to the lab today so hopefully next week I should have the result of 25 varieties of all mine cakes which are gluten free, other varieties of cake are to be tested however the ingredients are out of season so in spring round 3 will be created. Other news, as anyone who knows me will know that I am modest when it comes to the achievements of the business and after being persuaded I entered myself into Newark business awards as a new business....Within the next minute lost my confidence and decided not to enter until a lovely lady from the awards tempted me to fill in the application form, it asked so many technical questions about market research, economic growth, future forecasting but I don't have pie charts or statistics so my answers were as if I was sat here chatting to you, I don't expect to hear anything but you never know? Other news, I have had social media icons added to my mobile site so you can click on and see my latest creations and one more event added to the diary on the 30th October which is Another Be-Witching Halloween party organised by the lovely Jo at Southwell Rugby Club so should be a fab afternoon of halloween themed treats and cakes plus I love seeing the little ones all dressed up in their halloween costumes.

Hopefully see you at one of the many upcoming events
