My Bakers Dozen

Things are starting to get busier over at the Ever So Sweet bakery (aka my parents kitchen…) I’ve been cake baking, fondant rolling and macaron piping every day for what feels like forever!  I’m not complaining though, just taking this desk job girl a little time to adjust to being on my feet all day!

The only downside, which I think I’ve mentioned before is that I don’t have as much time to bake for myself and to play around with recipe ideas.  I do miss that side but once the business is more steady and I feel like I’ve got a schedule I’m certain I’ll be able to fit more in. I mean, I still have to eat.

Currently I have a batch of spiced treacle cookies in the oven and let me tell you, if they taste as good as they smell we are all in for a treat.  I was going for autumn but I think I’ve over shot and gone straight for winter.  Which is ironic considering we’re in the middle on an Indian summer.  If they’re a success you’ll hear all about them next week but now, on to a round up of what else has been leaving my kitchen lately…

Ever So Sweet Shop Update

Since merging my blog and my baking business I thought it would be fun to post updates every now and then to keep you up to date with what’s been going on in my kitchen!

Today I’ve been working on making 24 Jake and the Neverland Pirates cupcake toppers.  Yes, that’s as difficult as it sounds!  Up until I received the order I had never heard of Jake but I feel well acquainted with him and his friends now!  They are still a work in progress but below are some of the other cupcake toppers I’ve completed recently.

In other exciting news I have opened an Etsy shop as a way to sell some of my products, at the moment I’ve got some fondant cake toppers and macarons up there.  The shop went live about 2 weeks ago and just in the last two days I’ve had my first two ordes!  Very exciting but kinda scary because now it’s real and I can’t let these customers who live so far away from me down!
