January is such a quiet time and everyone seems to be recovering from a hangover or on detox.
Things were quiet at the Chocolate Cellar at the beginning of this month and the team brainstormed to come up with some fab new ideas for our Valentines Day Collection and also design some stunning new cakes.
So now we are all beavering away to turn all those ideas into reality watch out for some show stopping cakes!
Tuesday 5th January was pretty eventful for us. We had decided to take a day out for a team building exercise. We started off with breakfast at the new Novotel Hotel across the road from us. If you havent paid them a visit yet, do pop in the staff are extremely friendly and the breakfast was delicious many of us had the veggie option as well as the meat eating one!!
Just as well …. our next task was a treasure hunt around the city of Liverpool … A big thank you to the Stig who allowed us to have his picture taken with our team ๐
There was no definitive winner as we didnt have enough time to complete the challenge… I do think our team won though as we completed more of the bonus tasks!
The bad weather and horrific grid locked traffic descended on us the same day and most of us were then challenged with the task of getting home! It is so nice to feel warm again after such a cold week. We were forced to close the shop for most of that week due to the bad weather and we do apologise to anyone who made it to the chocolate cellar only to find it closed!
We now seem to be back to normal and our winter warming hot chocolate and cakes seem to be flying out. We are using January to try out some new ideas so keep your eyes and ears open there are always a few little samples on offer in return for honest feedback!
Keep warm … hope to see you soon Bala
