Before I used to make Chocolate I wouldn’t dream of talking about Christmas until the beginning of December. Mince pies were a treat to look forward to and I would stock up on these on the 1st of December and eat my last mince pie on Boxing Day.
Now, we start getting asked in October when our Christmas Range will be released. What can I say?!
We attend events in November and really it is a sign of the times that people are so busy in December that they have to be organised earlier and earlier every year.
As the festive season comes upon us, we do hope that you will get a chance to relax and have some fun too! Our last lot of chocolate making workshops for 2015 are running on Sunday 15th November – come and be inspired to make your own gifts. Or chill out with one of Alright Petal’s fabulous Wreath Making workshops.
We kick start our Christmas with our annual mulled wine and mince pie evening – including our lovely friends: Alright Petal, The Beady Gecko, Carla Pownall Pottery and Kims Krafts. (11th November 7pm to 9pm)
We are then delighted to be part of the Fabulous Frost Fair at Claremont Farm on 20th to 22nd November. They have their amazing VIP Launch night on 20th November in the evening, a day of Demos on the Saturday and then a family day on the Sunday. Sounds lovely and in such a beautiful setting too!
Following on from that we will be at the Wallasey Village Christmas Night on 26th November.
… 4 days after that I’ll have my first mince pie 😉
Hope you have a great build up to the festive season,
So we are finally out of the chasm of Christmas and New Year – I believe it really is “back to school” for us all now!
2016 was a magical and crazy year for us – we made many new friends both personal and business.
Here are some of the highlights:
- We took on the lovely Ella as part of the team.
- We ran our first family workshops at Claremont Farm and also started our workshops at REX Liverpool.
- We were delighted to be asked to run the Albert Dock Easter Sessions.
- We ran lots of Hen Parties at the lovely Siren Cafe.
- We were filmed by the lovely Rachel Rhodes for The Guide Liverpool.
- We took part in the Queen’s 90th Celebrations in Wallasey Village.
- We schemed and plotted with Squidges to bring you Creepy Creations at Claremont and were aided and abetted in this by Readnowwritenow and AlrightPetal.
- We enjoyed the Summer Arts Market with Open Culture and were blown away by the amazing Winter Arts Market at the Anglican Cathedral!
- We were named as one of the Small Business 100 and were so very honoured to be amongst the other amazing businesses that were chosen.
- We went to Downing Street and made it on time!!
Phew! What a fab year that was for us and we were so truly thankful for all the support from all of our friends and family along the way.
We have had a break now and had some lovely family and friends time and Christmas and New Year Celebrations do indeed seem a dim and distant memory.
So here we are on the brink of 2017 and hoping that it will be as blessed. We are already hatching plans for Valentines Day and Easter (Not quite making anything for those yet!!)
We have been taking school workshop bookings as well as hen parties and are now in the process of sorting out further workshops for the gifted Workshop Vouchers out there.
Do watch this space for more news – hope this year is good to you too

So – our pledge of writing a regular blog sort of faded into the background as we crazily made chocolate for Mothers’ Day and Easter. We hope you managed to follow us on Instagram as we absolutely loved taking part in the #MarchMeetTheMaker Challenge – this was set by Joanne Hawker and many of our […]
Do we really need these reminders? views: 147
This week has seen us being inundated with love and kindness. It has been Galentine’s Day, Valentines Day and Random Acts of kindness Day – all between Monday and Friday. What a week!! It is sad that we have to have days to remember to have fun with our female friends, to say “I love […]

Quite often, as small independent businesses, it is easy to get lost in the day to day running of the business. There are always deadlines to be met, phonecalls to be made, leads to be followed up. The big picture can often get lost in the big buzz of business. This is why we […]
Moulds and Chocolate views: 353
Moulding chocolate is one of the topics we are often asked about when we do chocolate demonstrations or workshops. So firstly – let’s talk about the spelling. From the Grammarist website, here is clarification whether it should be mold or mould! … Mold vs. mould American English has no mould, and British English has no […]
