Summer’s here

Filed in Blog by on 22nd July 2009 0 Comments • views: 1856

 

I can’t believe how predictably the disappearance of our heat-wave co-incided with the beginning of the summer holidays.

 I have to say I can’t say I’m devastated by this – no one wants our delicious hot chocolate when the sun’s out in full strength – maybe we need to consider selling ice creams next summer? But then this takes us into a whole new dimension!

So – as you can guess we’ve been a little quiet in the aftermath of Easter …. what have we been hatching whilst the sun’s been out?

Well, our summer cupcakes made by the delightful Helen went down a treat. Lime and Coconut! They looked absolutely divine and tasted amazing.

We changed the layout in the shop to allow all of our goodies to be more visible – please let me know what you think of the layout when you have visited the shop!

We watched the final of The Apprentice with interest! I loved the packaging chosen by the winner, Yasmina and am looking for something similar now – obviously containing our fine handmade chocolates instead of those designed by The Apprentice Team.

We have planned our chocolate tasting club – this is being launched towards the end of August. Let me know if you are interested in attending the launch party!

We have now formalised our workshops – details available HERE 
 
For the summer holidays we are offering children’s workshops every Tuesday at 11am – call us on 0151 200 2202 if you would like further details.

We have also booked our place for the Wirral and the Liverpool Food and Drink Festivals.

 Our signage is well on its way now and should hopefully be up in the next 4 weeks – free box of chocs for the first person (not employed by us!) to e-mail me and say they’ve seen it in place!

WORKSHOPS

 

The Chocolate Cellar offers a range of workshops. The workshops are taught by Award Winning Chocolatier, Bala Croman.

Bala’s passion for chocolate is totally infectious and all who have attended have come away inspired and enthralled by the art of chocolate making.

Sessions are run at The Chocolate Cellar in Liverpool City Centre and at Claremont Kitchens on the Wirral.

Workshops can be arranged for groups on mutually agreeable dates or for individuals on pre-arranged dates.

 

Our workshops are popular for corporate events, birthday parties, hen /stag parties and special individual treats.

 

All items created during the workshop are packaged and taken home by participants.
