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

áI 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 HEREá

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.

áOur 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!

Baltic Market views: 297

We were really excited to be part of the farmers market at the Baltic Market yesterday. We registered our interest as soon as we heard that a market was going to be running there – just by the old Cains Brewery. For years we have thought that Liverpool was crying out for a local market […]
