Star Bakery newsletter debuts for Christmas

Evening all! Some of you might have read my various posts over the past few weeks talking about to-do lists and all the things I want to accomplish in coming weeks and I am happy to say one of those things is now officially ticked off the list.

Star Bakery now has a newsletter that will be sent out on a monthly basis. The newsletter will feature seasonal specials, offers and information about what's happening in our kitchen.

If you'd like to subscribe to receive our newsletter straight into your inbox then please email us at newsletter@starbakery.co.uk You can read the first edition here.

Let me know your thoughts and if there's anything else you'd like to see in forthcoming issues.


Cake stall at school fair

Whew! What a busy few weeks it's been - I honestly curse our 24 hour day sometimes, why can't you be more flexible father time??

So what's been keeping me busy? Well firstly, an influx of unexpected cake orders. I try really hard to accommodate all order requests, but my free time has paid the price. Some of you will know I also have a full time job I work alongside Star Bakery so my only 'baking time' is evenings and weekends. I'm not complaining though, all of my customers are fab and continue to challenge my creative skills daily.


Save the date!

Star Bakery will be getting festive this December and appearing at our FIRST Christmas event at Rufford Abbey in Nottinghamshire.

I am sooo excited to have a stall there this year, I love Rufford and this time of the year is very special at the grounds with lots to do for the little ones while you shop! Here is a detailed extract from the events programme.


Cupcakes hitting the headlines again

Bit late posting the link to this but one of my lovely Twitter followers alerted me to this article on the BBC website.

I think the 'cupcake revival' they speak of has been in the pipeline for at least the last 5-7 years, the UK has just taken a little longer to catch on commercially with bakeries only really starting to appear since 2005 (Star Bakery only came into existence in 2009 but the idea was there for a while...!). There are some exceptions of course, but I hear a lot of my London based pals commenting that cupcakes are now appearing everywhere in the past year.
