Ellesmere Carnival

Last Saturday I took my goodies to Ellesmere Carnival… I thought I was well prepared, and I was, apart from the small fact that I didn’t realise you had to bring your own table and tent. So there we were with a whole load of cakes but nothing to display them on and nothing to shelter us from the rain! However, it was not a lost cause… they managed to find us a table and put us in the beer tent! Note to self – always read information properly and never ‘just assume’ that everything will be okay!

Anyway, we managed to get everything set up and sorted, the only downside was that we weren’t in with all the other stalls so had quite a few hours of waiting for people to come and find the beer tent… which wasn’t until around 2 o clock :p However, I can’t complain as it was completely my own fault!

Things soon started to get busy though and I managed to sell most of my cakes by the end so it all turned out okay. I also had brought with me a few new goodies such as coffee cake, white chocolate and coconut blondies and popcorn lollipops (very popular with the children!), aswell as the old favourites – chocolate and butterscotch brownies and cherry and coconut slice.

Apart from that I have just been getting on with my usual orders and trying out a few new recipes to take with me to the Oswestry Farmers Market on Friday. Fingers crossed the rain stops!

Stall at Whittington Fete

Slightly different blog post today… I just had to share with you my lovely day at the Whittington fete selling my gluten-free goodies – such a success! I was so surprised and touched at the lovely feedback I got, I honestly thought that I might sell a few cakes but I would never have guessed that I’d be almost sold out by the end. It was so nice to meet some other lovely people who were also gluten-free, but what was also great was that people who weren’t gluten-free bought my goodies – they just fancied a piece of yummy cake! I learnt a lot about what people like and what sells the most and it was definitely a great way to launch Hannah’s Gluten-Free Goodies. On to the next!
