We did it

Hello. I thought you might like an update on our cake stall adventures at The Little Big Markets on Saturday.

We had an AWESOME time and almost SOLD OUT OF CAKE!

Everyone who came by our stall was so lovely and complimentary. All the hard work and semi-sleepless nights (just over three hours sleep on Friday) were 100% worth it.

We learnt so much from this market and the lead up to it and I can safely say that next market we'll be a lot more organised and be operating on a lot more sleep.

Our market menu included:
  • Lemon Meringue, Rich Chocolate, Coca-Cola and Heilala Vanilla Cupcakes
  • Vanilla and Double Chocolate Cake Pops
  • Apple & Olive Oil Cake
  • Raspberry Sponge Layer Cake with Mascarpone Icing
(Any of these cakes can now be ordered via my Facebook page spongedropbakes)

There were some definite favourites on the day but overall everything sold really well. I wish I could find everyone who bought our cakes and thank them for their support. They all helped to make this girl's dream a reality. If you're one of the lovely people who tried our cakes please message me and let me know what you thought. All feedback (good and not so good) is much appreciated!

I couldn't have achieved any of this without the support of my incredibly tolerant and helpful boyfriend, friends and family who did all sorts of things from carpentry to painting, design to transportation, photography to prop supply, sign-writing to simply feeding me. THANK YOU. You guys rock and will be paid in cake handsomely. x

Little cakes, big cakes all in a row

Seriously whippy and creamy chocolate frosting

  1. Your cakes are beautiful! Congratulations on taking that big scary plunge and launching your own business!
    I had a question.. My buttercream icing always seems to melt whenever I make it and I have given up using it even though its my favourite because the results are messy... what do you use to make it stay perfect? I saw they're in the sun and they still look perfect? Any tips you have would be great!
