Last Saturday saw us at Clitheroe for their annual food festival. It was another amazing day just like last year. The Red Arrows even put an appearance in to make it even more spectacular. You must pop it in your diary for next year as it is one of the best Food Festivals we attend. There are loads of foody stalls and lots of demos to watch.
This weekend we are heading to the Thoroughbred Rehabilitiation Centre for their Open Day. It seems a long time ago since I was Yard Manager there and such a lot has changed. It's a lot less stressful with the Brownies than it was riding the ex race horses on the day!!!
On Sunday you will find us on Morecambe Prom for the Carnival. We have been part of this wonderful event since the beginning and there are lots of fantastic bands playing so come along and check it all out :)
I've tried a new flavour this week. I had a couple of goes before I decided on which one was best....needless to say we have done quite al ot of taste testing ;) So the question is.....with or without a sprinkle of icing sugar.........
So I am having a little revamp of my online Brownie packaging. These are my lovely lovely new labels which if you hadn't picked up on ...I love ;) Many thanks to www.purplescrunch.co.uk :) We are getting ready for lots of Fathers Day orders to run along side all the fairs we are doing at the moment.
We were in Ulverston last weekend and the weather was mixed from 24 degrees to torrential rain! But none the less the lovely people of Ulverston all came out to support their town and bought all our browines and cupcakes! This weekend we are at Accrington Food Festival for the first time, so if you are out and about please come and say 'Hello' :)
Tuesday was a very exciting day in Brownie land. This special Brownies was presented to Prince Charles in Clitheroe on his Royal visit. He came despite horrendous weather and talked to us about our Brownies and where they are made and sold. Prince Charles seemed delighted when I showed him the brownie and took it away with him.
What better way is there to say 'Happy Mother's Day' than with a box of scrumptious Brownies. Available in a variety of flavours and delivered to Mum in the post :) Click here to order now :)
Today I have launched my first Facebook Promotion! I am trying to increase the sales of my online Brownies and expand that side of my business, so now only time will tell! If you have enjoyed my brownies please tell your friends and consider them for gifts for friends and family or even a treat for yourself!!! Freshly baked and then posted first class....what could be better than Brownies in the post? :)
A HUGE Thank you to everyone who came to see us in the run upto Christmas last year. The Brownies were a MASSIVE success and I am having a few days off now to recover and regroup! We had an amazing time at all our stalls, even if it was a bit crazy here trying to get all the baking done and the stalls organised. I could not manage with out Peter, my long suffering husband and Sharon, my bestie.
It was great to see people at more than one event too and it is so lovely when people back come and buy more brownies, it makes me feel like I am doing something right!!!
Brownie baking is booming in the kitchen with the brownies wanting to go out to all the Christmas Fairs. I have been making all our usual favourites including Oreo, Red Velvet, Chocolate Orange and Salted Caramel and they have been flying off the shelves!
The brownies have now been to a few Christmas Fairs and are having a lovely time :) Every one of them has found a new home each time we have been out with the exception of Clitheroe Market which was a little quieter than we had thought. We are in Clitheroe for the next three Saturdays and hopefully word has been passed around and the crowds will be flocking in. If you need more information then click here to find out all the fab things taking place each Saturday in Clitheroe :)
Ulverston Dickensian Weekend was once again amazing and we always look forward to that event.
This weekend the brownies will once again be at Clitheroe Northern Star Market and then at Guy's Court to watch Santa Barge in on Sunday. The cupcakes will be accompaning them on Sunday :)
We hope to see you out and about and please come over and say 'Hello' if you see us anywhere. We love to meet you :)
