cake, cake, cake

Hi all,

I have been toying with the idea again of offering cupcakes for small parties and corporate events though 'Evelyn Mae'.  I feel like in the current climate, the more I can offer the more I can spread the word about my business.

However, this will only work if I offer a consistently good level of service too!!

So this week I have been practising my decorating skills!  Its a slow process, I feel the taste part is sorted, but now I have to begin sorting out the presentation!!

So, I just thought i'd share with you a few things that I have been working on this week .....

[Vanuilla cupcakes with a cherry on top!]

[Chocolate cupcakes with chocolate ganache, and carrot and banana cake]

Well, they are certainly not there yet, but I am getting better, and my hands are getting steadier at piping!  We shall see.

Also this weekend, I have begun to refine my folksy shop and website.  I admit I am getting pretty frustrated with my website at the moment- I have found that it has now outgrown the perimeters of the google site I use, and it just doesn't look as clean and as simple as I would like.

Serious thinking time is needed as to what I need to do next - I have found another host that I like the look of, but don't want to loose my web address.  So moving time perhaps?  Who knows.  If any of you fancy looking at my website and giving feedback, I would be so grateful ....

it is:

Thanks all



  1. Hi Shelly,
    I think you could DEFINITELY do something with selling your cupcakes - they are beautiful (and I'm sure they taste as good as they look)! I say go for it.....
    I'm afraid I can't help on the website front. I'm terrible at computer-y stuff. I will take a look, though.....

  2. Thanks Carly - its always nice to have extra support :) I'm definitely going to give it a good deal of thought. I suppose i'm a little daunted by the environmental health checks etc. that I'll need. But you never know, we shall see where it takes me!
    That's half the adventure!!



Thank you so much for taking a look at my blog, and spending your time in commenting. It really is much appreciated.
