It's been a great summer for some lovely local businesses, beginning with local opticians Haine & Smith. They celebrated an epic 40 years in business - and never has there been more need for celebratory corporate cakes! Haine & Smith has 40 practices dotted in and around Wiltshire, and each practice got a cake with their name on it, starting with Regent Street, Swindon.
This week I'm embracing the rural-ness of where I live - Wiltshire - and I'm very excited to be involved in an Open Farm Sunday at the fab local Gable End Farm, in Grittenham, Chippenham (not far at all from Royal Wootton Bassett). So to begin the embracing, I got some eggs - laid by their lovely flock of free range hens.
So the Business Show Swindon 2015 at STEAM has just been and gone - and what a show! My aim was to bring my world of branded cakes into the ideal setting of a business event - displaying some of my lovely local corporate clients as typical examples of how you can represent your business brand with cupcakes.
Firstly, I'd like to just point out that this is surely the best placement ever of a sign starting with hunger...
It's been almost a year since Little Miss Cake Maker became a full time business, so although I'm a little early with this, it seemed the right time to post as it's the start of a brand new year! What better time to review 2014 than now, right?
Such a rollercoaster of a year, and it's incredible how much you can forget while you're caught up in the action - so I'd encourage any business owner (or anyone for that matter) to take a little time out to look back at their past year and highlight all the good stuff you accomplished, no matter how small those things may be.
