MERRY XMAS & A HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM THE DISH & SPOON HQ!

Wednesday, December 22nd, 2010

208476057 With only three days left until the big day, the end of 2010 is just around the corner. Although none of us over here can quite believe we’re on the verge of 2011 (bye bye noughties!), we can certainly look back on this year and feel extremely pleased with all the cakey goodness we’ve delivered over the past twelve months. J

 

Tomorrow, Wednesday 23rd December, marks the last day of opening this year – and it’s a late one, closing at 8pm! Then our kitchen elves are off for a well deserved rest, returning on Wednesday 5th January with lots of exciting offers and sweet surprises to kick those post-Christmas blues into touch!

 

All that’s left for us to say is a massive THANKYOU to all our customers, that’s you guys… for all your love and support in making our little shop such a success these past few months, we couldn’t have done it without you all. We’re certainly looking forward to getting the ball rolling on another delicious year, see you all there! xxx

ON THE FIRST DAY OF CHRISTMAS MY TRUE LOVE GAVE TO ME…

Wednesday, December 1st, 2010

A festive cupcake wrapped up so prettily!

 

The Christmas countdown has officially begun over here at 230 Burton Road, and our little teashop is serving as a cosy sweet treat filled haven away from the white stuff. To start the festive season in style we will be hosting a special late opening tomorrow night, Thursday 2nd December, serving cakes and delicious hot drinks, such as our homemade mulled spiced apple juice, until 8pm.

 

Alongside our usual sweet stuff, tomorrow night marks the launch of our Christmas gift range, so come along and have a nosy at the cupcake kits, tea cosies and mug warmer sets, bespoke Christmas cupcakes, gift vouchers, and much, much more. We may be a little biased but we reckon any of these would beat those naff socks with Rudolph’s face on that you got last year any day!

 

Cupcake decorating classes for the New Year are also selling like hot cakes (pardon the pun), with the January 12th date having already sold out! Have no fear however, there are still places available for January 19th, and newly announced date of February 2nd.  More information available over on November’s blogpost (http://tinyurl.com/2fmepwf) - or by popping in and having a chat with one of our lovely staff.

 

If all this wasn’t reason enough to pop in and say hello, our new ’12 Days of Christmas’ themed window was unveiled yesterday, complete with handmade gingerbread house taking centre stage. If that isn’t enough to get you in the mood for decking the halls, we don’t know what will.

 

Hope to see you soon! Much love and festive sprinkles from The Dish & Spoon HQ xx
