A BIG THANK YOU FOR SHOWING US SO MUCH LOVE THIS VALENTINE’S!

Wednesday, February 16th, 2011

dishandspoon_topshop_lores_0061 Phew, what a weekend! Feels like we have been baking all things red and heart shaped non-stop since Thursday, but we can now safely say it was more than worth it. Our little tea room has never seen so much lovin’ – and we have never received so many orders for special cakes that made all of us cry ‘Awwww!’ in unison. A particular fave included four cupcakes each iced with a significant date – whoever said romance was dead has clearly never tried saying it with cake.

 

A bit further away over at the Arndale in Manchester City Centre, our special pop-up cake stall made its debut in Topshop and was almost as equally busy! Clearly everyone was of the same opinion as us that cakes and shopping are the best pairing since Fred and Ginger, as it was a huuuge success – selling out of everything both days. Massive thank you to all the staff at Topshop who made us feel so welcome in their store.

 

One last thank you going to everyone who took the time to come see us in Topshop and at Dish & Spoon HQ over the weekend, you are all amazing! Can you all be our Valentine’s?!

‘TOP’ CAKES FOR ‘TOP’ SHOP

Wednesday, February 9th, 2011

lrg_topshopIf you’ll excuse our (pretty damn terrible) pun for a moment, we have some extremely exciting news for you guys. Anyone who has been keeping a keen eye on our Twitter page will know that we recently announced, after weeks of having to keep it quiet – which was hard work believe us – that this weekend we have been asked to open up a pop up cake stall at Manchester Arndale’s Topshop store.

 

We will be providing hard working shoppers with all our usual cupcake favourites, as well as our special Valentine’s guest cupcake, ‘Easy Lover’, all served from our vintage themed stall, made up of hand painted apple crates and baking paraphernalia. We’re hoping we’ll fit in perfectly and that our sweet treats will go down a storm!

 

We will be in store all day on both Friday 11th and Saturday 12th February, and are looking forward to it very much. Come and say hello, cupcakes and shopping – now that really is a case of having your cake and eating it too J

 

Much love from (a very excited) Dish & Spoon HQ x
