Hello, last year was my husband's 50th birthday. To celebrate, I started making plans to hire a venue so we could put on a bit of a party. I even thought I would surprise him with a lovely homemade cake. Unfortunately, my baking skills are not as good as I thought they might be. The day before my husband's birthday, I opened the oven door to discover a complete mess of a cake. Thankfully, my friend had the address of an excellent bakery. The staff there baked a perfect birthday cake and even supplied cupcakes and jam tarts. I wanted to start this blog to encourage others to use their local barkery.
