I did my first craft fair on Saturday (10 Feb) with a good friend who sells the most amazing handmade – well everything, from scarfs and bags, cushions to hair clips – Take a look at her website, Cosykitten.co.uk.
For my first go I didn’t do too badly, selling over 60% of my stock.
There will be lots more craft and wedding fairs coming up over the next few months, but for now I am having a well earned rest, putiting my feet up with a nice cup of tea and a cupcake!
I hope you to see you at Spring into Craft, Preshwich, Manchester on 4 March.
Cakes by JoJo has a shiny new logo!
Recently I was asked to create a cake for a charity raffle, raising funds for Liverpool Signing Choir.
I create a 7 inch very boozy fruit and spices chocolate cake decorate with a figure, snowman a lot of glittery snowflakes…
Together with many other wonderful prizes the event raised £280 for the choir which was enough to send one its members on an official British Sign Language course and gain a level one qualification.
A while ago I did a Moshi Monsters Moshlings cake for a young girl’s 10th birthday. I was asked if I could include Cutiepie and Shi Shi but the rest was up to me so I add in Snookcums a cutie little blue dragon.
I’m glad to say the young girl was so please with the cake I created for her that she sent a photo to the offical Moshi Monsters Magazine.
Imagine my surprise when I received a message from her letting me know that the cake was featured in the mag… sadly I’m not credited. Oh fame at last!
If you want to take a look it’s in the December issue of the Moshi Monsters Magazine. Avaliable in all good newsagents 🙂
Before we go any further this is just a temporary look for the blog until I can figure out how to make it look how I want it to and reflects the Cakes by JoJo website.
I’ve started this blog with a recipe for making very simple cupcakes with vanilla frosting. Making cupcakes is a fantastic way of getting into baking as they are really simple to do and don’t take a lot of time or cost that much to make.
I hope to be posting more recipes and showcasing some of the work I have done.
