Happy New Year!

First things first, I’d like to wish everone a very happy, healthy and colourful 2021!
After a nice break I’ll be busy this weekend making these buttercream flower cupcakes, which are joy to make so I can’t wait to get started on that! There is still time to order if you would like to suprise someone with these floral beauties, although momentarily the baskets are out of stock so it’s just the bouquets and boxes for now…/buttercream-flower-cupcakes

Important Announcement Rotterdam Oogst Markt 23 December

After a lot of thought I have decided not to attend the market on the 23rd December.

I’m so sorry about this. I don’t feel comfortable standing at a market stall whilst the number of infections are rising so highly, the last thing I want is to encourage people to visit my stall at this time. I was really, really looking forward to it and to seeing everyone so it wasn’t an easy decision to make!

The market itself will still go on and I have 100% trust in Rotterdam Oogst and my market colleagues that everything is perfectly done and within the RIVM rules. They do it so well and even within these extra measurements I’m sure its going to be a special event.

I will be extending the date for internet orders until Monday 21st December so if you want anything posting out (Christmas cakes, chutney, fudge etc.) from the collection just have a look in the webshop or send me a message if there is something else you would like. Unfortunately not everything can go in the post (mince pies for example) but they can be collected from Charlotte’s Bakery in Hellevoetsluis.

It is, as always, still possible to collect your orders from Charlotte’s Bakery in Hellevoetsluis (please no more than 2 people in the shop at any one time, kids excluded).

So that’s it for now, take good care of yourselves and eachother and I will probably be panic posting my Christmas products out this week so I apologise in advance for the spam! 🤣😅😁🤪Have a lovely evening, Michelle 💖

Important Announcement Mince Pies

Last year I used Robertsons Mincemeat for the mince pies. As you all know I normally only make things from scratch so it seemed fitting not to use canned mincemeat anymore. It is also extremely difficult to get products from England at this difficult time. I have tried and tested a new recipe, which is AMAZING, although this recipe contains NUTS (almond slivers) and ALCOHOL (Brandy). If this is a problem, please contact me as I do have a couple more pots of Robertsons for those who prefer no nuts or alcohol (although please keep in mind they are still not suitable for people with nut allergies due to manufacturing methods). The mince pies are made with vegetable Atora and are suitable for vegetarians.
