Bah Humbugs Retro Sweet Bags

When was the last time you dipped a lollypop into sherbet or sucked on a lemon bon bon?

This week Bah Humbugs sent us a lovely bag of old-time retro sweets that had us reminiscing about the last time we blew a bubble-gum bubble and let popping candy explode in our mouths!

For those of you who are looking for wedding favours, how about letting your wedding guests reminisce too with these sweets from Bah Humbugs. You could give each of your guests a selection of retro sweets – Dip Dabs, Black Jacks, Cola Bottles, Love Hearts, Popping Candy, Fruit Salads, Mojos, Anglo Bubbly, Parma Violets, Double Dips, Sweet Necklaces, Refreshers etc, or why not create a sweetie table by filling big jars with these sweets and giving each guest a paper bag so they can go and help themselves; like buying a bag of penny sweets!

Another idea to make these sweets a real talking point would be to fill different size jars, vases, dishes etc with the sweets and use them as your table decorations. That way people around the table will be able to help themselves and will be sharing nostalgic stories from ‘back in the day’ over the table.

Bah Humbugs is an online sweet shop. They stock a huge selection of nostalgic sweets, Retro Sweets, Gift Sweet Hampers, Lollipops and Jelly Beans.

To find out more about Bah Humbugs and for a trip down memory lane take a browse through their online sweet shop www.bahhumbugs.com.

Have you always wanted to make cakes for a living?

As a teenager I used to bake sculpted birthday cakes for friends and family, and always dreamed of owning my own little coffee and cake shop, but after going to Uni ended up working in advertising for more than a decade. It was only late last year that I rediscovered my love for baking and decided that the time was right to give it a go as a business.

Is it just you or do you have a team?

Lulubelle’s is mostly just me, however I have a few people I regularly call on to help me out at busy times both in the kitchen and delivering – the support of good friends and family is crucial for a young business!

What type of cakes do you make?

Lulubelle’s main business is cupcakes, but we do a full range of bespoke cakes and goodies from giant cupcakes to sculpted cakes, iced cookies and Cake Balls!

What sets Lulubelle’s Cakes apart from other cake makers?

It would be easy to say quality and service, but I imagine most cake companies will say the same! So, how about the fact that we do over 40 flavours of cupcake, are always up for a challenge and offer free local delivery?
