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?

Demarquette Fine Chocolates – Product of the Week

If you are looking for a wedding favour to wow your guests then take a look at Demarquette chocolates. If you love chocolate, and let’s face it most of us do, then you and your wedding guests will love the Demarquette chocolate range.

Demarquette – Fine Chocolates is a family run business founded by British born Master Chocolatier Marc Demarquette in 2005. They specialise in the artisan production and sale of luxury hand-made fine chocolates and are winners of 5 Gold Medals – 2009 Great Taste Awards.

The Great British Orchard - Fruit Caramel Creams - Demarquette Chocolates

The Demarquette chocolates that we sampled were ‘The Great British Orchard – Fruit Caramel Creams’. The design of these hand-made chocolates is exquisite, with each half sphere-shaped chocolate hand-painted with a marbled effect on the outside, like nothing we have ever seen before. Each chocolate is made with milk or dark chocolate and filled with a creamy caramel made with Hampshire and Cornish cream and fresh & ripe fruit, giving an amazingly fruity taste.

The Great British Orchard range come in a beautiful red presentation box with the British Isles on the front and are tied with racing green ribbon. If you are having a traditional style or British-themed wedding, The Great British Orchard range would be perfect as favours for your guests. You could have a little stack of these chocolates on each table for your guests to enjoy with their coffee after the wedding breakfast.

At £16 for a box of 12 or £36 for 36 you’re probably not going to give your guests a box each, but you could always split the boxes and give each guest a beautifully wrapped individual chocolate.

Demarquette have a wide range of hand-made chocolates that would really wow your wedding guests. For more information about the Demarquette range take a look at their website www.demarquette.co.uk.
