We get to set up our cakes and goodies at some amazing venues but yesterday’s was just sooooo beautiful. Ingliston Country Club is an equestrian centre/hotel in Bishopton set in the countryside yet a ten minute drive from Glasgow.

The hotel was the scene for Louise Kelly and Gary Lyle’s wedding and as Scotland is still enjoying the heatwave they decided to get married outside. What a gorgeous setting!  Guests then get to stay overnight in the little lodges.

You can find more info on the hotel on their website: www.ingliston.com   Here’s some photos from yesterday too:ImageImageImageImage

28 shops shut every day in the UK meaning our high streets are turning into dead towns! One in every six retail premises lies empty yet there are so many entrepreneurs and small businesses who are fighting to get their products in customer’s hands. Can a pop up shop be that little ray of hope for small businesses in the recession? We think so but there’s no time for thinking….let’s #godo something about it. We teamed up with 13 other small businesses from Entrepreneurial Spark ( E-Spark )to organise our very first pop up shop ‘The Entrepreneurs’.

Entrepreneurial Spark Chiclets

We found an empty shop in Glasgow’s Princes Square and devised a plan on turning this from a shell into a stylish shop for the weekend. This wasn’t going to be any normal shop as we had a variety of products ranging from Fat Free Drizzles,  ‘Powernap’ – a revolutionary travel pillow to ‘Bella Brilla’ and luxury wedding accessories. We begged and borrowed wooden pallets, wine crates and a till. We were going for the shabby chic look! (Skint).

‘Dwell’ in Princes Square kindly agreed to let us use their spare contemporary furniture (You  don’t ask, you don’t get.. right?) and the plan all came together nicely. We launched on the Friday night with a VIP launch night which Councillor Gordon Mathieson and Sir Willie Haughey attended then traded on the Saturday and the Sunday. The Pop Up Shop was a brilliant success and we collectively brought in over £6000 in the two days. Mary Portas would have been delighted…we will definitely be popping up again soon! Check out a video and photos of the weekend below: ImageImage

Scottish Fashion Awards Cupcake Dress

This time last year we were in the middle of creating over 600 cupcakes, 30 cupcake bouquets and building a cupcake dress for the Scottish Fashion Awards! The glitzy annual event was held in Glasgow’s SECC and we were delighted to be one of the sponsors!

We were briefed to tie in goodies with the fashion theme with the golden jubilee colours and through lots of blood, sweat and tears we created a cupcake dress! Nominees, Celebs and VIP’s including Alexa Chung indulged in our cupcakes and loved our unique creation.

The night was an amazing experience and we even got to meet David Gandy! Have a wee peek at our video from the night:
