Events this Autumn.

As the summer draws to an end and the heat calms down a bit, at VF HQ we are turning our plans to some gorgeous Autumn events.

What a summer we have had so far! With loads of opportunities for eating outside, entertaining with family and friends and lighting the barbeque.

What a year so far!

What a year so far!

So, its nearly the longest day and here at Velvet Fig we are half way through our cake year and well into planning the second half of 2018. To say it is going quickly is an understatement.

Well, what a year it's has been, here at VF HQ we have baked for weddings, birthdays, food festivals, garden parties, cake fairs, kitchen showroom demonstrations, a cookery school video and finally now preparations for Christmas, including a Champagne masterclass at The Dorchester Hotel.

Well, the Cake Show in Orlando certainly didn’t disappoint. In fact it more than lived up to my expectations. A visual feast of absolutely amazing cake creations, including a truly spectacular edible fashion show.

Coffee and Cake

Coffee and Cake

A match made in heaven. A freshly brewed coffee and a delicious slice of cake. Is there anything better? Especially when a good cause benefits too. So why not join me for a very special Coffee Morning at Velvet Fig HQ on Monday 9th October (10am – 4pm).

School's in!

School's in!

September already? How did that happen?! I hope you’ve all had a good Summer and the children have enjoyed their break from school. My girls certainly have!

The start of a new school year always feels like a big milestone, but once the shock of the first few days are over and everyone is settled back in to the old routine, it’s great to have exciting things to look forward to (such as Christmas!!). I know, I know – you can’t bear to think about the festivities just yet – but it’s only 15 weeks away, I’ve been baking Christmas Cakes throughout the summer and I even know someone who has started their Christmas shopping! I’ve received my first Christmas order already too. Some people are just super-organised.

Before we get too carried away with talk of mistletoe and mulled wine, I’ve got some really interesting projects coming up over the Autumn – and a very exciting development here at Velvet Fig HQ that I can’t wait to unveil next month. Watch this space!

In the meantime, as well as making 2 beautiful wedding cakes, I am taking part in 2 events this month. The first event is the Food Festival at G-Live in Guildford this Sunday (11am – 4pm, 10th Sept). It’s a celebration of fine food and drink, organised by Local Food Britain.

If you’re in the area or fancy popping over to Guildford (perfect chance to combine the food festival with a bit of retail therapy), please come and say “Hello”. We’ll have our fabulous Cake Sundaes, Gin Cake Sundaes, Cupcakes and Mini Loaf Cakes for sale – why not come and treat yourself and your family?

On Saturday 16th September we’re at the Big Field in Brockham for Dorking Rugby Club’s Ladies Day. If you are there for the Ladies Day Lunch or come down to watch the rugby in the afternoon, you’ll be able to buy some of our delicious cakes and gin sundaes – plus there’s live music from Ecletix after the rugby – a great excuse to make an afternoon or evening of it! More details here…http://www.dorkingrfc.com.

Good luck to everyone getting back in to the swing of school and work. Don’t worry, it will soon be half-term…

Love Emma
