Just a quick post to say thank you to everyone who voted for me for the Local Gem Award in the St Albans Food and Drink Awards. I didn’t win, but I cam second and got ‘Highly Commended’ which is lovely. After all, it would be greedy to win 2 years in a row. Congratulations to Johnny from The Pudding Stop who won and to all the other worthy winners and nominees in the Festival.

We had a lovely time at the Food Festival Finale this year – another great event. Sold out of cupcakes and only had a few cake pops left which I gave to my wonderful stall helpers so worked out very well. It’s always nice when you sell out as it makes all the hard work worth while and it was really nice to see so many new faces at the festival. Making people smile is the best thing about my job!

Me in front of my stall with a cupcake St Albans Flag and little St Albans Crests. Plus my new Best of British range and Halloween cupcake stand.

Thanks for coming and see you next year!
