We’ve wanted to start a blog since we opened,
so.... 2 years later here it is!!!
Everyday our customers ask us,
what time did you come in this morning?
How do you do it with small children?
Do you ever switch off?
The answer to those questions is:
we may as well have slept here,
we have no idea
Here’s a little bit about us.
We’re Elaine and Vickie, sisters but also best friends. We share a love of afternoon tea, cake, good service, wine and family time. We’re both mummies and wives and like every other working mum, struggle to get everyone out of the house each day. But, with the help of our very own super-mum and some amazing staff, people keep coming in to our tearoom - and every day, we have to pinch ourselves!
We love running the tearoom together but it isn’t all flowers and fluffy cakes! We’ve learnt a lot over these past 2 years, (some things the hard way), but we’ve now got ourselves more space with our new bakery and we’re finally learning to trust our lovely staff and stop being such control freaks!!!
So.... if there’s something you’d like to read about or see in our Blog, just let us know and we’ll try our best to tell you. We’ll throw in the odd recipe and tutorial and we promise to tell you all the ups and downs that the customers don’t normally get to see! And believe me they’ll be a few to choose from. Just a few days ago, with the imminent arrival of 20 customers for a private party, this happened!!!
After a slight panic attack and quick thinking, a brownie that had been made for the next day came to the rescue! And we all lived happily ever after!! ‘Til the next disaster!
We’ve got a really busy few weeks coming up, Alzheimer’s Society Cupcake Day, Father’s Day, baby showers, wedding anniversaries and lot and lots of birthday cakes. Please follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Snapchat to see more!
Every day we laugh and sometimes we cry, but we have a great time doing what we love and we can’t wait to tell you all about it.
Elaine & Vickie xx
