Nestled in the Hampshire countryside, we love autumn; the beautiful leaves, the bright, frosty mornings and wrapping up warm. There’s nothing quite like a woodland walk in your wellies followed by a cup of tea and a slice of deliciously soft sponge.
One of our favourite bakes this month has been our mouth-watering Carrot Cake with whipped cream cheese frosting. Made with organic British carrots, organic, UK-milled Dove’s Farm flour, organic, Fairtrade, award-winning vanilla & gently spiced with cinnamon and ginger, this bestseller is a truly scrumptious autumn treat.

We’re delighted to announce that from this Thursday, 15 November, you’ll be able to enjoy our beautiful bakes at La Crêperie in Odiham High Street. La Crêperie is the friendliest little café with beautiful beams, the warmest welcome and beaucoup de cosy charm; the perfect place for afternoon tea. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram to be the first to know what we deliver each week!
Alongside our collaboration with La Crêperie, we’re working hard on our Christmas bakes, and can’t wait to share them all with you. Here’s a behind-the-scenes preview of two Christmas bakes; Marbled Snowflake Sugar Cookies and Fresh Madagascan Vanilla Custard Doughnuts with Sugar Snowflakes. Yum!

This week, we also commemorated 100 years of the end of First World War, a cause close to our hearts. Alongside selling poppies for The Royal British Legion, we shared special moments at a candlelit reflection with poetry, prose and song at St Mary’s Church Herriard and a moving Remembrance Day service at All Saints Odiham.
Let those you love know that they are in your heart and thoughts today. Life truly is so precious.
Book in that woodland walk or afternoon tea too – we know just the place for it!
Have a wonderful rest of autumn! We'll be back in December with our Christmas bakes!
