hen party planning – mr & mrs quiz

We have lots of hen parties at bake-a-boo, pretty much every weekend. Every time one of our hen parties play their fun games we love hearing the laughter when juicy details are revealed or the bride-to-be gets an answer wrong. One of the most popular games to play is the

A round up of our weekend at bake-a-boo……

It’s been a lovely weekend at bake-a-boo, although very hot! We weren’t prepared for the great weather on Saturday, and had to cool down after we closed with Twister ice creams. But we are not complaining, a chilled sweet treat is sometimes the best motivator before cleaning the floors!

Mid-August is

Totally Tropical

As I mentioned in the last post we have just created a tropical window display in the tea room. There’s citrus bright colours, pineapples and coconuts, inflatable flamingos and Club Tropicana style cocktail glasses.

A round up of our weekend…

It’s been hot! hot! hot! this last week and the life of a baker is not too conducive to this weather. A hot kitchen with blaring ovens has been tricky for all us Belles this weekend. Nevertheless we have been inspired by the hot weather and our new ‘Club Tropicana’

A round up of our weekend….

It’s been a celebration packed weekend at bake-a-boo again this past weekend. This is the 3rd weekend I have been away from the tea room as I have been off work recovering from surgery 3 weeks ago. This is the longest time I have ever been away from bake-a-boo for

Bring (it) Back The Rockabellas x

2010 was a good year for me, it was the year I proudly became a published author! and the bake-a-boo cookbook was released. I’m desperate to do another book now, looking back I literally can’t believe it has been so long since this one came out. I feel as a

A round up of our weekend…the post Easter edition

All us belles had some time off for Easter, so it was good to be back this weekend after a bit of time off to rest and reflect. In fact I’m not sure how much reflecting some of us did as there were a few ‘jet setting’ bellles. Our manager

Galentine’s Day…yes it’s a thing! x

So it may be an American tradition, but as a team of all girls at bake-a-boo we are so up for embracing this! So the 13th February is ‘Galentine’s Day’, as far as I’m concerned it’s like ladies day! It’s a day to celebrate the sisterhood. Whether it being a

Elsa inspired half term event x

Who doesn’t love Frozen at the moment? At bake-a-boo you know we love any excuse to dress up and have a tea party, so the idea of having a princess party obviously appealed to us and we can’t wait for this great event we have got coming up for the

A round up of our weekend…


The Festive season seems like a very distant memory now that we are well in to January. It’s a tough month for most small businesses, us included – particularly as in January almost everyone seems to be on some kind of diet or detox (most of these unfortunately don’t include

A little helping hand this ‘Vegan January’ #veganuary


This month we are highlighting #Veganuary, which is a global campaign encouraging people to ‘go vegan’ for the month of January and learn more about this lifestyle, and explore ‘compassionate eating’, with the aim being that a month is less of a commitment, but the hope being that those that
