Wishing you a merry christmas . . .

Welcome again to our blog, and thanks for taking the time to check back. Over the past few weeks we hope you have enjoyed trying our new products. Needless to say at this time of year the most popular has been our Iced Fruit Slice. Its a great twist on our traditional fruit slice, and based on feedback we even expect sales to continue after the Festive period!
Since our last blog we have also launched our first non cake products- a range of 3 flavours of scone- Plain, Sultana and Cherry. After spending weeks trying different recipes to create the perfect scone, we are now happy with our finished range, made with buttermilk. These are sold in packs of 6 and are available now- why not give them a try?!
You may also notice a change to our team members, with Louise Marshall now the Buyer for Cake. Louise has lots of enthusiasm for the role and brings many years experience in the Buying department to the position. Louise will now be sourcing the exciting new ingredients that we will use to keep our range innovative and fresh. Claire Hallinan has moved from the Telesales department to the Buying department, and will also be an additional Technical contact for any queries you may have. We hope you will join us in wishing them both every success in their new roles.
We can hardly believe that Chrismas is upon us already and we are close to finishing another successful year. Here at the Bakery we are on our last week of production, as we will be shutting down for 2 weeks over the Festive period. The team are very much looking forward to the break, and spending some quality time with our families.
Looking ahead to 2013, we plan to refresh our product range. This will involve de listing some of our less popular lines, and launching a new range in its place. Our NPD team are already working on the new range, which will include some interesting new round cakes. Be sure to check back in late January when we will be unveiling our fantastic new products!
All that remains is to wish all our customers and friends a Very Merry Chistmas and a Happy New Year from all the Cake team! We look forward to working with you in 2013!
