This Saturday morning was one with a difference.
I was invited to the beautiful home of Sarah Healy, aka The Cake Lady to sample a selection of wedding cakes. Her home is at Lissadell in Sligo and she has a room full of wedding and birthday cakes, awards and thank you cards from couples.
We had 6 samples: fruit, chocolate biscuit cake, red velvet, carrot cake, lemon and vanilla.
Chocolate biscuit cake was hands down my favourite. She sells out every Sunday at Strandhill People’s Market, which is starting again on February 19th.
Here’s an image of one Sarah did recently… I love the look of this.
We got goodie bags full of treats to take home. If you’d like to book a consultation with Sarah, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0876486235. You can see more on her website here.
It’s so helpful when businesses reach out and get in touch. I gave a talk during Sligo Design Week about how designers and businesses people can work with bloggers and one of my suggestions was inviting bloggers to visit their work space or partake in a workshop. It’s all about the experience. I love learning and trying new things and seeing inside their world.
It’s generosity and warmth like this that makes me want to have my wedding locally. We’re torn.
