It’s been an exciting few weeks here at NeedCake HQ. Firstly, the arrival of our beautiful banner meant the good people of Bathgate could finally find us without the need for maps, SatNav and tracker dogs. I think you’ll agree that it fairly catches the eye and brightens up Drumcross Road!
We’ve also treated ourselves to some fantastically personalised aprons, courtesy of the wonderful women at Fun With Fabrics at Kidzeco. How great do these look?
Secondly, and perhaps more importantly, NeedCake were delighted to finally be able to join the ranks of some of the best small producers in the local area and take up our place in the Bathgate Food Assembly.
The Food Assembly aims to bring together people to buy fresh food directly from local farmers and foodmakers. If you haven’t already checked them out, take a look at their website or keep an eye on their Facebook page and come along to the next Meet The Producer night.
Speaking of which, we were lucky enough to hold our own event at the Food Assembly a couple of weeks ago. We took along samples of some of our delicious cakes, including our new sumptuous Red Velvet cupcakes and limited edition Sticky Gingerbread. It was great to meet some of the Assembly regulars, plus catch up with some familiar faces.
Bathgate Food Assembly are hosting an Artisan Farmer’s Market in Whitburn on November 18th, starting at 9am and featuring some of the best local producers. It would be wonderful to see you there – we’ll be showcasing our Christmas range, alongside some of our regular favourites.
NeedCake will also be popping up at some local Christmas Fayres, including Simpson Primary’s in Wester Inch and Balbardie Primary’s – some along, say hi and get some lovely goodies and gifts.
Before we go, we’d love to know what you think of our new look website. Please feel free to leave a comment here, or on our Facebook page.
Until next time, cake lovers, take care.
