At Sass & Belle, we strongly believe that cookies are always a good idea, especially as the nights start drawing in and there is a chill in the air. These fun and beautiful sugar biscuits add some seasonal charm to the home and are a tasty way to celebrate the colder months. They’re perfect with a cup of cocoa, too. Light some candles, snuggle up and indulge in these delicious treats.
We are very excited right now, for so many reasons. Firstly because today The Great British Bake Off will be back on our screens. There is no TV programme we love quite like GBBO. Mary Berry and the clan are as comforting as tucking into a slice of Victoria Sponge. It inspires us to bake in a way that no other cookery show has done before it. For that, we are eternally grateful. Another reason we’re rather ecstatic is because we have our very first guest blogger showing us how to bake *the prettiest cake we’ve ever seen*! The lovely Eboni, from EBONI + IVORY, also shows us an extremely easy Pink Lemonade recipe – another thing we’re eternally grateful for (you can see why we’re a little overexcited.) Now you’ve heard what’s in store, we imagine you are a bit too! Read on to discover how to bake pretty with Eboni…
In celebration of the GBBO and all things yummy, we got our bake on and *attempted* to make the prettiest cake you ever did see: a naked cake! The naked cake is not as saucy as it sounds, but it is damn-right delectable. Not for the faint-hearted, this bad boy will have you so proud of your accomplishments post-bake, you’ll practically be filling out your entrance form for 2017’s series. Let’s get to it!
Unless you've been living under a rock, you may be aware that the EU Referendum will be taking place on Thursday 23rd June. Now we’re not going to pretend that politics is our forte; masters of giftware we may be, but political wizards we are not! We do, however, acknowledge the importance the EU referendum and how voting in or out effects our lives and the future of the country. A few weeks back the affable Chuka Umanna came to our office to encourage us to all vote to stay part of the EU. We never say no to a party, and an opportunity to eat cake, so we went wild making our office fit for a politician. Here is a rundown of what we got up to.
Every May Sass & Belle takes part in National Deaf Children’s Society’s (also known as NDCS) Big Cake Bake to raise money for the lovely charity and to honour National Deaf Awareness Week. Not only is it an excuse to eat cake (who needs one really?), it’s a reason to put a lot of our pretty products to good use and get the office together for a right old knees up. This year we took advantage of the shining sun and hosted a vintage tea party outside.
