Perks of the Job!...



NOM! NOM! NOM!...look what I had in my hands earlier today!...it was a case of blink and you'll miss it as these babies didn't get an opportunity to stick around!...actually, I only ate one and gave the other one to my husband (ahhhh! that's real love that is!)....

...Why the gratuitous cake pictures you ask? well a few months ago, my friend Ali wanted me to create a logo for her celebration cakes and cupcakes business, Nice Buns.  That's the logo I created for her above.

Business has been going well for Ali and thanks to spending each Friday on her stall on Bridgwater's Castle Market, she's built up a regular customer base in our town.  So much so that she's now taken the step of moving into a shop unit in Bridgwater's Cornhill Market.  This is a great move, it keeps her business in the heart of the town as well as enables her to bake on the premises....mmmmm, the smell of Ali's cakes will be wafting onto our High Street, yum! yum! yum!...




...Now that she has a shiny new shop, she needed a shiny new sign to go over it.  This is where I fit into the story as that's my design right there above Nice Bun's shop.  I'm so delighted that Ali has taken the candy striped theme and colours from the logo and used them as decorative features of her brand new shop which opened for business yesterday!  Woo Hoo!...



...When I visited Ali today to see how her first day of trading went, she was frantically baking lots more cakes as stock was low already - so I take that as a sign of a great start!  Which is only right as her cakes are completely gorgeous...


...Luckily for me, there were still plenty for a box for my family and my youngest daughter was more than happy to choose them for us (as you can see from the pictures above)...


...Phoar! look at that sponge cake!...its getting me all inspired to add to my greetings card range. Speaking of which, it looks like Nice Buns may be stocking some of my 'Life is Sweet' prints & greetings cards very soon...



...I hope your day has been as sweet as mine!

  1. What a cruel post to do when I'm on a diet, Now my stomach is rumbling fit to bust- a piece of that sponge would go down a treat.
    It must be amazing to see your work up there for everyone to see. I wish your friend good luck.

  2. Oops, sorry Gill, didn't mean to be cruel - I know there are quiet a few diets on the go at the moment and I salute everyone with the will power to stick to them...the thing is, I seem to be getting a lot of design briefs to create images of cakes these days so this is all purely in the name of research, honest! ;-)... I hope you'll understand!xx
