NEC was a huge success

Cake 2010 at the NEC was a huge success. Sugarveil just flew out and now we are just going through all the internet orders.
Thank you if you came to say hello, it was appreciated, as was all the words of encouragement.
I would love to have a small design team who would be willing to work with Sugarveil. The idea I have is that I supply the Sugarveil and the teamm see what they can come up with. If anyone is interested then please do let me know, I am looking for a maximum of 6 talented people and once I will supply all you need to make the dummy cake of your choice, if the design is suitable of course.
if you are interested then please do get in touch.

Speak soon!!!!!!!!!!

A Great New Link, and a Great Weekend

Hi all,

I hope you have some fabulous plans for a great weekend! As its mayday weekend, maybe you wont be stuck in the kitchen producing cakes. I am going to see my god daughter in Oliver tonight and then I intend to be travelling down to Kilmarnock on Sunday to view a camper van.

I have a hankering to take off on the open road for my Sunday and Monday days off. I think we live in one of the most beautiful parts of the world and I never seem to get to see it. I especially want to see more of our west coast. keep your fingers crossed for me!
on another note have a look at this blog spot http://www.cuttingedgecakeart.com/blog.php
They have spent a lot of time trialling the new Cricut Cake and give some pretty good unbiased reporting on it. See what you think.

I am pleased to announce that Alan has agreed to do two workshops for us here at Varis Pipe dreams. The venue will be Maclean's Highland Bakery,16 West Road, Forres, which as you know is now the new home for Varis Pipe Dreams.
