I spent all of yesterday turning the bakery into a gingerbread workshop with the lovely and talented Emily of Maid of Gingerbread and building this fully operating art deco gingerbread clock for Christmas.
We were filing gingerbread with microplanes and cutting and carving, baking and sticking (with royal icing) all day, it was very elfy.
The sign is based on the Welcome to Las Vegas bulb sign & the clock will be sitting on the shelf in the bakery up until Christmas – come and visit it on Sundays or we are open from 5 – 9 pm on Wednesdays the 2nd, 9th, 16th & 23rd of December too.
In the Xmas Wednesday evenings I’ll be there making absinthe hot chocolates, soups, hot puddings with custard, pies, fiery gingerbreads & lots of other nice things – come & say hi!
We have mulled wine & some really lovely Christmas gifts too.
IF you want to order something special made in gingerbread get in touch with Emily – she’s great.
