Hello my lovely readers.
I am back in force today with a little post about a local cake company that I have recently discovered, who are making some extremely pretty cakes.
A wedding cake is one of the more delicious wedding staples and choosing the right one is a creative way to show off your collective style as a couple. We love supporting local vendors so here’s another to show how much our region has to offer!
Much Ado About Muffins is owned and ran by Kathryn Hardy who has some major skills when creating intricate and innovative cakes, muffins and cupcakes for any special occasion.
Kathryn tells us about her lovely company…
‘I come from a printing background and was the Production Manager for a large printing company for over 25 years. Cooking was always a way to relax, but baking had always been a passion. I have always given edible gifts, but when the cupcake craze hit, I started to experiment with new flavours, testing them on a very willing workforce!’
‘Soon people started to ask me to bake for them, it started with just friends, then friends of friends, before I knew it I was baking two or three times a week to keep up with demand.’
‘We create bespoke wedding cakes, muffins and cupcake towers as well as celebration cakes and catering. Our designs are as original as our clients. We were awarded 5 stars from Stockton Council for excellence in hygiene. Much Ado offers a complete service if required from invitations to cakes and catering.’
‘We source produce from local businesses whenever possible. We use their Fruits, Vegetables, Milk, Butter & Cheeses. We only EVER use local Free Range Eggs. We use Fair Trade Chocolate, Cocoa, Sugar & Fruit. We are sure that the quality of our ingredients shines through into our produce. We attend regular farmers markets and have a regular customer base. We encourage customers to place orders before our events, we pack and box their orders, ready for collection.’
‘Most Recently, Much Ado has introduced Cupcake Decorating and Pamper Parties, suitable for children and adults alike. Tuition is given to each person and you even get to take your creations home!’
‘At Much Ado, we are passionate about our local area and it’s businesses. Stockton needs a helping hand. If smaller businesses were to join forces and help each other more, I am confident that the outcome would be a positive
change of direction for Stockton and it’s surrounding areas.’
‘We love our work, every single item is made with the greatest attention to detail. We listen to our clients and give them exactly what they want, striving to make their event as memorable as it can possibly be.’
There we have it guys, some stunning cakes all made by hand, crafted with love by the wonderful team at Much Ado About Muffins. If you have any requests or enquires about these fabulous cakes then you can contact Kathryn at:
