2010 is the year of the lamb. Not really, but it certainly is the year of Pet Lamb Patisserie, the cupcake company I run with a friend. Last weekend we were asked to do the Make and Mend Market in Newcastle, a great medley of handmade, vintage and incredibly original stalls all ran by like minded people! My very favorite was Paperfaerie, one of our lovely Craft Mafia sisters who specialises in modifying old books into amazing and unique sculptures. Gotta get me one of those.
The market was a roaring success leaving us sold out by 2pm! Unfortunately, I had to leave early due to illness but my partner in crime handled the baying crowds just fine without me 🙂
Here’s a few of my very favorite treats from the market…
Vegan Red Velvet Cupcakes, went down a storm with dairy eaters and vegans alike.
The sweetest cupcake that ever lived. A marshmallow filled cake with marshmallow frosting.
The Elvis! The star of the Star and Shadow Cinema! A chocolate chip banana cake topped with peanut butter frosting.
Vanilla cupcake topped with vanilla butter cream and a lovely valentines fondant heart!
Rocky Road! Because everyone loves Nigella’s Rocky Road!
And don’t worry, you purest among you. Pet Lamb do offer a selection of pastry based products including lemon and filled fruit tarts. They’re just harder to transport to markets and such 😉
