Let’s throw back to August 2019… to a time before Coronavirus happened and we were all leading normal lives! I was celebrating my birthday and being treated to a lot of lovely things. But possibly the best treat of all that weekend was my cake.
I know we’ve all had some cool cakes in our time but I can guarantee you’ve never had anything like this. This was a huge, silky smooth, biscoff flavoured dream with the most ridiculous and hilarious personalised message. And I have honestly never tasted anything so delicious in all my life.
It came from Bitsy’s Emporium (my lovely boyfriend had driven from Birmingham to Leicester and back to collect it for me), and I have been obsessed with everything Bitsy ever since!
Although she makes lots of baked goods, she specialises in biscuits which are a feast for the eyes as well as the tongue. They are bright, bold and beautiful and they are so distinctly Bitsy! They make amazing gifts for birthdays and occasions, but let’s be honest they add something super special to any event - they can be completely personalised making every one unique, so they make such a statement and add a proper personal touch to your day.
During the Coronavirus pandemic, Bitsy continued making her fabulous biscuits and brownies, delivering them locally and posting them nationally via her online webshop. She even managed to make her bespoke orders and bring out some super special treats for your special occasions. And, come on, her designs would be able to cheer up ANYONE...
But the most exciting thing that happened this year was Bitsy opening her very own CAKE SHOP! Based at Graff HQ at North Mills in Leicester, she's been keeping her loyal fans fed and watered with exceptional cakes and bakes, toasties, snacks and Bitsy Bowls as well as gorgeous coffees, hot chocolates and tasty little beverages. They've certainly been keeping everyone going on their daily walks in lockdown!
Ordinarily, Bitsy takes orders for cakes like mine online too - and if you want to get a little creative or inventive, I feel like that’s going to be embraced 100%! And don't feel you can't get a little naughty if you want to... This is just a tiny sample of some of the awesome stuff that she creates but if you head to her Insta or her website, you'll see what I mean!
And don’t forget, you can have these fabulous bakes at your wedding, too! I just love it when couples inject a little colour and sass into their big day, and what better way to do it than with gorgeous, absolutely mouth-wateringly, amazing cakes and cookies?!
So whether you’ve got a celebration coming up or you just fancy treating yourself to some cheeky little treats, you need Bitsy’s Emporium in your life!
