I love it when you come across new businesses doing great things that are just a bit different, and The Kitsch Hen Cakes is such a business. I mean, just how beautiful are these?
Caroline Stafford, the owner and creator, sent me this box, and actually though a random choice on her behalf were a perfect little pick me up in a difficult week. Great sentiments, pretty to look at and delicious to eat with a resorative cup of tea.
The first box I’d seen were for a friend who’d just had a baby, so a box similar to this:
I thought it was a really lovely thing to receive, and heaven knows grabbing a cup of tea and a delicious biscuit would feel a great treat in those early weeks.
Caroline has only recently started the business, after some difficult times of her own with the idea coming from wanting to send a friend something more than a card, but to give them a bit of a lift. And I can see that it would, for all kinds of occasions. If you’re organised and thinking ahead to end of term teacher gifts then these are definitely better than a box of Quality Street!
This is a small business that I hope will grow, it certainly deserves to in my book. All the detail is beautiful and well thought through, and something that will raise a smile no matter what the occasion. For now, you can contact Caroline through The Kitsch Hen Cake’s Facebook page, website coming soon.
