Introducing Sugar's Treats AKA Hannah and Kirsty....

 'Sugar's Treats is an unbeatable baking combo who make cakes by day and fight crime by night. Ok, we aren't really but we would if we had the appropriate lair and weaponry.
In reality we are a duo of 2 best friends, Hannah and Kirsty who love cake and wish to spread the joy to the people. If we could fight crime with cake it really would be the best world possible.
The cake stall started to help out a friend who was organising an event and was let down at the last minute by their original cake stall. 'We could do that!' thought Kirsty, infused with excitement at the thouht of getting to do some baking AND turn a profit from it, not to mention being able to donate to charity by hiring the stall. It was a win-win-win situation, and so Sugar's Treats was born.....

As I've said we've both had a passion for cakes since, well forever. I will never forget he first cake I ever had, it was pineapple upside down cake and it was a revelation! Even at 3 years old I could tell this was going to be the start of something special. Regrettably Hannah can't furnish us with her first remembrance but was often found as a child in the kitchen with her mum, elbow (and sometimes ear) deep in flour, butter and sugar.
The main items to be found on our stall are cupcakes and muffins, all homemade with organic ingredients. The cupcakes we tend to stick with old faithful faves, vanilla, strawberry and lemon. The muffins we do play around with a little and try to offer something a bit different, ie carrot, macadamia and we do have plans for a savoury cheese and rosemary version at our next outing. Other cakes we have done include Earl Grey teabread (for those with not such a sweet tooth), lemon drizzle cake and tiffin (heavenly but sooo terribly fattening, I won't sell more than 3 pieces per person :))
 We like to make traditionally yummy treats for people with a slight quirky twist and are always on the lookout for fresh ideas. We adore our baking days, and the opportunities we get to go into the community and meet people. And it's the most wonderful thing to see your hobby please others, even if we do frequently get berated for making people ruin their diets!'
