Chocolately chocolate cake

This is the chocolately chocolate cake I made for P's party Sunday afternoon - it was so yummy (if I say so myself!), and it all disappeared by Monday! I finished all the purses and then we filled them with bits and bobs, and the girls seemed to like them. I had a couple of mums say how much they liked them in the playground yesterday.
Last week was busy, as P's school had OSTEd in, and they asked me to do some supply for them on and off during the week. This was great as I had lots of work. This week I haven't been booked at all, so I am busy re-stocking. One of the mums asked me to do a Pickle Lily party, but I'm not sure. I've never even been to a commercially organised one, you know like Jamie Oliver or Usborne books, so I wouldn't know where to start. Still I shall give it deep thought.
I would like to say thank-you to Wendy at 1stuniquegifts for Handmade Monday last week, as I had lots of lovely comments, so if you're visiting from there WELCOME!

That cake looks seriously scrummy! I'm sure the gitls loved the purses. And yes, go for the Pickle Lily party idea! There's a lot of info on the web about organising them - you just need a percentage system or similar so the hostess gets a gift (maybe she can spend 20% of sales on an item of her choice) and prepare something to say to the group - maybe promote a few things.

Good luck!

Thanks for taking part in Handmade Monday x

I think you should share the next chocolatey choc cake with your Handmade Monday readers. Good luck with the Ofsted report and your party ideas!

Lovely looking cake. Many mums are so busy, that they love it if the children bring home specially made party bags.

Hi! I came home from knit club and whilst the baby sleeps and the other 3 blokes watch the grand prix I thought I'd pop over to say hi and see some of your amazing makes....and then I shall knit while I'm on a roll and before I forget what to do.

See you soon, I hope


Ps I don't use my name on my blog either, I'm picky about who might find it just to be nosey and not because they love the crafty life.
