Following the release of the new Sex in the City film Neath has gone cup cake crazy. Last saturday the Daily Mail ran an article about how one of the stars of the show had sent Victoria Beckham a years supply of cup cakes from the patisserie featured in the film. Following on from this, we were asked if we would like to appear on S4C on Wedi 7 at 7.00pm on Thursday 22nd May to talk about our cup cakes. As neither Sian or I are welsh speaking one of our chefs called Barbara volunteered to be infront of camera. She did brilliantly.
The following video is a short clip of me filming them, filming us and Sian talking about our cup cakes.
The story has also been picked up by the Evening Post Newspaper who came to our patisserie on friday to film a short clip for their blog and to take some pictures of La Creme to feature in Monday nights edition of the newspaper.
Its been a long week. Not only have we had some great publicity but we have also made lots of cake.
We made 500 pieces of patisserie on Friday for the Swansea Lord Mayors inauguration at the Brangwyn Hall, 300 pieces of patisserie and 50 choux swans for the Neath Port Talbot mayors inauguration, 100 Caramel & banana bavoise for a corporate event at the Dylan Tomas centre and 75 individually decorated raspberry cheesecakes for a wedding at Margam Orangery.
All this as well as 2 wedding cakes and 12 birthday cakes.
