Afternoon Tease does Mill Road Winter Fair…

What are you doing on Saturday 1st December?

If you live in or around Cambridge your answer should be…”going to Mill Road Winter Fair”, a local fair that truly celebrates and is thoroughly supported by our community. It was the enthusiasm of local traders and residents that made it such a success last year with an estimated 15,000 visitors! If you know Mill Road, you’ll know that that’s a LOT of people…I’m surprised the bridge held up under the strain :)…

Last year’s fair was a very important time for me, as I’d just moved back to my home town of Cambridge and was starting my own company ‘Afternoon Tease’ with Mill Road Winter Fair as my cake selling debut.

Here I am all set up and ready to go, looking pretty darn nervous…

You can read my blog about last year’s fair here.

That feels like a lifetime (and a lot of cakes) ago, but I’m really looking forward to going back to where it all began at the Food Fair in Gwydir Street car park (map here).

I’ve been busy plotting and planning and will have some very special cakey treats for sale on the day including my chocolate Guinness cake, which recently got me props and is responsible for the breaking of many a diet across the county (well Mill Road anyway 😉 …

You can also get a slice of the action at Hot Numbers and Urban Larder.

It was actually in the run up to Mill Road Winter Fair last year that I met Ivana AKA Miss Igs (who’ll be right beside me at the Fair) and not long afterwards that we started our Plate Lickers Supper Club together…we’re preparing a few tasty tidbits and supper club faves, including this delicous pineapple chutney…

which we personally recommend as the perfect accompaniment for cheese on toast…or just cheese :)…

If you’re at the Fair make sure you come and say hi, it’ll be great to meet you if I haven’t before, see you, if I have before or in the case of Twitterers, to put faces to names!

Needless to say I’ll be tweeting away in the run up to the event and giving you a glimpse of the goodies in store so if you like you’re daily dose of cake porn then you know what to do 🙂 @afternoontease
