Christmas is our favourite time of year and we love working at Christmas fairs as we get to see everyone getting all excited and ready for the big day! Nothing makes you feel more Christmassy than being surrounded by baubles, tinsel, Christmas trees and chocolate! This year, we’ll have stalls at both The Christmas Fair at Ripley Castle and The Christmas Fair at Ascot.
The Christmas Fair at Ripley Castle
The Christmas Fair at Ripley Castle takes place in the spectacular and picturesque grounds of Ripley Castle, in the heart of the North Yorkshire Countryside. The show is open from Thursday 22nd – Sunday 25th November. We’ll be selling all our usual chocolatey treats, from our full range of brownies and bites to jars of Morello Cherries and “Earning Brownie Points” aprons. And of course, back by popular demand, our famous mince pie brownie! Crammed full with rich spiced mince-meat it’s the perfect brownie for all you mince pie lovers! Even if you don’t like mince pies, we’re sure we’ll be able to change your mind after you try this brownie. We’ll also be selling mugs of our luxury hot chocolate to keep your hands warm whilst you browse. Never tried our hot chocolate before? Oh you are in for a treat! Think Italian style hot chocolate, made with cream and the finest quality chocolate – we call it our liquid brownie!
The Christmas Fair at Ascot
The Christmas Fair at Ascot is open from Thursday 29th November – Sunday 2nd December in The Pavilion at Ascot Racecourse. Here we’ll be selling our full range of brownies, bites, as well as the mince pie brownie and lots of different flavours of vegan brownie slices. We’ll also have lots of different gifts perfect for your loved ones this Christmas! If you’re a keen baker or just enjoy spending a bit of time in the kitchen then you’ll love our new “Earning Brownie Points” apron. Our cute branded tote bags are perfect to help carry all your shopping on your way round as well! Having a festive dinner party this year? Our Morello Cherries transform your glass of bubbly. Just pop a couple in with a little bit of the Kirsch and your guests will love it!
As always, we love seeing and catching up with our friends at these shows. If pies are what you’re looking for, check out Pastree. Pastree are practically our neighbours, as they’re only based a short drive away in York. They make pork pies like you’ve never seen them before. Beautifully crisp pastry and the finest rare breed pork filling. But they don’t stop there. Why not take your pork pie one step further? Try one topped with onion marmalade and Lancashire cheese, or Cropwell British stilton and fresh leeks. We highly recommend! Candles are always the perfect gift for someone, because who doesn’t like candles?! Have a look at The Harrogate Candle Company. They’re also only a short drive from our bakery in Ilkley. Each fragrance has been carefully selected and are “designed to stimulate different emotions and enhance your mood.” The fragrances are available in a range of candles, reed diffusers and mist room sprays. Their candles are almost too pretty to light, but we can’t help but light them as the smells are amazing. We’ll definitely be stocking up this year for presents (for ourselves…).
We look forward to seeing you again at Ripley Castle and Ascot Christmas Fair to come stock up on all your chocolatey treats!
