We started a new and exciting an adventure last week. It was the grand opening of The Play Café! The Play Café is a pop up tea room and children’s activity centre based in Overton-On-Dee every Wednesday 3.30-5.30. We have always longed to own a café but with the majority of our work being weekend based, we knew this would never be an option. We were looking into opening a pop up tea room and with having young children ourselves, we know how difficult it is to go anywhere for a piece of cake with your child so this idea popped into our heads! This idea is that you can meet a friend for a piece of cake and cup of tea without feeling guilty if your child throws a fork across the room or won’t sit at the table or screams throughout the entire meeting. We have all been there and have longed for a place that will entertain your little/big one whilst you catch up on the latest mummy gossip. The opening was a great success! As Halloween is fast approaching, we made monster masks with the children. It always amazes me how creative children can be when you give them an idea and the tools and tell them to create their own. We had some fabulous masks! Glitter blood red ghoul’s, spider webbed monsters and one with 100 eyes, they were delightfully scary! The cakes went down a treat. We baked caramel apple cake, lemon meringue sponge with home made lemon curd, coffee cake and our famous salted caramel & fudge brownies. We absolutely LOVE to bake and this gets our creative juices flowing again. Every week there will be new delicious bakes to enjoy. Lets hope that this weeks Halloween themed day will be just as good!
