At the start of July Jons Cakes was contacted by Social Chain to help with a task they had been set off Dreamworks.
They had been asked to get a Giant Noddy cake created and delivered to Channel 5's Milkshake studio as a surprise to promote their new studio from Dreamworks and to film the process at each step.
So we created a design and sent it for approval with the brief we were given, they loved it and it was the biggest cake we have ever planned to make, we then extended the ideas to Give it that little bit extra adding a moving train, Rainbow sponge and hidden Smarties ready for detective Noddy to find. adding these details also added extra length and width to the already monster size cake.
We got started on the bake with the Social Chain team filming and interviewing us along the way, The whole process was a challenge but one We took in our stride.
after the creation was finished we had a very nervous 4 hour drive from Manchester to London to deliver the cake, each bump, break and turn was a pull at the heart. not for the faint hearted.
after we got there and everything set up the staff came in and all were blown away. We couldn't have wanted a better reception to the finished creation.
Then the knife came out and my heart melted, Bye Bye Noddy but everyone said you were Delicious.
Thank you for including me on this great adventure
On Sunday the 7th of May Jons Cake's ventured out to do another wedding fair, this time it was held at Manchester Hall.
What made it that extra bit special was that we were accompanied by our good friends who have started an amazing business called Scene My Event whom specialise in dressing venues for all your amazing events. This was their first wedding fair to show case a few of their amazing products which are very unique and cover a wide selection from center pieces to photo mirrors and love letters etc.
We helped each other dress our products to showcase them to their full potential. I look forward to working with Scene My Event again soon and the future looks bright for our great new partnership.
We had a great day and met lots of lovely couples who are planning that special day - a day we've all dreamt about! I look forward to seeing you all again soon at the consultations that were booked.
We also met up with Catherine Mackey again from
www.travelcounsellors.co.uk/catherine.mackey who we had the pleasure of meeting at our first ever wedding fair. By the way, her stand looked fantastic.
Also at the fair we met some amazing new businesses and owners, they all loved our selection of free cupcakes. Here are a few pictures from the day.

On the 1st Dec 2016 the team went to the MIBBA to get the results for the final 3 in which we were listed. We all had an amazing evening celebrating with some great people and listening to how proud they all were about their achievements was very inspiring. During the Awards we were served a lovely meal provided by the Longfeild suite in Prestwich.
We came away with the Highly Commended Award for the creative category and couldn't be happier, Such an amazing end to a great year. We look forward to many more with all our great customers.
Thank you for all the support
