Rather large news for Vintage and Cake...


Well where do I even begin with this post?

I have written and deleted so many ways of telling you our news so I have decided I will just come out with it...


This is our new driveway :)

We are becoming smallholders on a farm in Newcastle Emlyn on the Pembrokeshire coast (don't worry no one has ever heard of it, its near ish to Tenby) and Vintage and Cake will be having a new lease of life with a purpose built studio offering lots of fab workshops, vintage style cakes and simply beautiful afternoon tea packages.

We will be back with lots of new classes

Come and get creative with us

Afternoon tea packages will be available for you lucky people of Wales

We are moving for a variety of reasons...Henry will get to grow up in the lovely rambling countryside like I was lucky enough to, we get to have a go at being smallholders, we can own some sheep and lambs... However the main reason is so we can be closer to my lovely mum and dad who have lived on the farm for 14 years and made it so beautiful.  We will be moving literally across the courtyard into a little cottage, that, lets say 'needs some work'.

The cottage has a long way to go before it becomes our dream home...

We will be living closer to these lovely pair..my parents.

It will take us a little while to get it all set up though, so while we get settled into our new home (we need to renovate it first... gulp) enjoy beach life and just generally get set up Vintage and Cake will be taking a little nap.

Our local beach 'Mwnt' you can often spot dolphins from here...amazing

Newport beach, I wonder if I will take up kite surfing...mmm perhaps not

We will be back with lots of beautiful workshops for you, plus we will still be hiring our vintage china and creating vintage style wedding cakes, so just watch this space.

I am not going anywhere though so until VandC is ready I will be posting our little journey here; the cottage renovations, the sheep, the smallholding and much more so I hope you will still be here to keep me company.

...and just because he is cute..here is Henry again for you :)

Lots of love

Vintage and Cake
