Autumn at the Vanilla Pod Bakery


As autumn blows in we've been super busy at the Vanilla Pod Bakery with loads of exciting events and seasonal festivities to think about. We won't mention the 'C' word just yet (but it is only 85 days, 11 hours and 34 minutes away!) but we have been lapping up the fruits of the harvest and experimenting with our new autumn flavours and looking ahead to Halloween and some terrifying treats!

We've also been doing our bit for the student community of Gloucestershire and had a great day at the Fresher's Fayre last week promoting our campaign "I'm a student and I NEED cake!" Well we wouldn't want the future of our country starving to death would we?! If you're a student and you NEED cake, get in touch with us at the Vanilla Pod and we can offer you 10% off your order if you show us your valid NUS student card (offer subject to change and terms & conditions apply).

Last Sunday was spent at the beautiful Pitville Pump Rooms for the Kids One Stop Shop launch which was loads of fun. Showers of sprinkles and swirls of buttercream as we encouraged the kids to get creative in decorating their own Vanilla Pod cupcake. On the same creative note our cupcake workshops continue to be a great success and with more planned over the next few weeks why not come to an evening filled with icing sugar clouds and rainbow's of buttercream? Please do book early to avoid disappointment. Our next workshop will be just days before Halloween on Tuesday 26th October so expect plenty of ghoulish decorations and may be we could share some ghostly stories over a coffee - all taking place at Red Pepper CafĂ©, Cheltenham.

As summer draws to a close peak wedding season is over and we now look to wedding fayre season. This Sunday we will be back at Pitville Pump Rooms where will be exhibiting some our prettiest cupcakes and will be on hand all day to talk to happy couples and discuss ideas, inspirations and prices. More importantly we'll have plenty of delicious samples to try.
In the meantime we are busy trialing and ever-improving new and seasonal flavours including Sticky, Toffee, Spiced Pear, Carrot & Nutmeg, Ginger Bread and Pumpkin & White Chocolate. There's always a reason for a cupcake so why not get in touch or pop in and see us in our small but perfectly formed kitchen, we love to chat CAKE!
