Hello! I'm back after a short blogging hiatus (apologies)...
This week marks 20 years of Cath Kidston so, along with a group of fellow bloggers, I headed down to the London HQ for a celebration.
Hosted in 'Cath's Cafe' (prob the prettiest staff canteen ever?) we supped some potent rose cocktails and browsed the new celebration collection, named 'Coming Up Roses' which includes a beautiful floral print items and a new hardback book detailing the companies history.
Later in the evening, we dabbled in candle making. There were various saucepans of wax on offer, including rose (natch), birthday cake (yum) and a blue one of which the name escapes me but smelt wonderful! We attached a wax to a Cath polka mug and poured in our chosen wax, before leaving to cool outside on the balcony.
Then the cake decorating! Lily Vanilli (she has an amaze bakery on Columbia Road) was on hand to show us how to make icing roses, and crystallised flowers. At this point numerous cocktails had been consumed, so things got a little messy...however with a Cath Kidson apron to save us from icing we each managed to make some spectacular creations which flatmates duly enjoyed later in the evening (we were given cake tins to carry them home).
A wonderful evening where we met some wonderful ladies! Look out for the Coming Up Roses collection- here's to many more wonderful years of Cath Kidston!
