Win 2-Layer Gift Set of Biscuits from Honeywell Bakes
I gave wonderful news! I have teamed up with a wonderful and unique baking business to bring you a Spring Fling Giveaway! The lovely girls at Honeywell Bakes have offered all Lavender and Lovage readers the chance to win one of their BEAUTIFUL 2-layer gift sets of biscuits worth £23:95; a bespoke baked gift that you can choose from one of their gift sets here: Honeywell Gift Sets. I am so excited about this and would like to tell you more about this FABULOUS baking business!
Honeywell Bakes was created over the kitchen table by sisters Rebecca and Rosie. Their baking skills came from their Mum, who always had a fresh cake coming out of the Aga when they were kids.
After designing and creating dessert tables for a christening and birthday party with great success it seemed natural to turn their skills and love of baking into a business.
Both of them have been baking for family and friends since they were 8 years old! Honeywell Bakes now offers creative baking from stylish iced biscuit gifts to fully bespoke dessert tables for lavish weddings and events.
As the oldest of seven siblings she’s been making goodies for the Honeywell family for years – there’s plenty of willing tasters. She has always loved being creative, and after studying Chinese at Leeds University, she followed her heart and started to work as a photographer (much to her Dad’s dismay, he’d just funded her to learn Chinese!). She now runs Rebecca Honeywell Photography, photographing mainly beautiful weddings and cute kids, and now increasingly baked goodies. She’s always loved baking, and when she’s not behind a camera she’s found a love for piping iced biscuits, over time improving my skills and posting the results to friends and family (as well as eating a few). Over time more ambitious projects have started to make their way out of the kitchen – from complete dessert tables to a gingerbread village!
At eight years old she made her first solo cake for a school competition (and won – yay!). Since then you haven’t been able to keep her away from the kitchen – she’s always creating new delights for the family to try. She first combined business and baking in primary school, where her friends worked together with Rose to set up cake stalls to raise money for local charities. She had her first commission for a birthday cake aged 11, when she re-created Dennis the Menace as a cake, and since then her cake decorating skills have been put to good use (when you have so many brothers and sisters a LOT of birthday cakes are needed!). After a break from baking whilst living in Canada and Thailand where she was volunteering as a youth worker, her return back to British soil (and her Mum’s Aga!) renewed her passion for all things food related.
They aim to purchase all ingredients as locally as possible, and also buy fair trade chocolate and other goods, when buying locally is not an option. They have their own hens and ducks who help by laying them fresh eggs, and they like to support farmers by buying local milk and butter at fair prices.They have a range of biscuit collections that make perfect gifts and can be delivered nationwide.
