It started with my son’s 5th birthday. I had been thinking about extending my product range and loved the idea of cake toppers. One of my favourite birthday activities is baking and cake decoration. I have such amazing memories of the birthday cakes my mum and aunt made for me – and I want to do the same for my kids.
Over the past 9 years I have slowly improved my baking skills, and although my decorating is getting there, I thought, why not use my paper crafting skills to make my own decorations? So at the start of 2020 I made my first set of personalised cake toppers – a space cake topper set featuring a rocket, planets, aliens and stars.
It just elevated my rather flat cake and turned it into a masterpiece. Finn’s face when it was brought out at the birthday party was priceless and I knew I was ready to bring these to the world! We can’t all create the fabulously decorated cakes we see the professionals make, but here was a way to bring a home-baked (or shop bought) cake up to the same level of ‘WOW’.
They’ve been joined by a set of personalised space theme party straws – decorated with rockets, alien-ships and stars. And now, as I aim for the ultimate space party experience, I am ready to launch the next product …..
Following a collaboration with fellow Indie Biz owner, Becky, at Ludicrous Prints I am about to start the release of the next stage of Bear & Willow’s party range.
Have you ever just wanted to be able to put together a party bag that suits the theme of your party? Something thats not full of plastic toys and sweets picked up from the supermarket shelves? I certainly have, and so the themed party bag and sticker set was born. First theme due for release on Friday May 28th 2021 ….
