    Welcome your child with a Naming Ceremony

    by Yvonne Beck Celebrant -

    Welcoming a first or new child into your family is one of life’s major milestones and a wonderful emotional and uplifting time, full of hope,  joy and meaning.  The Ceremony is all about welcoming your child to your home, your family and the wider community.  It's about openly stating binding vows and promises to the newborn child, who will, with the help of Guide Parents and others present at the Naming, be supported, cared for, protected, developed and nurtured into adulthood, and encouraged to take their part in the world.

    FLAVOUR OF THE MONTH All About Cake

    by Sherry Hostler Cake Artistry -

    So who's got their heating on already?  Generally my oven is going full blast in the kitchen while Im baking for my lovely customers anyway, so it does mean that I get to put off the thermostat war with my husband for a little while longer!

    Different Name Same Service

    Earlier this year I changed the name of my bespoke cake making company to Sherry Hostler Cake Artistry.  This was due to the fact that there are now several cake companies which appear to have taken on the same name as The Cake House.

    However, I couldn't quite bear to let The Cake House go completely as it holds a very special place in my heart, so you now have a choice (and choice is always good).  You can visit me at Sherry Hostler Cake Artistry for a cake which is completely tailor made to your specifications, OR you can still visit me at The Cake House which now features my exclusive range of simple yet elegant wedding cakes.
