The gorgeous new website/shop can be found here!
There are so many people to thank in this first post in my new blog-guise! Firstly, to my darling sister Esther...the idea for Sugar Moon was born just over two years ago during a long walk we took around the village of Cotton Tree near where she lives in Queensland, Australia. She came up with the name, too, so I am indebted. It would have been impossible to create this business without the incredible support of my family, in fact...my beloved husband, Paul (who tastes new creations, keeps me calm and is my greatest champion), my little sister Lucy, who together with her husband David runs a new small food business of her own and is great to bounce ideas off....my dearest Mum & Dad, who believe that their girls are wonderful which helps no end...and my niece & 3 young nephews who are lights in the life of their 'Aunty Cake'!
The gorgeous brand design & website was devised and built by the wonderful team at Flourish Studios ...I love what they've come up with and I highly recommend them if you need a beautiful image with great communication.
My good friend Vanessa Kimbell took all the amazing photos for the website and publicity. She owns Juniper & Rose Kitchen Garden School where the photos were taken...and runs inspirational courses in baking sourdough bread and in food photography...as you can see, she knows her stuff!
And of course there was endless support, encouragement and advice from dear friends....Emma, Isobel, JoEllen, Joann, Rosinda, Nancy, Sandy, Georgie, Morwenna, Janie, Charlie, Debbie and the incomparable Sue Branch amongst many others.
And so it all begins here....the first orders have been baked and sent and received. Who knows what the future holds?! It's all so exciting and frightening at the same time...but I look forward to every day, and feel so lucky to be working at a job I adore.
I hope to use this blog to let you peek behind the scenes at Sugar Moon and also for other foodie-related things....recipes too! If you are new to the blog then do explore....there is lots to see!
I look forward to next time...and happy July!
