Las Chicas...

My cupcakes are now available at Las Chicas in Carlisle Street, Balaclava... a short distance from home and my favourite St Kilda haunt...



I hope your guys get a chance to see them there, my cupcakes are on trial to see how things go but I am hoping I will be supported and that they sell well enough to survive... Vida x

Congratulations. Did you see that Crabapple went into voluntary administration on the 2nd? Wonder what happened as they were featured in the Australian the friday before.

Cindy said...

Hey that's great, Vida - congratulations!

I also took a look at your Class Cupcake website again and it's looking mighty fine. :-)

You go girl! They look divine and are bound to sell their tits off. I'm so glad that idea is paying off for you. It's also the perfect excuse for you to drop by for a coffee and to see how they're selling ;)

I see Duncan's announced that Crab Apple Bakery at Prahran Market has closed. They are in Liquidation with Pitcher Partners as administrators. Wanna buy some equipment???? Nudge-nudge-wink-wink!

Ed, thanks, re: Crabapple, I had no idea! I did her class at the beginning of the year and she seemed to be thriving, booked out for months in advance, a huge factory and talk of opening up in Vic Market so I am totally shocked!

Cindy, thanks, yes revamped the site and it's heaps better... classes are fun and I love that I supply my two favourite cafes in the country! I am blessed!

Sticky, I owe the bulk of it to you!! Drop by for coffee, yeah I do that daily but since I started supplying I am scared to go in!! I had no idea Crababpple was in strife! She has been doing it for 8 years and she seemed to be doing so well! I guess we never know what goes on behind closed doors!

Thank you one and all for your support - Kisses to all, Vida x

Sticky, isn't life funny, I have a friend who I have known for decades who is a partner in Pitcher Partners... weird where life takes us... hopefully I will only use Pitcher for accounting and not liquidation!!! Vida x

Vida said...

Ed thanks heaps for the update... I guess we will never know what really happened! Vida x

Vida said...

Ilva, THANK YOU so much for your support, to hear you say they are beautiful really makes my heart sing... you have such a wonderful eye for everything so it's such a compliment! I will hug and care for Paul on Monday and every other day I can, it's all I can do. From the still bursting with pride, Vida X X X X X X X X X

Vida said...

P.S. ILVA, we are now even because many a day do I wish I lived in Tuscany, maybe we should do a house swap one day, deal? Vida x

Great work Vida. I was going to alert you to Duncan's post about a potential business opportunity for you, but I see that I'm way too late.

The next time there is a bloggers meet up, you must bring your cupcakes. You can have a cake-off with Duncan's muffins.

Vida said...

Thanh, thank you and yes there has been lots of discussion about future business...

Next blogger get together will be full of cucpcakes and muffins, it's a challenge and I am up for the task! Vida x

And so you should be proud, they look absolutely beautiful! I especially like the pink one with the rose on top. Good luck with the new venture.
