I attended two wedding expos at the beginning of this year for the very first time. I didn't have much of clue what I was doing which was quite obvious when I ran out of business cards within the first two hours and had three hours to go! In saying that I was quite pleased with what I managed to put together as a beginner.
When I was approached to exhibit at the Eynesbury Wedding Expo a couple of weeks ago I decided I wanted to do something a little different. I'm loving the pretty vintage wedding style at the moment and wanted to reflect that in my display. As a cake decorator, your mind never switches off. You get ideas from the simplest of things and these ideas grow and grow. And from having the idea of a vintage cake display came a complete dessert table. I wanted couples to see that CJ Sweet Treats can not only supply you with a stunning cake for your wedding day, but also a dessert table full of your favourite sweet treats that all compliment each other. I found that many brides and their friends and family were drawn to our display....whether it was the prettiness of the setup or free cake samples I'll never know! I'll let you decide.....

My name is Carlie and after searching for a part time job (to no avail!) that suited my kids school hours, I decided to start a cupcake business! Things have changed a little since then but it has has lead to my love of creating dreamy wedding cakes and I couldn't be happier!
