Who would have thought some little lines would mean so much! It’s been a long old process designing my new grab and go bars but one that has taught me so much in such a short space of time. (I will be doing a vlog about it as soon as I can) these little lines popping out of my head now belong to By alana... and it’s a funny old thing to be excited about but I am. Little excitement dashes that we can now use on everything we do. Every little detail we have put on our new bars (that will be launching soon) has been carefully thought out. Many a meeting brainstorming ideas with the wonderful @white_sky_creative and many a concepts seen. The one we have gone with is now being created as we speak and these little lines are just a small part of that design. I feel like every day I learn more and more about who/ what this brand is, and as I continue to front it it will grow, change and adapt as I do over time. Thanks for all the hard work @white_sky_creative may there be many more excitement dashes created!

Spending a few days with my fellow sweet treat sister. I met this one five years ago when we were both at Hampton court palace, me with my Narnas cake stand and Laura with her fudge store. We hit it off right away and spent the day chatting all things confectionary. It was my first “big” show. By big I mean, the pitch cost was higher and the risk was more. We both had sell outs that weekend. We have been friends ever since and regularly meet up to talk business and drink wine. It’s so important to surround yourself with people who compliment what you do and tell you you are amazing when you are telling yourself you are not! Thanks is for being the fudge to my flapjack @laurasconfectionery 💕

It’s one of these weeks where social media content is pretty difficult. I am in the office most of the week being super productive and planning all our launch dates for all the exciting things we have been working on. Subsequently I have eaten a lot of cake this week, mainly a slice that is one half of our subscription box this month; the Lemon Drizzle Blondie, soft gooey lemon & white chocolate blondie & a tart snap in the mouth icing 😍 it’s been the perfect treat to keep me going while planning the launch of our new Grab & Go bars and the new way to join our Ridiculously Rich family, both happening very soon! Deciding launch dates & countown teasers are today’s tasks, but I am just too excited and am thinking that next week should be the big reveal as to what these Grab & Go’s will be... I don’t think I can hold off showing you all for much longer! (Hint: it’s not a Lemon Blondie, but boy is this one delicious!)

Crazy fact, I started this business nearly 10 years ago. Granted it was under a different name but the premis was the same. Delicious slabs of (Ridiculously Rich) cakes made and developed by me and sold at markets and food festivals across the country. I would bake in the week, pack everything into my Skoda Fabia and set off at silly times of the morning to set up. Sometimes after only a couple of hours sleep. Adrenaline would keep me going and the feeling of people loving the cakes and money in my pouch on the way home would make the journey back all that sweeter. It’s crazy to think I have been doing this for so long. Infact Cardiff food festival I am at this weekend I have been doing for 7 years now @cardiff_events. It’s so important to love what you do and being at a busy food festival is my happy place (I mean, I am doing a leg pop for goodness sake) and an even happier place when you work it with your two of your favourite people @bart_thomas_ @anastasia.c.s here’s to a wonderful weekend and if anyone is in the Cardiff area, pop on over and grab a slice of the action. .

Today my little team of three are off to the bakereee for a training day with all of our secret things that are coming soon. How very exciting! It’s been a long three months of planning to be able to reveal everything to you guys and I feel a bit like I may pop at any minute keeping it all secret. Not long now though. .

I have spent the last few days making the ultimate ice lolly which will be dropping in your inbox on Thursday if you are subscribed to my news letter (if you are not the link is in my bio and there is even a cheeky cookie recipe on there when you subscribe to get you started) these roulade pops consists of three elements. Firstly, brownie, I mean, of course. Secondly a super easy ice cream recipe and passion fruit drizzle and thirdly, chocolate! Once they are finished they are smothered in chocolate on a stick to enjoy on the go, in the garden, at the beach, for breakfast, lunch and dinner.... I am pretty obsessed with them to be honest. I think things taste better when you not only make them yourself but also come up with the whole concept (feeling rather proud to be honest) So if you fancy giving them a go pop on over to subscribe to the news letter for the recipe this Thursday. .

Happy Sunday everyone!! After a long day yesterday speaking to the students at @seafordcollege today I’ll be mainly chilling on the beach and eating ice cream sundaes with chunks of my millionaires brownie chucked in for good measure!! This sunshine just makes my cakes so melty and gooey! Is there anything better 💕 have a lovely day in the sun everyone!
This was both fun and delicious to film! The sun is so hot it’s acting as an oven. You have heard about cooking eggs on a car bonnet but what about warming through a brownie in the sunshine and serving it with some @benandjerrys cookie Dough ice cream. Look how good it look melting in the sun. Please don’t ever leave us sunshine you make my brownies even better!! .

Blue sky’s and big news!! As far as Mondays go this has been a pretty great one! We have welcomed back an old friend in the form of a Millionaires Brownie (and he is here for good this time) and welcomed a whole load more selection boxes on my website. Both larger boxes and different selections! This comes as the first of our 3 big announcements we have coming in close succession! Go and check out the new selections on our website and if you fancy a little gift on me here is a cheeky 10% off code MILLIONAIRE10. Happy Monday everyone 💕
Picnic in a secluded little spot on the river bank!! Just complete serenity 💕 I wish every day could be this chilled, although that would definitely become very boring after a while!! I hope everyone has had a lovely Saturday so far! I have something exciting to tell you all on Monday and I can’t wait to do so ☺️ we are finally able to do something you have been asking for for a while... any guesses what it is?
It’s #nationalbringyourdogtoworkday which suites me just fine ☺️this little fur ball is loving being able to sit outside with us while we work! Today I have written the script for our little advert. It’s mad how long writing something so short can take. The trouble is getting everything you want to say into a short space. I think we have cracked it though and so we just need to bring it all together now. We have all been working so hard on everything we have coming to Ridiculously Rich By Alana and I  bursting at the seems to show you everything! New products, new ways to be in the family, new online offerings (this one is coming very soon) hope everyone has a wonderful weekend 💕
