Logo biscuits to launch a new cruise ship

We’ve had a really busy October here at the bakery with lots of orders for corporate biscuits. We’ve baked, iced, wrapped & shipped just under 17,000 biscuits, our busiest month ever!

Our biggest order this month and our biggest order to date was for some branded biscuits for holiday company Thomson Tui, who are a fellow Luton based business.  The team at Tui were looking for a fun, yummy branded gift to give out to all employees as part of their celebrations around the launch of the new Marella Cruise liner.

Tui ordered just over 12,000 biscuits, each to be iced with the new Marella Cruise branding. The order was fairly last minute and we had around 10 working days from order sign off to get all the biscuits baked and packed and dispatched to Thompson Tui locations around the UK.

The team at Tui went for a simple but classic design for their logo biscuits, with a simple white icing, with the lovely new Marella Cruises branding.  Due to the commercially sensitive nature of the PR / product launch, we agreed to sign an NDA, which is common practice for projects of this nature. So naturally, all the work was carried out with the utmost secrecy and discretion.

We had lots of fun visiting the various Tui locations in / around Luton Airport. And after many long days and late nights baking and packing biscuits, I have to confess to feeling the need for some holiday sunshine and trip abroad somewhere sometime soon!  Visiting the Tui offices really put me in the holiday mood.

We had some fantastic feedback from the Tui team “Just wanted to say thank you for the delivery today, the biscuits looked great and we’ve heard some really positive comments…”

And lots of love for the biscuits on social media too!

This is the single biggest order we’ve done to date and at times slightly overwhelming, but a fantastic opportunity to work with a fellow Luton business and also to have an opportunity to really scale up and see how the bakery could cope with such a large order to be turned around in such as short timescale. I am super proud of how the team pulled together to make this happen.

And in the busy run up to Christmas I’m looking forward to getting stuck into lots more corporate orders so if you’re on the hunt for corporate christmas gifts, or logo biscuits for your Christmas events, gifting etc then do drop us a line via our branded biscuits enquiry form. We’d love to hear from you!

Biscuits for SEAT Cars Track Back Campaign

SEAT branded biscuits nila holden

We loved making biscuits for SEAT cars  recently.  The Sales Development Team at SEAT contacted us to see if we could help with biscuits for an upcoming campaign they were launching with their dealerships.

The team were launching Track Back a campaign focusing on ensuring efficient Lead Generation and Management and improving response times within their dealerships, and were looking to for us to make logo biscuits and to ship them to 120 of their dealerships across the country.

It was clear from the outset that some logo / branded biscuits featuring the SEAT & Track Back logo’s would work well. But the sales development team wanted to come up with something a bit more exciting and memorable to tie in with the key messages from the campaign.

We did some work to look at what kinds of phrases and text from the campaign would fit well on the biscuit size & shape we had in mind. In the end we decided on a set of 10 biscuits in a gift box for each dealership, a mix of square and round biscuits with logos and some with words stamped in them. All presented in a lovely gift box.

And then some with the Track Back branding for staff back at the SEAT HQ.  The SEAT / Track Back branding was a dream to work with and the final biscuits looked great – I hope you’ll agree!

After baking and decorating the biscuits, we had a busy morning in the bakery packing up all 120 parcels, each with a gift box and including a letter from the SEAT team explaining to the dealerships that the Track Back Campaign had launched and what was enclosed in the packet.

We had some great feedback from the team at SEAT  “Hello Nila, I just want to say a massive thank you for the beautiful biscuits. We are over the moon with them and they have gone down a treat…!”

We have since signed up to be a preferred supplier to the Seat / Volkswagen group and look forward to making many more biscuits for projects and campaigns across the Audi, Skoda, VW & Seat brands.

Bus biscuits for Here East’s new shuttle bus.

here east bus biscuits nila holden2

We were really excited to make some logo biscuits for Here East recently.  Here East covers 1.2 million square feet in London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, and brings together business, tech, media, education and data in the pursuit of innovation, surrounded by parks, canals, housing & leisure facilities.

Here East is home to established names and nimble startups alike. “Radicals, reformers, visionaries, industry heroes and like-minded locals – they’re all part of our East London heritage and its geography of innovation…”

We were commissioned by creative design agency We Design who in turn is working directly with Here East, to make some biscuits to launch a new shuttle bus route.

There was some stunning branded artwork for the campaign which gave us a lot of beautiful content to work with. 

Screen Shot 2017-05-06 at 22.58.47

In discussions with Naomi, project manager from We Design, we discussed the xxxxx and came up with a simple but sleek design for the biscuit artwork. We felt a rectangular shaped biscuit would work well and would be lightly reminiscent of a bus shape.

We made up biscuits with 3 slightly different designs – always something to consider when thinking about branded biscuits. You’ll be keen to get maximum exposure & sharing on social media, and having posts, retweets etc with a few different images being shared is always really good and definitely something to aim for.

Here are the biscuits all wrapped up and ready to dispatch. Don’t they look great?

We’ve had some really great feedback from Naomi at We Design:

“Hi Nila, I just wanted to say a really big thank you for the bus biscuits, the client was really happy with them and has messaged me this morning to let me know they are going down a storm on the Here East site…!  Thanks again, it has been great working with you on this project!

More than just corporate logo biscuits! Sophie provided us with some beautiful artwork which we printed onto edible icing sheets.

We made some beautiful fashionista biscuits for Luella’s Bridal recently for a special launch event. Luella’s was celebrating the launch of the Charlotte Mills Shoe Boutique and commissioned some shoe biscuits and logo biscuits.

The lovely Rachel at Luella’s Bridal provided us with an image of the iconic Beatrice Bow shoe (how beautiful??) to base the biscuit designs on.

We also made some logo biscuits using the Luella’s Bridal logo and branding. Rachel provided artwork and other stationery so we could get the colours just right.

Biscuits for the Suffolk Coastal District Council Staff Values launch

scdc-corporate-biscuits-nilaholden4

We really loved working on this corporate biscuit commission from Suffolk Coastal District Council.

The Council recently launched its staff values and wanted a little something to give out to staff as part of the launch.

The Council provided us with beautiful artwork for each of the values: truthful, united, good value, dynamic & proud. All values chosen by the staff themselves!

We then made up biscuits with edible printed toppers.  The finished biscuits looked so bright and cheerful..!

Beautiful Biscuits for Berin Made

 

nila-holden-corporate-biscuits-berin-made-book8

We were super chuffed when the lovely Erin Hung from Berin Made asked us to get involved with the #Berinmade Book Launch.

Berin Made was founded upon a love of fanciful illustrations and beautifully crafted lettering resulting in beautiful paper goods for the loved and the cherished. The studio specialises in stunning stationery, custom stamps and wedding paper goods.

Erin was putting together some Thank You baskets/hampers for sponsors and friends and was looking for some special sweet treats to include.

Erin shared some sneak peaks from the book with us, and if they are anything to go by, the book is going to be stunning!

Inspired from the stunning images from the book, we came up with gem biscuits, sweet biscuits and some branded logo biscuits using the beautiful hand drawn font featured in the book.

Mini Gingerbread Houses for Fortnum & Mason’s Ice Cream Parlour

The bakery was filled with the delicious aroma of Christmas spice this week as we were making gingerbread houses for these amazing gingerbread sundaes served at The Parlour at Fortnum & Mason.

fortnums ice cream parlour nila holden

This sundae is inspired by the Hansel & Gretel house and is made up of four ‘deconstructed’ sides of gingerbread filled with all manner of delicious ice cream treats, sweets & sauces.  Simply stunning!

For the order, we baked hundreds of mini gingerbread pieces – four for each house. Here are the side pieces on sheets of baking parchment waiting to go into the oven.

Once all the pieces had been cut and baked, we started the delicate task of assembling the shell of the houses. It’s tricky work constructing gingerbread and takes time and patience and light fingers!

 

 

Once they had dried overnight, the houses were carefully packed and shipped off to the parlour at Fortnum’s for the chef’s to work their magic.  We were really chuffed to play our small part in creating these delightful and delectable desserts!

If we’ve inspired you to turn your hand to making some mini gingerbread houses then you might like our mini gingerbread house kit – each kit comes with all the pieces you need to construct the mini houses already baked. Great fun and super yummy tasting too! We have lots of other gingerbread gifts available too.

If you’re a retailer looking to source gingerbread biscuit products for either your foodservice or food / gift halls then do drop us a line via our wholesale iced biscuits enquiry form and we’d be happy to send you a copy of our Wholesale Christmas Iced biscuit brochure.

Biscuits to launch Harrod’s Summer 2016 Sale

At the Nila Holden Bakery, we have a lot of expertise in creating 3D biscuits, based on our experience of making our unique 3D biscuit birdhouses and christmas gingerbread houses so we were super excited when Harrod’s commissioned us to make some 3D biscuits to launch their Summer 2016 Sale.

Together we came up with the idea of making some 3D replicas of their iconic green bag all made entirely of biscuit and completely edible. This coincided nicely with the installation of a giant Harrods Bag outside the store, and tied in with  one of the campaign hashtags #mygreenbag

Each bag was made up of 5 individual biscuits, beautifully iced and carefully constructed as you can see in the video below:

We also decided to fill the bags with some mini fashion treats including dress, shoe and lipstick biscuits.

And here’s the finished result!

 

Don’t they look amazing? We were so pleased with the finished biscuits, they certainly provided the wow factor the sale launch and proved a real hit on social media alongside the smallerHarrods Bag & fashion biscuits we made!
