Get Ready with Freddie Cousin Brown at Pandora HQ

freddy cousin brown bloggers freddy my love

I was so excited recently to visit Pandora HQ in Oxford Street for a Get Ready with Me event with blogger Freddie Cousin Brown. My daughter is a huge Freddie My Love fan and as soon as she heard about the event she begged me to get tickets as an early birthday present and well, I couldn’t refuse.

So on a Saturday evening in May we headed off to the flagship Pandora store on Oxford Street, and on arrival were greeted by a short queue of attendees all faithfully wearing shades of pale pink (Freddie’s favourite colour).

We were greeted by the lovely Pandora staff (all also wearing pink) and were given a gift box with a preloaded Pandora gift card in a gorgeous ribbon tied gift box, to exchange in the store (squeee!).

We headed upstairs where the hospitality from the Pandora team couldn’t have been more amazing, they had laid on lots of lovely touches – a cocktail bar, sweetie buffet, manicures, hair styling.

Freddie did a meet and greet. I have to say she is so lovely and super stunning in real life and I found myself coming over all fan girl too, much to my daughters dismay!

Later, Freddy did a really interesting and useful Q&A, outlining her top tips for getting ready in the morning, her favourite make up brands and how to stay stunning looking all day.

Freddy’s family – Mum, Dad & sister Coco were also at the event and it was lovely to meet them and chat about Freddy’s amazing success and rise to fame over the last couple of years.

After a few hours of pampering, indulging and chatting, we headed down to the store where we exchanged our gift cards for more Pandora goodies. I couldn’t immediately see anything I wanted to buy. As a baker, I tend not to wear too much jewellery, but my daughter was more than happy to make use of my gift card.

Back at the Nila Holden bakery, I was inspired to make some pretty logo biscuits with the gorgeous Pandora branding – including of course some pretty pink themed biscuits!

My daughter asked me to make some biscuits for Freddy and her younger sister Coco which we gave to them at the event. Some pink (of course!) loveheart biscuits for Freddy and unicorn and rainbow biscuits for Coco.

All in all, we had an amazing time at the event – huge thanks to Freddy and the Pandora team..!

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..!

Corporate biscuits for the Fussy Shopper

corporate biscuits fussy shopper nila holden3

We were so excited when we were contacted by the lovely Sophie at the Fussy Shopper recently.  Sophie was looking for some corporate biscuits to send out to customers.

The Fussy Shopper offers personal shopping concierge and corporate gifting services, focusing on the luxury goods sector, and is a a trusted re-seller of Hermès products (be still my beating heart!).

Screen Shot 2016-08-05 at 17.29.21

The brief for the biscuits was to recreate a shopping bag in cookie form, a little like the biscuit bag cookies we made for Harrods recently, but with the Fussy Shopper branded colours and logo.

As we are just as particular and ‘fussy’ (pun intended!) about branding, corporate colours and logos we worked hard to come up with just right colour and design, offering Sophie a number of colourways and options to choose from.

In the end, the client Sophie went with the a shade of teal blue with black piped royal iced accents.

The client was super chuffed with her biscuits! If you are a Fussy Shopper customer, be sure to look out for these little beauties on your shopping travels.

Biscuits for the launch of Harrods Summer Sale 2016

nila holden harrods sale biscuits6

There’s only one Harrods Sale or so the slogan goes.  So we were really excited when the iconic Knightsbridge store approached us to chat about a special biscuit commission for the launch of their 2016 Summer Sale

The Harrods Corporate Affairs team were looking to source some biscuits to giveaway as tasty gifts for the first 200 people through the doors on Sale Opening Day, and also something a bit special to send to key press & PR contacts in the lead up to the Sale.

Together, we came up with the idea of making biscuit versions of the iconic Harrods Green Bags to coincide the installation of a giant Harrods Bag outside the store, and to tie in with the #mygreenbag hashtag.

The team were also keen to come up with something really special to send to key press contacts and came up with the idea of a 3D version of the bag with some sleek haute couture inspired fashion biscuits. Click here to read more about the Biscuit 3D bags for Harrods.

One of Harrod’s key stipulations was that all the icing would need to be in natural colouring.  With such dark colours, mainly Harrod’s green, and the red & black for the fashion biscuits, this was challenging but we managed to overcome with this with help from our friends at Knightsbridge PME.

And here they are – Harrods green bags with Chanel inspired handbag biscuits, Louboutin inspired shoe biscuits and YSL inspired lipstick biscuits. And some dress biscuits!

And here’s a close up!

A huge thanks to the Corporate Affairs Team at Harrods for selecting us to work with them on this exciting commission.

World Kissing Day 2016 – biscuits for Benefit Cosmetics

 

Nila holden lip biscuits for benefit cosmetics1

It’s World Kissing Day 2016 today and to celebrate, our lovely client Benefit Cosmetics commissioned us to make some beautiful lip biscuits!

The idea behind the World Kissing Day is to remind people of the simple pleasures associated with kissing. As I’m sure most of us would agree, kissing can be an enjoyable experience and is a lovely expression and experience of intimacy or love.

Whether it’s a kiss from a husband or boyfriend, or child or a quick bisous from friends, kisses are thought to have many benefits for our physical and emotional health. From reducing stress and high blood pressure, to boosting up your happy hormones.

If you’re heading down Benefit’s London Boutiques in Carnaby Street, Covent Garden, Spitalfields or Islington, be sure to look out for these yummy treats.

Here’s a quick (if slightly shaky!) video of the iced biscuits drying in the bakery earlier this week.
