Think Pink!

Fancie are joining forces with a select few shops in Sheffield to support Breast Cancer Awareness Day tomorrow, October 31st. We will be donating over 300 cupcakes which will be sold throughout Sheffield with all money going to Cancer Research UK.

This is a fantastic opportunity for us to work alongside Sheffield business women to raise money to help with ongoing research into Breast cancer, which will unfortunately effect 1 in 9 women in their lifetime.

So, if you see us about, dig deep and enjoy! xx

Fancie. by post!

Yes kids, you heard it here first... Fancie have branched into the world of mail order!

We have developed a range which captures the essence of our deliciously different cupcakes, but in a form that won't end up a splattered mess by the time it gets to you!! So Birthdays need never be dull again.

We are still developing the final range, but so far we have perfected Summer Strawberry, Luscious Lemon, Old Fashioned Birthdaycake and Chocolate mudcake.

This is the start of something yummy! xx

The start of a beautiful friendship...

Good news!!! In response to all your begging emails (you know who you are) Fancie now have a few select outlets in and around Sheffield, and we are absolutely cock a hoop that the first one is Cocoa on Ecclesall Road.

Kate and Anne have been keeping the people of Sheffield in fine chocolate products for some time now and our cupcakes look quite at home nestled amongst all their goodies! Its always quite an ordeal for us to part with our tiny treats, but they have assured us that they have gone to a good home and will be well looked after... Phew!

They will be a permanent fixture in the Cocoa lounge to the rear of the shop (if you haven't seen this yet, you must go in), or you can take one home to savour in private!

Pop in and say hello to the girls, choose from their HUGE range of teas, coffees and hot chocolates and sample some of Fancies finest. Ask them about the exciting events they host there too!

Nothing says it quite like... cakes!!!

Whether it's a Congratulations, I Love You, Thank you or just a Hello, nothing says "I'm thinking of you" quite like a personally designed box of scrummy cakes.

These will earn you some serious brownie points... in fact, forget the excuse for sending them, suprise someone today! xx

Fancie Pants!

Not content with baking, blogging, and generally keeping the people of Sheffield in cakes, Fancie have had time to follow in the footsteps of all the greats; Christian Dior, Vivienne Westwood... erm, Victoria Beckham (?)... yes, cake lovers, we too have turned fashion designer and created a cheeky little range for you to peruse over and then parade in!

Check us out and treat yourself!

Lots of exciting plans cooking on the Fancie kitchen table as well as in the Fancie kitchen ovens- so watch this space!!

Get your pinny off!!

So, the evenings are getting lighter, the sun keeps threatening to shine, and I can almost hear the male population clambering to prepare the Barbecue ready for the first soiree of the season...

Now I don't want your sympathy (well, just a little maybe) but this summer, rather than enjoying burnt sausages and Pimms, we will be delivering our tasty treats all over South Yorkshire (and just a little over the border too) ready for you to impress your guests- not that I'm suggesting for a minute you would pass them off as your own.... oh no!

A particular favourite for the more discerning guest is proving to be our Gourmet range- a cross between a Cupcake and a desert, these little pots will drive your guests.... well, potty (sorry!) Perfect for the poshest of parties and subdued soirees alike these little devils always dress to impress.

We are currently creating; Tiramisu, Raspberry, White Chocolate and Amaretto, Lemon Cheesecake, Banoffie and Snickerlicious and introducing new flavours all the time, so keep your eyes peeled or get in touch if you have a particular favourite that you would like Fancie to work its magic on.

The thing about these little beauties is that by the time the food is burnt *ahem* cooked and the bottles have been drained, you really don't want to be messing round with bowls of trifle or the latest chocolate creation.... Our tasty treats are delivered in their own little perfect package which they can be eaten straight out of and then tossed right in the bin- that's right, no washing up either... I know, I really am too good to you!

Priced at £6 for 4, you need never put your pinny on again... just sit back and enjoy a burnt sausage and Pimms on us! xx

Design-a-cake Parties....

OK, so here's the idea.... you have a room full of screaming darlings, all there to celebrate your particular darling's Birthday. What would you do for 30 minutes rest? Well fear not, Fancie are here to save the day.

Incorporating children's entertainment and the Birthday cake, we will be on hand to dish out and, along with your child's input, design and personalise each cake.

This can be done during the party or can be part of the entertainment... providing you with that much needed rest I mentioned!

The cakes will be freshly baked, we will arrive along with bags of sprinkles, various coloured icings (all natural of course!) and toppers which they can choose from to design their own li'l masterpiece!

So, not only will you have an interactive Birthday cake and 30 minutes rest, but you may also discover you have your very own Delia in the family!

Get in touch for more details and to book your party, you will also see us at various Summer Fetes this year spreading the Fancie word, so be sure to say hello! xx

Read all about it!!

Who would have thought that as well as making, baking and carting boxes of our little delights around the county Fancie would have time to be the hottest new Blogger in town? Is there no end to our talents I hear you ask....

Fear not, we are not about to use this as a platform to share our deepest thoughts or tout for a book deal, we just thought it was a nifty way of keeping you updated on what's going into and (more importantly) coming out of the Fancie ovens!!

So, we'll be making regular posts to keep you updated on all things Fancie, starting right now! The website is up and running... and looking great (I feel justified saying that, I had no part in getting the ideas from paper onto the screen infront of you. Thanks Martin!) Click away and sign up for regular updates and our handy little Birthday reminder- our Cupcakes are a clever little trick to easing the pain of being another year older!

So I'll be mainly using this supercool Blog to bang on about new flavours and products, and to spread the Fancie word...

Drop us a line, tell us what the occasion is (Wedding/ Birthday/ Corporate event/ Dinner party/ Bad Hair Day) and we will work our magic...

Our cakes come in all shapes and sizes, so although we love our Cupcakes as much as you do, we are also clever at making bigger creations, tell us exactly what you have in mind and we will get it to you in a jiffy!

We are currently only delivering within Sheffield and South Yorkshire, but get in touch if you aren't within the area and we'll do everything within our power to get to you... We would hate for you to miss out due to geography!

So that's it for now, keep clicking back to see whats new and in the meantime don't forget..... A little of what you Fancie does you good! xx
