Let them eat cake!

1 Dec

Our Mary Berry event last month went down a storm! Loads of our customers came in to get a copy of one of her books signed; we even sold out of the  Mary Berry Baking Bible.

The Nomad staff were very pleased to find that lots of people had brought cakes along too! Emma’s millionaire shortbread was my personal favourite, but there was some staunch competition from the rest, especially these delicious little fairy cakes covered in pink and green glitter.

For two and a half hours, the shop was packed with cake-lovers, waiting for the chance to ask Mary to sign their well-loved collections of her recipes or gifts for loved ones. There was much mmmmh-ing and nommm-ing as people’s baking triumphs were passed around.

It was such an honour to have Mary in the shop and she flattered us by doing a little bit of Christmas shopping in-store too.

After such a success, we’re very excited about our next events. As winners of the Telegraph Book Club Event Tour, we’ll be hosting an evening with Ross Raisin, author of God’s Own Country. He’ll be here with the Telegraph’s Book Club Chair, Genevieve Fox, talking about his newest novel Waterline on Friday the 9th of December

The very next day, Sarah Raven will be in store to discuss her gorgeous new book, Wild Flowers. Join us at 11am, Saturday the 10th of December to hear her share some of her gardening and cookery secrets!
