Yes, Hackney Homemade was fun and I've enjoyed selling my wares at this market for the past two months. I've met some great, inspiring people who have broadened my expertise and more importantly all the people who bought my stuff and gave it a passionate thumbs up have given me the boost I need to unleash myself to the wider community. I'm in the process of acquiring a new site, so be prepared! My little plantain set up, in both guises (sweet and hot) is moving on up! It'll be interesting to see how my products go down with a new crowd, and while I'm doing something altogether a bit niche, I believe it's that very reason that brought people over to my stand; the coconut yam biscuits were the best sellers week after week, which I'm pretty proud as it was quite a surprise initially. The show stoppers were a tie between supermalt brownies - dense, dark and sexy - and the plantain cupcakes with ginger frosting. I'm toying with some new recipes for my next venture that I'm excited about, so when everything's set and up and I'm raring to go, I'll let you all know where you can find me and my little red canopy. Bye for now.
