So ... "Eat, Drink & Be Scary!!!" (Anon)

Happy 75th Birthday Lolo Rene!


I always get these amazing calls from loved ones who really care about including everyone in the family when it comes to a great celebration.

Case in point - the beautiful Joy called and emailed me to ask about cupcakes for her dad's 75th birthday.  But her thoughts were also with her nephew who had multiple allergies and has normally missed out on the festivities.  This is what I call love.  Someone that gives enough of their time to research so that she can see her nephew enjoy treats with everyone else is a special person.

Sensitive tummies are so lucky to have people like Joy who care about bringing everyone together  - I'm one of those people who has many tummies of steel that care about making me happy - and I am constantly blessing my lucky stars that they still love me despite these issues.  But they don't just love me - they strive to make me feel included and loved.  This is what Joy did for her nephew today.

I'm so encouraged when I hear stories like Joy's - and delivering this to her today completely made my day and was the absolute highlight!

Happy 75th Birthday Lolo Rene! :)

Lots of love xo

Ava's 6th Birthday

Little Ava is an inspiration to us all.

On her 6th birthday - she wrote a letter to everyone invited to her birthday party and asked that rather than buying her presents would her guests help her raise money for The Wayside Chapel instead.  I have yet to meet a little youngster with such an awareness and such a spirit of generosity.  Her mother is obviously doing an amazing job!

I was lucky enough to play a part in the birthday festivities for Ava this year.

First - I made a special trip to her school to deliver customised individual choc chip cookies adorned with the name of each classmate, all wrapped in cellophane and tied with a sweet ribbon!


Then on her Madagascar themed birthday party that weekend – 100 rainbow cupcakes were on the agenda!

Everything I made for Ava was gluten free, dairy free, yeast free, egg free and vegan – to cater for everyone in her class so that nobody missed out.

It was an honour to do this for this special young lady.


And here is the beautiful letter she wrote to everyone invited to her party - it honestly gives me faith in our future.  I've just learnt a great lesson from a 6 year old! I wonder what else she will do for the world as she grows up - I can't wait to find out! 


We love you Ava!  

Lots of love from Miss Lulu xo

Malachi



On Saturday I met a very special boy called Malachi who has a sensitive tummy just like me - but with a few extra no-no's like seafood, nuts and egg.

His mum communicated before they came along and we had a great chat about what he could and couldn't eat - quite simply, she is just the most devoted and beautiful mother.

The highlight of my day was seeing the wonder in his eyes when I opened his own special box of treats.

This is why I love my job!

His mum sent me this photo and wrote
"I'm so glad I found you! It's wonderful you can bring a bit of magic into his life. I'm really grateful". 

And with that - a tear of happiness and a feeling that I made the right choice to start this whole crazy adventure.

Thank you Malachi!

Maria & Adam are getting married!


I have to apologise to my blog readers - I have completely neglected my blog and have only been updating my facebook, twitter & instagram!   I was sucked into the social media ether - it's the instant feedback that is so enticing and one thing I only just realised is that people are often checking my blog too!  So may I offer huge apologies - Miss Lulu is here and back to share all her adventures more regularly!

Since I last spoke - there have been so many lovely baking stories I've had the privilege of being a part of - so over the next few weeks I'll be talking about them one by one :)

This week for example - is going to be a massive week for Maria & Adam - who are getting married this Saturday!  Hooray!  When I met Maria for the first time I was taken by her genuine kindness and sincerity.  Once I met her lovely hubby-to-be as well - I quickly saw how much they clearly love eachother.  It's so beautiful to be a part of this magnificent day in their lives - it's an honour and a privilege!

So above is a picture of some mini cupcakes I did for her hens party - when I delivered the cupcakes I could see just how much her family adore her - as the house was decorated with so much fun and frivolity!  This Saturday is going to be a special, amazing day for all of them - I could sense the gorgeous energy building already!

I can't wait to bake for them this Saturday - it will be so so much fun!

Lots of love! Miss Lulu xo
