Background

Sue Hardy is a talented cupcake baker, creating standard and mini cupcakes in a range of mouth-watering recipes. Sue also creates a range of greeting cards, often using her own hand-made paper and cross-stitch pieces.

Adrian Hipkins is a stained glass artisan, having trained at Kingfisher Glass, who are based on Romney Marsh in Kent.  I design and create stained glass pictures that are individual and unique, taking my inspiration not only from the texture and colour of the glass, but also from the environment around me, such as nature’s wonderful displays and still life items.
 

Produce

Cup Cakes
I only use the best ingredients in all my cupcakes for delicious results.  Each one is individually hand decorated and beautifully presented with care, and with you in mind. My cupcakes are baked using free range eggs and contain no artificial ingredients or flavourings (unless specifically requested by customers). I also bake a wide range of gluten free cupcakes, together with a growing range of dairy-free cupcakes. I have achieved the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health Level 2 Food Safety in Catering qualification and my kitchen has provisionally been awarded a score of 5 (very good) in the Food Standards Agency “Food Hygiene Ratings”, pending final inspection.   

 
My prices are very competitive. Standard cupcakes - £1.30 each. (For orders above 20 standard size cupcakes please contact me as I may be able offer a discount).
Mini cupcakes - 35p each (3-4 mini-cupcakes to a standard size cupcake, creating a good mini-cupcake pick and mix).
My cupcakes would also be ideal for any occasion such as birthdays, weddings corporate events or just as a treat for someone special and I can deliver to any location in the Kent.  I also make my own fondant icing decorations for the tops of my cupcakes, and these are often for sale at the events we attend (please see our “Events” page for dates). Please feel free to look at my recipes and make enquiries on our 'Contact Us' page and I will do my best to meet your order.

Stained Glass
Apart from pictures, I create stained glass decorated mirrors and a range of fun sun-catchers, so ensuring I cater for every pocket. I also take commissions for work, and examples can be found on the Commissions page.

I use the traditional lead came method to create most of my designs, together with the copper-foil ‘Tiffany style’ method when needing to create more delicate designs. I use different types of glass in my work, as well as a vast range of styles and colours - mainly Antique Cathedral or Spectrum. The Antique Cathedral tends to be my favourite as it has a slightly rough texture, with seeds (miniature air bubbles) and reams (creases) within the glass. All the lead came pieces are sealed with leaded light cement, so making them suitable for both interior or exterior use, and finished with a black patina then a black polish to give a lustrous shine.  Finally, all my pieces come complete with hanging fixings.
