The beginning of September, for many, signals the frantic rush of getting back into the school routine and, for the kids at least, wistful thinking about the summer holidays! I hope you have all managed to enjoy a break before the autumn sets in.

With the wedding season still in full swing, during September, Renshaw have a variety of ready to use icing at special prices, perfect for all your creative needs.

To get your creative juices flowing and to take your mind off what might be around the corner, as well as the chance to win a holiday voucher Dawn Foods have created a spooktacular Halloween recipe along with some great freebies to give away when you buy any five of their bases or frostings. We are also taking pre-orders for a range of muffins, donuts and cookies, specially created for the Halloween celebrations by Dawn Foods, so make sure you order yours early to avoid disappointment. Plus if you are looking for Halloween decorations, we have a great selection available on our WH September offers page.
