A New Website. A New Blog – What To Expect!

Hi, everyone! Welcome to our new website!

We are still tinkering with the design and a few bits and pieces but we thought we would give you guys a little head start on what’s to come from our end.

What To Expect From Our Blog

In the coming months, we will be posting regularly and we hope to provide all our faithful customers with:

  • baking tips and useful cake related information.
  • recipes that we find on the Internet during our own research.
  • special offers and promotions.
  • useful tips on gluten-free & sugar-free baking.

What To Expect From Our Website

On our website, we are currently implementing a way to view and order whole cakes online. This will make it a lot easier for you to view our complete collection of cakes and to order them quicker with an easy checkout method.

We are also incorporating a newsletter which you can sign up for. We will send out a monthly newsletter to keep you up to date with any new cakes we have added to our portfolio, alongside any special offers or promotions we may have running.

We are also getting better at regularly updating our gallery with pictures of garden and pictures of our cakes.

Why Are We Doing This?

As I am sure you are aware, we are a simple and small family business. We do not have any fancy bells and whistles – just CAKE and good old fashioned hard work. This means we are a bit behind on the old Internet thing and we are very aware that it will benefit everyone involved if we were to interact a little bit more with our awesome customer base.

This will allow us to:

  • find out what cakes YOU want us to make.
  • get more feedback on how we can improve your experience when you visit us.
  • discuss and exchange cake recipes from all over the world.
  • exchange cake inspiration from different cultures and influences.

We Want To Hear From You!

Please leave a comment below with any suggestions you may have for our website. Let the ideas roll – anything is up for discussion.

    All sounds very good, would it also be possible to put some pictures of feeders & their visitors as well.

    Thank you for all your hard work & lovely cake & coffee ?

      Hi Ann, We will be putting up posts about the birdies and squirrels as well.

      I am hoping to get some sort of live feed up on the feeders as well, in HD, so you can see the squirrels live at certain times of day. Still in the planning stages.

    Congratulations on your new website- looking forward to your new posts & recipes 🙂
    My family and I have been visiting The Potting Shed for years now, and its our favorite place for a treat when we are in the Highlands.
    Hoping to see some red squirrels when we are up for Easter 2017.

    Like the new website and your blog. Cake and garden galleries are excellent. Your peanut cake is still top on my list but many, many more to try!! So good to have such beautiful gardens and tea room, with yummy cakes, so near!

    Good luck with your new blog. What a good idea. When do you close for the season and do we have to book now or is that starting next year?

      Hi Penny,

      We close for the season on the last Sunday of October (29th). The new booking system will start next season, from the 1st March.
