Organised by Apple Blossom Events, the wedding fayre was an ideal opportunity for Jade to showcase her products and raise the profile of her business. In addition to the mouth-watering cupcakes, she also makes stunning celebration cakes for weddings, birthdays, anything at all, and has already received a number of bookings to supply cakes for weddings this summer!
WOW, what a fabulous night! At the IKIC Awards Evening 2012, I'm delighted to announce that Jade's Heavenly Buns swept the board! It began confidently as Jade collected the 'Most Profit Made' award, then moved on to pick up the Key Stage 4 Winning Business award.
As an amazing and unexpected addition, I was awarded the joint first prize as Entrepreneurial Mentor 2012 for my work supporting Jade's business throughout the competition.
Finally came the big moment (cue the drum roll...) - the announcement of the IKIC Best Business 2012. "And the award goes to....Jade's Heavenly Buns!!!"
Absolutely fantastic, thoroughly deserved and came as complete recognition of Jade's immense talent and commitment to her business. She's worked incredibly hard over these last few months, and her armfuls of awards justify all her effort. I'm SOOOO proud of her!

IKIC Barnsley Big Challenge is an Enterprise Competition running across Barnsley Secondary Schools, Barnsley College and Barnsley Community Groups. It challenges young people aged 11-19 to develop their own business from an idea through to trading, leading to final awards in June each year.
I'm delighted to be involved again for the 2013 competition - but as I could never expect to top the dizzy heights of last year's success with Jade, this time I'm taking part as a judge. My duties begin in early May, and I can't wait!
