Lily Loves.... Sweet Cones!

Hello everyone :D Well I have been extremely quiet on the blog front I know :( But there is a reason for that and that reason is.... SWEET AS CANDY!

Sweet As Candy is a new venture I have started. I was admiring Snowman Soup and have browsed sweet hampers many a time on websites and then it struck me... why not combine them?! It took me a few days to decide that I was definately going to go for it, I saved some money and then it was time for the trip to the wholesalers and to launch a Facebook fanpage! I guess I just thought, well if it doesnt work I just have alot of sweet to eat, and thats never a bad thing is it? hehe

So far I have launched 3 cone themes, but there are lots (and I mean LOTS) more in the pipeline. Here are some pictures of the current cones that are available.

I think they make great party bags, wedding favours, stocking fillers, or just little treats! Infact the list is endless as I can personalise the labels such as the cone below. In the new year I will be uploading examples of the personalised labels such as, Well Done on Passing Your Driving Test, Graduation, Exam Pass, Thank you Teacher, Sorry You're Leaving etc etc. I sell them for £2 each per cone with discounts for bulk orders which I feel is fair for the product they are recieving, the price of some novelty sweets in the shops is shocking!

I have started a Facebook page named Sweet As Candy for the sweet cones and am so surprised by the reaction and support from everyone on Facebook. It really has been lovely, and the page now has over 550 fans in just 2 and a half weeks! the link to the fanpage is!/pages/Manchester/Sweet-As-Candy/150812264940660?ref=ts
Hopefully that will work :D.

Let me know what you all think :D

Love Lily
