Now you and your children can have fun reading and baking together with the latest book from beloved sugar artist Maisie Parrish.
‘The Little Red Van’ is a colourful children’s book that follows the adventures of Maisie Dough and the Little Red Van itself. This short story tells of how Maisie Dough bakes a delicious Red Van cake and then brings it to life to help out Mummy and Daddy Dough.
Not only does the book have a wonderful story to keep your children engaged but also finishes with a tutorial on how to recreate the Little Red Van cake yourself. Complete with full instructions on how to decorate your cake. The tutorial provides hours of fun for the whole family to enjoy and at the end, you have a delicious cake that is perfect for children’s birthday parties and other celebrations.
The cake can also be customised with different colours and features to suit any occasion. It also requires minimum tools and equipment so even if you are just a novice baker, you can still create a professional looking cake.
The book itself is beautifully illustrated with pictures on each page to match the story. The pictures feature all of the characters in Doughtown, from Maisie Dough herself to Biscuit the dog and really capture the imagination.
Maisie Parrish is an internationally renown Sugarcraft artist with twelve bestselling craft books to her name along with a range of decorating products such as the Doughtown Mat. This book is a great addition to your collection and provides a fun activity for the kids.
To safeguard our staff and adhere to social distancing we have less staff currently packing in our warehouse. This means that unless you order for next day delivery, your order may not be dispatched the same day.
Our couriers tell us that they are experiencing very large delivery volumes (akin to Black Friday levels) as everyone is now restricted to shopping online.
This means you should expect around 48 hours added to standard delivery times.
90 - 98% of Next Day deliveries are arriving on time.
Our couriers are all working with reduced resources to safeguard their staff which we totally respect.
In short, please allow a little extra time to receive your order (it'll be worth it, we promise!) We're very thankful to the lovely couriers and our Warehouse Heroes working extra hard to deliver happy mail to us in these unprecedented times.
