Cirencester, United Kingdom (PressExposure) December 19, 2009 -- Lick the Spoon have employed two new shop managers and an assistant to impart Dianaâs passion for the finest origin chocolate and original recipes coupled with the best of West Country ingredients. âWe have a good teamâ, explained Diana, âand they will be working along side me so I can pass on to them the chocolate journey that I have undertaken in the last three yearsâ. Diana described how the companyâs tag line âCreating Chocolate Memoriesâ¦â came from her first experience of entering a London chocolate shop with her father as a little girl. âWe wanted to create a truly magical experience that people would remember for years to comeâ said Diana.
Lick the Spoon also specialise in Chocolate Wedding and celebration cakes and this will be an important aspect of the Cirencester shop as the business progresses. Lick the Spoon are holding a Wedding cake extravaganza week at the Cirencester shop immediately after Christmas from December 30th. âThis is the week that couples getting married in 2010 traditionally get together over the holiday period and start to plan their Wedding cakeâ explained Diana. âWe will be holding cake tastings, design consultations and will also have some fabulous chocolate cakes on displayâ.
Lick the Spoon have become renowned for their chocolate sculptural work and hope that their chocolate window displays will become a talking point. Their current display is a solid chocolate Christmas Dinner scene with a chocolate table, table cloth, plates, Christmas Crackers, pine, cones baubles and chocolate candlesticks. âWeâve had lots of people requesting to buy individual parts of the sceneâ says Diana, âso we thought it appropriate to use the sculpture to raise money for the charity for bereaved children - Winstonâs Wish, by holding a Silent auction with the winner to be announced on Christmas Eveâ.
Lick the Spoon hope that the flagship Cirencester store will become the template for future expansion. âWeâre so excited to have finally achieved our dreamâ said Diana, âwe are so proud of this shop!â.
The Lick the Spoon Wedding Cake Extravaganza starts on Tuesday December 30th 2009 at their Cirencester shop, 3 Black Jack Street, Cirencester, GL7 2AA, Telephone 01285 885 266
