Wow! It has been a busy month here at Allergy Towers. I have been jumping through hoops, like an overexcited collie in an agility competition. I am really pleased to say that I passed my Level 2 in Food Hygiene and Handling. We also passed our Food Standards Agency inspection, and got the top grade (5, very good).
We have been testing lots of vegan, gluten free cakes, including a gin cake with tonic icing that I felt the need to test extensively. Our testing panel have been generous with their time and taste buds, and supportive. Yesterday, we delivered our first batch to Cornflower Wholefoods, Brightlingsea, Essex, UK. I don’t know how well the cakes will sell, but we are going to give it our best shot.
The next stage will be about fulfilling our whole purpose. We’ll be looking at developing relationships with local organisations so we can offer work-related learning to autistic young people.
It’s all really exciting, bit scary, but I am looking forward to seeing what happens over the next few months…
