11/04/2018: in dreams of price and value

The old man sat at his market stall as he had done two days each week for the past 40 years. Arranged before him, the beautiful, unique dolls he made always attracted admiring visitors. Some bought, some didn't.

On this particular day, a very large, very haughty lady admired one particularly splendid doll with an angelic face, long, flowing tresses and a lace trimmed gingham dress. When she enquired the price, the old man replied "Two hundred pounds ma'am". "Ridiculous!" The woman shrieked. "It is no more than a few pieces of wood, some paint, fabric and dishcloth string for hair", she declared, then went on "My husband is in property development and he could buy all those materials for £30, so that is what I will pay you."

She was slightly surprised when the old man replied "O.K., come back in a week.

As the week passed, the lady became more and more proud of her achievement in bartering with the old man, mentioning it to many of her friends over tea and coffee rounds in the local ladies circle.

Returning to the market on the appointed day, the old man recognised her as she approached and brought out a large box, which he handed her. On opening it, the woman was horrified to see various shaped pieces of wood, some gingham, lace, fasteners and some small pots of paint. "Where's my doll?" she asked "My daughter won't want to play with this. I paid you for a doll!". The old man smiled and replied "In the right hands, that is a doll. All you need to add is the lifetime of experience, the skill and the love for a finished product that you didn't add to your order. What you have is exactly what you paid for."

The moral of this story is that the true value of any bespoke product is greater than the sum of its component parts. The intangible elements of skill, experience, dedication to quality and the numerous costs of running a business all contribute to the final price.

28/09/2017: still time to shine

Just because autumn is here, this does not mean that cakes need to be wintery. Sometimes, your ideal cake is something completely different and BB Cuisine are here to make that happen.

This seaside cake was made for a customer who wanted to think about the beautiful weather, the shells you find on the beach and the stunning blues you see above and below. This cake was made to the requirements of the customer and each one is baked and decorated with so much care to get it just right.

Your perfect cake is not just about getting the looks of it right on the outside but the insides need to be just so too. Therefore, when you made an order with BB Cuisine, you are guaranteed to get just the right type of creative artwork on the exterior and the interior.

Get in touch with us for that piece of edible artwork now, you'll be so pleased you did.

11/05/2017: cakes aren't just for christmas

One of our customers is taking his business out on the road in a converted single decker bus as a mobile office and demonstration unit. The exercise is aimed at getting people to visit briefly and take a good look at their web site to make sure that it is "Just the Ticket".

He was telling us that in keeping with the theme, they will be issuing tickets from a vintage machine to all visitors, then drawing out a lucky number for each venue, and wanted to offer something a little unusual as a prize.

BB Cuisine to the rescue! We suggested that a delicious fruit cake, decorated with an icing bus ticket may be appropriate and different. The result is shown in the pictures, individual fruit cakes packed in presentation boxes, ribbon wrapped and sent to the lucky ticket holder at each venue.

We wish the Village Websmith good luck on the "Just the Ticket" tour and look forward to offering future prizes for more promotions.
