Ahead of Mother’s Day – Sunday, May 14 – the Cake Decorators Association of Broken Hill and Friends have set up a week-long stall at the Trades Hall (entry via Sulphide St), beginning this coming Monday and running until Saturday, May 13, selling all manner of arts, crafts, and baked goods.
Vicki Sladden, Publicity Officer for the Cake Decorators Association, who was thankful for the use of the historic Trades Hall to hold the stalls, told the Truth the extensive range of handmade products available to purchase meant there’d be no shortage of finding that special gift.
“Everything’s reasonably priced, we’re not here to rip anybody off. We just want to show people what we as a group can make. And we try to do novelty things that you can’t buy in the shops as well,” she said.
“We have things ranging from all these arts and crafts that Judy [Farquharson] does, we have jams and pickles, plants, decorated cakes, of course. We’ve got the freshly-made pasties – they come in on Monday – and all the home-cooked produce. We even have some gluten free cupcakes if people are interested. We’ve got Mother’s Day cards, coat hangers, cushions, hand towels, dream catchers.”
The stall will be set up at the Trades Hall (from 10am to 4pm (Monday, May 8 to Friday, May 12) and 9am to 12am (Saturday, May 13). At 12am on Saturday, a raffle will be drawn to win a Mother’s Day cake.
“If there’s anybody out there that’s interested in joining our group, if they can come and see one of us throughout the week and bring in something that they do if they do sewing, cooking, or whatever, if they come see us, we’ll see what we can do” Ms Sladden mentioned
