We've been busy in the kitchen the last couple of weeks working on various projects. In addition to our everyday baking for markets and order. It's safe to say its all a go-go (minus the sequined hot pants) here at KookyHQ. Of late we have been doing a lot of bespoke cakes for various clients.
I was sat in a planning meeting with the bakery buyer at Selfridges a few months ago and she randomly drop into a non related conversation 'How Do you Feel About Wally?' I paused and my mind went into overdrive thinking what on earth is she asking me? Is there a Wally that I should have a strong opinion about? I replied with a rather middle of the road response, in my head I was thinking of Disney's Wall-e. My inability to have a poker face let me down and she caught me out for not having a clue about this Wally chap.
After she explained him to me, I had my eureka moment 'Bingo, you mean Waldo' Explaining that in America he was called Waldo, which lead to a bit of laughter and some serious brainstorimng.
Where's Walley (or Waldo depending on what continent you hail from) is turning 25 years old this year. We think he's not aged a bit. To celebrate, Selfridges are doing a Where's Wally pop-up shop and commissioned us to create a limited edition cupcake to mark the occasion.
Tah Dah.. Presenting our limited edition Where's Wally Red Velvet Cupcake which is exclusively at Selfridges Oxford Street till the 25th of September.
