Okay – so we’re late into August now. But ya never know, summer can have a last hurrah yet afore it disappears over the lowering horizon and the only big round orange thing we’re looking at is a pumpkin. But on the off chance that we get some dog days of summer, let’s have a look at our summer cutter collection. After all, there’s still time for a baking hot summer! Oh yeah!
The summer of 2020 has, for many of us, been about staycationing or holidaying in the UK. And – despite rumours to the contrary they’re not the same thing! A staycation is quite literally what it says. You’re on holiday from work but you stay at home. Otherwise known as going to R Gate. Whereas, if you pack a suitcase and get on a coach, or a train or, as in our case, get the campervan on the road – that’s a holiday. The thing is, thanks to a virus whose name we’re all now a mite fed-up of hearing – who knows if getting abroad will be any easier or safer next summer? It’s by no means guaranteed.
So! Embrace the great British holiday and have a look at this cookie cutter selection. Almost every element of the British seaside scene you can think of is here – the only thing missing is the fish and chips. And a visit to your local chippy will sort that out.
Most of our cutters work well with felt and Play-Doh or air-dried clay. So, the creative amongst could make a super seaside special with these cutters. And the kids could have some summer baking fun that’ll remind them of their UK holiday or day trip. A fun complement to any books your youngsters might have that feature the British seaside – or any aspects of it.
Speaking of the UK holiday scene, SED HQ is now returned from its UK holiday stomping around Scotland in our camper van. And that’s not at all a tenous reason to mention our camper van stamp.
Okay – so you’re yearning for a touch of the tropical and/or the splash of the surf but Covid prevents. Yeah – it sucks right? But hey – small consolation we know – but you can at least make a totally tropical scene in baked good form with these cutters.
We’ve got the palm tree, we’ve got the pineapple, we’ve got the shades, we’ve got the surf board and we’ve got the baggies a la the Beach Boys! It’s all here for a surfing safari – well all bar the surf itself.
So – yeah – get the oven hotter than July, get some surf tunes or reggae on Spotify and party on!
Now we’re back from hols we’ll once again fill our Instagram feed with our dodgy icing efforts – and more besides. So, do check us out there. Or, if you’re more social on Facebook – you’ll find us on there too.
