Happy Birthday David & 30 years of business
30 January 2015
Towards the end of last year I (Hayley in Marketing) was tasked with the top secret mission of organising an elaborate cake for David Salisbury's birthday which would also coincide with thirty years of the business. Together with our Sales Director, we decided to aim high and see what world famous chocolaterie, Choccywoccydoodah, could do for us. This involved a brief and basic design of what we wanted and a tasting session in the London store.
I have to say, the store was amazing. I felt under pressure choosing the flavours - I had to choose two out of five, plus a filling. Luckily (for everyone else in the office!) I was able to bring some samples back with me. Even though I had already chosen the flavours, my trusty colleagues confirmed my choice. Chocolate and lemon cakes (one for each layer) plus a champagne truffle filling for both parts.
The unveiling of the cake was during our annual sales dinner and it was a complete surprised to David, of course there was a rendition of 'Happy Birthday' too! The detail in the cake was flawless - the more you looked at it, you would see something different. The cake made it's way back to head office, where it was then cut and distributed to all members of staff.
