Straight after the #SBS win my twitter feed went potty! I gained around 200 new followers and new face book likes. I also gained some new customers with an increase in web sales. And a whole lot of people licking their lips over my marshmallows. A real buzz indeed!
I began life as a sweet toothed person! I always liked marshmallows and as an adult my kids would often buy me a bag (Daddy was in charge of buying presents). Then one day my husband and I switched on the TV and I became a marshmallow maker!! Well, not quite like that, but on the TV was an American show and they were making marshmallows in different flavours. It was incredible and I wanted to eat them immediately. I set to work in my kitchen. Two years later here I am with my own artisan marshmallow business and recognition from Theo Paphitis.
