We posted a very ambiguous photograph on our Instagram/Facebook feeds last night- inviting our followers to guess what our new cushion would be.

Amazingly- LOADS of you guessed with 100% accuracy- with your Battenberg hypothesis. Great minds think alike, and all that! 

For us: Battenberg represents the ultimate childhood treat. Whether it’s the fact that it’s covered in Marzipan, that its middle is made up of pastel checkerboard chunks of sponge, or that it contains your recommended daily allowance of sugar, we’re not sure. All we know is that it’s our current studio favourite and we couldn’t be happier to be able to curl up on our sofa with a few slices.

Our Battenberg cushions are the second in our drop of cake cushions (see our store for new Fondant Fancy Cushions) and available to add to your collection for £29.50 each.

What do you think? Are you a Battenberg fanatic?

Also- don’t forget- Nikki will be in Glasgow this Sunday 1st of June as part of Love Your Clothes. Pop along to meet Nikki & learn some simple printing techniques from 12-5 at Beyond The Finish Line, Trongate.

    When I was very little, we used to live in the countryside. Highlights of my pre-school weekdays (other than Button Moon and The Flumps on TV) were the visits from the various public service vans – the library van, the fish fan, the baker’s van… The baker’s van had a small wooden drawer full of sweets, Drumsticks and those miniature wine gums and the like, from which I was allowed to choose my once-weekly treat. Then one day I went maverick and opted for an item outwith the sweetie drawer. It was a Battenberg cake. From that day on, I deviated from the sweetie drawer on a pretty regular basis. Throughout my life, I’ve rarely had Battenberg, to be honest, but every time I do, I feel it’s as much of a marzipanny wonder treat as it felt back then. Good choice for cushions, my dear!
