Edward and Irwyn are not only known for their artisan delights but also for their
honeycomb — lovingly crafted using local honey from local beekeepers, giving this friendly little kitchen that added edge knowing that they’re there to help other local businesses flourish just as well as they do.
Now this particular event is slightly cheeky, sliding in before its due week, but it is definitely worth booking in advance! The event is at the Celtic Manor, running throughout December, and is a mindboggling Willy Wonka celebration! Gorge on Wonka Bars, buttergin scones, and even a (hopefully perfected) blueberry pie!
My Chocolate promises the perfect day out for hen parties, birthdays or even just for those looking to have a good time!

Tea-REX cafe is supplied by The Chocolate Cellar. Their famous Rocky Road sundaes,
chocolate truffle cake and specialty hot chocolate drinks are now being served by the cafe. Despite being named after a dinosaur, their mark on Liverpool is definitely not likely to go extinct!
Cadbury World this weekend is hosting a thrilling and intriguing Aztec Weekend! Explore the depths of the jungle and the swirling mysteries behind Emperor Montezuma! Why not take this opportunity to also step into the factory itself?
Another seek event just outside of this week but 12th November will see a very Scottish whiskey tasting festival bringing with it also the melt-in-your-mouth variety of wee chocolates that you just can’t resist!
Chocolate Dream Oasis are a company that hire out their chocolate fountains for party use. And not just your bog standard milk/dark/white chocolate either, they also do orange and strawberry. So if you’re looking for that little extra, here’s your answer.
Choccywoccydoodah is known and beloved by all of the seaside town’s residents and tourists. It has just reopened this past Saturday after a brief maintenance period but now is back as big as ever with its bespoke cakes and gift shop!
