We love business birthdays. It’s so much fun to be part of an office celebration, to share in the excitement felt by management and staff and to have the joy of bringing the cake – the centrepiece of the party, and the talking point of the guests.
After a nice coffee and chat with Natalie Wood, MD and Linda Gummer, Owner of Letterbox Recruiting a little while ago – we came up with a great plan for this cake.
With corporate cakes, we are always keen to get the right balance between corporate and stylish. Too many business cakes just have the logo slapped on the top and not much else – and they do nothing to reflect the passion everyone feels about the company.
Natalie wanted a large cake with plenty to go round so we suggested a 2 tier to give it some height. We matched the colours of the logo with a grey marbled effect on the larger tier and the pale orange for the top. The curly stars give it even more height and a real sense of party and celebration.
We used the words RECRUITMENT, RELATIONSHIPS, RESULTS around the top tier which sum up the ethos of the company. For 15 years Letterbox has been a leading specialist recruiter of office based personnel, providing temporary, contract and permanent job opportunities across North Wales and the Wirral.
The office is right in the centre of Rhuddlan High Street and it was encouraging to see such a vibrant business at the heart of this community. On delivery day, I was invited to stay and meet James Davies MP for the Vale Of Clwyd who called by to help the celebration along. Clients and friends were assembled for a glass of fizz and a slice of cake. What a lovely welcome I received and it was lovely to meet Lynne, Alison, Miriam, Alex and Kayleigh. Such a friendly staff team who are all great colleagues and passionate about what they do.
It seems to me that Letterbox have just the right mix of professionalism, efficiency and friendliness and in just the right proportions. It was a joy to work with Natalie and Linda and delight to make their special cake.
I hope that we can stay in touch and look forward to making them an even bigger cake for their 20th birthday.
