Really do love this time of year - warmer weather, longer days - it all just feels so full promise :)
The winter was a slightly scaled back one for us at Happy Daisy with the Baby Daisies taking a much needed turn in the front seat of life but things here are picking up a pace again now with us returning to Gloucester Quays monthly Food & Craft Market, House of Veg & Dean Farm Trust events and hopefully we'll see us return to an Absolutely Fabulous event or two too!
Offerings wise, we are determined to crack the gluten free pastry and are Beevering away developing new pie flavours and other savoury delights while team sweet are Cruising to glory with a mighty fine cake collection too! All items are available for collection or delivery (often free within 6 miles of Quedgeley!) and lots of our goodies can be posted (within the UK) too!
Did you know we also offer catering? Be it a large finger buffet, a lasagne for a family dinner or an elaborate wedding cake - we pride ourselves on doing our very best to meet your individual needs wherever possible.
Wonder what else 2019 might have in store... Watch this space and see ;)...
Big love Daisies xxx

Here at Happy Daisy we like to try new flavours and combinations - whenever time allows!
Not always do they work out - we've been trying to perfect a 'Bean & Lentil Stew' filling for the longest time and you wouldn't believe how many combo's our Emma goes through to get her cakes just right!
All our inspiration comes from you - our lovely Daisies though - we love that you share your ideas with us and entrust them with us to do what we can! Our latest is what is pictured - a 'Mac'n'Cheeze' pie - it is still a work in progress - the flavour is all there - just need to work on the balance between it not being too dry - or so saucey you just get soggy pastry! But we are promising to have it good to go at the next Gloucester Quays Food & Craft Market 6th & 7th July - so if you are in the area - do pop along to be among the first to try it!!
Recently we have launched Giant Cupcakes - which are basically mini versions of the Celebration cakes and every bit as indulgent and delicious! Our sausage rolls have also been quick to find a place in your hearts haha!
Coming up next will hopefully be a quiche on the savoury side - while Emma and Paul are working on a custard tart! Watch this space...

So far, most of Happy Daisy's business has been coming from local people placing orders for home delivery and other local businesses stocking our goodies.
We decided that as we approach our one year anniversary, that we really wanted to try and make our products as accessible as possible to everyone - as not everyone who enjoys Happy Daisy food lives within a 6mile radius - or can get to their most local stockist on delivery day!
With this in mind we've worked really hard to get the postal system up and running - which has proved no easy task with fresh produce - but now with only using Royal Mail difficulties (touch wood!) are much reduced :).
The other thing we have been doing is securing a regular slot at the Gloucester Quays Food & Craft Market which you can see in our picture above as it was our first one last weekend. It was so lovely seeing so many familiar faces and to meet so many new people too. We received so much fabulous feedback - we really do love you guys!!
We're at lots of events over the coming months - our website and facebook are kept pretty up to date with where you can find us - next up is VegFest - scary and exciting all rolled into one haha - but please do come and say hi if you're there :)

We here at TeamDaisy have always loved the idea of sweet cones as party bags and thank you presents etc - but have never found anyone who makes them suitable for everyone - and so Happy Daisy sweet bags were born!
We've been playing around with the contents and whilst our combined brood of 7 have been delighted in trialing our experimental efforts of mix and presentation - their teeth and dentist will thank us for 'getting it' haha.
We currently have three different sizes, each with a choice of goodies within so all tastes, budgets and bellies can be catered for!
We hope you enjoy them as much as we do :)
