Hi! I'm Eve and I run A Kind Mama Vegan Bakery from my little house in Greater Manchester. I bake & send out hundreds of cakes every week to people all over the country. I started A Kind Mama when I was on maternity leave with my baby (who is now nearly three!) and in that time it has gone from strength to strength. I started out selling cakes at my local market and now send cakes to every part of the UK - and even to people in Europe! I sell on my own website, Not On The High Street, Yumbles & Etsy.

In October last year, I ran a little crowdfunding campaign on here to raise funds so I could buy a new oven & help me with my workload. Well, I've only got busier and busier and now it's time to move out of my kitchen & dining room, and into a real proper workspace. 

I've found a unit to rent in the heart of Cheadle, but to say it needs some work doing to it would be the understatement of the year! Currently we have a shell that needs a fully working kitchen, plumbing, new flooring and general decorating. I also need ANOTHER oven to keep up with demand!

The lease starts in July so I will be taking the summer off from baking to focus on getting the unit sorted & ready for action come September. ANY donation, big or small would be incredible - and there are some massive bargains to be had.

£12: You can choose from either a mixed box (2 Oreo brownies, 2 chocolate chip cookies & 8 mini doughnuts) or a mixed brownie box (2 Oreo brownies, 2 peanut butter brownies, 2 marshmallow brownies) delivered straight to your door. These boxes are usually £16 on my website.

£15: A limited edition, Crowdfunder exclusive box of 6 fully loaded chocolate brownies with more toppings than you can shake a stick at! Oreos, lotus biscuits, peanuts, marshmallows, 'milk' chocolate, 'white' chocolate, pretzels, chocolate chips... this will only ever be available through this Crowdfunder campaign.

£60: A six month box subscription. You can choose from a mixed box or mixed brownie box, delivered each month to your door for 6 months. This would be worth £90 if purchased through my website.

Just a little bit about what I will be doing with the unit & where the money will be going. I will need to essentially build a kitchen in there, it needs a sink and worktops, I have one oven to put in there and will be buying another, it will need new flooring and general painting/decorating doing to it. I will need to build plenty of shelving and storage for my ingredients & packing materials, and I will need a packing station to work from. I also hope to create an area where I can hold baking classes!

So anyway if you made it this far then good on you, that was a lot of reading! I just want to say how much I appreciate you taking an interest & even if you can't donate, just clicking the share button could help a great deal! And if you can/do donate then thank you thank you so much, you are quite literally helping my dreams come true.
