Every so often we’re joined by someone on a work experience placement, we always ask them to write a blog about what they’ve been up to ……
Hi, I’m Sophie and I go to the Wakeman School in Shrewsbury.
At the moment I’m working here at Toot Sweets in the Market Hall for my work
experience. So far it has been really enjoyable, and I’m sure I will enjoy this
week just as much. Ever since I was small I’ve had a passion for sweets, so as
you can imagine, working in a sweet shop has been absolutely amazing. I’ve been
doing all sorts of cool stuff while I’ve been here, like;
– Bagging up sweets
– Helping to refill sweet jars
– Making little signs for the sweets
– Helping set up displays
– Even chocolate tasting!
As you guys can see, I have been having lots of fun, but I’ve
also been learning tons of fascinating stuff too! I’ve learnt all about
customer service, and all about chocolate tasting. You know, chocolate tasting
isn’t just about taste; it’s about the smells, the appearance, and the
explosion of flavours when you bite into it. It’s almost indescribable.
I’ve done pretty much everything I came here to do, and it’s
been amazing! But there are a few things I would like to do before I go… like
learn how to do proper icing on cupcakes. I adore making cupcakes at home, but
I can never get the icing how I want it, so I would love Julia to show me how
she does the simply amazing icing on her cupcakes. I want mine to look almost
as beautiful as hers do.
So, that’s enough from me. But if you ever get a spare
moment, and you are craving something sweet, head down to Toot Sweets in the
Market Hall, because the things here are indescribably wonderful. 🙂
