The beginning

Captains Den advertising started on a Facebook group page, this has archived now but here are a few entries saved:-


Hi folks,
With the 1st anniversary of dads passing and his endless support for my ventures; I thought it was only fitting to create a business name that incorporated the remembrance well. I am launching Captains Den as my business venture with aim to sell morning coffees, afternoon teas, sponge cakes, muffins, pasteries, chutneys, jams and fruit cakes.
With time, I will be adding more pictures to temp you toward placing an order for my products. Please order through Captains Den wall, my email or mobile number.
My end goal is to own my own coffee shop / tea rooms…. I have not decided where or when yet but will be working from home until the decision is made 🙂

Welcome to Captains Den…. I hope you enjoy my products

        • Emma Heinemann Cake looked great and tasted fantastic – was a great birthday surprise for Lynne! Thank you very much, will have to discuss plans for a 40th birthday cake for next year! xxxxx
          Thank you for the lovely cakes for Lewis’ birthday. All three (customised vic sponge, lemon and banoffee) went down very well with everyone – my uncle was after 2nds and 3rds for the banoffee! And the homemade jam in the sponge was lovely too – do you sell that and if so, how much is it?

          See you soon,

          C x
