I first came into contact with Ickles Fancies when I went to Delicieux for breakfast. Ever the enthusiast for something new, the owner Debbie asked if I would like to try their new flavoured chocolate discs. They were divine. I blogged about them, and next thing I know, I'm having a full blown conversation about all things chocolate with their creator, Lucy.
She's been on a whirlwind journey from teacher to cake baker, fudge maker to chocolatier, and I'm not sure she's done yet. She started her chocolate business with a 99p mould from ebay and some Tesco Value chocolate. She now uses the best ingredients, which she can manipulate into all sorts of weird and wonderful designs.
Delicieux have around thirty different flavoured discs made by Lucy, which I can confirm are absolutely delicious! They're even better when you layer them... Think lemon cheesecake...
It was lovely to speak to such a passionate local business-woman, who is doing something a bit creative from her own home.
