Today I am delighted to spotlight on Waffle wands, a unique, tasty new sweet treat perfect for wedding receptions, birthdays and private parties.
These Belgian waffles on a stick sprinkled with your favourite toppings are great for you to enjoy on the go, so genius for mingling and less messy than traditional waffles.
This exciting new brand is based in St Albans, Herts.
I hand over to Sophie Reynolds to tell you all about the Brand…
Who are you, and what do you do?
“Hello, I am Sophie and I own Waffle Wands.”
“Waffle Wands is a unique, tasty new sweet treat to have at any wedding.”
“We serve waffles on a stick to guests with a variety of yummy toppings.”
“These delicious treats are served from ‘Wanda’ our beautiful waffle cart.”
“She’s completely upcycled from a variety of woods (scaffold boards, pallet wood even an old broom handle as an axle for the wheels).”
“We can personalise ‘Wanda’ to fit in with any wedding theme, so if you were having a vintage floral theme we can dress Wanda in pretty floral bunting, use vintage china teacups for sprinkle holders etc just as an example of how easily adaptable she can be.”
Tell us a wee bit of background on the Brand..
“Since becoming a mother 6 years ago I decided that I wanted to take my 13 years in the catering and events industries and start my own business to fit with family life.”
“I opened my own tea room 3 years ago now and started to look at how we could bring something unique and exciting to the wedding and events market to run along side it.”
“In my past career as a wedding and events planner I knew this was where my passion lay, and that’s when my search began.”
“After lots of researching I knew I wanted to look for something sweet and that’s where Waflle Wands was born.”
Tell us about the process…
“We make all our waffle fresh to order and people love seeing how they are made some even getting involved in decorating their own waffle (the kids love that bit, sprinkles galore!
“Our Waffle Wands are quick to make (making 4, every 2 minutes) so unlike crepes or traditional large waffles, we are able to serve more guests faster without the queues that come with other sweet/desert options plus no cutlery is required so a very social treat as you can still mingle with your wand.”
“Waffle wands are very adaptable to even the fussiest of eaters with such a large range of toppings available.”
“Menu examples inclued: Cookies & Cream (Dark & white choc topped with crushed Oreo’s), Strawberries cheesecake (strawberry Coulis, Cream cheese frosting & freeze dried strawberries), Apple Cinna (apple puree with cinnamon dusting), Caramel cream (salted caramel & whipped cream), Rocky Road (chocholate icing, Marshmallows, nuts, crushed oreo & sprinkles), Classic maple (maple syrup & icing sugar), Rainbow Wand (White choc icing & rainbow sprinkles), Nutella love (nutella topped with nuts), Choccy orange (dark choc with orange zest) and many more combinations.”
Do you cater to Special Diets?
“We can make our batter gluten free or dairy free where requested.”
What are you plans for the future of the Brand?
“Our aim is to expand and make ‘Wanda’ some family (more carts!) so we can serve Waffle wands nationwide.”
“We are currently in the process of building our new website but you will find us on social media meantime.”
Thank you so much to Sophie for sharing the story of Waffle wands with us.
What a creative way for guests to get hands on with wedding food and such a great alternative choice to canapes, ice cream or the candy buffet.
