Cocoa Cupcake and the BookStop Cafe
Written by Charlotte Reid on 10th May 2013
There’s plenty of cake and chat about Twitter on this week’s episode of Food for Thought. I spoke to Katie Scott from Cocoa Cupcake. She makes cupcakes, biscuits and cakes and I wanted to find out more about her business. I also caught up with the BookStop Cafe, it opened over the Bank Holiday weekend and supports local authors.
Katie Scott, from Cocoa Cupcake, makes fantastic looking cakes for people’s birthdays and weddings but baking and decorating has long been a hobby of hers. Katie chatted to me about how she got back into baking, as well as how sites like Twitter help her to promote her work.

The Bookstop Cafe opened on the Bank Holiday weekend so I went along to find out what they are offering Lincoln.
Joff Gainey, who runs the new cafe, wanted to combine his love of cake and tea with his interest in books and reading. He is also a local author and wants the Bookstop Cafe to be a place to promote and support other local authors.
