Science Cream

Super premium handcrafted ice cream, frozen to order, right in front of you in seconds. IMG_1300 (1)The theatrical plumes of vapor erupting from out nitro canisters, instantly freeze the custard base, creating a smooth, intense scoop with almost no ice crystals.

The ice creams superbly smooth texture is unlike any other ice cream and everything we sell, from cookie sandwiches to milkshakes topped with peanut butter brownies and flame toasted veggie marshmallow, is handcrafted in our little ice cream parlour in Cardiff.Owen Mathias Photography

In 2016, we featured in both the UK and Cardiff editions of The Guardian’s Best Cheap Eats. Their resident food critic Tony Naylor placed our ice cream on par with Heston Blumenthal’s, writing: “Remarkable… Frankly, how can you pass up the chance to try some of the best ice cream this side of Heston Blumenthal’s Fat Duck?”. That same year we also featured in The Times’ Top Ten Ice Cream Parlours in the UK, Olive magazine’s Top Twelve Best Family Friendly Venues and BuzzFeed’s 17 Ice Creams To Try Before You Die.

Cwtchfest Exhibitor Spotlight- Finale

Only two sleeps to go!

When we started the planning process for Cwtchfest last year, it felt like this weekend would never arrive.

Organising Cwtchfest is so similar to planning a wedding. You book a bunch of stuff in the beginning and then there is a bit of a lull…..then all hell breaks loose a few months before  (or in our case…8 days before our event!). Lucky for us, we’ve all been there and done it (the wedding bit) and as most of us all work full time in the wedding industry we totally took control of what could have been a big problem and have turned it around into something even better than what we originally had planned! We’ve also met more incredible professional suppliers in this process that we can’t wait to introduce you to!

BE OUR GUEST EVENTS


I formed the business after identifying a niche market place with in the wedding/party business  We specialise in backdrops – namely – flower walls, personalised 8 foot chalk boards (used as photo back drops), and personalised step repeats (these are what celebs stand in front of at events).

As our business continued to grow we were often asked “what else do you do?” this is when we added marquee lighting to our repertoire, with 5 foot LOVE & CWTCH signs include in this.

We then added all the other event paraphernalia, including chair sashes, table plans, invites, popcorn cart and deluxe candy buffet! Being born creative and a hopeless romantic has definitely helped.  But more than anything I love to create a event-scape that has the wow factor, no matter how big or small the budget !  I love what we do !
