So your brand is called Pastry, what’s
your favourite kind of pastry then?
Vanessa: Well the whole collection started with the
cake collection because that’s what everyone thinks
of when they think of pastries so I’m going to have to
go with cakes, but I’m good at baking cookies!
Angela: My favourite is cupcakes.
Why the name ‘Pastry’ for your company?
Vanessa: What woman doesn’t love pastry? It’s like
that guilty pleasure that you have to run off all the time
on the treadmill and we like baking, so when we were
coming up with a concept we were like – why not?
Vanessa & Angela: Pastry!
