    We have just had our daughter’s 9th birthday party at Cinnamon Square and it was full of fun and excitement as well as being a great learning experience. Seeing them go home eating the freshly baked loaves that they had cooked was lovely and all the girls were so proud of what they had achieved. Everything is taken care of, all we had to do was to light the candles, sing happy birthday and wave off some very happy children. Thank you for such a great day.
