Name: Mette Lorenzen Company name: Mettelina Cupcakes Brief description of my product: Homemade Gourmet Cupcakes are my specialty. I always had a big passion for food and during the last 5 years I have developed my own cupcake recipes in order to make the best cupcakes in Malta. I make cupcakes in all kind of flavors, designs and sizes for delivery or to be enjoyed at the Malta Artisan Markets! Why I love participating in Malta Artisan Markets: When I moved to Malta 6 years ago, I was looking for food markets and restaurant guides. That was how I learned about Malta artisan Markets. The first few years I visit every single market as a customer and simply loved the idea, concept and atmosphere! When I was ready with my Mettelina Cupcake project, I couldn't wait to finally participate with a stand and I am looking forward to participate in my very first Easter Market. I think this is such a great concept and opportunity for local artisans to show and share their passion and products. Mette's little quote to inspire someone to follow their dreams: Go for it ! -"There is nothing that is so bad, that it isn't good for something".

Why I love participating in Malta Artisan Markets: People have got accustomed to finding my products at these markets and many of them purposely come to top up – also the type of people attending appreciate the hard work involved in preparing home made produce. Andrea's little quote to inspire someone to follow their dreams: If you enjoy what you're doing, pluck that bit of courage, share it with the world – the worst that can happen is you'll keep doing it for yourself!
