This Christmas Vs My First Christmas by Ailsa
I launched The Big Cheese Making Kit in September 2012 from my spare room. I bought enough ingredients to make 400 Big Cheese Making Kits. I thought that would be plenty to see me through Christmas and into January 2013….that was far from the case!

I was making the Kits myself and my the end of the first week I was already starting to struggle and had to get friends in to help me. At one point there was 8 of us in a production line in my dining room trying to keep up!
