During the Second World War my grandfather Frank, sent my mother Rose a set of doll candle holders which were placed on all her birthday cakes, and then once we arrived on all our cakes too.
Of course as our family grew and moved away we needed more and more candle holders. Originally I sat at the kitchen table designing and painting dolls. Rose painted some too! They became so popular with family and friends that I decided to share the tradition with everyone – so Rose and Frank was created!
