Someone’s trying to tell me something
As some of you may be aware, I try my hand at many of the giveaways I come across in the blogosphere, mostly to no avail. But this month, at virtually the same time, I won two giveaways AND both were cake decorating items. Well, I know cake decorating is not my forte and so it seems does the Great Baker in the Sky.
First up was a delightful Easter set from Yasmin Limbert. Those lovely spring colours, bright yellow and green, as well as the cute ducks, had me desperate to get my hands on this as soon as possible. Just Bake seems to have virtually everything you could ever want for showing off your bakes in style. Sadly, these arrived just too late for me to use them for Easter. I may just keep them for next year now or as it’s still spring I may use them anyway. Thank you Yasmin.
A couple of days after hearing I’d won the above, I heard I’d won some Dr Oetker decorating goodies from Karen of Lavender and Lovage. Goodness me! Weirdly they arrived on exactly the same day as the Easter decorations. It was like Christmas all over again as I eagerly tore open boxes and ripped off layers to find out what I’d been sent. I wasn’t disappointed. There are lots of things to top cakes, cupcakes and biscuits. Scarily, there is a tube of chocolate icing complete with four different nozzles – gulp! I was particularly taken with the sugar alphabet letters (which I used yesterday) and the sugar butterflies. There was also a packet of milk and white chocolate hearts, which will definitely come in handy. Thank you Karen.
I’m building up a nice collection of decorating materials and I’m really looking forward to having some fun and putting them to good use. Now, I just need a large spare cupboard to put them all in.
If you fancy your chances, Karen is running a further Dr Oetker giveaway on her blog at the moment. I obviously don’t feel I’ve got enough decorating material yet as I’ve entered this one too.
How do you like to decorate your bakes?
