It was my pleasure as well as my pain to be one of the three judges for the Rangecookers Cupcake Creative competition. My pleasure, because it was a real joy to see the amazing cupcake creations that bloggers came up with, but my pain because it was very hard to choose just a winner. There were a lot of entries and they all deserved attention. I suspect my fellow judges, Jac of Tinned Tomatoes and Lis of Foodstuff Finds felt very much the same. You can find out how we made the difficult decision on Jac’s announcement post.
The winner was announced a couple of weeks ago, but in case you missed it, I’m highlighting it here, along with five others that we thought deserved particular note.
Congratulations go to the winner who gets the prize of a new range cooker:

This time last week I’d just had my first ever Thai massage. It’s not for the faint hearted, but what an amazing experience. I definitely have more movement in my body now. Just wish I could have one every week. Swimming in the @careysmanor_senspa pool and lounging in the hydrotherapy pool afterwards was bliss. (Ad).
New made in Africa bean to bar chocolate from Madagascar. I tried two of the MIA @miaflavour bars : 75% dark chocolate and 65% dark chocolate with almond & coconut. Both have the distinctive buttermilk’s notes I associate with good Madagascan chocolate. Food with thought is the ethos and food with flavour is my verdict. Look out for them - definitely worth a try. (Ad)
