EXCLUSIVE: WIN WITH MAGIC COLOURS

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote to tell you about something exciting I had been playing with, while whipping up some tasty cupcakes for one of my work colleague’s birthdays.

After meeting the owner of Magic Colours, Lihi Rosenberg at Cake International last month, she got to telling me about a new product that they have had in development over at Magic Colours HQ – for the last FOUR YEARS – which she kindly allowed me to have an advanced preview of: an entirely new range of 100% fully edible glitters – yes, you read that right, 100% edible, yet stunningly shiny and sparkly glitters that you can use on your cakes!

If you missed my original post, you can find it here.

In that post, I explained that the name featured on the test pots above was merely a working title and that Lihi was keen to find a new and original name to ensure that people don’t confuse their wonderful innovation with existing non-edible products already available.

I went on to explain that Lihi had had the most wonderful idea: inviting the readers of Mr Baker’s Blog the exclusive opportunity to devise an original name for the newest and most exciting innovation to be added to the Magic Colours lineup!

Yes, that’s right, Magic Colours and Mr Baker’s Blog have teamed up to offer you a prize that money simply cannot buy – the chance to put your own permanent stamp on the world of sugarcraft and win some gorgeous goodies in the process.

For your chance to win, you will need to get your thinking cap on and come up with an entirely original suggestion for a product name which manages to convey just how sparkly and shiny the new glitter is.

Once you have decided on the perfect sobriquet, you simply need to pop it in the comments below this post and that’s it!

After entries close, Lihi and the Magic Colours team will check out all of the suggestions and choose their favourite, with the winner having their product name printed on millions of pots of glitter that will be shipped all over the world – can you imagine the bragging rights alone?!

However, THERE IS MORE…

In addition to having their product name chosen, the lucky winner will also receive an exclusive collection of Magic Colours goodies to allow them to add some real colour, sparkle and shine to their own cake projects! I’m honestly a little jealous that I can’t enter!

So, what are you waiting for?!

Good luck, cake chums – I can’t wait to see what incredible suggestions you all come up with!
