A Weekly Slice of Something Sweet, All Content, Blog

It’s time for another helping of Something Sweet…

Hey hey hey, cake chums and welcome back to another issue of Something Sweet from Mr Baker’s Blog – your weekly slice of all the latest news from the world of cake.

We didn’t have a huge number of contributions this week, but luckily the ones we did have were pretty darn FABULOUS, including an exciting new class from the one-and-only Emma Jayne Cake Design, a final reminder to get your tickets for the Northern Ireland Sugar Expo and a whole host of tutorials from Cakes by Carol, Cake Nation and Crumb Avenue by Agnes.

In our Community section, we meet another talented maker, check out yet another cake that has been wowing us in our timelines and, of course, we find out who has scooped this week’s Cake of the Week!

We also find out who has scooped one of the new Cake Masters Colouring Books in my latest giveaway!

So, without much further ado, let’s get to issue 46 – click here  to read it now.

Grab your crayons – it’s time for ANOTHER giveaway!

I came home to such an exciting delivery this evening!

Cake Masters are back with their second colouring book and it is even bigger and better than before!

After an overwhelming response to their first colouring book in 2018, the team knew that they had to come back with another edition and this year’s effort celebrates some of the most awesome cakes that have adorned the pages of the magazine over the last few years, with work from such legends as Mimicafe Union, Shannon Bond Cake Design, Laura Loukaides Cakes, Roses and Bows Cakery by Karen Keaney, Kek Couture, Merci Beaucoup Cakes, Karen Davies, City Cakes, Clairella Cakes and a whole lot more besides!

Editor, Rosie explained that ‘she hopes this colouring book will give us you some time out and some moments of quiet creativity.’

I have to say that I was particularly excited to receive my copy of the 2019 edition, as I had spied a certain familiar face when perusing the magazine’s Instagram Stories earlier this week…

Yes, you are seeing clearly! My Grumpy Pug: Winter Edition has been immortalised for all eternity amongst its pages and I am so buzzed to think that people all over the world will be putting pen to paper to colour in one of my creations!

To celebrate this momentous occasion, I think I feel a giveaway coming on…!

Matches my cake room decor perfectly, don’t ya think?

Luckily, lovely Rosie has sent me a few extra copies, so that I can share them with some of you – my lovely subscribers!

To get your hands on one, you simply need to share my Facebook post about this blog – which you can find here –tagging my alter ego, Mr Baker’s Cakes, and Cake Masters of course!

I’ll throw all the names in a hat at the weekend and let you know the three winners in this coming Sunday’s edition of Something Sweet, my weekly online magazine bringing you all the latest news from the world of cake (why not check out last week’s issue while you’re here?).

Don’t panic if you don’t win though – you can also get your hands on a copy for the bargain price of only £1.99 by ordering directly from the Cake Masters website right here or you can download a FREE digital copy by visiting this link.

Thank you so much to Rosie and the Cake Masters team for including me in their newest colouring book – it really is a tremendous honour – and for their continuing boundless support for both me and all of the other talented cakers that have adorned their pages! I wish you all the success in the world for 2019 guys!
