A Little Help With Your Christmas Shopping…

Have you finished your Christmas shopping yet?

If, like me, you’ve barely even started (gulp), I thought I would give you a little help to track down those last minute cake decorating gift ideas…

First things first, definitely check out my brand new Amazon store to find a round up of some of my top cake-themed gift suggestions (linked to my recent YouTube video).

I have also put together a list of some of my absolute favourite baking and cake decorating books over there too, so it’s definitely worth a look!

And don’t forget, you can also visit the Mr Baker’s Cakes apparel store to pick up all of your essential #cakechums merch – including (after a lot of requests) some BRAND NEW HOODIES! I’ve gone for just a standard, ‘men’s’, non-tailored fit at the moment as that is what people had been asking for, but rest assured, we will DEFINITELY be adding some more new products to the line in 2020!


But – and this is super important – today is your last day for ordering if you want to be able to guarantee delivery in time for Christmas, so get to it!

Between those two links, you should definitely be able to find all of the last minute cake decorating gift ideas you could possibly need! And while you’re there, maybe even treat yourself to a shiny trinket or two as well…! 😉

I hope they helped, but be sure to let me know in the comments if you have found any other amazing bargains or ideas that you think people would want to hear about!

PS. Oh, actually… while you’re here, have you seen the latest posts over on my social media channels?

I think we all have that one special Cake Chum in our life who is always there to keep us going when times are getting a little bit rough and, at this time of year, it’s always nice to be able to show them a bit of love and appreciation. To say a special thank you for all of their support over the last year…

I don’t know about you, but I think my Cake Chum deserves a truly special gift this Christmas – I only wish I could afford it! Luckily, the lovely Christmas elves at Bake Diary are here to help!

All through December, they have been running a very special giveaway to help us show our love and appreciation to our favourite Cake Chums!

To get involved, you simply need to head to their Facebook page, find the giveaway post (click this link to head straight there) and add a comment, telling them what you would buy for the special cake chum in your life and why. Whether it’s a sheeter, a new stand mixer or something else entirely, just let them know and they will pick one lucky person to receive the gift of their dreams! Amazing, right? The winner will be chosen on Christmas Eve, so there isn’t any time to lose! Good luck!

My TOP TEN Christmas Gifts for Cake Decorators!

Have you been asked the dreaded question yet?

You know the one…

“So, what would you like for Christmas…?”

If you’re anything like me, then I bet your mind immediately goes blank – a complete mental block – and you can’t think of anything at all. As a result, I thought I would put together the ultimate cake decorator’s Christmas wish and that way, the next time someone asks you the dreaded question, you can get my latest video up and just shove it under their noses.

You can check out the video here (don’t forget to SUBSCRIBE!):


In this week’s video, I’m also giving away a copy of Rhianydd Webb’s debut book, Cyril’s Cake Adventure, so be sure to head to this link and get your entry in

So, what did you think? Did I miss anything important? What are you hoping to find under the tree on Christmas morning?

Be sure to let me know in the comments over on YouTube and who knows… you might just snag yourself an extra little treat. 😉

A massive thank you from me to you!

Thank you thank you thank you to everyone who has supported my fundraising efforts this month! As a result of your generosity and all-round awesomeness, we have been able to send a massive £389.50 to local causes supporting children and that is quite simply amazing!

Congratulations to my two winners, Moira and Jill – I do hope you enjoy your festive treats!

I’d also like to take this opportunity to wish my subscribers, regular readers and everyone else a very Merry Christmas!

And I’ll see you all next week for my look back at the year that was 2017. It’s been a crazy ride! 😍
