Hey hey hey, cake chums.
I do hope you are all having a good week so far.
I’ve gone all quiet on you again this week, but with good reason… I’ve been on the countdown to my birthday tomorrow! Yup, I have survived another year – goodness knows how!
But, having been sat on some rather exciting news for a fair old while now, I decided that today was finally the day to make a super special announcement…
Now you may recall that towards the end of 2018, I announced a rather exciting competition that I was running in collaboration with Magic Colours – exclusively for readers of Mr Baker’s Blog.
The team up saw us offering you the chance to win a prize that money simply cannot buy – the opportunity to put your own permanent stamp on the world of sugarcraft and win some gorgeous goodies in the process.
As I explained in the original post (which you can find here), after four years of development, Magic Colours are almost ready to launch the world’s first truly edible glitter – yes, you read that right, 100% edible, yet stunningly shiny and sparkly glitters that you can use on your cakes!
In that post, I also explained that the name featured on the test pots pictured above was merely a working title and that the Magic Colours team 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.
And that was where you came in!
Magic Colours exclusively invited the readers of Mr Baker’s Blog the opportunity to devise an original name for the newest and most exciting innovation to be added to the Magic Colours line-up!
It truly was a prize that money cannot buy, and as you can imagine, we had plenty of entries!
I had so many favourites – probably too many – including: Dazzle Dust, suggested by Michelle, Claire AND Karen; Glamour Glitter, suggested by Michelle; Glitter Magic, suggested by Vicki; Glitter, Glitz and Go, suggested by Carla, Deco Dust, by Rebecca Neale – see what I mean? Too many.
Luckily, choosing the winner didn’t fall to me. Instead, the Magic Colours team sat down at the start of this year and perused all of the entries, before deciding on their favourite.
They also loved lots of the suggestions, but they ultimately decided that Lynnette Russell’s proposal, Magic Bling, was the winning entry. They’ve tweaked it slightly, as is their wont, and the new range of fully edible glitters will be known as Magic Colours’ Bling Bling.
I must offer Lynnette the hugest of congratulations on her win. How exciting to know that every single pot of Bling Bling sold will be thanks to her awesome idea!
If you would like to get in touch via my Facebook page Lynette, I’ll put you in touch with the Magic Colours team so you can claim your prize.
In the meantime, I also need to say a massive thank you to everyone who got involved in my latest competition, in partnership with Magic Colours, and my commiserations to those who didn’t take home the prize on this occasion.
I run lots of fantastic competitions here on Mr Baker’s Blog, so do stay tuned for the next one very soon.
