Join me for some LIVE festive fun!

Hey Cake Chums!

It’s finally Christmas Eve and hopefully you’re all set for the big day tomorrow!

True to form, I’m not (obviously), so I’d like to invite you to join me over on Facebook later this evening for some LIVE festive fun, as we try and decorate my family Christmas cake with YOUR input.

Yup, at 7:00pm GMT, we will be live in the Mr Baker’s Cakes Kitchen with a marzipan-covered, 8″ round fruit cake, but from there the possibilities are endless! Do you have a particular design you would like to see me attempt? Is there a particular product that you would like to see included? Let me know in the comments and I will try and ensure that it/they are available for the video tonight!

Oh, and feel free to bring the kids along too! As always, Mr Baker’s Cakes is entirely family friendly… 😉

You can find Mr Baker’s Cakes on Facebook at this link.

I hope to see you there for some live festive fun!

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!
