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!

Supermarket, Bakery or Scratch Recipe… Which Christmas Cake is Best?

I don’t mean to panic you, but do you realise we are less than five weeks away from *whispers* Christmas?

Tomorrow is Stir Up Sunday, your last chance to get cracking on all of your Christmas baking – but this got me thinking… would it be easier to fake it?

As a result, I tracked down the best Christmas cakes that a supermarket, a bakery and the internet could offer up and put them to the test…

PS. Stay tuned ’til the end to find out if you are the lucky winner of my Mystery Box Haul mega giveaway!

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! 😍
