A Blog Anniversary Giveaway

To celebrate a year of blogging, I am holding a little giveaway.

At this point I could let you know that my blog friend Ashley is holding a fab giveaway over at Country Rose, but if I send you over that way you might never come back. ;-)

Baking is one of my favourite things to do.  It helps me to relax, I use it as a way to show people that I care and I especially like to pretty up my bakes whenever I have time.  So I thought a baking-themed giveaway would be appropriate.

Included in the giveaway is: 




*  A copy of Annie Rigg 'Decorated Gingerbread'

*  A Tala icing bag set

*  Ninjabread Men cookie cutters

*  A set of Russian doll measuring spoons

*  Divine Deli Decorate! mini chocolate beans and white chocolate drops




It has taken almost all of my willpower to give away these fun Ninjabread Men cookie cutters and the Russian Doll measuring spoons that have been kindly donated by findmeagift.com.  I love them!



I've also included this retro style Tala icing bag set.  I have one of these myself and love it so I bought one for you.  The tins, obviously, are nice but it's good to have a proper little container in which to store all of my piping nozzles.  There are a few shapes and sizes here which will get you started if you haven't tried piping before.  There's also a little instruction booklet.



The Divine Deli Decorate! cake decorations are my very favourite.  I don't think there are any stockists near me so I stock up online buying several jars at a time.  They are fab quality, there's a good choice and I like the packaging too.  I use these mini beans a lot and can also recommend the strawberry buttons, caramel curls, sticky toffee crunch and chocolate coffee beans.  All of these things are lovely with ice cream or yogurt too.


I'll add a couple of surprise treats specifically picked for the winner when the giveaway closes.

So, to enter all you need to do is:  

* become a follower of my blog if you aren't already

and

* comment here to say you'd like to win.

Easy peasy! 

If you link to me on your blog and/or tweet it please pop back and let me know for a second entry. The winner will be selected via the random number generator thingy.  

I will close down the comments on Sunday morning (26th February) and everyone is welcome to join - I will happily post the package overseas. 

Good luck and have a fab week! 

Nicki

  17. So. I woke up this morning to find a plea of "please enter my give away...I'm all self concious" I run to the laptop and LOOK! 15 comments already. You needn't have worried my love.

    Anyway now I am here it would be rude not to enter. Also, as I have way too many measuring spoons if i do happen to get selected then I'll give you the measuring spoons. How about that!

    I'll blog about it when I get my arse in gear, I'm drowning under too much to do right now!

  70. Hi Nicki.....I'm really enjoying your blog now that I've found you.....I'd love to win your giveaway......I'm not really a cookie cutter and icing type of person, but recently made and iced some little cupcake shaped cookies for my Angels.....I had such fun.....I couldn't believe how much I enjoyed creating pretty little cookies.....but sadly my icing bag is rather decrepit, so a nice shiny new one, in a pretty tin would be wonderfully encouraging for me......I also have a little secret coveting going on for the russian doll measuring cups....so matching spoons would be just delightful....have a fun Friday.....and wonderful weekend....Sassybelle -xxx-
