Being a very little fish in an increasingly huge blogging pond, opportunities for freebies don’t come my way very often and that is totally fine for me. I blog for fun, because I don’t keep a diary and because it keeps my crazy under some form of control (depending upon who you speak to!)
On occasion though, something arrives on our doorstep thanks to my little old blog which makes me beam. Mainly this Easter that has meant cake.
Not just any old cake; exceedingly good cakes…Mr Kipling cakes. Oh. Yes. Get in my belly!
The question Mr K and Britmums were asking was, what in your life is “Better with cake”. I’d like to rephrase the question and ask; what on earth ISN’T better with cake?!
This Easter, armed with a long weekend and 3 boxes of French Fancies (ALWAYS Pink – lush! ) vienese whirls and cheeky cherry bakewells, we tested that question to the max.
Watching Nigel Farage in the leadership debates?!
An exceedingly windy Easter picnic.
Play dough mixing mayhem?
Accidental face painting fiasco?
Getting back home after a 6 mile soaking for tea and cake in the tub….In blissful silence …#betterwithcake… Don’t panic, I’ve spared you that particular image!
Life in all of it’s wonderful, manic, chaotic imperfection, is #betterwithcake.
Not every day, not for every meal but when you’re taking 5 after a busy day, when you’re celebrating the extended family getting together or when a treat together just feels good.
What do you do that is better with cake? Am I missing a trick?
I’ll give anything a go once?!
*unfortunately this was a minimal improvement and I think what would have worked even better would have been wine; delivered intravenously.
** the scummy cakes were sent to family Leary as part of the #betterwithcake Linky Challenge promotion with Mr Kipling (http://bit.ly/betterwithcake).
