First of all I would like to say Happy Easter to you all! I hope you all got lots of wonderful chocolate Easter eggs and are scoffing lots of cakes!
During the Easter period I have been entering lots of competitions (especially for Easter eggs!) I have yet to win an Easter egg yet but my fingers and toes are still crossed! However I did win a twitter competition with Mr Kipling Cakes and what a cakealicious surprise I had through the post! Thanks Mr Kipling!
The brightly coloured orange box contained Lemon Whirls, St Clements Slices, Lemon Fancies and Lemon Bakewells.
As you can tell from the picture above I love the Lemon Bakewells best! They are crumbly, sweet and just scrumptious!
Mr Kipling’s current promotion on Twitter is #BetterWithCake and I have to agree with them! Life is better with Cake!
So why does cake make you feel better?
Baking all sorts of cakes, brownies and scones is very therapeutic and can help stimulate the mind. It gives you a sense of achievement when you look back at what you have created.
I love this quote from Mary Berry the ultimate Queen of Cakes: “If you’re feeling a little bit down, a bit of kneading helps,”
I would like to hear what you love to bake, and does it make you feel better?
