Happy Chocolate Day!

Well I have just discovered that today is Chocolate Day! One of my new favourite days, I think. This is a picture of some gorgeous chocolate cupcakes that I made yesterday. I can’t wait to tuck into them! 
I have always been a huge chocolate lover ( which you can probably tell by now! ) My favourite chocolate bar is a dark chocolate Bounty, which are actually hard to come by here in Cornwall. The best chance of finding one is normally at petrol stations. 
I would love to hear about all your favourite chocolate bars, are you a milk or dark chocolate lover?

7 Hints and Tips On What To Do With Asparagus

I won these beautiful boxes of asparagus with @GrownWithLove on Twitter last week. It might sound strange to some of you, but I have never tried asparagus before so this is an ideal chance for me to discover what it’s all about. They look very beautiful and fresh.
           
I have been reading up on what asparagus actually is and how can it benefit you.
Apparently asparagus is a spring vegetable and only the young shoots are eaten before the buds start to open otherwise they turn woody.

It’s all about the cake! – Review and Giveaway

I am a huge cake lover as you know from my one of my older posts, on Gluten-Free Cake  and when bakerdays asked me if I wanted to review a letterbox cake for them I was so excited! They said I could browse their website and choose any design I wanted or they even said I could upload my own photo to put on a letterbox cake!
This is what arrived through my letterbox! The letterbox cake was beautifully packaged in a compact box with lots of other bits and bobs as well. There was a couple of candles and balloons with a cute note card. The cake itself was well protected in a gorgeous tin, which had little holes in so the cake could breathe. This little touch shoes me how much bakerdays care about the delivery of the cake.
The leaflet enclosed describes what bakerdays offer on their site. Including what size cakes they make and their 6 delicious flavours of cake. They are Vanilla, Chocolate, Fruit, Half & Half, Gluten Free and Dairy Free. So something for everyone!
Bakerdays offer loads of different designs for birthday cakes which they will personalise for you as well. You can check out their designs here. I will be checking out the gorgeous cupcakes they also offer for upcoming birthday parties!
So lets get back to the cake I chose! This is the design I wanted on my cake, I chose it from this range but adapted it for myself. The lovely people at bakerdays added the cute little message on the side! I love it!
I got sent the amazing chocolate chip cake, it is very moist and rich, perfect for a chocolate cake! This letterbox sized cake is perfect for 3-4 portions and is priced at £14.99.
I love this idea from bakerdays of sending a loved one a cake for what ever occasion you need.
Now here’s the giveaway!
