  1. Oh yes please! I'd love to win. x

  2. What perfect timing! I've been debating all day about whether I could afford tickets or not. I desperately want to go! This way I can leave it in the lap of the Gods. Fingers crossed!

  3. Bad start to the day this morning but even the vague prospect of going to a weekend of all things cake has cheered me up no end!

  4. favourite cake is obviously something chocolatey with a bit of alcohol ;)

  5. Yay, I'd really love to go as I was too pregnant to go to last one as well!

  6. Proper parkin, packed with oats....

  7. My favourite cake is probably blueberry crumb cake (or any berry really, I love them all) - eat it when it's fresh from the oven and still slightly warm, mmm :)


I love getting comments :)
