picstitch-cook like no one is watching

Mr Vintage ‘Ladies a Plate’ Tea Towel // Penguin ’Little and Friday Celebrations’ Cookbook // Love Cake Gluten-Free Gift Box includes: 1x Organic Chocolate cake mix, 1x Organic Chocolate Cookie mix, 1x Organic Vanilla Muffin mix, 1x pack of paper baking cups, 1x bag of gluten free icing sugar, 2x jars of Love cake baking pearls, 1x Wilton 12 piece cake decorating set // Mother Earth Golden Apple Chunks // iDear Recipe Cards ‘Whip it Good’ // Mother Earth Gourmet Apricots

When it comes to baking or cooking you might fall under one of two categories. 1. You love to bake, it is your calming ‘safe place’ and you can whip up the most mouth-watering treats at a moment’s notice – or – 2. You HAVE to take ‘home baking’ to the kids’ school gala and the supermarket is closed and the only reason you are even contemplating baking is because it is too late to nip out and buy a cake to disguise as your own.

Regardless or which category you best relate to, you will be taken in by the gorgeous images and recipes in the Penguin ’Little and Friday Celebrations’ cookbook. Store your best recipes on the delightful iDear ‘Whip it Good’ recipe cards and enjoy adding the delicious Mother Earth Golden Apple Chunks and Gourmet Apricots to your muffins, cakes or mouth.  Use your stunning array of gluten-free products from the Love Cake gift box to create a mass of treats and the when the last cake is cooling on the cake-rack dry off your mixing bowls with your quirky tea towel from Mr Vintage.

    This would be great for the kids when they go through those “driving mum crazy” times during the holidays. LOL ;-)

  18. Joan says:

    Being gluten free is hard enough being an adult but for a kid suddenly having to miss out lots of your old favorites is even worse would love to win so we can try the baking mixes and hopefully put a smile back on my daughters face many disasters in the kitchen with the baking

  19. Aimee Gibson says:

  20. Marji says:

    Mmmmmmm cake!

  21. Claire L says:

    I used to bake a lot…all sorts of different things. But I find I stick to the same recipes lately as I don’t have time or the money for failures. I would probably gift this to a friend if I was lucky enough to win as she is the best baker and loves to share her treats with us.

  22. Amy McCallum says:

  23. Erin F says:

  30. Ashley Montgomery says:

    I love to bake! These supplies would be a fantastic help in my kitchen, especially the Little and Friday cookbook!! I would love to make an attempt at baking some of their goodies . The organic packs sound delish too, so handy for whipping up baked goods for my gluten free friends and family :)

  31. Miriam van Dijk says:

  36. Rachel Henderson says:


  37. Deborah says:

    Absolutely love today’s prize package !! Very vintage, gourmet, organic, and chic !
    What a wonderful treat it would be.

  38. Bronwyn Davidson says:

    This would make a great activity for my family to do this Christmas.

  39. Nikki S says:

    little and friday are my favourite.

  40. Emma says:

    Oh my I love the whole lot! Little & Friday are gorgeous, would love some recipe cards and the tea towel would be great to serve the treats on.

  41. Katherine T says:

    Wow what an awesome prize! Firstly I would love to win all of the ingredients because I love to bake sweet treats. And yes, I eat some of the mixture before it gets cooked. The recipe cards would come in very handy as I am always collecting recipes from other people, magazines, the internet etc so it would be great to have a storage solution and make it easy to find everything I want. “Little and Friday Celebrations” is the holy grail of recipe books and I would have a great time baking and eating my way through every recipe – the decorating kit will help make even my most terrible effort look good. Organic chocolate cake sounds truly delicious (and healthy, right?) and with the added bonus that it’s gluten-free definitely appeals to me. This would be the best Christmas present ever and I could share the love with baking :-)

  42. Millie says:

    I am an avid baker – this prize is right up my alley. Fingers and toes crossed!!

  119. Anita Marija Erceg says:

    The kitchen is a no go zone for any one but me when i am in a mood or frustrated or…..well anytime really.
    There is nothing quite like pounding dough to relaease your tension, beating eggs until anger has subsided or tears have ceased. The upside to baking is that provided you have the correct ratio of liquid to flour and a raising agent there is usually something edible at the end.
    It may not look appealing, it may look nothing like the recipe book or what you had in your mind, but as long as it is not hard or burnt the kids will usually scoff it down like you are the best mum in the world.
    Of course there are the mums who turn up to parents groups or school meets with the most atractive, overly decorated, perfect creations – but i prefer my own unique offerings because they have been made with emotion and it will show.

  120. Hayley Berendsen says:
