Well…how exciting is this?!
How would you like to visit the Cake and Bake Show in Manchester for free? I have been given 3 pairs of tickets for the show which runs from the 5th to the 7th of April in Manchester.
All the big names in baking will be there including, of course, The Clandestine Cake Club, which I might have a vested interest in, hehehe!
For more information you can visit The Cake and Bake Show website here.
If you’d like to be in with a chance of winning one of these pairs of tickets you just need to post a comment below, telling me what your favourite cake is and why.
The competition closes at midnight on Sunday, March the 10th, 2013 and I will randomly draw the winner on March the 17th.
This is what the press release says about the event:
