Glitter Absolves All Sins – Tesco Real Food Christmas Cupcake Decorating Competition Winners


Dec
16


One of the Judge’s finished cupcakes.

There are, largely, two branches of thought surrounding cupcakes. There is the ‘yay cupcakes! Tiny bites of yum!’ branch of thought and the ‘eh, I’m over it’ branch of thought. There’s even a food rumour going round that ‘pies will be the new cupcakes’, and if pies in a jar start popping up commercially then I may very well well jump on board the pie train (mhm, pie train…). However, until that time, I am rather firmly in the ‘yay cupcakes’ camp, and proud to be so.

When the Tesco Real Food team asked me to be one of their ten London bloggers to judge their nationwide cupcake decorating competition of course I said yes. Cupcakes were made and decorated, I judged with my judging eyes (oh little judging eyes, how thee judge so) and on Friday 10th December we Judges, along with the two winners of the competition, were invited to attend the Winners’ Day at The Make Lounge with professional cake decorating chef, Mich Turner of The Little Venice Cake Company to decorate cupcakes. Huzzah!

Who’d have thunk it: 8 rounds later and still standing. I’m keeping this one short and simple today because I’ve subjected you all far too much to my ramblings. Please vote for me, help me get through to round 9. When I started this I said, “I’m just as curious as you are to see how far this ride can go” – I’m still curious. Have I got what it takes to be a finalist? Let’s find out.

VOTE FOR ‘I AM A FEEDER’

And whilst we’re talking competitions, a small reminder: if you’re in the UK today is the last day to submit your entry for the Tesco Real Food Christmas Cupcake Decorating Competition! The two winners will get to spend an afternoon with a super secret celebrity chef at The Make Lounge, and ten runners up will each receive a Cupcake Decorating Kit from Tesco’s, which is pretty darn badass. So get submitting! I look forward to seeing your entries.

Until next time then, peace and love.

Have You Got What It Takes? Tesco Real Food Christmas Cupcake Competition


Nov
23


The other day I came home to find a big box waiting for me. There is literally nothing more exciting than coming home to a parcel, especially when you’ve been eagerly anticipating its contents for a few days/weeks/months, and the anticipation was killing me. I took my big box upstairs and tore it open, to find that inside was an equally large red box, tied with a big silver bow (squeee!), and a little card from the Tesco Real Food team.

You see, in the spirit of Christmas, Tesco decided to hold a nationwide cupcake decorating competition, the prize for which is two lucky winners getting to cook alongside a celebrity chef for an afternoon, and ten runners-up receiving a very special Tesco Cupcake Kit. Pretty good, right? So what’s my involvement in all of this? Well, Tesco asked me to be one of their ten London food bloggers to help judge this competition, create my own cupcake and attend the chef day along with the winners. Cupcakes? Christmas? Cooking with a professional chef in a professional kitchen?! How could I refuse?
