Whitworths, purveyor of all things dried fruit, seed , and nut related (as well as a wide variety of baking products) has released a beautifully illustrated children’s story for the holidays.
The Cake that Made Christmas is a sweet (see what I did there?) tale about a boy and his family rushing to find the perfect gift for the last person left on their list, their granddad. You can read it online or download the ebook for free here.
The story is quite short and easily held Miss J’s attention for the time it took to read through it, including time to discuss all the things we could see in the illustrations. The Cake that Made Christmas story is part of Whitworths #ShareTheLove campaign, which is all about baking and sharing your creations with loved ones. It’s all about baking someone happy.
To make the story even more accessible, Whitworths has also produced a video version of the story:
A recipe and instructions to make the Christmas saving cake in question (spoiler alert: it’s cranberry and almond cake) is included at the back of the ebook if you and your family decide to make your own. Please do leave a comment and let me know what you think if you have a go, I found it rather delicious, and it only takes 40 minutes of prep time and 90 minutes in the oven.
Whitworths is also running a competition where you can win a weekend trip to London for two at a 4-star hotel, including a walking tour of various bakeries and cake shops. To be in with a chance of winning you just have to upload a picture cake you’ve baked, along with who you’re sharing it with and why.
There’s 1000s of smaller prizes you can win if you’ve purchased various Whitworths products, including a rather nice heart shaped baking spoon that also makes an appearance in The Cake that Made Christmas.
