Celebrate With #PabloThePug


We have had the most wonderful Easter half term and what better way to end it, then to celebrate our last Friday of the half term with a mini party with Pablo The Pug.


With the help from ASDA we gathered together for some fun family and games and of course no celebration would be complete without cake.

 

Pablo the Pug is an awesome NEW celebration cake which had just been launched by ASDA, This cute looking Pablo The Pug cake not only looks amazing but it tastes absolutely delicious.


Made with a delicately soft sponge and filled with delicious buttercream and raspberry jam, covered and decorated with soft icing and edible decorations, Every party most defiantly needs a Pablo Pug cake.



We really love this awesome cake, it defiantly had to be on of our all time favourite cakes, normally most celebration cakes come flat with imprinted images or 2D icing but this cool cake looks amazing and tastes delicious. why not party with Pablo The Pug only available at Asda online and instore for only £10.



Pablo loves a party... dancing, eating cake, pinning tails on (paper) donkeys... What's not to like? One day, Pablo had a problem - he'd been invited to two parties at once! He didn't know what to do so he put his thinking party hat on and tried to come up with a solution. After hours of thinking, Pablo dreamed up the perfect answer - cake! He trotted into the kitchen, put on his pinny and baked the world's yummiest, scrummiest cake and decorated it so it looked exactly like him. 'Now I can go to both parties!' laughed Pablo.



 We were given Pablo The Pug cake to taste and share, All thoughts are honest and of that of our own.

Hotel Chocolat - The School Of Chocolate Children's Workshop


We adore the delicious taste of Hotel Chocolat, So as huge Chocolate lovers we were super delighted to attend a one hour Children's Easter Workshop session in the heart of London's Covent Garden.

 

We headed down the winding staircase to Cocoa Vault and was greeted warmly by the staff, The children donned on their aprons and we were introduced to the Chocolate process and how the delicious Chocolate that we know and love is made, We had the opportunity to taste a Cocoa Bean as well as the tempered chocolate, delicious.

  

The tables before us were filled with jars of chocolate treats and a variety melted chocolate in icing bags, The boys excitedly began to decorate their very own chocolate slab and chocolate egg.

 

The boys had an amazing time creating their masterpiece's, it was great to watch them having so much fun getting creative and slightly messy. Once the chocolate designs were complete it was time to create and design a presentation box to put their delicious chocolate treats in.
 

We all had the most amazing time, it was great to learn about the chocolate process and the boys loved being mini chocolatiers for the morning, The children's workshop was great fun and educational, most defiantly an experience they would love to experience again. We left with a awesome Hotel Chocolat goody bag which contained the chocolate treats they had created along with a extra smiley Hotel Chocolat lolly pop and hat. 

  

Hotel Chocolat host a range of Chocolate experiences and workshops for both adults and children that you can attend or even buy as a special gift check out Hotel Chocolat/Experiences to find out more.

Easter Half Term #Betterwithcake


We have had a wonderful Easter break, it has been really nice to have some very much needed time away from the daily routine.

 

We have been spending lots of our time out and about from exploring museums and exhibitions, to Chocolate Workshops, fun in the park, As well as lots of sporting activities to keep us all occupied. We have all had the most amazing memorable Easter half term, but I'm defiantly feeling the effects of early mornings late nights and long days out.

 

After all of these fun days out and adventures have filled our hearts and left amazing memories in our minds,there really is nothing nicer then to come home, kick back with some warm drinks and of course my all time must have a Mr Kipling Cake.

Lego Mixels


We have been having a great time getting creative with Lego Mixels. These cool characters are brought to life thanks to Lego and Cartoon Network.
The cool nine characters come in three tribes Orbitons,Infernites and Glowkies
Each one had their very own unique special power and build. Mixels are made up from classic Lego blocks with each model featuring up to 70 pieces of Lego with cool characteristic elements from eyes,teeth and ball joints and when all of the character from each tribe is put together they become Max Mixels which is a huge Mega Mixels with all of the unique powers combined into one.


To celebrate the Cartoon Network Premiere of Mixel episodes " Moon Madness" which aired on the 14 March On Cartoon Network, We have been getting super creative to create our very own Lego Mixel character.

 

We had an amazing time building the Mixel characters,We loved that we can create and design your very own Mixel Character, we defiantly cannot wait to collect more of these amazing Lego Mixels and at only £2,99 from the Lego online shop, we are really excited at the range available. Each Mixel character comes complete with an instruction booklet to enable you to make each character in simple step by step instructions, or if like us you can mix and match your Mixels and design your own.


My son made this cool Mixel called Fire Eyes which my son tells me is a very fast Mixel who leaves a trail of fire behind him, Fire Eyes is small and sleek to enable him to slide under doors!!! Why not get creative and make our own Mixel character.
