Foodie Pen Pals - August 2012

When I was looking through a few new blogs (mainly to find some inspiration to make something) I came across this really cool Idea - Foodie Pen Pals. Started by Lindsay at The Lean Green Bean, It has now been brought over to England and Europe by Carol Anne at This is Rock salt

The idea is simple, you are paired with two different people, one who you send a parcel of goodies to and then another who you receive a parcel from.

It's a great way to meet new people and fellow bloggers. You start by emailing your FPP to see what they like and don't like etc. I had the lovely Isobel over at The Higley Kitchen. (you can see what she thought of my parcel here)

You then get an email from someone else (in my case I had Lisa from The Best Mummy I Can Be) I think I was pretty easy, I like most things and especially like baking. So I was so happy when I got lots of cake decorating goodies.

Lovely goodieness!

Lisa went with a British theme and I couldn't be more happier. The mature Cheddar and spring onion bites were delicious too.

I had Eliya-Mai for a few hours yesterday so as she was here when my parcel arrived, I thought it was only right we make cakes and decorate them.

Yummy cakes!

Think Eliya loved them too!
I can't wait for next month and If you are in Europe and England click here for more info.

I'm off to our town's Folkfest today so will speak soon.
