We’ve got a lovely book to give away this week, The Carrot Cake Catastrophe by Elizabeth Dale and Gemma Raynor.

In this charmingly illustrated story it’s Mummy’s birthday and Jenny and Grandad are making a surprise cake. Unfortunately it doesn’t quite go to plan when some ingredients get mixed up and it looks like it could be a catastrophe. Luckily it all ends happily and there is even a recipe for carrot cake at the end if you’re feeling inspired to bake one yourself.

If you’d like to be in with a chance of winning a copy then leave me a comment to tell me what type of cake you’d like for your next birthday and record your entry in the Rafflecopter widget below along with any additional entries. The giveaway will run until Monday 20th January 2014.

Carrot cake is lovely, even when it’s a carastrophe. I believe the gremlins who upset cake makers have cousins who work in IT and have a good chuckle every time I mess up a Tweet or anything on the computer. Hope they have a day off when it’s time to make my special lemon drizzle birthay cake!
