Party Planning, Hot Cross Buns and a Giveaway
While I want to keep to the Ninjago theme I am conscious that Gilbert’s birthday is very close to Easter this year so have been trying to find a way to bring in some Easter goodness too. Like chocolate and hot cross buns. My favourites – yum…
As it happens, the wonderful folk at Baker’s Delight invited us to sample some of their very moreish hot cross buns as they prepare for Bundraiser Day on Saturday 16th March (which is tomorrow people!)
Do you prefer fruit or chocolate my friends?
On Bundraiser Day, Baker’s Delight will donate $1 from every 6 pack of hot cross buns sold to one of eight children’s hospitals across Australia, including my local children’s hospital, The John Hunter.
This is something close to my heart as we have utilised the services of The John Hunter on several occasions for the kids. Between Gilbert’s sleep study to determine if a tonsilectomy was in order (not needed, thank goodness) and Delilah’s admission with bronchiolitis at the age of 5 weeks of age (very scary), it’s been a comfort to know that specialist services are nearby.
If you, like me, have been holding onto your self-control since the hot cross buns first came out to replace the christmas decorations back in January, you have earned the pleasure of a warm hot cross bun! And, take it from me, the Baker’s Delight ones are divine*. Plus, a $1 from each 6 pack is going to to a great cause. You can’t lose!
*In the interests of full disclosure I have to state that the fruit hot cross buns are awesome. Unfortunately my children did not fully appreciate the delights of the chocolate variety – you just can’t pick it, can you? But they did love the activity packs that also arrived to keep them occupied, even if a fight arose between the girls about who would own the pink one. BTW Delilah won!
And now it gets even better for you guys. I have 3 x $10 Baker’s Delight vouchers to giveaway so you can sample the delights of their hot cross buns for yourself.
Simply tell me whether you are a fruit, chocolate or fruitless hot cross bun fanatic and why. The 3 responses that most tickle my fancy will win a voucher. It’s that simple.
The competition will run until 6pm AEDT Wednesday March 20 so you have the chance to get your hands on a voucher before Easter. Note the giveaway is open to Australian residents only.
For the record, I love my fruit buns as I can’t quite get my head around combining chocolate with bread. And yes, this means I have never had a nutella sandwich in my life (I actually shocked my husband with this – am I odd?)
So, get along to your local Baker’s Delight tomorrow, buy a 6 pack of hot cross buns and help raise much needed funds for children’s hospitals across Australia. And don’t forget to enter for your chance to win!
Spreading the word via Grace for Flog Yo Blog Friday – have a fantastic weekend everyone!
