CSN Review and Giveaway

email from A few weeks ago I recieved an email from CSN Promo Team enquiring if I would like to review one of their shops or do a giveaway on my blog for a voucher for anything from Ceiling Lights to Cookware. I looked at the CSN sites...mostly the cookware because more than anything else I like to potter about in the kitchen, and I emailed them back saying I would like to do a review and a giveaway for my readers.They sent me a voucher code and I toddled off to the cookware site to find something to make my little baker's heart happy. I looked through everything twice before ordering a KitchenCraft Cake Biscuit/Icing set. The website was easy enough to navigate and order from. My order was to be 5 working days to ship but it arrived in three. I tore into the parcel and oggled the new icing gun with glee.


I baked cupcakes and mixed a great vat of icing which I split into two portions adding fresh raspberries to one, and chocolate to the other. The icing gun took a bit of practice to get the icing looking nice but it was great fun to play with and I shall be baking some cookies with it in the near future. I may use the site again in the future (I quite fancy one of those creme brulee torches), as the service was good and they emailed you updates at each stage of your order being processed.



Now for the good part...

the promo team said I could giveaway a voucher for £30 for the CSN sites to one of my blog readers. I used the to order my icing gun set from by you can use the £30 voucher code at any CSN site.

Have a look at what they have to offer and leave me a comment of what you would spend the £30 on, leave me your email and I will have the voucher code emailed to you!

good luck... a name will be drawn at random on Monday the 23 of August.

Oh I'd have to get something Le Creuset to treat my husband (he does the cooking) - he loves them but they're way out of our price range usually!

What a fantastic giveaway - CSN are new to me, but what a great site. For me it's a no-brainer, the domed cake stands are delicious! Thanks so much for the chance to win.xx

Hmmm. I think I'd maybe treat myslef to a new pie dish, or just get a pretty cake stand!

The cupcakes look yummy! How fun that you got to test and review a product!
I'd order a new batter bowl(the teal one) and of course an apron. I like the C'est Ca Ole Sevilla Apron in Pink Lightning.

Well as I'm a young student with no much kitchen equipment yet, I think I would by a croc-pot to bake good stews and pot au feu for the fall, yummy! Or maybe a cake stand? So pretty..

I'd get a new set of pots and pans. Possibly the Prestige Urban collection.

Oh too much to choose from...I liked the breadmakers...but they were out of stock, so either new pots and pan set or cookie cutters :)

things we make said...

Hmm.... I love baking stuff, so very difficult to pick something. I saw a cake baked in a bundt tin the other day that looked so cute, and as my large cakes tend to sink in the middle, what could be better than one that doesn't have a middle. So I might go for a Kaiser springform bundt tin or perhaps another mermaid pie tin as they are the best and we give them some hammer!
