I was very excited yesterday to receive a Blogging By Mail parcel from Nikki of Miss Cupcakeface in the USA. The contents of my parcel are pictured above. Thanks Nikki!
My parcel contains lots of wonderful sweet treats - although I don't blog about it, I am a lolly fiend, so I was very excited to receive box upon box of sweets from Nikki.
Nikki thoughtfully packed graham crackers, marshmallows and bars of Hersheys chocolate so that I could make s'mores. Yum! We don't get Graham crackers in Australia, so it is terrific to be able to see and taste exactly what they are, as they appear as an ingredient in many US recipes.
She also packed a box of red, green and blue Wilton shimmer dust together with Wilton white sparkling sugar so that I can brighten my cake decorations. I love pretty shiny stuff to help me decorate my cakes!
I received three cute cookie cutters in the shape of a heart, a gingerbread man and a flower. These are great, because I didn't previously have these shapes in my collection.
There was also a massive Psychadelic Sour Jawbreaker - I am not yet sure how I will tackle this, but I am up for a challenge!
And last, but not least, I received 7 boxes of candy - Skittles (fruit candies in lime, grape, lemon, orange and strawberry), Jolly Rancher Gummies (soft fruit candies in watermelon, apple, orange, cherry, grape and lemon flavours), Wonka Everlasting Gobstoppers (jawbreakers that change colours and flavours), Wonka Nerds (tiny, tangy crunchy candies), Mike and Ike Fruit Candies (cherry, lime, lemon, orange and strawberry flavours), Ferrara Pan Lemonheads and Wonka Sweet Tarts. Eat your heart out! (Although don't tell Boris, my dentist ;).) I have only tried the Mike and Ike so far, but they are good, and are not sold here. I also love fruit candies, so I now have a lot to choose from.
Thanks so much to Nikki for this lovely surprise package and to the tireless Stephanie of Dispensing Happiness who organises Blogging By Mail, collecting data and matching bloggers and keeping track of what is going on (this time, for 117 participants!).
