Flossie Crums – The Enchanted Cookie Tree

Not a recipe this time round but a great giveaway for little Pink Whiskers!

Flossie Crums and The Enchanted Cookie Tree, written by Helen Nathan, is a wonderful combination of a fairy story and recipes for little Princesses to try their hand at.  If there’s one thing I know for sure it’s that little people love to bake.

Flossie Crums loves nothing more than baking for the fairies that live in her garden.  Having saved the day with her delicious cupcakes in The Fairies Cupcake Ball, Flossie and her little brother Billie have now been asked to bake cookies to celebrate the arrival of a new fairy – the baby of the King and Queen of Romolonia. You can visit the website here – Flossie Crums

Lots of beautiful cookie baking recipes and ideas here’s George the Marshmallow Spider Cookie!

I have three copies of the book to give away – hoorah!  All you have to do is leave me a comment here, anything you like, all the names will be entered into a hat (well a virtual hat anyway) and three winners drawn at random after the closing time.

All the books are also available on Amazon, details attached.

The rules – boring but important!

This giveaway closes at 4pm on Thursday 25th November 2010, the winner will be announced shortly after.  If you are leaving a comment as anonymous please make sure you leave your email address (so that I can let you know if you have won).  If I am unable to contact you another name will be drawn in replacement.

Open to UK residents only. One entry per person.

Any problems leaving a comment email me and I will add it for you.

Ruth Clemens, Baker Extraordinaire

Finalist on BBC2 The Great British Bake Off

    Dear Pink Whisk,

    Please keep up the good work – your emails come into my work mailbox and they cheer me up no end and give me inspiration. Today my commute to work took 2 hours with problems with tubes, then diversions with the buses and then to cap it all the office cleaner hadn’t put the dishwasher on so no clean cups for coffee. But….at least I could read your email.
    Thank you.

    Hi Ruth,

    Firstly, let me tell you how much I love receiving your e-mails – I get a ripple of excitement each time I log on just incase there is another recipe to try from my now favorite cook. I am enjoying trying your recipes which are being well received by my family!!

    I am a wife, mum, nana and Brownie Guider and so have lots of opportunities for baking for and with little people. I have one big prince, Matt, who is still at home (aged 17) who is a real foodie and my husband Peter (I suppose I should crown him King). my daughter, Nicola, has two princes of her own, Josh (5) and Elliott (3) and a newborn princess, Daisy who is just 3 months. My boys love to cook with me when they come over and I would love it if you could enter me into your lucky draw as I am sure I will be able to put this beautiful book to very, very good use.

    Once again, Ruth, many, many thanks for all you hard work with your baking and website – am waiting for a book maybe?? In the meantime, I will keep on printing out your pages and clipping them together.

    With warmest wishes to you and all your boys,

    Sue Thomas xx
