Pay It Forward
Some time ago one of my favourite bloggers, Lorraine from Not Quite Nigella participated in Pay It Forward, a round the world “game” in which you receive a parcel from someone somewhere in the world and then you have 365 days to “pay it forward” by on-sending a parcel to two other people. I was one of the very lucky recipients of Lorraine’s pay it forward parcels and my parcel arrived last Friday.
Lorraine did ask me what kind of things I liked, and so I told her that cupcake accessories are quite limited in NZ, so anything to do with cupcakes would be well received. I must say that I was so delighted to receive this lovely parcel full of cupcake decorations such as sugar flowers and roses, and cute cupcake cases. There was also some Australian chocolate covered macadamia nuts (macadamias are by far my favourite nut!) and the cutest koala shaped cookie cutters that are just too cute for words (for those of you haven’t guessed already, Lorraine is based in Sydney).
My favourite of all the items in my pay it forward parcel though are these cute little sugar princesses. They are just too adorable. I think I will have to wait until the next time my wee niece comes up to make some cute cupcakes to put these on. They are almost too cute to use!!
So, now it’s my turn to pay it forward. Please leave a comment on my blog by Monday 22 June, and I will randomly choose two people to pay it forward to.
And, thanks Lorraine – you are a star!
