Festive Favourites Round Up Week 4

It's getting closer! I hope you had a lovely week since last weeks Festive Favourites.  It has been super busy here with my little girls 4th birthday and her nativity play. I also swear to God that girl has a better social life than me? It's all party dresses and bloomin sausage rolls! She will have a shock come January I tell thee. This week brummydaddyof2 took the kids out on a jolly, we went as a family to the ever so controversial 'The Magical Journey' and my girl had a teeny tiny birthday cake just right for a four year old to tuck into. And further down there is a competition to win one of two for yourself. So here goes...this weeks Festive Favourites!



Festive Day Out: The Magical Journey
I was offered press tickets to the Magical Journey a while ago but I really wanted to go with the whole family on my girls birthday so I paid for tickets. It has become a bit of a tradition that we all go and see Father Christmas together so this year was no different. Then? I started to read the terrible reviews on facebook. And quite understandable was super worried. So I will be honest? I arrived there with proper low expectations. But? Thank the Lord they were exceeded.


We really did have a lovely day. The team at The Magical Journey have obviously worked really hard to make up for the things that weren't quite right to start off with. Everyone was super friendly. We loved all the little rooms that we had to go in and we had a really good time. The best bit was Father Christmas who really spent a long time talking with both of the children, and that bit seriously was magical. In fact I wept. And so did my Dad. It was lovely. Click here for a little video of the day. All I will say is wrap up warm as it is FREEZING. Buggies probably aren't the greatest idea and the present is not brilliant. Bar that? It was aces. So if you have already booked tickets. I wouldn't worry too much.


Festive Food: The Guild Brewers Fayre
Whilst I was out for my birthday jolly. Brummydaddyof2 was lucky enough to be invited to the opening of a new Brewers Fayre in Bromsgrove. He had an amazing time. Oh...and the kids did too. They got to hang out with Dennis the Menace, trial a brand new soft play area (THE DREAM) and also eat nuggets. What more can a small person want? Brummydaddyof2 said it was a brilliant soft play area as it was over a few levels and he was super impressed. He didn't mention anything but I can bet you a burger and chips he had a ruddy good play in it. If you fancy going for food there over the festive season check it out here.


Festive Birthday: Baker Days Letterbox Cake
As I said above each year we go out as a family for my girls birthday. She had her big party cake from my friend Asda on the Sunday. So on the actual day we ordered her a lovely little letterbox cake from Baker Days. An online cake company which allows you to look at a range of cakes, personalise them and then get them delivered. As you all know by now. Making a birthday cake? WOULD KILL ME! So this was perfect.


I let my girl go to the birthday cake section of the site and she chose a cute pony cake. I then added her name and age and then we waited for Baker Days to deliver it. The letterbox cake is ace and was just perfect for a couple of us to have a slice. Or my girl and her brother to consume the whole lot. Sods! It comes in a lovely tin, which also has a balloon, party blower thingy (you know the ones I mean) and a candle. Perfect to send to someone as a little gift.


What I liked most about Baker Days was the fact that it was super easy to order and get it delivered. And it meant that I didn't have to worry about making a snazzy (urgh) Pinterest cake. And lucky for you I have two of these lovely letterbox cakes up for offer! And they don't have to be birthday ones. You can have whatever you want on it. Fill out the rafflecopter below and two winners will be chosen for next week's Festive Favourites. Good Luck!


We did get this cake sent to review and if you would like to visit the Baker Days site check it out here.

  6. I'd get the cake for my daughter's 5th birthday in January, a little home cake, as opposed to the school and party cakes. I swear, it's cake city.
