The Snow Day Bake-Off

I love snow and I’ve been wistfully following the flurries around the UK on the news, Twitter, blogs and Facebook, wondering if it will head my way. I have a section in my new cookbook listing things to do on snow days and I’m looking forward to doing them when I get my own snow day. Until then, I thought we could have a little food blogging event and you can send me pictures of the snow where you are so I get to see it, along with the lovely bakes you make. What do you think; sound like fun?

To enter, all you have to do is bake something yummy and take a photo of the snow or frost and then blog about it, with a link back to this post. It looks like the winter chill is set to last so let’s set a deadline of 12th December and then I’ll do a round-up of all the snowy photos and bakes. I can’t wait to see them! You can also post on Twitter using the tags #SnowDayBakeOff and #uksnow. Have fun!

    Oh, dear… I will have to wait for the Easter Bake since I am in Rome and we have no snow – not usually. It snowed for 20 minutes last winter and the whole province came to a halt!

    It was a steamy, wet, rainy 16C, yesterday!

    Ciao, and as always, thank you so much for the invite. Your last cooking event (in the bag) really inspired me so I look forward to the next one!

    Oooh I would love to take part – but I think I am in the only part of the country that hasn’t had snow yet! I hope a heavy frost will do otherwise!

    Oh definitely, me too! We have enough snow to share!

    I love this idea Julia,

    my partner is currently stuck in Lincolnshire in the house whilst I managed to get out before the snow came down… dont know if I wish I was there or not?!?!

    If I get back at the weekend i’ll make something for this little snowy challenge!

    How fun! I wish it was snowing here in the southern part of the US. 🙂 You never know, though. Mother Nature may pull a fast one on us. Cheers!

    Hey guys. Wow, this is SO exciting! Don’t worry if you don’t have snow, you can use a picture of snow or frost from a past winter.

    Jason – absolutely, rainy days are just as good as snow days for baking!

    Wow – this looks like being one popular event!

    Perhaps everyone is stuck at home baking instead of going to work?
