We only went and won a SILVER JUNIOR DESIGN AWARD....

Kate and I started up Craft & Crumb only 18 months ago to help parents make fabulous homemade cakes for their children's birthdays - we would never have believed that in that short space of time our cakes would have adorned party tables all over the UK (and even as far as Australia) and that we would go on to win a prestigious Junior Design Award! In celebration we're offering 10% off all our Cake Kits until the end of August - simply enter WINNERWINNER at the checkout.  

Thank you to all our customers who have bought our cakes, bought again for a sibling, purchased our biscuit kits, generously shared their photos and given us wonderful reviews and feedback - we hugely appreciate you all and look forward to bringing you more new birthday cake kits and seasonal goodies in the near future!

Happy baking

L&K xx

UNICORN POPCORN

UNICORN POPCORN

 

The world's love of all things unicorn seems to be going strong and is showing no signs of abating any time too soon, especially in the world of food! We've seen unicorn poop, unicorn freakshakes, unicorn arctic roll (one of our personal faves,) unicorn fudge and now we introduce THE uniCORN (the genius marriage of all things unicorn and snacktastic popcorn!)  What's not to like about this deliciously pretty snack....each piece of popcorn is transformed into a pastel, swirly, sprinkly nugget of bliss! We think little bowls of these would be perfect at a children's unicorn party or with big or little friends at a sleepover party ...  Here is the recipe from Bethcakes.com...enjoy!!

UNICORN POPCORN

Author: Beth Branch

Ingredients

250g popcorn (microwave popcorn - approx 3 bags)

1 1/2 cups  of wilton colourburst brights candy melts white

1/2 cup of wilton candy melts purple

1 cup of wilton candy melts white (optional)

Small colourful sprinkles

Pink heart and gold star sprinkles

Instructions
  1. Pop one bag of popcorn according to package directions. Transfer to a large bowl and remove any unpopped kernels.
  2. Pop the second bag of popcorn and place in seperate bowl
  3. Pop the third bag and place in another bowl  (So you'll have 3 bowls.) Remove unpopped kernels.
  4. Melt ColorBurst candy melts according to package directions. Pour over the popcorn in one of the bowls and use a rubber spatula to stir until coated. Transfer to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Spread out into an even layer and immediately sprinkle with sprinkles. Let the candy coating set and then break clumps back into pieces.
  5. Combine ½ cup blue candy melts and ½ cup white candy melts. Heat for 30 seconds, stir, and repeat. Pour over one of the other bowls of popcorn and stir until coated. Spread out on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. (I used one baking sheet for the white popcorn and fit both the purple and blue on a second baking sheet.) Sprinkle with sprinkles and let candy coating set. Break popcorn back into pieces.
  6. Repeat with purple and white candy melts.
  7. Combine all popcorn in a bowl or bag and enjoy!
