Following on from my carb-fest at La Madre Bakery recently I am excited to offer a giveaway of a selection of La Madre‘s new Christmas range!

The sweet and savoury treats come presented in a reuseable cookie tin and inside you’ll find a sample of:

  • Vanilla Snowflake Shortbread made from Heilala Vanilla vanilla paste and topped with a sweet snowflake shaped fondant;
  • Dark chocolate dipped dehydrated blood orange slices;
  • Gingerbread Angels;
  • buttery Stained-glass Window Shortbread, which make lovely edible Christmas ornaments;
  • Bite-sized Parmesan and Nigella Shortbread;
  • Cranberry & Pistachio Shortbread; and
  • Almond & Vanilla Biscotti.

To win this box of deliciousness all you have to do is leave a comment below and a winner will be drawn randomly. Good luck!
