The Make Pack Giveaway!


Recently, a company called The Make Pack contacted me to see if I would like to give one of their ‘Make Packs’ a try.


A Make Pack, available to order via their website,  is a box, containing all the ingredients you need to make something delicious. They provide you with everything measured out, give you the instructions but let you do the fun part of actually making your sweet creation.



And there are loads of Make Packs to choose from. They include – a triple layer chocolate fudge cake, white chocolate cupcakes with chai butter cream, lemon marshmallows with toasted coconut, salted toffee with chocolate and hazelnut, even spelt bread loaves. That’s not all, so pop over to website and take a look.

I opted for the lemon marshmallows rolled in toasted coconut option. I opened my Make Pack to find the individual ingredients in separate bags, pots and bottles. All numbered too.


The instructions were wrapped around the box and clearly explained each step to make my marshmallows, which is where the numbered packs were all explained. A bit like baking by numbers.

I have made my own marshmallows before, and this was not too daunting a task for me. If you have a sugar thermometer and a food mixer this would be a cinch for you. The marshmallows were delicious and fairly easy to whip up.


Make Packs are a great gift idea for a foodie friend, or if you are perhaps not too confident in the kitchen but want to make something impressive. They start at £9.95 for a box, up to £16.45 for the Chocolate Fudge Cake or Hazelnut Cake. They even sell bags, tags and ties to gussy up your creation, if  you are gifting it.


And two lucky Cakeyboi visitors get a chance to win a Make Pack of their choice! Simply by entering via the Rafflecopter thingamajig below, two winners get to choose which Make Pack they would like to be sent in the post. The giveaway is open to UK residents only and closes on midnight on the 26 February 2015 – good luck everyone!
