Cake Decorating with ‘I Just Love It’

A while ago we were invited to a lovely event with online personalised store ‘I Just Love It’.

We were there to view some of their lovely products, but to also have a fun morning with other bloggers and members of the press decorating cakes!

I Just Love It are a delightful online gift shop who have been in the gift/personalised gift business for around seven years. They used to be GoneDigging.co.uk, so-called because  they were ‘digging up the perfect gift idea.’ After recently changing the name, I Just Love It would like to spread the word about their fantastic gifts and want the recipient of their gift to think, ‘I just love it.’

With kids’ books, alcohol treats, personalised gifts, toys, accessories, sweets, sporty, homely and jaw droppingly stylish gift ideas, even some pet presents…. there is something for everyone here.

So back to the cake making! Two professional bakers were on hand to help… they introduced all the decorations to us (we wouldn’t be actually BAKING the cakes, just decorating them! Phew! Although getting the buttercream and the royal icing perfect was still a bit of a challenge for little old me!

My lovely friend Jacinta who blogs at Jacintaz3 was there and we had a bit of a giggle as we whisked!

We also got to chocolate dip strawberrries – Yum!

My 4 finished cupcakes! Not very exciting, but the toppings were a little limited, plus we had a toddler helping at our table who took most of the decorations for himself (that’s my excuse anyway) ;)

We had to offer one of our cakes to be judged in the friendly comp afterwards so of course, my little Santa here, who I think looks amazing, was my entry!

One of the judges being the very lovely PR girl for ‘I Just Love It’, Sophie, who organised this fun event. And actually, my little Santa did extremely well and was runner up! He was pipped to the winning post by a super fantastic Christmas Tree!

After the cupcakes, we had some refreshments, (and cakes) then were handed a goodie bag filled with some brilliant ‘I Just Love It’ personalised treats, as a thank you for attending!

I received some lovely personalised pencils, one set for each of my smaller children. They are good quality and come in a beautiful presentation box. These will make fabulous Christmas presents so I’ve put them away, the kids haven’t seen them yet! This rolling pin and spoon with my name on made me chuckle! Personalised kitchenware! Love it! My kids thought these were brilliant!

There was also some lovely ‘Thank You’ chocolates which the children and I shared… they were delicious!

‘I Just Love It’ say their aim is “to make it super simple for you to stand out from the crowd – wherever in the world you may be, and whatever your taste and budget. What this means is that we’re constantly hunting down new gift ideas and innovative ways of making something original, personal and beautiful”

We had such a lovely morning with ‘I Just Love It’. They are a great company with fantastic products. They even provided me with a prize for my mammoth Christmas giveaway… a large personalised gift sack! 

I will definitely be heading back to this place for gifts in the future.
