Signed book and goodies competition - rafflecopter!

As a thank you for all of your support and encouragement I thought I would hold a competition to win a signed copy of my book and some kitchenware goodies!

I will also be opening a page on facebook where I can run baking challenges from the book, see how you work with the recipes and share the start of book 2, ie finding out what you would like to see and ideas for different packaging ideas etc:)

If you cant wait for the competition to end you can buy the book from Amazon!
