Why I launched an Online Shop (+ Giveaway!)

Sweet Layer Cake Admin

Posted on October 01 2017

Hello Cakies and welcome to my new site and blog. I've been working on this site for the past 3 months but the idea and concept of the store has been in the works for almost 3 years now. 

Today feels like Christmas for me. It's such an exciting feeling to get to show the world something you're passionate about and I currently have butterflies in my stomach while I write this blog post. 

So why an online shop? Well, I love baking and my baking addiction gave me the opportunity of curating a ton of cute baking/decorating supplies, most of which I sourced from across the globe. This meant high shipping charges and long delivery timelines. I also have an unhealthy addiction to sprinkles and my favourite blogger Sweetapolita (actually the best.....) came out with a line of sprinkles that I just had to get my hands on. If you know me personally, you know that I don't do things by halves so I decided to source all my favourite things and have them on one site for me, my cake friends and all you lovely cake addicts in the UK.

Launching an online shop has also helped me with staying in touch with my long term goals for Sweetlayercake. I love baking and that will never stop - I promise!

I will be adding more items that I've curated for the shop in the coming weeks so I hope you stay in touch with me via my newsletter and through my social media outlets. 

So on to that awesome giveaway right!

To celebrate the launch of the shop and to also say thank you for sticking around, I'd like to give one lucky winner the opportunity of winning a couple of my favourite things. They are:

1. Shoebakery Pink Sprinkle Wallet 

2. Meri Meri Pastel Birthday Candles

3. Sweetapolita Sprinkle Enamel Pin

4. Sweetapolita Sprinkle Mix

Wowzer! that's a bunch of sprinkle-tastic amazing gifts to be won right? 

Don't worry though if you don't win this time round, there will be free gifts sent with the first 10 orders and while stock lasts.
