Someone I know recently had a birthday - which feels like about half the people I know at the moment! Anyway, trying to keep in line with my "no shop-bought" policy, I decided to gift them a cake, but not a just an out-of-the-oven one. Rather, inspired by this recipe, I packed all the dry ingredients in a jar, flour, brown sugar, white sugar, chocolate chips, ground almonds, cocoa powder and chopped almonds...
...printed out a personalised recipe card and attached it to said jar with a string of crochet:
And voilà! An easy, thoughtful birthday gift that went down a treat and delighted its recipient!
Have you ever done this as a gift? Would you do it? I plan on doing it for Christmas as well. Let me know your views on this! :) Thanks for reading, and see you soon! xxx
