Campervan Cakes and Christmas Cakes

Just had to share a photo of the cake our 15 year old son made for his Dad's birthday - well done son!
Complete with marzipan and icing to match our own Splitty, coconut grass, chocolate crunchy rocks and a jelly stream all to remind us of a wonderful weekend camping with the Late Bay Club in our van (we were invited, honest!) at Malham Cove in Yorkshire.

He has also made our Christmas cake - taken from a recipe in Decembers Good Food Magazine.  
The Edd Kimber Family Christmas Cake on page 192.  
It has come out really well and we can't wait to try it!

Campervan Kindle and iPad Covers - great Christmas gifts :)

Just found these fabulous cases / covers for Kindles and iPads made by WhimsyWooDesigns on Etsy and based on the VW Campervan (Kombi / Bus).  Thought they would make a fantastic Christmas present for someone!  (Husband - are you reading this!!!).

Campervan Christmas Knits

If anyone is stuck for a unique and personal handmade gift to give the VW Campervan (Kombi / Bus ) fan in their life why not have a go at one of our knitting patterns?  You can make them a really personal present by using your own colours!  We currently have Beanie Hats, Egg Cosies and Blankets with both the Splitscreen (Splittie) and the Bay versions.  I'm also working on a Kids Christmas Jumper (sweater) (I'm sure you could use the chart for your favourite adult jumper pattern too!)
My patterns are listed on our website SnuginaDub (just click on the "craft stuff" tab) and also on Etsy

Happy crafting this Christmas!
