    Happy Birthday!
    I Love Fancie.!! Would love to win these for my wedding for numerous reasons: a) there are 80 guests at my wedding b) they taste hella good c) they have shut the Fancie. in Sheffield Uni students union and I am devastated! I used to frequently visit inbetween teaching etc, and now I don’t have time to go into town/Sharrowvale Rd to get one 🙁 d) everyone deserves to taste a Fancie cake at least once, especially my nearest and dearest who are travelling 200+ miles for the wedding!

    Mmmm… free cake from my favourite blog, can it get any better than this?! Happy Birthday (again) first and foremost. And then my reasons why I would love to be the winner… I won’t make up any story, I’ll just be honest…. My wedding is on the 1st of September 2012. I will have been dieting from the 1st of September 2011 (I’m thinking, if I do it slowly, I won’t put it back on, not as quickly at least!!) So, basically, I would love to win as after almost 12 months of dieting, I will need cake. A LOT of cake!! And I promise to share one or two with you as well Julia!! 🙂

    I cannot believe the cake porn on this blog at the moment it is not good for my waistline or my willpower for my diet. I don’t know why I deserve to win I just think I do. I am Fancies biggest fan, hands down. Amanda who runs Fancie is not only the loveliest woman but such an inspiration and Fancie have become a tradition with me and my little lady in that she has to have a Fancie mini victoria cupcake whenever we go shopping to Meadowhall and it wouldn’t be right not to have Fancie at my wedding.x

    I think I should win because I’ve already had some awful experiences in planning my wedding…co-ordinators who were rude as a wedding dress shop that spent an hour calling me fat!
    I’m marrying the most amazing man ever, it would be nice for something good to happen!
