20 Years of Cake Magic PHOTO CONTEST
It's been 20 years since Konitor & Cook opened its first shop in the backstreets of Waterloo. To mark our big birthday, we’re giving you reason to celebrate with a chance to win signature K&C cakes and brownies every week, as well as a grand prize of a day with our founder, King of Cakes Gerhard Jenne, including some fantastic behind-the-scenes action, after which you'll take home quite a lot of cake indeed.
We want to see your moments of Cake Magic from the last 20 years. We’re looking for photos of you and your favourite Konditor & Cook cakes or treats at home, at our shops, or anywhere else, celebrating moments big and small: birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, holidays, or just everyday moments of cake bliss!
There are three ways to enter our online contest:
(1) Like us on Facebook and submit your photo to our Cake Magic Moments gallery. Make sure to add a great caption!
(1) Follow us on Twitter (www.twitter.com/konditorandcook) and tweet a photo @konditorandcook of your Cake Magic moment along with the hashtag #cakemagic.
(2) Follow us on Pinterest (www.pinterest.com/konditorandcook) and upload a photo of your Cake Magic moment to one of your boards, or simply re-pin one of our cakes. Remember to put the tag #cakemagic in your description so we can find it - don't forget a fantastic caption!
We'll choose a winning moment every Friday at 5:00 pm. The final deadline is 5:00, Friday, 20 September, after which we will choose the most magical moment of all as our grand prize winner! See http://www.konditorandcook.com/blog?tag=cakemagic for all details, and submit your photos to win!

#news - Spring is in the air. We can feel the weather warming up the city coming back to life, and we're turning up our ovens to help fuel the spring awakening.
The online shop is now populated by cakes, chocolates, and gifts: Our signature Magic Cakes, lemon with marzipan and apricot jam, come in pastoral hues of pink and marigold, decorated with springtime wildflowers. Simnel, that traditional English cake of spices, fruit, and almond paste, takes two forms - a family-sized cake and a gift-sized loaf in the shape of an owl. Chocolate Easter eggs abound in all forms from mini eggs to ostrich-sized. Cupcakes, cupcakes, cupcakes. And the hot cross bun transformed into a gooey white chocolate blondie.
All can be reserved to pick up in-store, or ordered for home delivery.
Take a woodland walk with us as you Spring into Easter, and step into Konditor & Cook!
#news - Isn't there someone you've been meaning to ring? She's a lovely lady and you may know her as Mum. We get that you're busy, but would it hurt you to pick up the phone now and then? At least there's one thing guaranteed not to disappoint: Konditor & Cook's online shop is now stocked with Mother's Day treats, like a chocolate and vanilla Curly Whirly cake heart enrobed in marzipan, or lemon magic cakes that spell out 'I ♥ Mum'. If she has a sweet tooth, she won't be able to fault you for much after receiving any of these edible gifts - especially when they're delivered right to her door.
Mother's Day is Sunday, 10th March, so be sure to order online by 4 pm on Wednesday, 6th March for weekend delivery! Mum's the word...
