fancy some mr kipling cakes this valentine's day?


Battenberg, Bakewell tarts and buttery shortcake biscuits with a strawberry filling... there's not much sweeter in life than a teatime treat. I might even go as far as to say I love a cuppa and a cake, whether with my other half, girl gang or one of my many sisters. Mr Kipling are always a go-to choice with your brew. So it's no surprise their perfect pastel pick-me-ups work so well over the Valentine's season too. Like their lovely Summer, festive or limited edition ranges, I've fallen in love with the illustrated pink packaging, as well as the tasty Flower Whirls. The new way to send flowers this season.
