Win! A Made in England rolling pin from Bodie & Fou


On the 11th day of Christmas, Domestic Sluttery gave to me! A ceramic rolling pin from Kathleen Hills!

It's our penultimate Christmas competition so we made sure that we picked something really lovely from our friends at Bodie & Fou (although to be honest, everything in their shop is gorgeous and has us swooning). Our pick for this comp is a gorgeous Made In England rolling pin by Kathleen Hills. Once you've made your brilliant pastry creation, just roll the stamp over it to give it an extra special touch.

Want to win? Just tell us in the comments below what Christmas treats you're baking this year. Have you been making our mince pie fudge, or are you going to try and make some Christmas sugar cookies? Maybe you fancy making little gingerbread houses. Just leave your comment below before midnight tonight (UK time), and we'll pick a winner at random and announce it our final Christmas competition tomorrow.

Wondering who won the shoes from Upper Street? We've had loads of entries so we're going to keep you hanging for a little while longer and announce later in the week. Make sure you keep your eyes peeled on Thursday!

Good luck today everyone! We're looking forward to being inspired by all of your Christmas treats.

Oh yawn, small print (read it). The competition will close at midnight (UK time) December 17th. You must be UK based to enter, sorry you lovely overseas readers. If you're anon your entry won't count and if you enter more than once, we'll discount all of your entries and tell you off. The winning entry will be chosen at random and you must claim your prize by midnight on the 20th or it'll be passed to someone else. We've got loads more baking to bring you yet - we're very excited about the peppermint bark.

  6. Not being a bakist, I'm usually much better at consuming than producing - but you've tempted me - this year I have 2 of your printed recipes to take away with me for Christmas week, and hope to work miracles - Christmas Sugar Cookies and the Chocolate Ganache Pie...

  7. Ooooh what a beautiful pin! I would love to use it to make my pickle sausage rolls and cointreau mince pies. I will also be making our yearly treat, a ton of Christmas rocky road.

  8. I am making sugar cookies, voodoo doll gingerbread men ( i know, but they are very cute and you can see by my name very appropriate) and disconbobulated gingerbread men!! I am going to Australia in a couple of months for two years on assignment and would LOVE to have this rolling pin to mark my pastries!!

  9. I've already had to make three batches of fudge, as it keeps mysteriously disappearing. I'm also really looking forward to making stained glass biscuits with my Brownie pack on Wednesday as part of our Christmas celebrations

  15. Thrice weekly batches of Christmas morning muffins from nigella Christmas. Officially our taste of Christmas 2012. They're about 5 minutes in preparation, but will require at least 5 months post-festive diet (especially in the quantities I can inhale)!!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I've been baking macarons (and then scoffing them all!) :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. White chocolate, pistachio and cranberry biscuit cake - unbelievably irresistible (but it's ok, it surely must be 1 of your 5 a day...)

    ReplyDelete
  18. I love marzipan and have leftover dried fruit from baking Christmas puddings and cake, so I'm baking mini stollen to take to my Nan's on Boxing Day

    ReplyDelete
  19. I have homemade mincemeat left over from last year which will be nice and alcoholic now (might add a bit more Brandy for good luck!)so lots of mince pies,a big Christmas pudding,gingerbread men and shortbread... Yummy! x

    ReplyDelete
  20. I've been attempting to make homemade pies of every kind, but as I don't actually own a rolling pin I've been using an empty champagne bottle on the pastry. Sounds fabulous, not really that effective..!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I tried the Gingerbread Mug Houses and was so proud when they worked :) It was the first time making gingerbread and I've been told I have to make gingerbread men for the 'hamper gifts' now too! I just need to stock up on edible glitter...

    ReplyDelete
  22. There will be lots of Lebkuchen in my house this year! They are so yummy and easy to make - even if I cheat a little bit, as we cannot use icing sugar.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Some pistachio and orange stollen, a Yule Log (because a Christmas pudding just doesn't have enough chocolate in!) and a Christmas cake with enough brandy in to render the eater over the legal driving limit with one slice *hic*

    ReplyDelete
  24. Ooooh, oooh, oooh. So far i've made cranberry and pistachio biscotti (it's meant to be for gifts, but i might have nibbled a bit...), chilli chocolate truffles, sea salted chocolate truffles, a gingerbread house, gingerbread shapes for the tree, christmas cake, spiced apple and pecan cake for the strange christmas cake haters; and jars and jars of homemade mincemeat which i'm still inventing things to use it in- so far mince pies, palmiers and slicey things which look like they might fall apart. I do love Christmas baking- you might be able to tell? That rolling pin would get an awful lot of use.

  25. Limoncello mince pies and pistachio mendiants...
    Oh, and your beer fudge!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I've just bought a madeleine tin, so I'm trying those, in all kinds of different flavours!

    ReplyDelete
  27. This year I have made my first ever mince pies - I've always relied on Mum previously but at the grand old age of 24 I decided it was time to DIY - made the pastry from scratch and everything! Problem is, I'm now too scared to do a second batch in case the first was just beginner's luck...

  29. So far I've made gingerbread star biscuits with the little one, chocolate cupcakes (iced snowflakes on the top and clementine butter icing made them Christmassy!) and this week I'm going to attempt stollen - first time baking with yeast 'n all so fingers crossed!

  30. Shortbread... Baking at its deadliest!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Mincemeat pinwheels. Easy and delicious!

    In this jolly period I am keeping the house stocked in festive shaped biscuits and Christmassy topped fairy cakes. One of the many things on my 'to make' list to is a Tunis cake -a copy of a good old retro childhood favourite from the long-gone McVities - there's a blast from the past ........ and so how lovely it would be to win a vintage-style piece of gorgeousness.

  33. I've just made a gorgeous chocolate winter wonderland cottage for my 3 beautiful children complete with (edible!) bunny, robin, tree, holly and hidden presents! This year is all about the homemade, no buying just baking! Off back to the kitchen for me...x

  34. So far I've made a Christmas Cake, Mini Christmas Cakes, Mince pies (with my own home-made mincemeat), a Christmas buffet for 20 (including blinis, and spinach and ricotta pie), I'm also yet to make rum and champagne truffles, some christmas fudge, as well as cinammon cookies, choc chip cookies, and a gingerbread house!!!!!! Thank God I finish law school tomorrow!

  35. A striped chocolate and vanilla cheesecake for those of us that abhor Christmas pudding; truffles for little gifts; edible baubles and possibly some millionaire's shortbread. Not a bloody mince pie in sight!

    ReplyDelete
  36. baumkuchen und a lot of little gingy's :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Pumpkin pie! I made my very first one at Halloween this year and it was delicious!! I'll christmas it up a bit somehow... Maybe whip up some Kahlua cream!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Sausage Rolls (eaten piping hot), Mince Pies some with pastry star lids some with icing tops, Christmas Cornflake wreaths gone off to Daughter's Christmas party today, Christmas Tree Bakes - brownies baked in cases topped with a strawberry- covered in green icing then sprinkles and edibkle glitter, star biscuits and a Yule Log still to come. PS does the rolling pin leave a clear imprint on a forehead of an errant Husband if my Christmas spirit runs low?

  40. This year I'm making chocolate and pistachio biscotti, peppermint patties, Baileys fudge, and adding that all to my lovely best friends Christmas goodie bag.
    Oh and a salted caramel tart for Christmas day, and a Grasshopper pie for Boxing Day. Phew!

    ReplyDelete
  41. This year I'll be making gingerbread men that aren't men but xmas trees. Shortbread stars that are actually stars.

    By popular request I'll be making fairy cakes decorated with smarties and curlywurlys in the stylie of Rudolph :-D

  42. I really want to make the little gingerbread houses you showed us recently. But that is only if I get finished at the sewing machine in time, oh, and put the internet down too.
    If all else fails my 4 year old will bake a batch of biscuits for me and cut them out with her new Christmas cookie cutters.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I've been making Hot Choc Cupcakes, cinder toffee, fudge lots of flavours but rum & raison is our fav! Christmas pud bomb, butter biscuits, cranberry & pistachio biscuits. Few! Only mince pies to go!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I will be making sugar cookie mince pies and eggnogg...hopefully they will make it till Christmas, if not I guess I will just have to make some more. Hard life!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Obligatory sausage rolls, plenty of gingerbread men and then Ottolenghi's Spice cookies, only this time around without the currants...

    ReplyDelete
  46. Gift-wise, I've whipped up a batch of beetroot and ginger chutney (my family, me included, are cheese fiends so anything to accompany it is always a winner) and I've got some Sluttery Limoncello maturing in the cupboard.

    I made sticky toffee cupcakes for the weekend too. Not really Christmassey per se, but bleeding delcious...

    ReplyDelete
  47. A lovely friend gave me some lebkuchen spices so I will be experimenting with those to make some hopefully amazing gingerbread. Also some mince pies and the made in England print would be amazing so I could send them back to France with my boyfriend to show the French we have great baked treats!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I'm making Makowiec (poppyseed cake) as this is a tradition in my family. Although I'm sticking to the traditional Polish recipe, I've decided to throw caution to the wind and stir things up and rebel by using a Hungarian design. Hey, it's Christmas, I'm up for a challenge!

    ReplyDelete
  49. A baked cheese cake, lacto and gluten free!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I am baking mince pie samosas, a light and crispy alternative to the short crust pastry.
