Random Act of Sweetness Week


Come and join the fun with our week of baking and taking to others – a pure random act of kindness.
Most of us have fond memories of home baking and while we may not bake so much any more, for one week we are asking you to join us in baking something/s lovely and delivering it to someone else.
For no good reason other than the joy of giving.

Once you have baked and packed, then don’t forget to take a photo, email it to me [email protected] or post it on facebook or instagram, don’t forget to hashtag #foodloversnz or #randomactofsweetnessnz

If you are struggling to decide then how about you pick from one of our classic recipes.
