Anchor have a brand new rewards scheme, the Anchor Rewards Club, where you can collect points by entering codes on special packs of Anchor butter, Anchor spreadable and Anchor Lighter spreadable. Once you have enough points you can exchange them for rewards, which are gorgeous kitchenware items like cake tins, butter dishes, tea towels and also dining out discount vouchers. If you are like me you can never have too much kitchenware and I will be saving my vouchers.
I was excited to be asked to take part in the Anchor Cooking Challenge. Anchor would send me a couple of kitchenware items and I needed to come up with a recipe which used the items and Anchor butter or cream. It sounded like a fun challenge to me so I accepted. I received a cake tin and some silicon cupcake cases so it looked like I was going to be baking this weekend.
I decided that I was going to make some cupcakes to start with, so I got the ingredients ready. I used my Vanilla cupcake recipe but I decided to go for a nautical theme in honour of Anchor.
Here are my finished sailing boat cupcakes complete with anchors. I was very impressed with the silicon cupcake cases, I have never used these before as I always used paper cases. These worked really well, were easy to remove and of course can be reused which is a bonus. The cupcakes tasted nice as well, a view from above shows the stars and sprinkles my son added for decoration.
We then decided to make some scones as we had some Anchor squirty cream that really needed to be used. I can’t think of anything nicer than a scone with jam and cream with a cup of tea on a Sunday afternoon. My son helped me with the scones, here is he rolling them out.
This is the finished result
I’m working with Anchor to promote their brand new Rewards Club, find out how you can get some of their kitchenware as well as more prizes on their website.
