{CLOSED} Win a Cornishware jug

11 May

It’s my birthday today… so I’m offering you a present!

This lovely Cornishware measuring jug is ready and waiting for a new home with one very lucky Decorator’s Notebook reader.

I picked this graduated measuring jug for you because it’s nice and versatile. It’s a good size for milk, custard or sauces on the table and it’s pretty enough for flowers too. And of course, it’s got the measuring guide inside so it’s essential for cooking and baking.

T.G. Green has been making pottery since the 1920s and this classic blue and white striped pattern is probably the most famous. It’s called Cornishware because the design is reminiscent of the white-capped waves seen around the wild Cornish coast.

This giveaway has now finished – thank you to everyone who entered. The lucky winner will be contacted in the next few days.

THE SMALL STUFF: Because the jug is fragile, this giveaway is open to readers in the UK and Western Europe only (sorry). The winner will be randomly selected from valid entries received  by 5pm on Sunday 20th May. Please remember to include your email address when asked in the comment box – this won’t be published but I’ll need it to contact you if you’re the lucky winner. The winner will receive one gift-boxed Graduated Jug worth £25. This prize is kindly offered by T.G. Green, the makers of Cornishware.

    Call me a boring traditionalist but I’d go Victoria Sponge. Even better if my Ma made it for me. Just about to retweet now. Thanking you.

    Happy birthday! If it was an imaginary birthday cake I’d make a multi-layered rainbow cake with *at least* one layer of red velvet…in reality it would probably be a classic Victoria sponge – which would be good enough too!

  6. Hannah @ Sparrow + Spark! May 17, 2012 at 16:02 #

    My cake would be a simple vanilla sponge with copious amounts of buttercream frosting. My husband makes an amazing version!

    Happy birthday to you. As it will be my Jubilee this year I shall get Hubby to make me a truly scrumptious rhubarb and orange cake with flake almonds (Waitrose recipe) the jug will hold lots of cream to serve with it.

    Mmmmmm birthday cake. I would say Nigel Slater’s ginger cake with clementine icing (actually made that for my friend’s birthday at the weekend) or Nigella Lawson’s clementine cake (sensing a theme here).

    Happy Belated BIrthday! I would make a huge Chocolate Guiness cake and serve it on my new vintage blue glass cake stand! Also I’ve just retweeted this giveaway so please can I have 2 entries?

    Oooh, great competition! Mine would have to be a bakewell tart if that can count? Yum! Got my fingers crossed now as that jug is too pretty! Have sent a link on Twitter too :-) Laura.

    It would have to be a delicious walnut cake which my Nan taught me to make as a small girl, a three layered cake with butter cream complete with american frosting icing on top!
    Truly delicious!

    Too cute to even bake with, love it!!

    I’d bake myself a victoria sponge cake, with lots of strawberry jam! Nice dollop of ice cream on the side aswel!!

    Every year on my birthday my grandmother used to bake a wonderful cake called a Russian wedding cake. I don’t know if it is indeed Russian but it is rich and sweet and tricky to make. It is basically a baked shortbread which you then have to slice into layers in between which goes chocolate icing. A tiny slice provides you ample energy to get through a birthday! When she died we thought the recipe was gone too. But miraculously my mom found it last year and this year we want to attempt it! Happy birthday!

    Coffee and walnut sponge. Mmmmmmmmm.

    My 30th is on June 4th this year – the Queens Jubilee bank holiday weekend. So I plan on making a traditional Victoria Sponge (since my name is Victoria I’ve always loved this cake!!) and decorating it with white icing, blueberries and strawberries to make the shape of the Union Jack. A great tasting cake for my birthday and perfectly patriotic too! I’d fill the jug with lots of lovely Pimms and share it all with all my friends!!
    I will follow and RT this competition!

    Carrot cake with a side of chocolate sponge followed by a lemon drizzle! Ps I’ve followed and re tweeted!

  17. Simon munn May 11, 2012 at 18:00 #

    Ginger cake with CORNISH clotted cream of course

  18. Michelle Y May 11, 2012 at 17:06 #

    Happy Birthday! And how nice of you to share a present with us. Well I just like cakes generally. The beetroot/chocolate combo I made for my birthday this year was yum. I would really like to try some sort of peanut butter cake. Hope you have a good day.

    Happy, Happy Birthday :-)
    Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh, love carrot cake! Part of your 5 a day being carrot too ;-) Or at least that’s how I make myself feel better after a slice too large ;-) Have sent a RT on Twitter too. xx

    Ooh I love TG Green. Could I make lots of little ones…raspberry friands. Small and fluffy (like me). Happy Birthday!

  21. Michelle May 11, 2012 at 15:47 #

    Happy birthday to you! I would make my best Victoria Sandwich cake filled with homemade lemon curd and mascarpone. Mmmm.

  22. aimeeandthewolf May 11, 2012 at 13:32 #

    Well being the greedy guts and cake love that I am I would have to make a three tiered cake… lets say three layers, each one indicating a passing section of time in the day because then there would be no reason to not eat cake for every meal! OK….so layer one would be breakfast, so how about blueberry and banana – a great and healthy way to start the day. Lunch….well that would have to be a plain baked cheese cake obviously! Lastly dinner…well that would have to be midnight sin chocolate cake – dark and gooey like the night!

  23. Patricia Gill May 11, 2012 at 13:22 #

    Happy birthday!!! I’d make a chocolate fudge cake. Too much chocolate is never enough. x

  24. girlabouttech May 11, 2012 at 11:10 #

    Happy birthday lovely! This jug is sooooooooo pretty. I’d fill it with custard and make a yummy peach cobbler. But my fave all-time cake has to be a proper Black Forest Gateau (no, Mum can’t go to Iceland for it!). Well, I’m an ’80s child after all!

  25. Simpkinella May 11, 2012 at 09:47 #

    I love your blog it’s inspired me to do an.interiors course. My cake would be coffee and walnut. Happy birthday!.

  26. happygrape2 May 11, 2012 at 08:55 #

    chocolate cake!

  27. Katrin May 11, 2012 at 08:52 #

    Uhm, reading comprehension zero. Strawberry cake! It´s what my mom made for me every year (I´m born in December but we celebrated my birthday in April – complicated story…)

  28. Katrin May 11, 2012 at 08:51 #
