The smell of cupcakes...

I had been on the hunt for a while for this product! Well, not this particular one, anything that fitted its description, but came across this baby first.

There is a small outlet village about 20 minutes from where I live, I actually bought this about 2 months ago, but felt that I needed to share it with you all because its gorgeous.

Basically the hunt started when I walked into a home furnishings store and it smelt like cakes, I asked an assistant if it was a special plug in that they were using, but in fact they were actually just baking cookies as a promo at the back of the shop! That would have been a big YAY for everyone else, but for me, I wanted the bottle of what ever that smell was so that my room could smell like a bakery! So since then I'd been on the hunt for something that would do it!


(yes thats Elvis in the picture, my room has a rock n roll theme and i bought it at the boot sale for a bargain)


I found this candle in a home store outlet shop (not the one i was originally in) and my face filled with joy when I smelt it and realised it was what I'd be after! It smelt SO much like cakes, not a fake cake smell, like it was a REAL cake. Its adorable and has cute little faux sprinkles on top!

I love burning this in my room, I do wish it would smell a bit stronger and fill the room, however my mum can smell as soon as she walks in my door so maybe its just me! The hunt hasn't ended, and I don't think it ever will. I will always long for more things to make my room smell of cakes, without having made any effort to make any!

For those interested, I found it on the internet here. It is in euro's but I believe you can still purchase it over here.
 Is this to sickly sweet for you, or would love a product like this?
Lots of love,
Gemma.
