I am excited to share with you that I was selected to be a Gay Lea Ambassador and as part of this great opportunity I was invited to attend the 2014 Royal Agricultural Winter Fair. As part of the Fair Gay Lea provided their delicious butter for the Butter Sculpting Competition, with winners being judged today! I had a great time at the Fair and it was really fun to see the amazing butter sculptures. My favourite was The Town of Musicians of Bremen (after the folk tale) and is the top right photo below . . .
In honour of Royal Agricultural Winter Fair and as a proud supporter, Gay Lea is holding a contest to see how people enjoy their favourite shortbread cookie! You can enter by sharing a photo on Twitter and/or Instagram with the hashtag #GayLeaShortbread showing how you enjoy your favourite shortbread.Three (3) winners will be chosen at random on December 1st, 2014. Participants will have the chance to win ONE of the following prizes: one (1) KitchenAid Stand Mixer or (1) of two (2) year’s supply of Gay Lea products!
The contest opens November 7, 2014 at 12:00am ET and ends November 30, 2014 at 11:59pm ET. Entrants must be a resident of Canada, however those in Quebec are unfortunately unable to participate. Full rules and regulations HERE. Participants must share one photo and include the hashtag #GayLeaShortbread to be considered. Winners will be selected randomly.
Gay Lea will be giving away their own shortbread cookies at the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair, so if you are attending the fair on Sunday, November 16th they will have the chance to try out Gay Lea’s shortbread (using Gay Lea butter, of course!) during their “Christmas at the Royal” event. The Royal Agricultural Winter Fair runs from November 7 to November 16, 2014.
I had a great time at The Royal so be sure to check it out. It is especially a great event to take the kids to as there is so much to see and lots of animals. I really enjoyed watching some of the judged horse events in the arena, as well as checking out all of the food vendors (of course!).
Also, stay tuned for my great family favourite shortbread recipe which I will be posting next week. I will be doing some baking this weekend and maybe some holiday decorating too!
