Picnic Hamper

Picnic Hamper

Tomorrow is the beginning of International Picnic Week so we wanted to give you some inspiration and show you our dream picnic using our free from baking mixes. We used our gluten free carrot cake and banana bread for our picnic hamper.

Picnics can be hard for people with allergies, especially finding foods that cater for everyone. We have got you covered with our allergy friendly baking mixes to create the perfect Picnic Hamper.

These are a perfect picky sweet picnic, packed with cakes, fruit and our Gnawbles for a chocolate fix too. The best thing about a picnic is you can choose your favourite foods so we have lots of different baking mixes that would be perfect for this occasion.

Now the weather is warming up, we are so excited for the picnic season which means lots of baking and spending time with friends and family. ⁠
