I do! I do! - I promised some new and exciting things happening this year at Kiwicakes. I am pleased to announce one of these things today. We are now offering to our Kiwicakes members the Cake Craft & Decoration magazine from the UK. Our first issue will be available from March 24th. You will be able to purchase single copies at 14.99 as each issue arrives. I will load each issue to the website separately, as it becomes available.
However from today, I am pleased to offer the magazine on subscription for 12 months for 203.88 (this includes standard post and packaging of $2 per issue). The magazine runs a calendar month behind the UK, so you will be purchasing the February issue in March 2011.
Here's a little insight in to what you'll see in the February issue.
