You know that excited feeling you get when you open your mail box to find one of those little cards that lets you know you have a parcel waiting? I had that feeling today. Though admittedly I though perhaps it would be the zippers I had ordered since they are overdue to come in, but instead it was a lovely polka dotted package from Germany. It was my Cakes Addict 2 swap. Excitement rushed over me.
I rushed home, threw off my shoes, coat, hat, and scarf and promptly opened the package. I absolutely love the surprise involved in swaps, you just never know what kind of goodies could be inside, and goodies there were! Inside was the most delightful collection of cupcake/baking items I could feast my eyes upon, and a special little postcard pertaining to my allergies, which was a real comfort.
The cake mix she sent was a Donau Waves mix, which I've never had before in my life nor, admittedly, have I really ever heard of. It will be exciting to try it out, and that shouldn't be too hard since she translated the package for me. Such a delight, and I couldn't be happier.
With packages and wonderful swappers like this, it's no wonder people get addicted to swapping. So to my wonderful swap partner, a big thank you!!!
