Celebrate the Royal Baby with a bun in the oven

I have fond memories of Belling cookers, when I moved into my first home the previous owners had left behind a little Belling. It did the job just fine until we could afford a larger cooker.

So, mix an impending Royal birth and a Belling and you get the following:

“British cooking brand Belling has created a special edition of its classic Baby Belling oven to celebrate the impending birth of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s child.

To celebrate the forthcoming birth of the Royal Baby to Prince William and Catherine this July, heritage British cooking brand Belling has created a one-off special edition of its well-loved Baby Belling oven – the Royal Baby Belling.

Created in a choice of two traditional baby colours – Bouncing Baby Blue and Perfect in Pink – the special edition Royal Baby Belling has been created to satisfy and celebrate the country’s current state of baby-mania ahead of the Royal Baby’s birth. Belling is also offering a one-of-a-kind Royal Baby Belling oven as a unique commemorative item to a lucky winner who guesses the Royal Baby’s correct gender and birth date in a draw on its Facebook page.

Jane Rylands, Marketing Communications Manager at Belling, said: “The Baby Belling is the most iconic member of the Belling family and we wanted to help celebrate Prince William and Catherine’s joyous news – creating a special one-off edition of the Baby Belling is a fitting tribute to the newest member of the Royal family.

“As a heritage British brand of over 100 years, we’re thrilled to welcome Catherine and Prince William’s new arrival. Perhaps the Royal Baby Belling will be the first oven that the Royal Baby learns to cook on one day in the future!”

For the chance to win a unique Royal Baby Belling in a choice of Bouncing Baby Blue or Perfect in Pink, visit Belling’s Facebook page and guess the gender and birth date of the Royal Baby”

Belling has been at the heart of British cooking for a century and now four generations of cooks have grown up with a Belling appliance in their kitchen. Established in 1912 by Charles Reginald Belling, Belling is now one of the UK’s best known and longest established cooking appliance brands, a reputation built on producing innovative yet affordable family-friendly appliances with mass market appeal.
Combining ‘family friendly’ with cutting edge technology is no mean feat, but in 2009 Belling led the way in induction, bringing the technology’s Faster, Smarter, Safer and Greener credentials to a much wider audience with the launch of a number of world firsts.

Made in Britain:
Today, Belling is proud to be part of the only major cooking appliance manufacturer still producing in the UK, making uniquely British products for British cooks. Belling products are made with pain-staking attention to detail and the factory is purposely split into small teams who work solely on just one product, carefully assembling each and every appliance from the ground up, by hand.

Good luck if you decide to enter, I’m torn between the two colours, my daughter would prefer the pink but I have a blue kitchen.
