A few weeks ago, a friend of mine asked me whether Sydney winter gets much colder than what it was at that time, and I confidently reassured her that it didn’t. Never was I so wrong.

Thank you everyone for entering, and I hope you’ll check out Black Gold Velvet Chocolat’s website. We’re lucky to have omnivores out there with the skills to make beautiful chocolate and the generosity and thoughtfulness to make a vegan range!
Fiona, if you could please contact me via my Facebookpage or send me an email at catsmall88 – at – hotmail – dot – com (I’ve written it like that to prevent spammers getting a hold of it), so that I can get your address details!
