giveaway time - two cookbooks!

****Contest Closed**** :-(
You know what? I have cabin fever and I'm cranky because we have WAY too many snowstorms already and it's only the beginning of January people. Of course to make myself feel even worse I read the Farmers Almanac and it said we are going to get a ton of storms. Yay! Wonderful. Isn't that great?
So to cheer myself up, I want to make you happy by having a giveaway. See if you're happy then I get happy.
I want to give away a couple fabulous cookbooks. If you are a cake lover; a kicked up cake lover that is, like me, then these are the books for you. The winner will receive BOTH of these cookbooks by Warren Brown. The cake god himself. I adore Warren Brown. He is the owner of Cake Love Bakery. Remember when he had the show Sugar Rush on the Food Network? That was such a good, relaxing show; I miss that. That and Gale Gands Sweet Dreams. I wish Warren would come back to TV, but I hear he's a busy man. If you go check out his website, he has a free cake app. How cool is that? And the best part, I hear he's super sweet--definitely a chill person with mad decorating skills; definitely a super nice person you want to bake and create with. Check out his blog too!


All you have to do is leave ONE comment with your name and email address about your all time favorite cake. And you could win BOTH of these cookbooks. Yep both.
Let's do the drawing on 1/23/2011.
Please no anynomous entries. Have a valid NAME and EMAIL address.
It might help you win if you become a fan on FB & Twitter.
Hahaha, kidding. I kid, I tease.

  1. WHAT a giveaway! I agree....even the South is getting pounded. Whats up with this craziness? I'd love to win these cook books. I haven't had a lot of experience with cake making and would love to expand my skills. I think the best cake I've ever had was a german chocolate cake. My name is Erica ;) and my email address is itzyskitchen at gmail dot com

  3. My all time favorite cake comes from a recipe I found at my Great Grandmother's house. It's called Hummingbird Cake. It is absolutely delicious and always reminds me of being small at Grandma's house.
    The recipe combines banana, cinnamon, walnuts, and crushed pineapples. The flavor is so unique and the recipe is tightly guarded in our family.

  4. My all-time favourite cake? This drumstick cake/pie at my family's favourite Italian restaurant back home. Ice cream with peanut butter layers, crunchy peanuts and chocolate syrup... To. die. for. We always get one piece and the four of us share it. I guess it's also my favourite cake because of all the great moments associated with it... :)

  14. my favorite cake is a single round funfetti cake (meaning you have a spare cake, which is always swell to have around), on top of a layer of chocolate ice cream, itself on top of a layer of chocolate, which is, finally, on top of a cake sized cookie. white frosting. eat alone with your roommate, rejoycing about for once not having a crapton of people over eating your food.

    For my 5th birthday my mom made a huge layered cake for my party and made a Christmas Tree (as my birthday's in December) out of icing that stood about 8 inches tall - 5 inches in diameter, complete with "garland", "colored lights", and a "star" on top. It was the most delicious and moist chocolate fudge cake......yum!

  40. I hear ya on the snow, we have been getting slammed up north! My favorite type of cake was an ice cream cake I made last year for my boyfriend's mom. It had vanilla cake on the bottom layer and strawberry ice in the middle and topped with another layer of vanilla cake. Whipped cream and fresh strawberries on top made it even better.

  76. Carrot Cake with Cream cheese frosting. It was my mom's favorite. She's been gone 7 years and we still have it every Thanksgiving because her birthday is at the end of November. It is my fav not only for the awesome recipe but because it makes me feel so good inside when I remember the reason we eat it.

  82. My friend makes the best cake. She takes a butter recipe cake mix and makes it as directed but she also adds about 2 cups of Peanut Butter Cup ice cream. The ice cream just makes it sooooo moist. Then we top it with a piece of Hershey's Cookies and Cream candy bar. MMMMMMMM! It's so simple but soooooo delicious!

  141. It is way too hard to narrow down to an "all-time-favorite", but one of the top 10 (and most recently made) is a dark chocolate gingerbread. It's super dense, moist, made in a bundt pan & topped with confectioners' sugar. Perfect winter-time cake!

  143. Yay, cookbooks! I read them like text!
    My all time favorite cake is wedding cake, followed closely by birthday cake. Something about them different than any other sort.

  146. Black Magic Cake can satisfy my chocolate/childish/creative desires....anytime! I used to call it, "Aunt Mary Grace's Black Magic Cake," due to the fact it was in upstate New York where I first found this tasty feast in my Great Aunt's kitchen. She was the kind of cook who'd cook with one hand and smoke with the other. Her finished products always brought a bit of heaven to my taste buds (despite the nastiness of the ashes she was sure to have deposited whilst stirring the pot). Yes, Black Magic Cake can bring joy to anyone's heart. I guar.an.tee. My name is Tracy and my email is tip6inc@yahoo.com

  150. My mom's pistachio cake. It's awesome... and it's made with jell-o pistachio pudding mix, box cake mix, and cool whip - all things I NEVER normally bake with. So moist. And pistachio-y. And green. Nothing beats it.

  154. My mom used to get me this regular store-bought sheet cake for my birthday when I was a kid, and there was just one thing that was special about it. It was mocha! I LOOOOOOOVE mocha flavored stuff, and the icing on this cake was to DIE for. I've tried for years to find something similar, and I've never managed. Maybe someday I'll just have to reverse-engineer it.

  155. My all time favorite cake is a German cake with almonds and apricots. I had it when I visited several years ago, and i've never found anything in the states that compares. It was about an inch of almond cake topped with custard, then a gelatin of apricots, orange segments, and slivered almonds. So moist and absolutely amazing!

  169. My favorite cake is my brother's mint chocolate chip ice cream cake with dark chocolate ganache...It is to DIE FOR! The mint infuses the chocolate, and the cake is so moist for an ice cream/flourless...SO GOOD! If I win, I will definitely be sharing the books with him. I can cook a mean dinner, but he is the one to follow it up with a real sweet dessert!
