Cake Poll: Fall Treats!

October Cakespy Giveaway!

Sure, the days are getting shorter and cooler, but they're also getting sweeter. Halloween is just around the corner, a sweet kickoff to what promises to be a fall and winter full of pies, puddings and wonderful holiday treats.
And in celebration of all of this sweetness, this month's Cake Poll focuses on fall treats! The lucky winner will receive an original Cakespy watercolor depicting L'il Cuppie being chased by ghosts (pictured top)--looks like they didn't want to share their candy!

How do you enter? Just answer the below questions to be entered in the running! Responses may be entered in the comments section or emailed to jessieoleson@gmail.com.

  • Which do you prefer: candy corn or mellowcreme pumpkins?
  • Fun-size candy bars: do they make you happy or leave you hungry?
  • Trick-or-treaters without costumes: give 'em candy anyway, or turn 'em away?
  • Halloween candy-eating method: eat it as fast as you can, or ration it out to last?
  • Favorite cold-weather beverage: hot apple cider or hot chocolate?
  • Fall pie faceoff: apple or pumpkin?

The fine print: The poll will be closed at 12 p.m PST on Friday, October 17. As usual, the winner will be chosen at random. Entries from the US and beyond are welcome. Your info will never be shared and these questions are solely motivated by our nosy spy tendencies.

 

....and we have a winner! Our winner was JEAN from New Jersey! Jean entered in our comments section and most definitely prefers Candy Corn! While Mellowcreme Pumpkin may not approve, we were more than happy to see the piece of artwork go to such a sweet home!

Hi Jess! What a cute giveaway!

(1) I haven't had the pleasure of mellowcreme pumpkins but I think from the name I'd be a fan. I love candy corn though. I could eat more than one handful!
(2) Fun-size = fun and happy
(3) I usually will give candy if no costume but you can bet they only get one.
(4) Separate into 2 piles: Keep or trade. LOL
(5) ooohh toughie. I like both but I'd say that apple cider is the slight favorite.
(6) Apple!

I hope I win!

1. Which do you prefer: candy corn or mellowcreme pumpkins?
Neither.. They both taste kinda funky. Extra dark chocolate is what I live for.

2. Fun-size candy bars: do they make you happy or leave you hungry?
They are just right!

3. Trick-or-treaters without costumes: give 'em candy anyway, or turn 'em away?
Ask for a trick!

4. Halloween candy-eating method: eat it as fast as you can, or ration it out to last?
Ration it out.. or I'd die from the excess sugar!

5. Favorite cold-weather beverage: hot apple cider or hot chocolate?
Oh, what about a nice cup of hot tea? ;)

6. Fall pie faceoff: apple or pumpkin?
PUMPKIN!

1. Candy corn
2. Both - I'm happy, but I always want more!
3. Give them candy anyway
4. I practically inhale it.
5. Hot chocolate!
6. Pumpkin

October 11 | Unregistered CommenterKathryn

1. Candy corn! Classic and fun to decorate with!

2. Leave me wanting an entire bag of them to truly live out the "fun."

3. Make them work for it. If they have a good excuse, I'll give. But they MUST say "Trick or Treat." It's a big pet peeve when they don't.

4. Eat some, ration some. I become the "Candy Fairy" during that week after Halloween, sharing my wealth of sweets with my buddies.

5. Hot chocolate. It's good year-round. I dare you to name a time when hot chocolate isn't good!

6. Apple.

October 11 | Unregistered CommenterHazelLucia

1. Never had a mellowcreme pumpkin!
2. Oh they make me so happy, because I can snatch one every time I walk by!
3. I've never had a single trick or treater come to my door :( (But I buy candy every year anyway!
4. As fast as I can. Oops.
5. Hot chocolate!
6. Oh I have to choose?? My answer is always both... :)

1.candy corn but it must be made with honey and no wax
2. they make me happy if they have no eww tasting nuts in them
3. well there is the trick option
"HAHA NO CANDY FOR YOU!!" I would sing them a song.
4.Use it in recipes and horde some spooky ones for a Christmas Gingerbread house
5.Hot Cocoa with whipped cream and brazillian dark chocolate sprinkles.
6. If I had to get a pie in the face I choose pumkin. If I am eating the pie then apple.

Winning your wonderful art would be the most fabulous Halloween experience I can think of hands down ... with or wothout a pie in the face.

I actually prefer a good tea latte, but both cider and hot choclate will be consumed in mass quantities over the next few months...
