Underdog Desserts: A Savory Meets Sweet Giveaway from BK!

Giveaway!
Next time you feel compelled to glove-slap somebody, why not do it in sweet style? Well, you can: CakeSpy is giving away a pair of sweet gloves with cupcake pattern trim--a sweet donation from friends at Bitchin' Lifestyle (you may remember the interview with BK's Nadia G. from a while back?).

What do you have to do to enter?

To Enter, click over to the video about Underdog Vegetables on the Bitchin' Kitchen website--a hilarious roundup and appreciative ode to veggies like brussels sprouts and parsnips--and leave a comment on the site. Love veggies? Go ahead and sing their praises. Still not convinced? Then leave a comment talking up your favorite--wait for it--underdog dessert.

Of course, I'd love to see your comments here about what your favorite underdog desserts too. Perhaps you think coconut macaroons need more love? Or maybe oatmeal cookies have stood in chocolate chip's shadow for too long? Sing the praises of your favorite!

This giveaway will close for entries on Friday, October 9 at 12:00 p.m. PST!

What about fruit? I love a good fall pear/cranberry crumble? Pumpkin cake with thick creamcheese frosting!

While coconut macaroons *are* seriously underrated, my underdog dessert vote must go to chocolate pudding. If we move past the Snack Packs and Jell-o cups of our childhoods, we'll find that homemade chocolate pudding is perhaps one of the greatest comfort foods in existence.

Ooh, I totally agree with Sara and Alex that a good old-fashioned bowl of fruit is fabulous! Make a parfait with some sort of sweet yogurt curd or just throw a dollop of whipped topping on top! Yummy!

I think chocolate fondue would be awesome!

October 6 | Unregistered CommenterCarly

I think caramelized pears would be a great mix!

I guess you're referring to things like carrot cake but with parsnips instead?

I'm going with Jello salad. Cube the Jello and then throw it into a bowl with a bunch of fruit chunks and mix together with Cool Whip. Refreshing!

Pudding pie! Easy to make yet SO good, and even better if you use sugar free pudding

October 6 | Unregistered CommenterMelanie

Rice Pudding...I can't even say it without my mouth watering...

October 6 | Unregistered CommenterLisa

I really love muffins... they don't get any attention

vanilla ice cream! Everyone always says it is totally boring, but it is my favorite! It couples well with SO many things and yet stands along strong and brilliant! i love the stuff!

I once had an old-fashioned style carrot cake that was full of carrot shavings and more dense and fibre-y. It was amazing and all I can find these days are fluffy carrot cake desserts that are totally unsatisfying and bland. Does anyone have a recipe for the old-fashioned kind?

cute gloves...I never thought they made them with a cupcake-patterned fabric or vinyl for the ruffles...I'm a fan of fancy, decorated rubber gloves since having been a viewer of How Clean Is Your House? I wonder who sells 'em (I can't count on a contest win) so I can link to the retailer on http://www.cupcake-forum.com

October 7 | Unregistered CommenterLaura

I saw the gloves for sale at Nadia G's store at: www.nadiag.com

Hands down eclair cake has never been appreciated. When I moved to New York and tried explaining how great it was people looked at me with their noses turned up. How can you go wrong with vanilla pudding, dream whip, graham crackers and whipped chocolate frosting?

October 7 | Unregistered CommenterNutmeg Nanny

You know what I think is underrated? Chocolate ice cream...just a big bowl of it. No fudge or sauce on top, no marshmallows, choc chips, cookie pieces...nothing but the ice cream! And plenty of it!!! :)

(I didn't know if this was a US resident only contest or a worldwide one, but this Aussie just had to share her opinion on the 'underdog desert' topic! LOL)

October 7 | Unregistered CommenterLiv

I'm really REALLY stoked that everyone participated in this contest - cakespy fans are awesome!

The gloves can be found at Nadia G's store: http://www.nadiag.com/vmchk.html They retail for about $32... they're pretty cute too (I asked for a pair for Xmas...lol)

We hope to keep seeing you guys around! We totally love Cakespy :)

XO Angelique

Chocolate is my fav and you do it sooooo well

I love crumbles with really tart ingredients like cranberries, dried tart bing cherries and Granny Smith apples.

October 8 | Unregistered Commenterkathleen

Ice cream bombes. Festive large or small with infinite possibilities. Could it be manufactured ice cream cakes have replaced them? I still love these things.
