Cake Poll: Love and Chocolate!

Win it: Cake poll!
How time flies! It's been a while since our last Cake Poll, so we're making up for it by offering a very sweet treat: an original (not a print!) Cakespy watercolor! The watercolor (shown top) will come in a 4x5 inch frame and will go to just one lucky winner. All you have to do to enter is leave a comment with your responses to the below poll, centered around the star of all February sweetness: chocolate! Here goes:

  1. Chocolates for Valentine's Day: cute or cliché?
  2. The chocolate box: which flavor would you rather leave for others?
  3. Milk chocolate: amateur hour or respectable citizen?
  4. Chocolate in savory foods (mole sauce, etc): awesome, or awful?
  5. Hot chocolate: with or without marshmallows?
  6. Chocolate-flavored or scented body products: ooh, or eww?
  7. What's your favorite chocolate dessert?
The poll is open for anyone (US and international!) to enter; the deadline is 12 p.m. PST on Saturday, February 14. The winner will be announced shortly after!

February 11 | Unregistered CommenterCorinne

1. Cliché, but who cares? For a chocoholic like me cliché doesn't matter one little bit!

2. What? LEAVE chocolate for others when I could eat it myself? I guess if I was forced to give up a flavor I'd choose coffee.

3. Respectable citizen, though dark chocolate will always get priority treatment in my book.

4. Yum! Awesome!

5. Without marshmallows please--just pure unadulterated rich hot chocolate (though chocolate shavings are perfectly acceptable).

6. Ooooh, yes please!

7. My chocolate truffle tart--sigh.

February 11 | Unregistered CommenterFuji Mama

1. Cliche- but I would be grateful for the gift!
2. Anything with cherries or coconut. So not a fan of those!
3. Respectable as long as it isn't EVERY year.
4. Awful. Yuck.
5. With! Has to be the mini ones though.
6. EWWWWW. If I am going to smell like food I prefer it to be vanilla birthday cake or cinnamon buns! (Philosophy is amazing at creating body wash/shampoos that smell super yummy!)
7. I consider red velvet cupcakes part of the chocolate family and they are my favorite!

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterEmily

1. Chocolates for Valentine's Day: cute or cliché? The husband and I don't really celebrate Valentine's Day, but I would never turn down chocolates. I'm not some sort of crazy person.
2. The chocolate box: which flavor would you rather leave for others? Any sort of fruity filled chocolates (minus chocolate covered cherries). I'm not a fan of gooey fruit fillings.
3. Milk chocolate: amateur hour or respectable citizen? Good milk chocolate has its place. In my belly.

1) Chocolates for Valentine's Day: cute or cliché? So cute!!! Unfortunately so far I have never received chocolates for Valentine's Day…. 

2) The chocolate box: which flavor would you rather leave for others? Anything filled with marzipan or mint.

3) Milk chocolate: amateur hour or respectable citizen? Definetely respectable citizen!! Dark chocolates causes migraines for me…

4) Chocolate in savory foods (mole sauce, etc): awesome, or awful? I've never had mole, but I did have venison with a chocolate sauce and that was delicious!!

5) Hot chocolate: with or without marshmallows? Here in Holland marshmallows on top of chocolate is not very common. We drink it plain or with whipped cream, I prefer it with whipped cream. About a decade ago I had hot chocolate with marshmallows and loved it!

6) Chocolate-flavored or scented body products: ooh, or eww? Euhm??? Ooh!!

7) What's your favorite chocolate dessert? Oow… Only one??? I loved my own white chocolate and strawberry tiramisu!

February 12 | Unregistered CommenterMarthe

1. Chocolates for Valentine's Day: cute or cliché? Most definately cliché. But who could possibly refuse them? Their delicious appearance and delightful aroma...

2. The chocolate box: which flavor would you rather leave for others? I probably wouldn't leave any! Haha. I'm not a big fan of dark chocolate. So I'd probably just keep those ones away from my stomach.

3. Milk chocolate: amateur hour or respectable citizen? Milk chocolate has a place in my heart. It's good to spice things up, but the classic milk is most definately a respected citizen.

4. Chocolate in savory foods (mole sauce, etc): awesome, or awful? I'm going to go with awful. Chocolate should stick to sweet foods. It shouldn't step out of its boundaries.

5. Hot chocolate: with or without marshmallows? Marshmallows! Oh, yes please!

6. Chocolate-flavored or scented body products: ooh, or eww? yummo. I've used chocolate scented shampoo before. Let's just say it was a struggle to actually use the shampoo. It smelt so good.

7. What's your favorite chocolate dessert? Pretty much anything, as long as it includes the main ingredient... chocolate!
