Cake Poll: Let Me Eat Cake!

Giveaway: Let Me Eat Cake!
Do you love cake?

Do you really love cake?
Do you love cake so much that whenever you're in the same room, you find yourself unable to resist its siren call?
Then certainly Leslie F. Miller's new book, Let Me Eat Cake, is for you. Now, let's get it straight--though the book has a few recipes, that's not what it's about--it's more about the culture of cake, its lure and the lore behind it, baked up full of personal anecdotes and cake stories galore. And--as we were surprised and delighted to discover--there's even a mention of CakeSpy.com!

I found myself in Leslie's book!
And you, dear friend, could be the winner of a signed copy of the book. Oh, you want this!
To put your name in the running, simply answer this question in the comments. You can be as literal or as figurative as you like, just be sure to leave your thoughts on this important subject:
What is the best thing about cake? 

The poll will be closed on Monday at 12 p.m. PST, and the winner will be announced shortly thereafter. If you're interested in purchasing the book, click here. Oh, and in case you were interested, the cupcake shown is a Chai Cardamom cupcake from Seattle's Trophy Cupcakes!

The best thing about cake is the amazement from others that you can make something beautiful that tastes delicious too!

I think the most amazing thing about cake is the frosting. When I start thinking about frosting there's not much that can hold me back from running to the grocery store to get the ingredients needed. I just love gigantic amounts of vanilla frosting on vanilla cake with a huge cup of milk, it makes my inside's happy.

Best thing about cake: when you ask someone to imagine a cake, each person will think of something different, but probably, if you ask them to think about what cake signifies, "love" is in there somewhere.

The best thing about cake is its festivity. Whether it's an elegant tiered wedding cake, a pink-frosted birthday cake, or a homey apple cake baked by Mom for weeknight dessert, any occasion feels more special when there's cake!

Cake...delicious crumbs of sweet fluffiness. Yum and the chocolate butter cream on the top. It is to die for!

Best thing about cake is the look on the person's face who you baked the cake for! I love seeing the surprise and joy on peoples faces when they first see cakes I have made for them. That and the perfect balance of cake and icing, in a perfect bite. And chocolate....chocolate cake is awesome!
Must feel good being "published"!!
Take Care

What would a book about cake be without a Cakespy mention? =)

The best thing about cake is its versatility. There are a million wonderful, different ways to make (and eat) a cake. I'm still working on trying them all.

The best thing about cake is there are so many excuses, I mean reasons, to eat it. Birthdays, holidays, anniversaries, had a good day, had a bad day; you can come up with any reason to eat cake!

The best thing by far about cake is the look and sounds of excitement when I present cupcakes or cakes to my friends, family, and co-workers. Their enjoyment of my creations mean the world to me.

The best thing is the right combination of light cake to rich frosting. The book looks beautiful. Thanks for offering the giveway.

The best thing about cake is that there's a type for every mood I'm in! Celebratory, depressed, bitter, pleasant, or ambivalent, we've got a cake for that.

The best thing about a cake is the bite with the perfect ratio of cake to frosting to filling.
Sheer bliss.
