Sweet Giveaway: Win an Original Framed CakeSpy Watercolor!

Today, for no particular reason other than the fact that it might sweeten your day, CakeSpy is offering a giveaway.

Totally sweet: you could win a framed and matted original watercolor by CakeSpy! It pictures a sweet scene of treats flying a kite on what looks like a carefree and sugar-filled day (of course, if you can't wait to see if you won, feel free to shop online here).

Want a piece of that sweetness? To enter to win, simply leave a comment on this post to satisfy the spy's curiosity:

What is the last dessert, sweet, or baked good that really knocked your socks off?

A buttery croissant? A decadent chocolate torte? Or perhaps a homespun apple pie? I want to hear all about it. Of course recipes are welcome too! 

This giveaway is open to entrants everywhere (US and abroad). The giveaway will close for entries on Thursday, November 18, at 12pm PST, and a winner will be announced shortly thereafter.

I enjoyed a super-rich blondie with Oreo pieces baked in and melted chocolate drizzled on top. The home-baked treats in my college cafeteria continue to satisfy my sweet tooth:)

Last weekend I made SmittenKitchen's chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting & chocolate ganache for a family gathering. It was amazing...songs should be written about this cake!

At a potluck recently, I had some blondies with chocolate chips and peanut butter chips. They were just the right combo of cooked yet gooey.

HI!...i just wanted to say that i LOVE your site....and i'm actually repainting my whole kitchen in grey and pink so that i have an excuse to get as many of your pictures as i can...ahhaha...true story!!! my boyfriend thinks i'm insane...

i recently started a little home cake/cookie/cupcake business and your hilariousness is inspirational.

all of that aside, the dessert that last (and always) blows my socks off, is so simple...it's my dad's peanut butter ice cream pie....this last time, for my birthday, he used the new whipped peanut butter you can buy....let me just say, of all the complex, and high end desserts that i put down my trap, this is my favourite...made for me with peanut butter and love...my 2 favourite things!

anyway, that's my 2 cents...sorry for the novel!

Apple almond tart with a shortbread crust, a recipe from a local restaurant that ran in a local publication a few years back. Really easy, yet so yummy!

I had the most delicious chocolate cookie from the bakery I live above... and for breakfast! I'm on a cookie diet, and somehow I've lost two pounds. I don't really understand my life.

The last dessert that I reallllyyy enjoyed was an apple crisp i made. The apples were tart and delicious and the topping was nice and sweet and crisp. It was just perfect.

Apple Cider Cupcakes from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World. They are so delicious! I made 2 1/2 dozen for a family party a last month and everyone devoured them, myself included. Yum!

PW's Chocolate Truffles with Sea Salt! The definitely "knocked my socks off"!
November 11 | Unregistered CommenterJess
Last month, for my 60th birthday, my sweet, sweet daughter hosted a "dessert party" for me and we made all the desserts! My favorite was Pumpkin Spice Cake with Caramel Frosting. Wow. I. Am. A. Caramel. Freak. And this cake knocked my socks off! Two layers o f wonderful spicy moist cake, filled with homemade caramel frosting & toasted walnuts then the whole thing was frosted in more and more and more caramel frosting. Sigh.

Coconut mousse with pineapple coulis and pineapple filling. A-mazing. It was the dessert following a $130 dinner. That I didn't have to pay for.

Yummy Pumpkin Pie!
November 11 | Unregistered CommenterKelly
Oh, it's so delightful to think about the last thrilling dessert I had! What a lovely thought. It's a toss-up between two: An incredibly soft and sweet-salty green-tea mille crepe with hand-whipped cream and fresh berries, and/or the most perfect little peanut butter–chocolate chip cookie with fleur de sel. Heavens, heavens, heavens.
That's one very tough question, especially after a long challenge to east every baked good in the western hemisphere - sorry, I mean a recent holiday! But I think (and the answer could change by the minute) that Fat Witch Brownies are the thing to float my boat - that perfect gooey-centred indulgence of a caramel witch most of all. All the more so, for being able to (almost) replicate them at home - last night's caramel witches are going down well with all concerned. But definitely an honorary mention to the legendary crack pie at Momofuku Milk Bar, too...

Vegan pumpkin bread that I made a couple weeks ago at a dinner party (which also had super cheesy mac & cheese with caramelized onions). Recipe is here: http://ryansbakingblog.com/2010/10/the-best-pumpkin-bread-and-its-vegan/

The original recipe came from joy the baker but I left out the nuts.

It was so moist and delicious, I couldn't go to sleep that night because I was wishing I had more of it. I'm saving it for thanksgiving before I make it again, already have all the supplies ready and I probably think about it a few times a day.
