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.

The Elvis cupcake from a shop called Jubilee, in Tacoma!! It was banana cake with dark chocolate ganache filling, peanut butter buttercream frosting and dark chocolate drizzle.
I can taste it now... mmmmm.

The last dessert that knocked my socks off was a yummy bowl of fried ice cream covered in whip cream and chocolate sauce

KUNAFAH !!!!!!! oh yum... its basically stringy cheese or cream or even soft cheese. topped with a vermicilli saffron layer. Baked and then topped with a sizzling hot sugar syrup that seeps into the cheese ad vermicilli sweetening it all up... i thnk it just might fill my calorie count for the century =)

Apple pie muffins. Not only does the kitchen smell delicious after baking them, but it is impossible to just have one.

Homemade cheesecake (a Rose Levy Berenbaum recipe) with fresh strawberry coulis (Smitten Kitchen recipe)... it's just shockingly good.

We have a little mom-based donut shop in our town that offers a special on a steak dinner on Thursday nights. Always full afterwards, no room for dessert, the owner had made a chocolate sensation called "Death By Chocolate". As a chocoholic, I couldn't resist & took a piece home. Later, I was in chocolate heaven! This was the best dessert I had ever tasted & I will be back again on Thursday night, hoping that this cake is once again the dessert du jour!

A flourless chocolate torte with freshly whipped cream and a chocolate/espresso sauce. It was absolutely amazing.

I had still warm & gooey brownies with chocolate sauce and pecans.

Step 1. Make TOO MANY waffles on a lazy Sunday morning with a small number of people you love (a large number of people will result in no more waffles!)

Step 2. Let leftover waffles cool. Store in freezer bags.

Step 3. Have one of those super crazy weeks where you haven't had any time to make a home-cooked meal, but now you're more lifeless than the last stalk of celery in your barren fridge.


Step 5. Toast waffle in toaster oven. Dab with butter (you totally deserve it), sugar, cinnamon, or whatever else gets your endorphins going.

Step 6. Lean back into a squashy sofa and savor your warm, buttery, sugary reward. Pat yourself on the back for thinking ahead, and remember what a great time you had making waffles on a lazy Sunday morning.

A delicious, perfectly baked chocolate chip cookie purchased for charity. Great cookie, better cause.

I would have to say an almond croissant from Montreal Quebec in Canada. Buttery and melty! I didn't even have to chew, mouth juices sufficed to help it slide down my throat and into my belly
