Luscious Coconut Desserts sounds good to me. I love coconut :) I hope you win!

Honestly, Pops! By Krystina Castella. Or Cake Pops by Bakerella.

Apparently I'm in a "pop" kind of mood. :)

These are all amazing but I would love a copy of Cake Pops by Bakerella for my granddaughters.

I've had my eye on Southern Cakes, and would love to win your list! I can tell you that Sky High is my current obsession, but I don't own any of the other books in your list. So Chronicle should pick you, and you should pick me! :)

Sky high!

I would love all of those books, but Sticky, Chewy, Messy, Gooey sounds like such an awesome book. :D It is definitely on my mental "I want this" list! :D
November 19 | Unregistered CommenterAshley Nunn
I want everything on your list. It's perfect! But if I have to choose just one it would be... Killer Pies

Flour! I read an article about Joanne and her history and it's so much like me! I'd love to have that book!
November 20 | Unregistered CommenterFrankie
Cupcakes! (By Elinor Klivans) Of course cupcakes! Always cupcakes! By far my most favorite treat, I love to bake them and share them :)
November 20 | Unregistered CommenterJasmina
By far I am the most excited about Bakerella's Book "Cake Pops". I love her blog and follow all of her posts and her photography is great and her food looks DELICIOUS! Definitely can't wait!
November 20 | Unregistered CommenterMaria
Ever since I moved to the East Coast, I've develope a love and fascination for Whoopie Pies. That's what I'd want!

Well, they all look good... Field Guide to Cookies would also be awesome =D
November 20 | Unregistered CommenterOwlchick
I have always been drawn to the Cupcakes book but the Big Fat Cookies Book sounds fun!
November 20 | Unregistered CommenterMelindaB
That's half of my holiday wishlist right there:)
November 20 | Unregistered CommenterJoanna
Big Fat Cookies!! Nothing makes me happier than a big fat cookie. Too often, cookie recipes instruct you to drop the dough on the cookie sheet by tablespoon. Tablespoon? Puh-leeze.

Cake Pops! by Bakerella. Her blog is definitely one of my favorites to visit and I love the creative stuff she comes up with!
November 20 | Unregistered CommenterJanine
Not to pick right from the top of the list, but I used to work at a bakery and whoopie pies were one of the things I couldn't resist (like all the frosting flowers that fell off the cakes) but I've never attempted to make them and I'd love to learn how.
November 20 | Unregistered CommenterKellyGirl
What a brilliant marketing idea! I plan to post my own list soon. LOVE your sweet list, Jessie -- many of your titles are the same as mine :). I'm especially sweet on Southern Pies with the holidays coming up!
November 20 | Unregistered Commenterjama
What!?! What an amazing, generous giveaway! Goodness, all of those books sound amazing. If I HAD to choose just one, suppose I would have to go with Cake Pops from Bakerella! I am such a child at heart and food on sticks (lollipops, corn dogs, pies) are jsut too much fun to pass up. Best of luck with the giveaway, it's so exciting! =)

I'm most excited about southern pies and southern cakes!

Sticky, Chewy, Messy, Gooey by Jill O'Connor
How could anyone NOT want a dessert book with a title like that?!
November 20 | Unregistered CommenterErin
Sticky, Chewy, Messy, Gooey by Jill O'Connor for sure! I've been eyeing this one up for ages!
