Total Sweetness: CakeSpy and a Lucky Reader Win the Chronicle Books Happy Haul-idays Giveaway!

Like, OMG. No, not like OMG. Like, 


Remember that Happy Haul-Idays Giveaway I posted a while back, in hopes that myself and a lucky reader would win $500 worth of totally sweet Chronicle Books?

Well, we won. Me, and a lucky reader, Cari, that is. We each won a heaping parcel full of all of the books on this list, totaling $500 worth of totally sweet books. Here's the list I made up:

Whoopie Pies by Sarah Billingsley and Amy Treadwell

Cake Pops! By Bakerella!

I Love Macarons by Hisako Ogita

Flour by Joanne Chang

Southern Pies by Nancie McDermott

Luscious Coconut Desserts by Lori Long

Chocolate Cakes by Elinor Klivans

All Cakes Considered by Melissa Gray

Gingerbread by Jennifer McGlinn

Field Guide to Candy by Anita Chu

Field Guide to Cookies by Anita Chu

Baking for All Occasions by Flo Braker

Pops! By Krystina Castella

Luscious Creamy Desserts by Lori Longbotham

Killer Pies by Stephanie Anderson

Sticky, Chewy, Messy, Gooey by Jill O'Connor

Southern Cakes by Nancie McDermott

Sky High by Alisa Huntsman and Peter Wynne

Tartine by Elisabeth Prueitt and Chad Robertson

See's Famous Old Time Candies by Margaret Moos Pick

Cupcakes! By Elinor Klivans

Big Fat Cookies by Elinor Klivans

Luscious Chocolate Desserts by Lori Longbotham

Happier still? Looks like I'm in good company with reader Cari, whose name was chosen at random from a list of many entrants--when asked which book she'd go to first, Cari's response was: 

Do I have to pick one? For real? Can I just copy and paste the whole list? I want to make something different from each book every day for a year. Watch my mad skills and waistline grow!

Spoken like a true believer in the powers of sweetness. 

Of course, if you didn't win (sorry), you can still take advantage of some sweet deals from Chronicle

  • 35% off + free shipping through December 16, 2011
  • Use this promo code at checkout: HAULIDAYS

And you know, it wouldn't be such a bad idea to follow them on Twitter and Facebook, either. Sweet holiday wishes to everyone!

Congratulations!!! That is awesome. I would have loved to have been your commenter that won but guess since I am starting a diet....umm, no a "lifestyle change" I would probably gain weight just looking at most of the photos! Enjoy!
