Sweet Giveaway: Win a Copy of Take The Cake by Sandra Wright

Sometimes, eating cake isn't enough. You want to live it.

So, for those non-eating times, reading a book in which cake plays a big part probably sounds like a fun activity. Well, here's a new novel bound to interest cake-lovers: Take the Cake by Sandra Wright. Here's a synopsis:

Sometimes
 you
 just
 have
 to
 take
 life
 one
 cupcake
 at
 a

time. Kate Shannon is happy
 with
 the way
 things are. She
 doesn’t

have
 a Mr
. Right
 or
 even a Mr
. Right
 Now, but
 what
 she
 does
 have
 is

a
 thriving
 bakery
 in
 Greenwich
 Village
 called
 Take
 The
 Cake,
 and

that’s just the way
 she likes
 it.

 Better still
 is the cupcake to match

the daily
 quote
 competition
 with
 her
 barista as they try to
 outsmart

each
 other
 every morning with
 their
 creativity.
 Producing cupcakes

with
 names
 such
 as
 Woodstock
 Afterburn
 and
 Vegan
 Rehab
 is

enough to keep
 her
 on
 her toes,
 who
 has time
 for
 dating?

Across
 town,
 Michael Forrester
 has
 gone
 from enjoying
 the
 thrill
 of success

to wallowing in
 the
 depths
 of
 despair.
 With
 a collection
 of
 critically

acclaimed
 novels in
 his wake,
 Michael
 now spends
 his days battling

writers’ block.

With
 nowhere
 to
 go
 and
 nothing
 to
 write,
 Michael’s in
 the

right headspace to
 find
 exactly
 what
 he
 didn’t
 know he was looking

for..

Are you drawn in? Well, happily, you can win a copy of this sweet novel. One lucky winner will win a copy, by leaving a comment below with the answer to the following: what is your favorite book or movie which prominently features food?

The giveaway will close on Monday, January 24 at noon PST; a winner will be announced shortly thereafter. In the meantime, check out the author's site here.

Ratatouille!! Cutest movie ever!

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory! Either that or Ratatoullie! They were both good, even though Johnny Depp gets a little creepy sometimes.

My favourite movie with food would be Waitress. I wanted to make pies for weeks after watching it!!

Like someone else said, I hope Canadians/ people outside the US can enter!

I think the best food movie ever made is Babettes Feast. If you have not seen it, check it out. The preparations for the amazing meal are a delight to watch as is the interaction between the women.

I also love Like Water for Chocolate.
January 19 | Unregistered CommenterCatherine
Like Water for Chocolate. It was good reading and it was a good movie. I believe the way they believed: you put into the cooking love, you feel love, you put in tears, you feel tears.

<I>Sunshine</I>, by Robin McKinley. She's a magic user and genius baker of fantastic confections: her boyfriend is a biker mage... and she fights vampires!

(I want to eat breakfast at Sunshine's cafe more than anything: She gets up at five to bake Cinnamon Rolls As Big As Your Head! - but they run out by ten.)
