Best Giveaway Ever: Win a Copy of Big Little Felt Universe AND a Handmade Felt Cake by Jeannette Lim

Dudes. Dudettes. You know that I don't like to speak in absolutes (yes I do) but...this is, without a doubt, the biggest, best, awesomest giveaway ever.

Here's the deal. Indie crafter/Etsy artist, Jeanette Lim has just come out with a new book entitled Big Little Felt Universe: Sew It, Stuff It, Squeeze It, Fun! --which I learned about thanks to my friends at Lark Crafts. BLFU features over 70 fun stitched-felt projects—including food items, desserts, and interactive play kits.

And you can win a copy--awesome, right? But wait, there's more: The author, Jeanette, handmade the cake shown at the top of this post for the book, and she donated it for this special giveaway on CakeSpy!!! As you can see, it’s a vanilla cake with eight different kinds of fruit topping, and it comes with candles that stand up via magnets, a serving plate, spatula, and a cake box with a ribbon (not shown) -- all made out of felt!

I know, I know: you want to win this. But how to enter?

It's easy. All you have to do is leave a comment below telling me what kind of cake you're going to have for your birthday this year. I can be a cake you're sure you'll have, or just the dream cake--fantasy allowed.

But--since I'm not above coercing you to like me, I'll enter you in the running TWICE if you "Like" me (CakeSpy) on Facebook. Yeah, you heard me. Do it. 

Giveaway will close on Tuesday, March 29 at noon PST!

I will have the cake that I have always had - chocolate cake with chocolate mocha frosting! It's delicious! Too bad I have to wait until December to eat it...

But of course the bestest cake EVER - - Rum. Made by the greatest Italian Bakery in South Florida. I've had a Rum Birthday cake since I can remember. . Why break the tradition now? :)

Also, I "Liked" Cakespy on Facebook. ( Li Ca is who I am on there. )

The best part of my birthday is the cake! This was the cake last time http://yfrog.com/h0c3tej
This time around I'm thinking a cake made to look like a s'mores, with all the s'mores flavors. Yum!

I would like my next birthday cake to be an incredibly tall coconut creme layer cake topped with curls of coconut, dark chocolate and a finely ground layer of toasted macadamia nuts. Also, there should be a passionfruit liquor worked in there somewhere. And I'll take that with a side of Pierre Hermé macarons. Thank you.

I liked you on Facebook, so now I guess my girl-crush is official. I think for my birthday this year, I'd like to make Joy the Baker's orange-chocolate bundt cake. I've done it once, and I need to experience it again!

My mom says I was the only kid she ever knew who requested lemon birthday cakes every year, and I'm still a total sucker for them. Definitely a lemon cake this year :)

For my birthday, I will have redvelvet cake with cream cheese frosting and lots of sprinkles. And I will make it myself and it will be the bestest cake. :)

I'd say vanilla cake with lavender frosting. I'm crazy for lavender these days.

And it would be shaped like Nemo's bed from Little Nemo: Adventures in Slumberland.

The party would be similarly themed.

Does cheesecake count? It's definitely my favorite "cake" and I usually make blueberry cheesecake for my birthday (which is coming up soon in April!)

I "liked" you, and voted for your socks last week! I'm sorry you didn't get first, but Sock it to Me said they'll probably make them anyway? For my birthday I'm having what I always have, some version of strawberry shortcake (I'm a redhead, and I've always had this dessert made for me on my birthday by some "clever" family member). My favorite version right now is Martha Stewart's.

It's always pumpkin cheesecake for me! I have a November birthday so there is always plenty of pumpkin around :)

Ooh, I would love a strawberry cake covered in sweet strawberries! And the felt cake is just too cute. :)

Well, because my birthday (this Sunday! March 20) is so close to Pi Day, I'm choosing cherry pie instead of chocolate cake (which would be my choice if I couldn't choose cherry pie).

Pistachio petit-four cake from smittenkitchen. Delish.

I'm planning on hinting at my husband to get me the White Chocolate Strawberry cake from Simply Desserts in Fremont. SO yummy. It will be my 30th, so I deserve it :)
