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!

Chocolate with chocolate pan frosting!

I will probably have the same cake my husband always has on his birthday (which is today! Happy Birthday, Sweet Muffin!). It is the most awesome moist chocolate cake ever, I saw it on Barefoot Contessa, made it once and am now hooked for life. I also make a dark chocolate butter cream to go on top. YUM! Now, someday I will probably add some kind of salted caramel creation to it and then I'll just die happy.

I am pretty sure it will be an ice cream cake, or a cake with raspberry filling! yum yum!

Lemon cake with vanilla buttercream icing! Of course, my birthday isn't until September, so that is subject to change. :)

I've made felt food for my nephew from Mrs. Lim's patterns on etsy, and I must say that they are easily to make and turn out great! Thanks for the fantastic giveaway!

My birthday is right around the corner and I am hopefully having a Pistachio cake with honey butter cream that I saw in the Baked cookbook (second one). it is called Aunt Sassy's cake and it looks yummy.

This a BIG number birthday for me... And I'm making my own cake to ensure I don't get a storebought catastrophe. Most likely an Angry Birds cake... Complete with birds, pigs and a slingshot... Who says you can't play with your food???

Jeanette's book looks fantastic!

I have always wanted to make the sweet and salty cake from the Baked cookbook. I know it is lame to make your own birthday cake, but I would really enjoy doing it!

Today is my birthday (yeah) and we had a Martha Stewart brown sugar poundcake with brown sugar cream cheese frosting. It was pretty yummy!

This book looks too cool! I know my 6 year old daughter and I would be busy making food if we got our hands on one of these books. I'll cross my fingers!

I already had my birthday. I made a 6 layer rainbow cake...and also a cherry cheesecake, since that is what my twin brother requested. I also liked you on Facebook!

Gah! This is awesome. My 30th bday is coming up, and it's in June, which is just in time for Carvel ice cream cake. So yeah, I'm gonna go with Fudgie the Whale.

Black forest cake reminds me of celebrating my birthday with my grandmom when I was a kid in my home town.

My ultimate birthday cake this year would be a layer of fluffy white cake, then a layer of homemade strawberry ice cream, another layer of white cake and then slayer it all in some whipped cream, top it off with some fresh sliced berries and 30 candles!
March 18 | Unregistered Commenteramber
Oh me....ji would have a moist white cake with strawberry butter-cream icing.

Or maybe a luscious coconut cake....with toasted coconut. yummm-o
March 18 | Unregistered CommenterIssy
Well my birthday isn't until the last week of the year, so I'll likely change my mind by then. But for today anyway, I'm thinking that a nice tall red velvet with thick cream cheese icing sounds perfect. Thanks for the awesome giveaway!
