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'd like two (I can do that, it's my birthday, right?): my mom's famous lemon pound cake, and a vanilla cake with fresh strawberries. YUM!

My bday is already past for this year, and i opted not to have cake (we went for sushi instead!)

mmm cake
I would love a German Chocolate or a "spring fling" for my B-day. Also, my son is turning one and we are going to make him a Lego themed cake sooo excited!! :)

This is gonna sound silly, but one of these birthdays,I really want a 'wedding-y" type of cake! With multiple tiers of different flavors. And the entire cake is in shades of purple. That is my dream cake,and hopefully will become true like,when I become a 'milestone' age (30,40 etc) <3

white cake with a layer of seedless raspberry jam and lemon swis meringue buttercream. YUM! Makes every year older a little easier to swallow. HA!

My dream birthday cake would be an awesomely delicious banana cake with a peanut butter buttercream frosting in the middle and a creamy dreamy ganache to top it off!

White cake, white frosting. Maybe some chocolate ice cream to go with it. And perhaps a banana cream pie too. (Why not? I can have whatever I want on my birthday, can't I?)

This is so awesome! I love it!

My favorite birthday cake is white cake with raspberry filling, whipped cream and fresh raspberries!

We are probably ordering a Sacher Torte from the Hotel Sacher in Vienna, since it is debatably) the original Sacher Torte.

And no, I don't live in Austria...or Europe. But they ship their cakes all over the world!

I prefer pie but Very Fat Fudge Cake is relish!

Yellow cake! With chocolate frosting...mmm...but this felt cake is the cutest thing I've ever seen, so that might be another "want" for the day!

Fantasy cake: I saw a "lime in the coconut" cake that won some contest on Food Network. Always wanted to try that.

Real cake: Man, so many to choose from. I've been informed that I'm not allowed to bake my own cake, so it might well be something of a surprise.

Well, if I had my druthers, it'd be Italian Cream Cake hands down! Or a Sacher Torte. Or wait, maybe a coconut lime cake! It doesn't really matter anyway, since I will be the one baking it, boo. The felt cake is freaking awesome. I am truly amazed by the detail! And I now like you on FB!

Chocolate chocolate all the wayyy!

I once made a Hummingbird cake for my dad's birthday... but I ate half of it. Maybe I'll try that again for my birthday, but with more restraint. :)

Totally having my mom's white cake with homemade chocolate frosting. Yum.
March 18 | Unregistered CommenterJanelle
I would love to have an old fashioned coconut cake--moist cake, fluffy frosting and shavings of fresh coconut. Brings back great memories and happy times.
