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!

German chocolate cake. Never happen, though. My family wouldn't eat it, and I'd have to eat the whole thing all by myself. On second thought....

Well, I know it will be homemade (by me). Debating between a cheesecake, German Chocolate and something new and exciting.

I want a rainbow cake. My mom started making this for me every year and now I live in a different country. It's yummy yellow cake made in four layers with colored whipped cream as the icing.

Probably carrot cake; that usually ends up being my favorite around birthday time. Except for the year I made mini pineapple upside down cakes. Mmmm... (rushing off to make some right now)

It's actually my birthday on Wednesday, believe it or not! I had a white chocolate mud cake today from my Aunt. I'm hoping for an orange-chocolate cake this year. They are beyond delicious!

When I was a kid my mom used to always bring me Andes mints home from work. They were my fav. So... I'm thinking about a mint chocolate cake with Andes mints! Yumm!

Since I'm a cake baker/decorator I like to treat myself to something I don't have to look at all year 'round. So I always go for a giant piece of tiramisu on my birthday!
