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!

Great-grandmother's recipe for orange cake has been my birthday requirement for an alarmingly large number of years.

Any cake will do. I'm not picky. Actually, I'm kind of a cake slut. There is no cake I will ever turn away. So I can't tell you what cake I'll have for my birthday. I still have 8 months to decide. It will probably have chocolate in it, though. I heart chocolate.

Hey! I liked you at Facebook! :))
My dream birthday cake would be a huge cupcake, about my height tall, like the one I made to myself to wear this Carnival. (Here in Portugal we use costumes in Carnival, like in Brasil).
I think you would like to see my cupcake costume. :))

I think that I need a lemon cake with lemon buttercream frosting this year. Tart, but not too tart. Sweet, but not too sweet. Normally I am a chocoholic, but my birthday is in may and a lemon cake will taste like spring!

Angel food confetti cake is my signature birthday cake, with lemon glaze for added sticky deliciousness.

I really want to try one of the rainbow layer cakes that have blue and white cloud icing on the outside, but when you cut into them, they are a rainbow. They are so surprising and fun!

I'd agree that this is one of the awesomest giveaways ever! I love the little candles. Hmm..not sure what kind of cake I want on my birthday. The hubby isn't a baker, so usually buys a cake. And with two little kids, more often than not, the cake is something they want more than what I want. Notwithstanding picky children, I'll go with black forest cake! Yummy, my fave. I tried making it last summer and it was a total Fail. I'll have to try again.
Just liked on Facebook. Noticed in the previous comments someone wanting lemon cake with lemon frosting. I might have to change my order. That sounds awesome.
I had a three-layer (slice of) Hawaiian Paradise cake from King's Hawaiian down in Los Angeles (Torrance, really). I hadn't had one in yearrrrrrs. I wish they had a bakery closer to me!

Every year, as long as I can remember, I've had Rainbow Chip cake with Rainbow Chip icing on my birthday, and I don't plan to switch it up now!

Imagine a buttery yellow cake, somewhere between a sponge and pound, with blueberries and lightly sugared whipped cream in two layers. The exterior of the cake will be coated with a generous layer of buttercream made with crushed vanilla bean. Fresh blueberries will decorate the top.
