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!

Carrot cake without the cream cheese frosting. I love carrot cake but I rarely eat it because I'm not a fan of the cream cheese frosting it typically comes with. Vanilla frosting for me.

I would love to have a chocolate chocolate cake, but my birthday gets overlooked sometimes since it's only 5 days after my daughter's, so we'll see what I get! :) Thank you so much!!!

Wow! Awesome giveaway!
I'm running a marathon on my birthday and totally plan on finishing that baby with a slice of carrot cake. Delicious.

For my birthday, I would love some sort of Turtle cake. Chocolate, caramel, and pecans. With a side of key lime ice cream.

This book looks cute. I am having visions of chocolate cake with dulce de leche and chocolate ganache for my birthday. mmmmmm. The other question of course is how crazy I am going to get with the decorations. :)

I usually have a chocolate cake with white icing, but my son just made a red velvet cake for his girlfriend that turned out very well and I may request that. Although I did buy cakes from Sugar Rush Bakery for a work event and I've been lusting after a Miss Turtle cake - chocolate and caramel, mmmmmmmmm

Ice cream cake! But the kind that has actual cake in it, not just ice cream shaped like a cake (I'm looking at you, Carvel).

White cake with white buttercream frosting. Preferably from Heitzmann's Bakery in Louisville, KY.

No one listens when I say carrot cake is my favorite I LIKE CARROT CAKE. I want carrot cake for my birthday. Even felt carrot cake would be GREAT!

Okay, don't laugh, but I want a Duncan Hines Cherry Chip Cake with matching Cherry Chip frosting.

That's the cake my grandma made me for my birthday every year, until she died, when I was 20...28 years ago. I have some incredible cooks in my life, and for that matter, I'm not too shabby in the kitchen myself, so I could probably have just about any kind of cake I wanted, but birthdays are never quite the same without the Cherry Chip Cake -- glow-in-the-dark faux cherry bits and all.
Well, my 6 year old's bday is 2 days before mine, and we usually have a joint celebration, and I concede to him. and his is plain jane vanilla cupcakes (he doesn't really like sweets-DID NOT get that from me!)
But if I had my way, I'd have a Chocolate Mouse Royale ice cream cake from Baskin Robbins. YUM!!!!

chocolate coconut cake or brownies or cupcakes...whichever way its delicious!!!
