Sweet Giveaway: Win a KitchenAid Mixer or a Cupcake Kit, Compliments of Top Chef Just Desserts 

I'm sure that there's something better than winning stuff, but at this moment, nothing is coming to mind.

That's because my friends (we're totally BFF, didn't you know? Of course, see note at bottom) at Bravo have offered up this totally mega-sweet giveaway because of their extreme happiness surrounding the premiere of Top Chef Just Desserts Season 2. Want to read more about it? OK: 

The chef'testants and the sugar are back for season 2! As the pastry chefs meet and greet, they are surprised by host Gail Simmons and head judge Johnny Iuzzini with their first Quickfire Challenge.  One of the first challenges includes a fairy-tale inspired dessert. Imagination and talent are a must to survive the not-so-sugar coated competition. Will the chef's be able to get past their first-challenge nerves and fight their way to sweet success, or will the pressure make some contestants crumble from the start? Find out this Wednesday 8/24 @ 10/9c on the PREMIERE of BRAVO's Top Chef Just Desserts 2

Two winners will be chosen. A grand prize winner will receive a gorgeous Kitchen-Aid Mixer; a runner-up will win this cute and sweet cupcake kit. 

How do you enter? Totally easy. Since this week not only marks the premiere of Season 2 of Just Desserts but my own 30th season of life (aka, it's my birthday on the 26th), tell me what kind of birthday cake you're wishing for this year. Leave it in the comments section below (comments are moderated so don't cry if you don't see it pop up right away!) or on the CakeSpy facebook page! But don't delay: this giveaway closes on August 26th at 5pm PST.

The fine print: This prize was provided by the BRAVO Network but BRAVO is not a sponsor, administrator, or involved in any other way with this giveaway. All opinions expressed in the post are my own and not those of BRAVO. Per prize donor: entrants from the USA only.

UPDATE: The winners! The KitchenAid went to Erika of Fargo, ND, and the cupcake kit went to Suzanne S. of Austin, TX! Congratulations, ladies.

I always like a storebought birthday cake with icing roses and lard based buttercream. Tacky, but it's the only time I get them.

My 40th birthday is coming up in two months... I am dreaming of a moist, yummy yellow cake with a creamy espresso whipped filling in the middle and a caramal icing. Maybe some chopped nuts to top it off. Not sure how that would be in real life, but it sounds great right now.

The Miette tomboy cake- chocolately goodness topped with raspberry heaven. Unfortunately, there is no Miette where I live lol, so I'm probably going to have to try making it myself! Might well be the best thing I ever make...or, you know, as disaster! :P

The best birthday cake would be a strawberry shortake or Italian Cream Cake (wish I knew how to make that)

My Mom, myself and my brother were all born on the same day...April 22nd.
We always had 3 different cakes every year!
My fav is German Chocolate with Coconut Pecan frosting...
but Mom and bro have both passed and now I don't celebrate much.
But I'd enjoy that cake again...seriously!
