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.

Yum! My birthday is 9/2/???? I'm dreaming of anything chocolate. I belong to the "if it's not chocolate, it's not dessert" club.

It's always the classic chocolate cake with chocolate icing for me, but this year I think I'm hoping for... chocolate cake with salted caramel icing. Mm.

I think this will need to be a lemon-swirled cheesecake year. And, I am a girl of the 26th, too, just in May. Happy Birthday!

A tiramisu for me.
I make my own birthday cake and will probably do cupcakes this year. :)
Happy Birthday to you.

My birthday already passed for this year... :( But for next year I'd like ... well... to be honest, I love all things sweet, especially cake. And I like the plain jane stuff as well as unique flavor combos. So I'd be happy with anything!

Has to be chocolate, chocolate, chocolate:)
August 25 | Unregistered Commentergail
I am hoping for a big and sweet bumpy cake!!!

For my birthday I would love a chocolate cake with oreos and reeses peanut butter cups baked inside, a cookies and cream filling and nutella buttercream frosting :) A scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side couldn't hurt either
August 25 | Unregistered CommenterMarielle
I'm not really concerned with what flavor it is so much as how it's made. I'd really like to see one of my family members trying their hand at baking from scratch and not from a box. So homemade, not semi-homemade.

I would LOVE a lemon cake with a raspberry curd filling and raspberry lemon buttercream!!!
