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 spent my last birthday on an airplane with 13 of my closest friends, en route to Cuba, so my birthday cake came in the form of... beer. This year I hope to have my gramma's plain vanilla cake with vanilla Japanese icing - she's been making it since I was a young whipper-snapper... it's been awhile!

I am hoping for a lemon-Ginger Ale cake for my birthday. Decorations would be Halloween inspired of course since my bday is a few days before halloween :-)

Its my 31st birthday today and I made The Triple Threat Cookie, Cake, Pie with pink frosting and sprinkles. I am very much looking forward to this special treat. Thank you for the inspiration. Happy Birthday to you too!

If I could wish for a certain birthday cake this year, it would be a chocolate coconut cake that my Dad proudly made for me every single year for 40 years. It was not very fancy but it was made entirely from scratch with lots of love. Unfortunately, my Dad recently passed away. This October, I will attempt to make my own chocolate coconut cake....lumps and all!

I'm hoping for a vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream cupcake! I'm pretty traditional, but sure do love my vanilla cakes!

Well I own Sugar Rush Sweets and make amazing cakes for everybody but myself. I haven't had a birthday cake in at least 15 years. I would love any cake, just to have a person bake ME a cake would be not just appriciated but memorable, not to mention my bday is 2 days after Christmas, it is over looked most every year. Anyhow, good luck in your choice its gonna be a hard one forsure!
