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.

My dream birthday cake: the Lemon Blueberry with vanilla buttercream from Alice's Tea Cup. The tartness of the lemon, the sweetness of the buttercream, the blueness of the berries! Heaven.

My favorite birthday cake in the world is what my Mom made me every year without fail. It's the Betty Crocker Rainbow Chip cake with the icing to match! Though I have a sweet tooth that has gotten more sophisticated over the years, it just doesn't feel like my birthday without it! My husband has now taken over the responsibility of making it! :)

Asking me what kind of cake I want is a very dangerous question.... oh to pick just one..... but if I have to pick one, I want red velvet with the mild vanilla icing (not cream cheese) that my Mom used to make- yum!

My birthday is in February, so growing up I was never allowed to have ice cream cake because "you don't eat ice cream cake in the winter." Now, I have a mint chocolate chip ice cream cake every year because I can!!!

Oh goodness, I'm going to have to go with any type of cake involving dark chocolate, coconut, and the most delicious and creamy buttercream frosting! Peanut butter something-or-other would be wonderful as well.
