(GIVEAWAY — NOW CLOSED) CAKEfyi Celebrates One Year!



This giveaway is now closed.

I don’t know if you’ve been with me from the start or not, but that doesn’t matter.

Whenever and wherever you have joined me along this journey, it’s time to CELEBRATE!

CAKEfyi officially turns one year old this week, and I want to thank you.

CAKEfyi, or Cake For Your Icing, came about two months after I started blogging. I had a silly name going, I wasn’t posting regularly, and my recipes weren’t that thrilling. Since then, I have certainly grown. I changed the name to CAKEfyi on October 3rd last year, and from then on, I aimed to do nothing but impress!

In November, a month after CAKEfyi was born, Jessie Oleson of CakeSpy hosted a contest on her ever-popular blog in celebration of her first book. I entered, became a finalist, crossed my fingers, asked for your help, and won the national So You Wanna be a CakeSpy Contest! With that, I spent the day in Seattle with Jessie hopping from bakery to bakery gathering sweets along the way. We also hung out with Joy the Baker and simply had a great time.

Since then, I have joined the Best Friends For Frosting team and am now the Editor of all articles on the site. Melissa and I have stuck together through so much (fun), and we have successfully created a one-stop shop for all things exclusively dessert!

I also had the opportunity to develop a recipe for Sprinkles & Grins, a website made by Betty Crocker and Cake Mate, so things have certainly been happening!

And now, I want to do nothing but celebrate. I want to eat a lot of cake, and I want you to do that too. My recipes are sometimes for me, but they are mostly for you. CAKEfyi’s purpose is to show you that you can make something wonderful in your kitchen at home. It may not be fancy, but it will look good and always taste great.

To me it seems only appropriate to giveaway a signed copy of Jessie Oleson’s first book: CakeSpy Presents Sweet Treats for a Sugar-Filled Life. Jessie and her website have both been such an inspiration to me, especially when I started blogging, and really, if you don’t have this book by now, you’ve been majorly missing out. What other way would you want to celebrate?

How to Enter:

Contest is open to U.S. and Canada residents only.

    I don’t know if I can pick just one favorite! But I really do like YellowButter cake with Brownsugar Butter frosting. The only cooked frosting that I find is really worth the time (so far at least). And it is definately my husbands fav!
