***This giveaway is now closed. See who won below!***
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Our lucky winner this week is… N Shirley (whose favorite dessert “to both make and eat is Virginia Apple Pudding – even makes the whole house smell good!”) Sounds delicious. Congrats!
We’ve had a few questions about why all contests aren’t open to international readers, so here’s that info for you. We actually ask every single vendor who approaches us to do a giveaway if they’ll ship internationally and we remind them that the more folks are included, the more exciting it is for everyone. We LOVE you all and always want to open our giveaways to as many people as possible! It unfortunately comes down to each company’s policy (some folks are set up to deal with customs/shipping internationally while some companies are not legally able to vend things beyond the US – even if it’s just a book or a gift card). Sadly, we can’t change companies policies, and if we held out for international prizes and rejected everything else, we could no longer host weekly giveaways – which we’ve done for years. Hope that makes sense! We’ll continue to do our best to include as many of you guys as we can (we’re so glad this cookbook is open to Canadians too!).
With Thanksgiving just days away, think of this week’s giveaway as a warm up to all of the delicious food you’ll be stuffing your face with come Thursday. The mother-daughter team behind Philly’s Brown Betty Dessert Boutique is celebrating their new cookbook, The Brown Betty Cookbook, by giving away a copy along with $100 towards Terrain, whose wares appears on the cookbook’s pages. So if you’re like us and drool equally over amazing desserts and stylish kitchenware, you’re in luck. Seriously. I think I got a sugar high just by looking at some of the pictures.
- PRIZE: The Brown Betty Cookbook and $100 towards Terrain
- TO ENTER: Comment on this post with the words “CAKE ME!” and tell us…
- BONUS QUESTION: … what’s your all time favorite baked dessert? Are you a sucker for a chocolate layer cake? Or could you eat warm chocolate chip cookies ’til your stomach bursts? Maybe you’re dying to stuff a cupcake in your face right about now?
- GIVEAWAY CLOSES: Wednesday, November 21st at 8pm EST or at 10,000 entries (whichever comes first)
- NUMBER OF WINNERS: One
- PRIZE SHIPS: This cookbook giveaway is open to The United States & Canada (anyone in the US or Canada is eligible to win the cookbook, although the gift card is only valid in the states).

CAKE ME: chocolate lava cake, to be precise.
CAKE ME!!! My favorite baked dessert would have to be brownies…from scratch. Yum!
I love chocolate cake with white icing–the icing that’s not too sweet and stays soft. YUM!
Cake Me!!! I looovvveee warm apple cobbler with ice cream. MMMMMMMMMMMMmmmmmm! Have a Happy Thanksgiving!!
CAKE ME! Ohhhhh how my tummy loves a fresh out of the oven chocolate croissant.
Chocolate Chip Cookies for sure.
My all-time favorite dessert is a pumpkin bread pudding my roommate made last Fall! But I am a sucker for homemade desserts of all kinds…
Warm chocolate chip cookies are my standard favorite…I love many a baked dessert, but this one is just so good it’s hard to mess up
Cake me! All time favorite is a toss-up between crumble crust apple pie and flour-less chocolate cake.
Okay – first off, do not ‘cake me’, because over the weekend I tallied up all the cookbooks I own, and I have forbidden myself from getting any more before I start using more than three of the ones I already have!
I’m in Canada, and I love that you guys try to get international giveaways whenever you can. But I realize (and I hope your other readers do too) that not everyone can ship everywhere. Even freaking Amazon.com isn’t able to send me some stuff. Amazon! With their gargantuan warehouses and all that. And I don’t read your site for giveaways. I read it because you’re fun and funny and don’t take yourselves too seriously. I tell my friends about your site (sometimes I am confused and amazed that there are people who don’t know about you guys) because you have great ideas and lovely style. I also like that you write about a variety of topics, from birth stories (I’m due in six weeks and you can bet your butts that I’ve viewed Clara’s birth story more than once!) to DIY stuff, to birthday parties.
Keep it up! :)
Aw thanks so much for understanding Jill!
CAKE ME! My fav dessert is chocolate chip butterscotch cookies. I’ve had the recipe memorized since I was about ten. :)
CAKE ME! I’m in love with cupcakes, and pumpkin treats as of late!
Hope Ward says
CAKE ME! The cake in the picture looks like a delicious chocolate cake that Bill Knapp’s restaurant makes – that with some vanilla ice cream OH MY! But my all time favorite is a good carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. Not too sweet and, it being made with carrots, is healthy…right?
I could eat warm apple cobbler alllll day!!
All time favorite is cookie cake. Chocolate chip cookie cake. mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
I love those peanut butter cookies with a big chocolate kiss in the middle. Yum.
I am 100% a baked-goods fan. Right now, I’m feeling a creme brulee with fresh raspberries.
Blackberry crumble, yum! Or maybe an apple tart…. I guess I’m a sucker for warm fruit :)
CAKE ME! My best friend owns a bakery and she makes the most amazing Peanut Butter Chocolate cupcakes. They are THE BEST!
CAKE ME! I absolutely swear by the oatmeal cookie recipe found on the inside cover of the Quaker Oats containers. I swap raisins (eww) for milk chocolate chips (yum!). I also like to underbake things just a few minutes so they remain soft and chewy rather than firm and crispy.
CAKE ME! I am a sucker for a good Death By Chocolate…yum!

CAKE ME!!! My all time favorite baked dessert is Black Forest Cake. I grew up in Germany and fell in love with this cake when I was very young. My mom always had one made for me for my birthday. It usually took me a few days to eat it all too!
Christy B says
My all time favorite dessert is the chocolate cupcake with chocolate lavender buttercream from Bread & Cie. Even though I no longer live in San Diego, I must stop by this bakery when I am in town! I really need to try to make this myself, because soon we will be moving back to the East Coast, to Virginia!
A good chocolate chip cookie is in great danger when I’m around… :)
I can’t get enough of cupcakes! I love them all; I’m an equal opportunity cupcake eater! :)
Suzi H says
CAKE ME! Oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are my go to favorite, but with Thanksgiving coming up I’m craving pecan pie.
CAKE ME! Chocolate chip cookies straight out of the oven! Yum!
Mary Smitley says
Cake Me! Chocolate cake with chocolate icing. Yummo!
CAKE ME! cake, cookies, doesn’t really matter.
Loooove apple crisp!
Cupcakes have a special place in my heart. So does creme brulee. And so do most desserts, actually.
Andrea K says
Cake Me! I LOVE the Southern Living Chocolate Caramel Pecan Pie!
Heather W. says
CAKE ME! I love yellow cake with Chocolate Frosting especially still a little warm with a big glass of milk! Yummy.
CAKE ME! My favorite is Oreo cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory!
Cake Me! I would love any baked good right now…cupcake, cookies, cinnamon rolls…YUM!
Sarah Macon says
Cake Me!I LOVE chocolate chip oatmeal cookies, the oatmeal makes me feel a little less guilty :)
CAKE ME! I love brownies… any kind! My favorite, though, would have to be dark chocolate brownies with sea salt.
CAKE ME! My favorite is definitely chocolate cake with chocolate frosting! I love chocolate!
And I’m pretty sure if it falls into the category of dessert it’s my favorite. Except key lime pie… such a terrible thing coming from a southern girl.
Sara C says
My favorite baked dessert would have to be my great grandmother’s pound cake recipe. (Real) Butter, eggs, (real) sugar, almond flavoring….what’s not to love? And there are now four generations of women in my family who have learned how to make it!
Well, pretty much anything baked with either chocolate or cinnamon would be my favorite! But I think my favorite cake is a triple layer chocolate cake from Cap City Diner in Columbus, Ohio.
Cake me! Hmm… I do love cookies. And cake. And pudding-y desserts though. I might have to go with something pudding-related, even though that might not be baked. Thanks!
Liz C. says
I love me some cupcakes with thick but airy frosting or some good old fashioned cheesecake!
CAKE ME! I love anything in cupcake form!
My favorite baked good is cherry pie :)
Cake Me!!! Homemade Cinnamon rolls!
melissa e. says
I’m always happy with anything double or triple chocolate, death by chocolate, etc. Yumm :)
Natalie Royall says
Cake me!! I love baked goods. Ooey-Gooey hot chocolate chip cookies (white chocolate) are my favorite. Don’t forget the glass of milk! Love you guys, as always your blog cheers up my day!
CAKE ME! I’m crazy for all things chocolate. The more chocolate the better.
The restaurant I used to work at had this amazing triple chocolate cake that changed my mind about chocolate cake. To this day, it’s my favorite baked good anywhere, but a good ol fashioned NY style cheesecake takes a close close second. ;)
