It looks like you all are going to get a break from my raspberry desserts this weekend....and have the chance to win one of 5 copies of Elisa Strauss' new pastry-cake book "Confetti Cakes For Kids".
I have been given the chance by the sweet and super efficient Anna from the Hachette Group to get a copy of the book before its official release on November 5th and she graciously offered to have 5 copies available for you!
Don't know Elisa Strauss? She is the owner of Confetti Cakes in New York, and the author of The Confetti Cakes Cookbook where her signature Handbag Cake is featured on the cover. She has made countless appearances on TV in Good Morning America, Food Network's cake challenges, etc...Check out this little video if you would like to put a face on the name. Well, she has now written a cake book especially for kids...although I got to say that the Gift Box Cake is something I would like for my own birthday!!
Do not be intimated by her level of expertise, designs or ideas. The instructions to reproduce her witty and fun cakes are extremely detailed. I admit I am not the most patient cake decorating person but the projects are so fun and the results so beautifully detailed, they make me want to get started pronto. I already have my eyes on the "Pajamas Cookies" ...so cute! "The Candy Factory Cake" or the "Beach Pail Cupcakes"....so fun! Everything you need to know is spelled out in the book so both novices and seasoned bakers.
The pictures are fantastic, sharp, crisp and there are tons of shots of all the little details you need to reproduce such cakes.
Yes...I am excited about that one...I need to check in the neighborhood whose birthday is coming up...or I'll just make the mini pumpkin cakes for us soon.
So...all this to say that if you would like to receive a copy of this book:
- leave a comment in this post. One entry per person, more will be automatically deleted. Thank you!
- the giveaway runs until Tuesday October 14th midnight (US eastern time) and winners will be announced shortly after.
- Even if you wish to remain anonymous, sign at least a letter or a pseudonym so it is easier to announce if you win
- As always, mom, you can't enter this one...
There are 5 copies available for readers in the US and Canada. I am sorry for readers overseas but I have had issues in a previous drawing and some books never made it abroad and I would hate for the same thing to happen again.
