It’s time for a Giveaway!!

Pin It PIN IT!

It’s sunny, warm and Friday, which means I’m in a fabulous mood. And what do I do when I’m in a fabulous mood? HOST GIVEAWAYS! Weee! I haven’t hosted a giveaway since way before the wedding so it’s definitely well over due! So what is my generous soul giving away today? Well, it has to do this hilarious woman pictured below, Amy Sedaris.

If you haven’t heard of her, do a Google search this instant. This woman is gut-busting hilarious and her cookbook, Hospitality Under the Influence, is chock full of her hilarious anecdotes, jokes and amazingly delicious recipes. On any page, you can expect to find a recipe for grandma’s cherry pie and a diagram of the male anatomy. Talk about fun in the kitchen!

However, a fabulous copy of her cookbook is not all you get. The book is also about how to throw a fabulous party, and one can’t throw a fabulous party without…

…a fabulous cake stand! You can’t showcase your 3-layer double┬áchocolate┬ácake on just any ol’ plate! So how can you win?

1. Leave a comment with your FAVORITE dessert. Don’t need the recipe, just share your favorite indulgence!

2. Like me on Facebook.

3. Follow my tweets!

4. Do a little retweet of this giveaway!

Giveaway ends on April 24th at midnight. Good luck!

    My favorite dessert would have to be the one I made for my first Valentine's Day as a Mrs. It's a dairy-free adaptation of Williams-Sonoma's Chocolate Ganache Heart Cakes recipe.

    Mine is my grandmother's red velvet cake. By using non-dutch processed cocoa, the reaction between the cocoa and the buttermilk produces a dark reddish brown cake without that red food coloring flavor that many bakers use. I know that cake would look beautiful on that cake plate!
