Guess what? It’s giveaway day! But first…let’s talk about fall.
We’ve had the windows open for five nights and the cool breeze is drifting in now that autumn is officially here. I love being able to put on a sweatshirt with pajama pants or slip on a chunky sweater and boots. Along with cozy clothing comes hot tea and toasty morning coffee, and while some people are fighting each other in line for the next pumpkin spice latte, I’d rather pass on the flavored drinks and head straight for the food. Pies, canned fruit butters, warm English muffins with melting butter, and spiced cakes. I love these fall flavors and they seem to pop up at just the right time. It’s like the cravings for these things are hard-wired into our brains, isn’t it? When the first cold breeze comes through, someone bring me pumpkin spice cake and a hot coffee!
But the recipe for the pumpkin spice cake is going to come later! We have other exciting things to talk about today. I know you’re going to be making autumn cakes and cupcakes like me because of that whole hard-wired cravings thing, so I am bringing you a giveaway to make that task a little easier and a lot more fun.
ther to offer as a giveaway to my readers! That means you! Now we can spend the fall creating beautiful cupcakes with icing towers and cakes decorated with glorious swirls together. Just leave a comment to enter to win. The winner will be drawn this Saturday at 10:00 AM (via random.org) to coincide with the Cake Boss Cake Roulette demonstrations happening in all Michaels Stores across the U.S.
Discover your passion for baking fall sweets by playing “Cake Roulette” at Michaels during the free event celebrating this season’s launch of Cake Boss baking products. Just visit a Michaels during this event and spin a colorful “Cake Roulette” wheel to explore your reasons for baking and learn what it takes to bake like “The Boss.” (The Boss, in this instance NOT the Springsteen “Boss.”)
All “Cake Roulette” players will receive a recipe card associated with whatever Cake Boss product was featured in their spin. There will also be winning ‘spins’ where you will take home select Cake Boss products. (More prizes!) Michaels is also offering product information and demonstration videos featuring Buddy Valastro on their web site, www.michaels.com. Check those out; there are some great tips.
