Cake Decorating Kit Giveaway - CLOSED

How Would You Like to Win This?!  
I'm Sorry, but THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED.

Wilton's 50-piece Cake Decorating Kit... plus piece 51, a Cake Leveler.
This is the kit that started me on this whole cake decorating road. I got mine about 12 years ago when I took my first Wilton class.

This week I hit a milestone with the blog. To thank you, I am giving away this decorating kit. You can't see a lot of the contents because they're all wrapped on the bottom of that tray.


So, here's a photo and description of the kit from Wilton's website:
Standard Round Tips #2, 3, 5, 7, 12; Standard Open Star Tips #16, 18, 21, 32; Standard Basketweave Tip #47; Standard Leaf Tip #67; Standard Petal Tips #101, 103, 104; Drop Flower Tips #133, 225; Multi-Opening Tip #233; Leaf Tip #352; Tip #2004 (2D), No. 7 Flower Nail; 18 Disposable Bags; one 10 in. Soft Touch Bag; Tip Brush; Decorator Brush; two Standard Couplers; 8 in. Angled Comfort Grip Spatula; four .5 oz. Icing Colors: Lemon Yellow, Christmas Red, Royal Blue, Leaf Green; Practice Board; New Cake Decorating Beginner's Guide.

... plus the cake leveler.

How to Enter:
You have three chances to enter. ALL ENTRIES MUST BE MADE IN SEPARATE COMMENTS ON THIS POST ONLY.

 #1- Leave me a comment telling me either what recipe/technique you've tried and liked or what you'd like to see me write a post about.

#2- Let me know that you get my emails, or "like" me on Facebook, or are a "follower" of the blog.

#3- Share or link to this post on either Facebook or Twitter, and let me know that you did so.

The Info:
This giveaway will be open until midnight (12:00 am Central Time) Monday, February 27, 2012.
I'm sorry, but it is only open to U.S. Residents (because other countries have too many rules about giveaways).
You must put your name in your comments. I can't trace anonymous comments.
I will announce the winner - chosen by a 5-year-old pulling a number out of a hat - by noon the same day.

The Fine Print:
I bought this kit myself, with my own money. No one gave me anything for this post.
The approximate retail value of the kit and leveler is $65.
*Note: I can't respond to comments left so that I don't throw off the numbers. And it may sometimes take a while for your comments to appear. I promise to moderate them as quickly as possible.

  6. I love your Royal Icing recipe! I was never able to make Royal Icing quite work for me before (even in Culinary School) but your recipe is fool proof. I think the key is the wiping everything down with vinegar. Thanks!

  7. I haven't tried anything in a long time, but I love the flip flop cupcakes! Think those would be awsome for my daughters 2nd birthday in November!

  11. I've only just found your blog, but it looks amazing! I look forward to going through everything you've done so far and finding more ideas for myself. I want to try making a cake with a shape in the middle (like your cake with the ornament). Something I'm always working on is making substitutes so friends with dietary restrictions can have my creations as well. I haven't looked around enough to see if you do this at all, but I'd love some posts about baked goods for vegans, gluten free, lactose free, etc.

  17. Thanks to your cream cheese frosting recipe, I no longer use store bought! YAY! I'm not a baker, though I'd love to be, and often try...So knowing that I can whip up your frosting and use it in our cake pops (all the time!!) is so awesome!

  53. I made a chocolate Valentine's Day cake and made your Amazingly Good Strawberry Icing for the filling and frosted it with your Basic Buttercream Decorator Icing. I made heart decorations by coloring the icing and just piping overlapping hearts. While I didn't LOVE the taste of the buttercream recipe, it was very easy to work with! But everyone LOVED the strawberry icing! It was so easy to make and I plan to use it again...maybe on chocolate cupcakes! I even had a friend ask for the recipe. I will post a picture for you when I do my FB post!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Yes to all three! I get my emails, I "like" you on Facebook, and am a "follower" of your blog!
