GIVEAWAY! Wilton Ultimate Trim-N-Turn Caddy (CLOSED)

Congratulations #17!! Stacy M. You win the carrier!!
Thank you to all who took the time to enter!!

Think this is just an ordinary cake carrier?? Oh no! I am so excited about this. I just got it from the FedEx man today, and I'm so excited about it, that I'm giving one away to one of you lucky people!

So, this "Ultimate Trim-N-Turn Caddy" is three awesome decorating 'must-haves' in one:

- It's a cake carrier.

- It's a raised TURNTABLE!! (That's right! It turns! And clicks sturdily into place!)

- It's a removable cake plate. (Yes, it's plastic, but still super cute!)
And yes, I realize it's May, and I'm showing you a fall cake on it, but work with me! I was excited! And it's the only fake cake I have decorated around here.

It would be PERFECT to bring your cakes to and from the next cake decorating class you take with me! (What? Not subtle enough for you?!)

Alrighty! Here's your how to enter and the fine print:

#1- Leave me a comment about your favorite birthday cake ever, whether you made it, Mom made it, you had it at the coolest birthday party ever, whatever.

#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 Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest (or all three), and let me know that you did so.

The Info:
This giveaway will be open until 6:00 am (Central Time) Wednesday, May 16, 2012.
I'm sorry, but it is only open to those U.S. Residents (because other countries have too many rules about giveaways) who are 18 years-old or older.
You must put your name (and email address) 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 carrier myself, with my own money. No one gave me anything for this post.
The approximate retail value of the caddy is $69.99.

*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.

    my favorite cake was my cake last year! My 11 yr old daughter made it all by herself while I was gone at the winery with a bunch of friends. She had a decorated (drew) a bottle of wine on the top of the cake pouring wine (red) into a glass. It was an awesome surprise! And she even cleaned the kitchen and her dishes!!

    Honestly, I don't remember specifically my favorite BIRTHDAY cake. I just remember enjoying my birthdays and having cake. I have very much enjoyed making cakes for my boys, though, including my older son's Yo Gabba Gabba Brobee cupcake for his first birthday, which was poorly dyed green and left his fingers green for days!


    I get the emails - and utilize them!
