Cake Week Voting Day 3: A Smattering

If you want to see yesterday's winner, click here!

Things are reaching a breaking point, over here.  I'm seriously wondering whose idea this all was.  I mean, for a girl who has vowed not to eat sweets, to be the official over-seer of Cake Week 2012...  I'd like to punch that person right in the mouth.

Please excuse me while I go try and punch myself in the mouth.  
(Don't fear for my safety, I'm a wimp when it comes to inflicting pain on myself.  It'll probably be just a love tap.)


Okay, I'm back.  And in addition to doing nothing productive, that shot to the kisser seems to have loosened some screws.  As a result, today's contestants have nothing in common with each other.  I hope that's okay.  I hope you can bear the randomness.  I mean, if you can't, just go ahead and leave, move on.  And believe me, it's not like I'm going to make up fake names and enter to win 27 times today, and then get today's prize and eat it all by myself.  No, it's nothing like that.  Trust me.  Just move along.  Nothing to see here...

Still there?  

Then I guess I'd better share with you the wonderfully fantastic sponsor we've got today, seeing as how I promised you all that I'd do so!

Our lovely grand prize is gifted to us today by none other than the Mr. Bill F out of Spokane, Washington!  Really, I feel like he's a movie star, being from Spokane and all.  But whether he's made his appearances on the big screen or not, he has done something that will impact your life today - Mr. Bill has made some D-E-Licious Toffee from Annie Bellum's Gourmet Southern Style Toffee that he'd like you to have!

Bill and his lovely wife are originally from the South, which definitely makes me love their confections even more!  I'm a firm believer that everything thing in the South is sweeter (the tea, the pies, the girls, you know!), and so their toffee must be AH-mazing.  See for yourself!

Are you drooling?
Because I'm drooling.
And you know how I don't like to drool alone.
Mr. F from Spokane has offered, to our lovely winner of Day 3, a POUND of either (winner's choice) Dark, Milk, or White Chocolate toffee!  Wouldn't that be a treat, to just have this sweet, crunchy, creamy toffee just show up at your doorstep?  (I'm going to go dream a little dream of that happening to me right now...)

Entry 6:  Chocolate Guinness Cake from Amateur Gourmet

Entry 7:   Crumb Cake from Tracy's Culinary Adventures

And that's our smattering of cake.  Which is quite different from a smashing of cake.  Although I do think these cakes are smashing (Please excuse the UK-talk.  I watched Season 1 of Downton Abby this weekend.  Yes, all of it.  And I'm sad season 2 isn't on Netflix yet.)

Off to continue my cake-less existence,


  1. This one was difficult, but I'm going to have to go with the White Almond Sour Cream Cake, just because it's a little different. Although, I might have to make the Guinness cake just for myself. And no one else. I'll let you know how it goes.
    Also, I'd totally go for the milk chocolate, which I would not share either.

    Sounds like I need to go back to kindergarten. :)

  2. yep definitely drooling.

    1. Join in the contest! Which cake makes you drool the most?

  4. 1.It's not necessarily the most exciting, but I'm into the look of the homemade funfetti cake. That's my vote (If need a tie breaker i'll switch to whichever one i suggested).

    2. I'm into the milk chocolate butter pecan toffee!


  5. I ♥ the Mocha Ice Cream Cake, would LOVE the Milk chocolate toffee and I pinned it, and I shared your post about your blog and giveaway! Unfortuately I don't Twitter so I can't tweet...oh well =)

  6. I'm voting for the crumb cake because 1) I nominated it and 2) I've made it before and it's excellent.

  7. I would take the assortment bag just to give it all a fair try. And, I'll vote for the crumb cake.

  8. Did the FB link. And, I think I'll vote for the crumb cake!!!

  9. Pinned!
    Still voting for Crumb Cake. This is the most fun week!

  10. 1. Mocha Ice Cream Cake, FTW!
    2. Dark Chocolate Toffee, fo’ sho’.
    4. I totally copied and pasted that tweet.
    I don’t have enough brain for more right now. :)
