We’ve been excited all month about the publication of our new book Cake Ladies. It’s not just all the sweet frosting that has fueled our enthusiasm (but it certainly helps). This delightful visit with 17 Southern women and their personal experiences in cake through family and community as well as their most cherished recipes is resonating with audiences across the country. Read more about the book in my earlier post here.

To put a final cap on our month-long celebration of the book, we’re offering up a special giveaway to one lucky winner. We have one autographed copy of the book and a limited-edition, hand screen-printed white bib apron featuring the Cake Ladies logo from the cover of the book.

How can you enter for a chance to win this sweet set of goodies? It’s easy: Leave a comment on this blog post by 9 p.m. EST on Wednesday, November 2. Any comment will do, but you could tell us what your favorite cake is.

One winner will be selected at random and announced on Tuesday, November 8. Click here for the official rules.

    I would love to win the prize!  My favorite cake would have to be my brother in law, Bill’s apple cake with cream cheese icing, it is really yummy.

    Tara Roberts says:

    My favorite cake thus far is a chocolate cake with the liquid in it being Kahula liqueur & topped with whipped cream & raspberries. Unfortunately, my husband doesn’t drink so I haven’t had the opportunity to make this cake in quite a while.

    German chocolate is my favorite, homemade, of course!

    craftynester says:

    I hate to admit this but I love any kind of cake, frosted though beats out non-frosted but I love them all! And a cake always makes any occasion special.

    This is an amazing giveaway, my favourite cake is Chocolate fudge cake.  Since having to go wheat free been looking at all my old time favourites and seeing how I can adapt them using alternative flours.

    What a great book!  I can’t wait to read it.  How can I choose just one favorite cake?  My grandma’s pound cake comes immediately to mind but I also crave my mom’s chocolate fudge cake.  My own cheesecake is luscious and my daughter’s carrot cake can’t be beat!  My aunt’s fresh apple cake, the neighbor’s pig pickin cake….the list goes on and on.  Thanks for the opportunity to win!

    Eclairre says:

    I love carrot with cream cheese frosting!

    Emma Howser says:

    This book looks like a dream.  I have many favorite cakes,  but as an all time favorite I would say:  Hummingbird Cake.  So delicious,  so layered in flavors!!  And so time consuming to make.  Childhood favorite.

    Misty Adams says:

    I really want to have this book. Cake is one of my favorite things and being southern, I can relate to its traditional role in southern cooking. Good old fashioned yellow cake with fudge frosting is my all-time favorite.

    Drmithome says:

    Would love to win this book.

    SueBE says:

    Favorite cake?  Chocolate with chocolate icing.  Or with peanut butter icing.  Or Texas sheet cake.  Do I really have to have just one?

    Robbie says:

    I would love to win! I love cake… I love how they look, and how they taste. I love creative cakes, and sometimes I love just a plan ‘ole piece of cake that is warm and doesn’t even have time to be frosted! My mom decorates cakes, so my sister’s and I used to love eating the “scraps” she had to carve off to make the cakes level…. I almost enjoyed that more than the finished cake!

    All cake is good!

    Mmmm…well, my least favorite cake is from-a-grocery-store-for-a-birthday-party-at-work cake.  My favorite cakes include angel food (made by my mom), carrot cake (when it’s moist), chocolate cake & its German variation…I could go on and on but I think you get the idea.  Thanks for the giveaway and congratuations on another book that looks wonderful.

    Chall6 says:

    My very favorite cake is the old fashioned Red Velvet Cake made from the recipe handed down from my great grandmother! It is not just “colored chocolate cake” but has a specific use of vinegar, providing a pleasant tang, complemented by cream cheese frosting. Mmmm, good! I would love to win this contest and give the prizes to my mother for a Christmas surprise, she loves cookbooks and regional American recipes!

    Dorothy says:

    My father made THE best Boston cream pie I’ve ever tasted, and for my birthday he would bake me a spice cake with butter cream frosting with a hint of cinnamon. Thank you for bringing those memories to the forefront!

    Emily says:

    Though it’s cliche, I’d have to say red velvet is my favorite cake.  That always puts a smile on my face :)

    My fave cake is yellow with chocolate frosting, but I will always have a soft spot in my heart for red velvet, which is what we ate almost every Christmas Even when I was a kid, and for coconut cake, which will always make me think of my grandmother.
