Dessert Designer Book & Baking Giveaway

(Disclosure: I received a copy of the book and a baking set but all thoughts are my own.)

One thing the boys and I love to do together is bake delicious treats {and then eat them of course}. A book came out in February called Dessert Designer that is perfect for families like ours. The Author, Dana Meachen Rau, shows children and parents how to go beyond just baking and focus on the really fun part- the decorating! I loved flipping through the book and seeing all of the creative designs and the best part is that most of them looked fairly easy to put together.

Look at this cute design from the book:

¬†Aren’t those so creative? I am so in love with how many cute ideas are in this book and I think the boys are going to love decorating cupcakes to actually look like something {as opposed to just dumping half a bottle of sprinkles on a frosted cupcake}!


One reader will win a copy of the book, a set of nesting bowls, and a spatula.

  2. I’d like to make an Alaskan Malamute cupcake as I have an Alaskan Malamute named Yoyo who is absolutely adorable!

  3. My step daughter and I would absolutely love to win this set. We enjoy making things together. We even took a cake decorating class together a couple years ago. It was an adult class but even at her young age, she did better than a couple adults! We would have a lot of fun together with this book. The first animal we would like to make is a dog because we have quite a few dogs, including several rescues. She would likely get creative and try to make various breeds based on the original dog design. Another she thought would be fun is an elephant….or a sea creature. She has a great imagination and is very artistic and loves to do stuff like this. Thanks for the chance to win!
