Start To Finish Cake Decorating DVD GIVEAWAY! ENDS Jan. 12

Have you ever tried to decorate a birthday cake for your little one, having great intentions, and wound up at some crummy grocery store with mere seconds to spare, shopping the "bakery" for something, anything, that will work instead?

Well, I have got THE GIVEAWAY for you.
My mom is Linda McClure, and she is a cake decorator. She's created a fantastic way to decorate cakes using a Cricut or any paper cutting system, and she's also marketing a "Start to Finish" DVD, outlining EVERYTHING you need to know to bake the PERFECT cake. Seriously folks. No previous talent or experience is needed. My cakes looked awful before my mom started teaching me, and every single thing she's taught me (plus more I don't even know) is found on this DVD.

She also includes recipe cards for her great cakes. My mom's recipes are simple and some of the BEST I've ever tasted. It's almost worth buying it just for the recipe cards for cake and frosting.

Retails: $34.95 + $3 shipping...think of how much money you've wasted on crappy cakes that taste like cardboard and shortening. For less then $40, you can learn secrets to a great cake, wowing family and friends when they see a cute cake that also tastes great.
Want one for free? Enter my giveaway. There are tons of ways to win...but only one winner.

Mandatory Entry: Visit either of my mom's sites(Deseret Designs and Creative Cakes) and tell me something about a cake you loved, or something about my mom or her DVD's.

BONUS ENTRIES:

And of course, leave a separate comment for each...all are worth one entry unless otherwise stated...

  • Follow my blog (left sidebar)
  • Grab my button and post it on your blog...leave a link to your site
  • Follow me on twitter and tweet about the contest (including me in the tweet) JESSREMINGTON...can be done twice daily (leave comment every time you do)
  • Follow me on FB (left sidebar...not a super happenin' place to be, but hey, it's there!)
  • Buy any of my mother's other DVD's...leave a comment that you did that and I will verify with my parents...at which time you will receive 500 entries per DVD purchased.
  • Post a link sharing a "cake wreck" or masterpiece picture that you've made all by yourself.
  • Blog about this giveaway (leave a link in the first comment you leave, worth 10 entries) with a link to both this giveaway and my mom's website ( www.creativedesignscakes.com )
  • Tell me your favorite flavor of cake or tell about your worst cake decorating experience, even if it was not you who made the cake.
This is really and truly the DVD for anyone wanting to try to make the dream cake for their little one all on their own! Contest runs through Jan. 12.

Happy Birthday Jessica!!!!!

I've visited your mom's website several times, I love her videos on how to bake cakes, I really liked how she used a wet towel wrapped around the cake pan so the cake would bake evenly. On another group I'm on, they have posted links to your mom's website for making cakes with the cricut.

I wished she lived closer, but hey we have Jessica here to make our cakes.

Oh gosh. My worst experience? I'm new at baking, cooking I'm great at - it's baking that pulls me down. I was trying to bake a cake for my parents' 25 year anniversary this past September - the cake BURNT!! Not only did it burn, but after I scraped off the bad parts (as instructed by my not-so-smart cousin) I tried covering it with icing.. Uhgg! It tasted awful! It looked relatively nice, but tasted awful! My parents ate a few bites, to try and make me feel better - but I told them to not, because it really was terrible.
