Cake Wrecks Book Giveaway! 3 Winners…AWWW YEAH!

This giveaway is now closed. Thank you!

Today’s giveaway is FUN FUN FUN. Please tell me you’ve heard of Cake Wrecks…if not, you are in for a treat, literally and figuratively. See what I mean? Don’t tell me you didn’t laugh.

If you haven’t been to the Cake Wrecks blog, I suggest you check it out stat! I discovered Cake Wrecks when they won a BlogLuxe award for Funniest Blog…and then they linked to all the other BlogLuxe winners and WOWZAH I got a lot of traffic that day and realized everyone and their dog had already discovered this wickedly funny site. It fast became a favorite of mine.

Jen Yates, the mastermind behind Cake Wrecks, recently published her first book, and it’s just as funny as you think it will be. {Although, I probably shouldn’t admit how long it took me to figure out why the cake on the cover is so darn funny.}

Anywhoooo….I did say there was a giveaway, right? Yes there is! Cake Wrecks is giving away THREE copies of the Cake Wrecks book (a New York Times bestseller, might I add) to THREE randomly-selected This Week for Dinner readers! Same drill as always, just post a comment and you’re in the running!

Comments need to be posted by Midnight, Monday December 7. Winners will be announced on Monday, December 7.

And while I hope you win the giveaway…this book is a great holiday gift idea, so you can also buy it here!

GOOD LUCK and enjoy the wreckage!

    My favorite Cake Wreck is one from last year that misspelled Benjamin as “Bunjamioh.” Every time I need a little laugh in the middle of a tough work day, there it is. Poor Bunjamioh.
