Happy Birthday (Marie Antoinette Style) + Giveaway!

Print Friendly and PDF



As you all know, in the beginning of March we had a fantastic long weekend in Charleston courtesy of Avalon Winery when I was a finalist in their Great American Recipe Contest!  We had access to the Charleston Food + Wine Festival's grand tasting tents which was an array of delicious local and homemade products from around the area!
There we were introduced to an amazing Southern bakery called “Sugaree’s Bakery”.  They are located in Mississippi so you lucky Southerners can eat all the cake you want!  John and I are total Yankees – living in New England and New York our entire lives.   Imagine our surprise when we tasted Caramel Cake, for the first time (which is so sad that both of us have spent over 50+ years combined on this planet and never had this delectable dessert).  I was enthralled and of course, me being me, I got to speaking with one of the women.  That led to tastes of the Red Velvet and Coconut Cake.  Well, I could have sat there and eaten the Red Velvet cake all day.  But not John…he had very quietly devoured the entire slice of coconut cake and was giving me that look.
C’mon ladies, you know that look.  It says I will love you so much if you just FEED ME MORE.  Imagine his (and my) happiness when I heard we could order from them online.  I reached out to them to let them know how much we loved their cakes and I was thrilled that they wanted to share my love of cake with all of you!!!  You can try any one of their delicious flavors that comes right to your door fresh and delicious. 
My birthday is a special occasion so we’re going to celebrate!  I’m turning 27 Marie Antoinette style and letting YOU eat cake!  Next time you miss someone’s birthday, I can promise you instant love by just sending one of these cakes.  Or better yet, send a gift card so the recipient can pick the cake themselves!  I know in my family, M would be eating the chocolate cake; K, Red Velvet.  And I don’t think anyone would turn down their first bite of real Southern Caramel Cake.  Honestly, you can’t go wrong.
Now to the important part – the birthday giveaway! 

TO ENTER:  The contest will run until Friday, March 22nd at 11:59 PM EST.  My computer clock will judge that.  I will choose a winner from Random.org.  

**Giveaway is NOW CLOSED!

EVEN IF YOU DON'T WIN:  Use "THEGROWINGFOODIE" promo code at checkout at Sugaree's and receive $10 off your order!

Disclosure:  I did not get compensated for this post by being paid in money or paid in free cake.  Anyone who attended the Food + Wine Festival would have tried any of the same cakes we did.  I liked them so much that I chose to reach out to Sugaree's Bakery.  They were kind enough to offer one directly to my readers in honor of my birthday.  I hope you all enjoy!
