It's Finally Here: Peggy Does Cake Big 10K Giveaway!

I’m super excited to announce a giant month-long celebration that’s dedicated to YOU!

I created my blog in March of 2010 (before I ever baked anything in my life) as a place to post my "someday" photos, as I had just started a brand new hobby: cake decorating

As I tweaked dozens upon dozens of recipes, researched ceaselessly (can you say "one track mind"?), and practiced away, I thought surely there must be others "out there" like me, trying to learn how to do this on their own. After 8 months of flying solo, in November of 2010, Peggy Does Cake was born on Facebook as a means of interacting with people who actually knew what they were doing. Sixteen months and 10,000 followers later, this has turned into something pretty cool.

Thanks so much to each of you for your support! I’ve made so many friends and met so many talented artists in the last two years. I’m grateful to you for the hand holding, the virtual pats on the back, the reassurance that I am not crazy or obsessed *cough*, and the confirmation that although I may be all my myself in my kitchen at 3:00 a.m. on a Friday, there are thousands more just like me all across the globe, all doing the same exact thing, and none of us are alone in that.

As a way to celebrate YOU, I have been joined by 29 fabulous sponsors (click HERE to check them out) for a massive month-long giveaway!

    I'm Soooo excited about this contest! I've only been baking and decorating for a few years and I seem to have a flair for it that is only matched by my passion. I'm always looking to expand my tools and supplies so that I can practice and learn new techniques. I'd like to thank everyone involved in this. All of you inspire me everyday! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

  14. Finally Peggy!!!!! :o) WooHoo!!!

  15. Ooh this is Sooo exciting! I hope I win!

  16. I used to sit and watch my mother decorate cakes when she owned her own store. As I grew my sister and I got more involved and well my sister has taken off with her business. I do a lot of decorating, mainly for family and some friends but I enjoy it, love to come up with new things and see the joy on their faces when they catch that first glimpse of the creations.

  17. What inspired me to start baking? It was by accident! My friend mentioned she was going to be taking a cake decorating class and I told her that it sounded fun and I had always wanted to try it out. So we took a class...and then another and another. Soon friends and family were asking for cakes and encouraging us along.

  18. I have always liked to bake (cookies mostly), but when my twins turned one I realized how expensive birthday cakes were especially when buying two at a time! I decided to take a cake decorating class a few years later. Now I love to decorate cakes!

  19. I am starting to sell cupcakes at my local farmers market and I am always looking for tips and inspiration...your blog has some really helpful ones! I am so excited about the giveaway!

  20. your work has inspired me to bake and decorate

  21. your work has inspired me to bake and decorate

  22. Love decorating cakes. Started just to do family and our precious grandson. Now I am doing 3 to 4 a week along with a full time job. I love it!

  23. When my uncle passed unexpectedly just before Mothers Day last year, I decided I had to do something special for my favorite aunt. So I made a teapot cake using fondant for the first time. I now have several orders coming in each week for cakes, cupcakes and cake pops!
