PRODUCT REVIEW & GIVEAWAY: Bake Me A Wish

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED...THANKS FOR ENTERING!


Remember a few weeks ago I mentioned something about a SWEET little package sitting on my front porch?? Some of you guessed it was chocolate...some of you guessed it was a cake.

Well, guess what...you're both right!

Right before the 4th of July holiday, I was contacted and asked if I would like to try a cake from Bake Me A Wish. In all honesty, I had never heard of the company. But, I was definitely more than happy to do a review on a cake...what's not to love, right??

Bake Me A Wish is a gourmet cake business that specializes in delivering birthday cakes. The company is run by an award-winning family run New York bakery...not only do they deal with the delivery of gourmet cakes, but they also supply goodies to some posh restaurants in Manhattan! So, you know you're going to get a top-notch product...there's no question about quality! Another great thing about Bake Me A Wish is their involvement with the military. They have a program called "Operation: Birthday Cake" and 5% of every cake purchased is donated to purchase soldiers birthday cakes every month (they do this in partnership with Soldiers' Angels). You also have the option to send a cake directly to a soldier. For more information about "Operation: Birthday Cake" please click here {and have a tissue handy}. Another neat feature is The Freedom Cake...for every Freedom Cake you purchase, Bake Me A Wish (along with Soldiers' Angels) will send a Freedom Cake to a soldier serving overseas!

After reading so much about Bake Me A Wish, I was quite pleased & excited to find a box on my front porch from the company. The company ships fast - like overnight fast - and each cake is enclosed within a styrofoam package complete with cooling packs to keep the cake chilled & fresh. I'm sorry to say that I didn't take any pictures of the packaging, but this is what your cake will look like when shipped:

Each cake also comes with a gift card:

I had the pleasure of trying the Triple Chocolate Enrobed Brownie Cake. All I can say is, "Mmmm!" I took the cake into work with me and the girls & I had so much fun "testing" the cake. I work with my husband and he even joined in on the fun and had not one, but TWO slices! The Triple Chocolate Enrobed Brownie Cake is an 8" round cake that is full of chocolatey goodness. It's rich and it's sinfully satisfying, yet it's not overly sweet {at least not in my opinion} and certainly tamed my sweet tooth. I think what is so perfect about this particular cake is that it wasn't cake. It definitely had the smooth, chewy brownie texture & consistency going on and that was A-OK in my book!

Here is a picture of the cake:

Can you see all of the chocolatey goodness that I was talking about? My mouth is watering just looking at the picture! Taste testing this particular cake has only left me with wanting more and I cannot wait to try more of their products.

I truly feel that Bake Me A Wish makes a great product & the premise of their business is perfect...especially for those with family far away, those who don't care to bake or those who are just "stuck" in a gift giving rut. The prices are fairly reasonable and shipping charges, while they seem high, are to be expected for the nature of the business.




Here's where the fun begins...

Bake Me A Wish has generously offered one of my readers a Triple Chocolate Enrobed Brownie Cake!

We're going to keep this contest simple...and fun! Here's what you need to do in order to be entered to win the Triple Chocolate Enrobed Brownie Cake:

This giveaway will be open until 11:59pm EST on Sunday, July 19th and a winner will be chosen on Monday, July 20th. The winner will receive their cake shipped directly from Bake Me A Wish.
