The Betty Birthday Contest!

Pin It

I love birthdays! Always have. Anyone who knows me can vouch that when it comes to birthday's I really do what I can to make a little magic happen. . . some examples of this would include The Shark Week Cupcakes and the EPIC Fake Bacon Onion Ring Cheeseburger "cake" pictured above I made for Dan. This of course leads me to my little problem. . . I turn 35 in a week and I can't decide which Betty cake recipe to make this year. I mean she has pretty much created The Pantheon of Cake Gods in this thing. So I'm letting you, my loyal food friends, choose for me and win a prize. . . Here's your choices: 
  • German Chocolate Cake
  • Molten Lava Cake
  • Silver White Cake with White Mountain Frosting
  • Chocolate Chip Cake with Chocolate Ganache
  • Peanut Butter Cake with Chocolate Buttercream Frosting
  • Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting
All you have to do is leave a comment below voting for what recipe you'd like to see next Friday and we'll choose one follower (sorry to be so strict but we have to have a way to contact you) to win these cute little espresso cups with precious little piglets on them and a $10 gift card to Starbucks. I know - We should be supporting a local coffee shops but some of you guys are in like Europe and really how are we going to make that work? Besides, Starbucks has these new vegan cookies and frappucinos now and they always have soy milk - so really it shouldn't too hard to spend $10 there.


We'll announce the winner on Wednesday May 20, 2010 and posting the recipe on May 21, 2010 and perhaps eating an entire cake that evening.

PS - Bunnies.

  17. They all sound delish but I have to go with Peanut Butter Cake with Chocolate Buttercream Frosting!

  18. I will vote for German Chocolate because I love it & because it would be a huge challenge to veganize it. When it is made from scratch the 4 eggs have to be separated etc. Would love a vegan version.

  19. I'm a little disappointed that every vote on here isn't for the peanut butter cake with chocolate buttercream frosting. I trust you'll do what you know in your heart to be the right thing. I've never even heard of a peanut butter cake. It just makes sense.

  21. Although the choices all sound delicious, I'd love to see a vegan recipe for Carrot Cake w/Cream Cheese Frosting and will probably eat the entire thing myself once I make it ;-) Happy Bday in advance!

  24. Totally have to do the carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. I am new to veganism - 2 months and counting - and I am still learning how to veganize so I would LOVE to see how you would veganize this recipe.

    I love your blog btw...a friend sent me the link to your Betty Crocker Project and I think it's fabulous. :)

  27. I'm not a 'wise' man. I'm no expert on 'things'. But if I know ONE DAMN THING in this world it is that you deserve a Peanut Butter Cake with some damn chocolate buttercream frosting.

    I hope, for your sake, for my sake, for the sake of all these good people - that you make this Peanut Butter Cake with Chocolate Buttercream Frosting.
