Birthday Month Reader Cake plus GIVEAWAY!! **ENDED**

To help celebrate Birthday Month on Cake Mom, I have asked my talented readers to submit pictures of their favorite cakes that they themselves decorated!

Loren is a wonderful and creative cake decorator and owner of the blog "The Baking Sheet". The cakes and cookies on her site are some of the most unique I have seen and I highly recommend you check her blog out.

She made this awesome Thomas the Tank Engine cake for her son's 4th birthday party.
One of the coolest parts was the inside! The colorful effect is a called a "kaleidoscope cake" and she was kind enough to provide me with a tutorial! So, stop back tomorrow for her Technique/Terminology Thursday guest post tutorial!

Loren was so excited to be featured on Cake Mom, that she wants to offer a giveaway!! Thanks, Loren!!

Win it! Loren, the creative baker behind the blog "The Baking Sheet", is offering one lucky Cake Mom reader the book: "Creative Cookies"!!

From Barnesandnobles.com:
Creative Cookies: Delicious Decorating for Any Occasion by Toba Garrett
A feast for the eyes as well as the palate, this collection from media favorite Toba Garrett is available again.

"The mouth-watering photos are enough to send you running to the store for baking equipment and ingredients...[these are] gorgeous works of art. A wealth of photographs and illustrations ensures that even novices will have success with their cookie-making marathons."-- New York Daily News

"Marvelous book...Superb photography shows the excellence of Ms. Garrett's work...A must for the cookie aficionado."--American Cake Decoration

Toba Garrett--master baker, critically lauded author, and recent guest on Emeril Live--has devised cookies so delectable and exquisitely decorated that home chefs will be searching for occasions to make more. The simple recipes range from gingerbread to shortbread, from sugar cookies to chocolate. But what really makes these extra special are Garrett's clever techniques for turning the cookies into works of art that delight the eye as much as they please the palate. There are ruffled bibs in soft pastel hues for a baby shower, a white chocolate rose with eight petals, and a 3D bride and groom for wedding and anniversary celebrations. Anyone can create these effects with confidence thanks to the author's clarity and creativity.
