Spring Bake

I’ve been in spring break mode lately. You might have noticed since I didn’t bake last weekend. I think it’s because I recently went on a vacation which I haven’t done in a couple of years and it felt awesome to just relax and do nothing. And now being back home I can’t stop enjoying the warmth that’s finally taking over. Spring is probably my favorite time of the year. Unfortunately, in the south, you only have about seven minutes to enjoy the season before the hot and humid heat of summer takes over. Okay, okay – I’m exaggerating a little. It probably lasts eleven minutes. ; ) So you’ve got to enjoy all of them while they last. And I’m trying.

Got Spring Fever, too? Take a break with me and enter this sweet Spring Bake Giveaway for a chance to win a KitchenAid Stand Mixer… in one of the following pastel colors. Plus a white and silver choice in case springy isn’t your speed. Me? I have the pink one, but man, that aqua sky is calling my name. And the ice and crystal blue. too. I’m glad I don’t have to choose.

Enter the Spring Bake Giveaway for a chance to win a KitchenAid 5-quart Artisan Series Stand Mixer

  • To enter, just leave a comment on this post answering the following question.
  • What’s your favorite thing to do or place to go on vacation? Oh and pick your pastel, too.
  • Deadline to enter is Wednesday, April 24th, at 7:00 pm ET. Time’s Up. Winner announced below.
  • One winner will be chosen at random and announced sometime Wednesday evening on this post.

Good luck!

 

Okay, we have a winner. And the winner picked pink. I thought for sure ice or aqua sky would win. So many of you guys love that color. And me too.

The winner is …… Comment # 6625. Yay Veronica! You are getting a pink mixer! And now I totally want to go on vacation again. You guys have fun ideas.

Giveaway sponsored by me.

My favorite place for vacation is anywhere new and exciting! I love to try new foods, I always want to eat where locals eat, and new activities that I’ve never tried before, such as swimming with dolphins or hiking in the rain forest.
And it’s a touch choice but I would have to go with crystal blue

I really like going some place warm that has a nice, sandy (none of that rock business!) beach. Extra points if there’s a balcony facing the beach you can it out on at night.

And I really dig the Crystal Blue mixer!

Valentine said...

Hey Bakerella! Sweet topic for this contest.
Favorite thing to do on vacation is actually to enjoy every minute bringing me closer to a vacation. Haven’t had one in years.

So I close my eyes and enjoy the smell of a warm rainy day with a cup of tea, the sound of a gentle breeze in the branches or the feeling of the sun kissing me.
And I’d definitely go for the pink one!

Cheers and thanks for all your posts!

My favorite thing to do during the summer is church hopping! We usually find ourselves in old European cities for vacation, and my sister and I love visiting as many historic churches as we can. We love the beautiful art, architecture, and history that you find in them.

There’s something about the silver metallic that appeals to my aesthetics. Thanks for this giveaway, I think it’s a great idea!

Vickie said...

DisneyLand. Or DisneyWorld. I’m not picky, as long as it’s Disney related and there’s chances of hugging Mickey Mouse and Eeyore.

And that Pink mixer is just dying to sit on my countertop!

You’re the best!!

Side note, I hope you see this, but awhile back you posted the recipe for the chewy meringue cookies? The sister and i are slowly introducing it to the teachers in the school district (sister’s a teacher). Instant fans in ALL OF THEM.

Whew – 10,000+ Comments. I think my chances are slim to none (or 1/10,000+ to be more accurate), but to give my input from a northern girl, I like to enjoy the spring/early summertime going camping at a state park! We get closer to 15-20 minutes of spring up north, so it’s do-able :)
Also, the aqua sky is calling my name as well if I have some good fortune in these odds.
Thanks for sponsoring these giveaways!
