Another Year and a Giveaway

That day has come around again.  We all have one, happens every year.  That day that is all about you and you find yourself another year older, and if you are lucky, somewhat wiser.  Yes, today is my birthday.  So while I enjoy high tea in what is probably the poshest place I’ve set foot in, I have an equally delicious giveaway for one lucky reader.

I have 2 tickets to the Cake Bake and Sweets Show at Sydney’s Olympic Park on the weekend of March 21-23, 2014.  This show will be pure sugar heaven, with useful resources for any enthusiastic baker and bustling with culinary celebrities to boot!  Think the gorgeous Eric Lanlard, the genius who is Adriano Zumbo and many Masterchef/GABO alumni.


Brush up on your skills with live demonstrations and classes, and sample or buy some decadent products in the marketplace.  The competition is open to Australian residents only and please only enter if you will be in Sydney and available that weekend.  Both tickets will be awarded to one winner, and they cover entry to the show on one of the three days.

To enter, please complete BOTH steps in the two step process:

1. Subscribe to onesmallpot by entering your email address in the ‘Follow’ box (scroll to the bottom of the home page).

2. Let me know in the comment box below the flavours you would choose for your dream cake.  The sky’s the limit on your answer and I will choose the most delicious and creative sounding entry to win.

Good luck and I can’t wait to drool over your answers!!

Entries close Thursday 13th March at midnight Sydney time and the winner will be informed by Monday 17th March.

Tickets are kindly provided by the shows’ organisers. Winner will be chosen by me based on satisfaction of the first criteria as well as what I deem to be the most intriguing answer.

*Update: The winner of the tickets is Louise Wallis! Her idea for Salted Caramel and Mango Cheesecake had me at hello 🙂 Enjoy the show Louise!

  1. my decadent cake involves chocolate (of course) but i am thinking a gateau with rich chocolate cake layered using cherry butter cream and hazelnut butter cream. topped with ganache icing and chocolate dipped orange segments hmmmm

  2. Marble Chocolate and Mocha Wedding Cake- combines me love of choclate and coffee together for a perfect match made in heaven

  3. My dream cake would have be a combination of coconut and banana crème, over a crunchy shortcrust pastry and with a salted caramel drizzle.

    1. Sounds lovely Cyndie! Don’t forget to subscribe to be eligible for the giveaway (couldn’t see your email on the list but I may be having a boy-look).

  4. Happy birthday and have a wonderful year ahead! 🙂
    My dream cake would be the one that has a fudge brownie base with layers of chocolate mousse, fresh strawberry mousse and white chocolate mousse. All covered in a blanket of rich dark chocolate ganache! Yumm! 🙂

  5. Happy Birthday! 🙂
    My dream cake has fudgy brownie base with layers of chocolate mousse, fresh strawberry mousse and white chocolate mousse! All of
    It blanketed in a rich dark chocolate ganache! Yumm 🙂

  6. I’m going through a bit of a love affair with salted caramel at the moment so I would definitely have to incorporate that in it. Something along the lines of a salted caramel cheesecake with caramelised mango segments and mango syrup drizzled on top. I’m already thinking of ways to make this work and mentally trying to balance the flavours. Mmmmm

  7. I make so many different ‘dream’ cakes I cannot choose (and I end up eating them then trying something new each time). Current one on my mind:

    – White chocolate mud slathered over (possibly dark chocolate nibs or bark on the top for contrast)
    – Thick layer of mango mousse to add some fruit crunch
    – Delicious light vanilla sponge
    – Honeycomb base for a slight crunch

    Roll on the weekend so I can make it 😀

So tell me.....
