{Giveaway: 3rd Blogiversary}


It's hard to believe that I first set type to blog 3 years ago on this date.

However, it is, in fact, quite true. I opened Sugar Bean Bakers on Oct. 24, 2010. A lot has happened over the last 3 years. Never did I think anyone beyond my own friends and family would actually read my blog. I've gone from recipes only to recipes and party plans. The party plans are actually some of the most popular posts on my blog. Cool, right? I think so! :)

Today, in honor of my blogiversary, I am having a giveaway!

I have 2 awesome prizes that you are going to LOVE.

First, from my wonderful friend, Heather, a copy of her gorgeous (and delicious recipe filled) book, SprinkleBakes. Heather has another book in the works! I seriously can't wait to see what she has in store for us this time. If you haven't, you must check out her beautiful website (SprinkleBakes) too. She has some of the most aesthetically pleasing desserts you'll ever see. Be sure to click over there. Really. SO. Pretty.

 Secondly, from my most favorite baking supply site, Bake It Pretty, a surprise box of goodies!

I don't even know what will be in the box, so I'm as excited as you are to find out. You'll have to let me know what you got if you win!

I love Bake It Pretty, they always have just what I'm looking for. From cupcake liners (and OH what a selection they have) to the adorable mini glass milk bottles I use often in photos, to stripey straws and so much more. I mention using their products quite often here on SBB, not only for baking, but often for my parties too. I also love that they ship priority mail. I know I'll have my box of good stuff in 2-3 days, which is always awesome for procrastinators like me.


There are TWO prizes. There will be TWO winners. The prizes are individual.

So, here is the deal, you have 3 entries. 1 is required, 2 are optional.

1. Required entry:  Over the last 3 years I have posted many, many recipes and party plans. Please state below which has been your favorite! (Be specific with the post name).

for extra entries (NOT required)
2. Like Sugar Bean Bakers on Facebook
 (if you already like Sugar Bean Bakers on Facebook, just post and say so, you still get the extra entry)
3. Share this post on Facebook



Please, leave a separate comment for EACH entry. A winner will be chosen via a Random.org drawing

Please leave your email in each comment so I can contact you if you win! If there is no contact info, I will draw again.  If you are the winner, your prize will be shipped to you directly from Bake It Pretty or SprinkleBakes.

Contest closes 10/28/13 at 8 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time

The winner will be announced on Oct 28th, 2013.


 Thanks for participating in my Blogiversary Giveaway! Good luck!

Thanks to Heather of SprinkleBakes & Bake It Pretty for sponsoring prizes & to all of you for reading Sugar Bean Bakers.

3 years later and it's still so much fun :)

  1. Happy Anniversary! I'm new to your blog and I love it! I've gone back and looked at many of your older posts, but the only recipe I've had the chance to make is the Caramel Apple Cake, so I'm picking that as my favorite. I already follow your page on Facebook. I couldn't find a Share feature on this page, so I shared on Facebook using your original post. Email: ragdahl76@gmail.com

  4. I have only been around to see your blog for a short time, but I am so glad to be there now. Your posts are awesome, and always give me great ideas (and make me hungry)! I absolutely LOVE the Harry Potter party posts, but to be specific, I love the Harry Potter Party the Second, particularly those awesome wands you made. Holy cow! <3

  5. Oh darn it, how come when you aren't signed in on wordpress, it clears out your comment?! Anyway, what I was saying was that I have only been around your blog for a short time, but I have loved EVERY post I have seen. My favorite, if I must choose, is the one Harry Potter Party the Second, particularly those awesome wands you made. Holy cow!

  28. Happy blogiversary! I "found" your blog via Bakingdom. So difficult to choose which post I like the best, because there are so many great unique recipes (Oatmeal Cake! Buckeye Bites!)... but, I have to say, your Epic Harry Potter Party is just that, EPIC! Thanks so much for sharing all your recipes and parties, and wonderful costumes your Bean has worn over the years! And here's to many more blogiversaries!

  31. Happy anniversary!
    Tough call on the favourite recipe/party idea.
    I think the Alice in Wonderland Unbirthday Party would have to be it. Its my go to story when I want to read something, but can't narrow down what I feel like.

  32. Happy Anniversary!
    I think the Alice in Wonderland Unbirthday Tea Party would have to be my favourite!
    Alice and Through the Looking Glass are my absolute, hands down, all time favourite stories.

  38. I'm actually surprised at how much I love Molly Weasley's Rock Cakes. Probably because the horrid descriptions of Hagrid's scared me off for a while. YUM!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I love the snickerdoodle cupcakes. I also really love all of your Potter inspired stuff. I'm not crafty at all, so I'm extra impressed by all the amazing things you create outside the kitchen. I'm a huge Potter fan, and I love finding other people who get it.
