Celebrate More Fall Pillsbury Baking Giveaway! (closed)

Pillsbury Fall Giveaway

Fall is the start of baking season for many of us. As the weather gets cooler and the holidays approach, we are inspired to turn on our ovens and get out our spices. Even cake and cookie mixes can get into the fall spirit, and new Pillsbury® seasonal Caramel Apple and Pumpkin mixes are the perfect example. They have seasonal flavors that fit in perfectly with the fall weather, but let you cut down on some of the time you have to spend in the kitchen when it comes to entertaining. To kick-start the holiday baking season, I teamed up with Pillsbury to host a fall giveaway that includes lots of goodies that will allow you to celebrate more – and celebrate better!

The fall giveaway includes:

  • One Pillsbury Caramel Apple Cake Mix
  • One Caramel Apple Cookie Mix
  • One Caramel Apple Frosting
  • One Perfectly Pumpkin Cake Mix
  • One Pumpkin Crème Cake with Vanilla Frosting
  • One Perfectly Pumpkin Cookie Mix
  • 100 dollar Visa or American Express gift card

Total estimated giveaway value: $115

To enter the contest, just leave a comment below and tell me what your favorite fall dessert to bake is. The winner of the contest will be chosen at random, so those who love to bake classic pumpkin pies will have just as much chance of winning as those who prefer pecan! The contest ends at midnight Sunday, October 20th and one winner will be randomly selected from the entries at that time. Don’t forget to fill in your e-mail on the comment form (it will not be made public), as that is how I will contact the winner, and good luck to everyone!

And if you need some inspiration when it comes to putting those mixes to good use, try my Salted Caramel Apple Mug Cake for a salty-sweet dessert that takes only 3 minutes to make and is perfect for fall!

  15. When the weather starts getting colder I stark baking more in general since I’m less inclined to use my (super terrible and inefficient about heat retention because it’s cheap because we rent) oven in the summer when it’s already hot. I tend to gravitate towards chocolate things. Last year my fall go to treat was single serve chocolate lava cakes. I can’t wait to see what this year’s will turn out to be!

  16. My favorite fall baking is apple crisp.

  17. Yay, fall baking!!! Baked apples with caramel… pumpkin spice muffins… turtle cheesecake… I can’t wait to get started!!!

  18. My version of pumpkin “dump” cake – the pumpkin pie layer is sweetened with dulce du leche (I make my own by boiling a can of sweetened condensed milk) and bourbon, and the cake mix on top is spice cake mix with melted butter, oats, and pecans! I am not allowed to show up to our Harvest potluck without it!
