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 PillsburyÂ® 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 CrÃ¨me 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, justÂ leave a comment belowÂ and tell me whatÂ your favorite fall dessert to bakeÂ 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 atÂ midnight Sunday, October 20thÂ and one winner will be randomly selected from the entries at that time. Donâ€™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 CakeÂ for a salty-sweet dessert that takes only 3 minutes to make and is perfect for fall!
