Sugarlicious! Pink Posie Petits Fours...and a giveaway!

Sugarlicious!  Have you heard of it?
Sugarlicious is the new and precious book from Meaghan Mountford of The Decorated Cookie.

First, let me tell you about Meaghan.  Not only is she incredibly talented and creative, she's one of the most generous and kind bloggers around. In addition to running her blog, she is the edible crafts editor over at Craft Gossip.  Meaghan has been so supportive to all of us who play with our food.  Despite never having actually met her, I consider her a true friend.

Now, to Sugarlicious!  I received my copy from Amazon last week and immediately dove right in!  It's full of all sort of adorable and colorful projects for birthdays, holidays...you name it.  Decorated cookies?  Check.  Cake pops? Check.  Decorated Marshmallows? Check.  Edible Gnomes?  Check.

I volunteered to bring dessert for the teachers at my son's school yesterday, so I tried my hand at the painted petits fours...

...Meaghan baked her petits fours, I used Oreo Cakesters.  That's just our little secret, right?

{I can use a little more practice with my fondant smoothing...and should have evened up those Cakester edges with a round cookie cutter, but STILL.  Aren't they adorable?!?}

I can think of a million places to take these...baby showers, bridal showers, birthday parties...I love them.

You'll find the petits fours and many, many other projects in the book (over 200 pages!), all explained in detail with lots of darling illustrations.  The "Techniques" section is pretty much a must for anyone wanting to have some fun playing with cookie, cake and marshmallow decorating.  I think what I love most about the book is that the projects are ADORABLE and actually DOABLE!  They're not intimidating, and they don't require you to have attended pastry school.  Meaghan walks you through each and every step clearly and with lots of helpful hints.

OK...so you want a copy of Sugarlicious, right?  Well, one reader is not only going to win a copy of the book, but all of this...
 ...THE book, recipe booklet, post its, oven mitt, apron & spatula!

Since Sugarlicious is so bright, happy & colorful...
To Enter: leave a comment on this post telling me your favorite color!

Giveaway closed! Congrats to Cristin!!! 
Good luck!

Congratulations, Meaghan on a beautiful, fun, and inspiring book!!!
