Art and Appetite Anniversary GIVEAWAY

Posted in October 14th, 2010, under Giveaways, Misc., Sugar Art

Art and Appetite is celebrating its one year anniversary on October 19th! This is the perfect time to do a giveaway. To start if off, I will be giving away 6 books! Yes, SIX! I have been blessed with so many loyal readers and wonderful emails that I would love to give everyone a chance to win a set of books. THANK YOU everyone! Contest has ended. Check below for winners.

I’ll keep this post short and simple. All you have to do is guess how many pieces of chocolate chips are on the photo above. You can enter by leaving a comment on this post and/or leaving a comment on the Facebook page (look for the official “status” post). I will pick TWO winners; one from this blog and another one from the Art and Appetite Facebook page. You may only enter twice; once on this blog and once on Facebook. Yes, you may ask anyone from your household to enter. Prizes are not redeemable for cash. You must have a valid email address to enter (so I can contact you).

The winner on this blog will recieve four books:
Wedding Cake Art and Design by Toba Garrett
Sugar Orchids for Cakes by Alan Dunn, Tony Warren and Tombi Peck
Sugar Roses for Cakes by Tombi Peck, Alan Dunn and Tony Warren
Satin Ice Sugar Craft by Mercedes Strachwsky

The winner on Facebook will recieve two books:
Wedding Cake Art and Design by Toba Garrett
Satin Ice Sugar Craft by Mercedes Strachwsky (autographed copy) 

Contest ends on Friday, October 22, 2010 at 11:59 PST. CONTEST IS OVER. WINNERS  ARE ANNOUNCED BELOW.

What a close match! Thank you everyone for participating! The chips are triple checked by two people for accuracy. The total number of chocolate chips is:

968

Edited to add: As of 2013, AFTER the contests winner/winners have received their prize/prizes, I have deleted several comments due to an aftermath of realizing missed spam comments. On this matter, the number and order of comments is no longer accurate. Again, this has happened AFTER the winners have been announced during the time frame of the contest.  For updates on future giveaways, you can subscribe HERE, follow me on Twitter or join me on Facebook. Good luck!
