Note:  The winner of our last giveaway has been announced and winner has been contacted.  See if it’s you!

One of our favorite things is when our blogger friends write cookbooks. We know how much work goes into them (and how rewarding it is to hold all that hard work in print!), so  we love helping them celebrate.

If you’re not familiar with Bridget from Bake at 350, you need to become familiar with her ASAP. She is the queen of cookie decorating and adorable desserts (she even once made cookies for Jim Parsons’ 40th birthday. You know, Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory–no biggie.)

Bridget’s second book, Decorating Cookies Party, was recently released and we couldn’t wait to get our hands on it!

large

It’s gorgeous. And she walks you through the whole process, from the master cookie and icing recipes (one of them is even gluten free!) to all sorts of ridiculously adorable cookies, like this one:

We’re so excited to be giving away a copy of Bridget’s book! Here are the rules:

Enter now through next Thursday, October 23. The winner will be announced on Friday, October 24. 

*United States residents only, 18 years or older (so sorry–it’s the law!)

*Please use an email address you frequently check because that is how we will contact the winner. After contacting the winner, they will have 48 hours to respond; if we don’t hear back within 48 hours, we’ll select another winner.

Y’all ready?? Go! :)

    I love cookies, but I don’t often decorate them because that feels like tedious and unappreciated work. But if I had the right recipes and tips/tricks, I would love the artistry of it :-) Thanks for sponsoring this giveaway!
