1000th Post Celebration Giveaway

115 Flares 115 Flares ×



Best Friends For Frosting has hit 1,000 posts all about desserts, and we want to celebrate with a fantastic giveaway!  Best Friends For Frosting was originally born as a creative outlet just for my mom and I to showcase our homemade desserts on a blog.  As  I continued to surf the internet for inspirational desserts, I wanted one place to show off all the desserts I wish I had the time to make.  My mom got too busy to bake with me, so I took Best Friends For Frosting to an entirely different level.  I recruited an entire team of dessert trends contributors who are just as passionate about dessert as myself.  Best Friends For Frosting transformed into a website  filled with different desserts that I would put in the bakery I once dreamed of opening.  Fun Fact: For two years prior to blogging I worked at three bakeries just to learn how to operate my own.  The deal breaker?  Creative freedom far outweighed making a profit.
I am so grateful for ALL of the talented bloggers who spend countless hours finding delicious recipes, baking by trial & error, taking photos, and blogging about such gorgeous and scrumptious desserts.  You are such an inspiration to me!
So with all of that said, I am so ready to celebrate! I wish I could give each of you a gift. Realistically, I can’t, but I thought a giveaway would be a superb way to celebrate! Get out your party hats and don’t forget the cake!   Why?  Because  we want to celebrate 1,000 posts with you by dishing up this terrific giveaway.  I dug deep in the press and found some highly recommended shops from Oprah, Martha Stewart, Rachael Ray, Nickelodeon, Katie Holmes, and, of course, popular picks from our fellow bloggers.  One lucky BFFF reader will win all of the items pictured above- a nearly $500.00 value.
