This giveaway has ended! Winner to be announced soon! Bake Me A Wish Gourmet Cake Review and Giveaway

Welcome to my very first blog review with a giveaway! Good luck to you and me both!






When you think about eating your favorite dessert, what comes to mind? Now, imagine that being 10 times better. Are you with me so far? You know, the dessert that is so good it makes you feel all warm and gooey inside while it's melting across your taste buds until you feel a sense of euphoria. Okay, that may be a tad over board but you get my drift.

Recently I had the pleasure of trying a gourmet cake from Bake Me A Wish. We tried the Peanut Butter Mousse cake. Let me tell ya, I had no hesitations about doing this review! I asked my son to help me with this review,(he picked the cake) he was quick to say yes. Of course, he's a teenager, do you know one who doesn't like cake? Sadly for him he went on vacation with relatives the same time I received the cake. I say sadly because I really liked this cake and so did a few friends of mine so, my son only got one piece, the last piece! (Don't judge me, I did save him a piece after all!) ha ha! My son did say he'd buy it every day if he could, so thumbs up there. All of the cakes also come with a personalized plaque made from Belgian chocolate. It was awesome too!
(I never got a chance to take a picture of the actual cake before it was cut into) Although, this is a picture of the same cake we tried.




Bake Me A Wish has my family's seal of approval on their cake. They have many types and flavors of cakes to choose from, it was really hard for us to settle on just one to try. Besides their chocolate cakes they also have carrot cake, coconut cream, vanilla bean, etc... and an assortment of coffee cakes as well.

A little about the Company,

Remember the excitement you felt as a child when your birthday cake was carried into the room? At Bake Me a Wish!, we believe we all still have some of that child inside of us, and our goal is to help you recreate that excitement and experience for your friends, clients or loved ones.

Bake Me a Wish! is the premium nationwide service for delivery of gourmet birthday cakes. Our cakes are made with only the finest, freshest ingredients by an award-winning family run New York bakery that also supplies pastries to some of Manhattan's most elite restaurants.

Through careful cost control and air-tight delivery systems, we are also happy to be able to bring you our fine cakes at an extremely affordable price. Now, whether it's your son in college, your trusted associate, your old friend, or your granddaughter across the country, you will always have a simple and wonderful way to remember them on that important day of the year.

Plus, with our Bake Me a Wish! Calendar, we can keep a record for you of any and all important birthdays so that you never accidentally forget the special people in your life. We will automatically send you a reminder asking if you would like to deliver a cake each time one of your selected dates is approaching.

We believe there is no better way to celebrate that special day of the year than to send a little indulgence from someone who cares.

Our Guarantee: Delivery On Schedule


Bake Me A Wish also has something very special that they do for our soldiers over seas. It's called "Operation Birthday Cake" 5% of your order will also be contributed to Bake Me A Wish!’s Operation: Birthday Cake, which, partners with Soldiers’ Angels and donates birthday cakes each month to soldiers overseas. You can also donate directly to the cause by contacting Bake Me A Wish. Plus, when you purchase the "Freedom cake" for a recipient here in the US, Bake me a wish will deliver a gourmet cake to a soldier serving overseas in the name of your recipient.

So, now that my family has tried some decadence from Bake Me A Wish, it's time for your family to have the same experience! One of my lucky readers will get their very own cake delivered right to their door. The winner will receive the Triple Chocolate Enrobed Brownie Cake
