    3. I would love to have a signed copy of your book. I’d start with Pavlova (the berry season is upon us), Rhubarb and Brown Butter Tart, the plum cake (my favorite stone fruit), Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie, and Carrot cake (my favorite type of cake), Etc.

    2. Oh my goodness, I can’t even imagine which recipe I’d start with! I’ve been following your blog for years, and I was so excited when you got your show.

    1. Hi Kelly! Yes, if you’re already signed up for the newsletter, you’re good to go!

  6. I do not have your beautiful baking book but I would absolutely love to have a copy!
    Choosing what I would bake first is a very tough question. I love a good pound cake and I love the flavor of lemon so I would probably make the lemon curd pound cake. Then perhaps the marble pound cake or the plum cake or maybe the devils food cake!!! So many amazing choices!!!! I would bake these cakes for my family. My mother was a Holocaust survivor who baked the most delicious Eastern European cakes and cookies( usually without a recipe). I am now the designated baker in the family so this would be my joy.
    Thank you!!!

    1. Thanks for the chance! My sister Anne made the cake on the cover for her son’s girlfriends birthday. It was beautiful and I got a big piece and it was delicious!

  7. I don’t have your cookbook but I did gift it to a friend. I’ve made the Pavlova 2 times with great success and ooh’s and ash’s because of your great directions.

    1. Plum cake! When you declare a recipe your favorite, I just had to try it. What a winner!

    2. When I see your book at my local Resturant, I always stop to look through it. Love looking at the pictures, dream of baking a beautiful dessert of art for friend. However not courageous enough to take the next step—but still dreaming Thanking for sharing your gift and talent

  8. You create THE MOST beautiful bakes! I made the scrumptious tutu pavlova for our Easter dessert and your amazing cover cake will be on the Thanksgiving dessert spread. Thank you for all of the inspiration!
    ♥️

  9. I checked out a copy of your book from my library recently but I’m maxed out in renewals and will have to return it soon. Would love to win my own copy!!

    1. I love following your posts and seeing the amazing cakes that result. It would be so amazing to have your book to add to by baking library. So excited for the chance to finally get a copy!

  10. I just checked out your book from my library two days ago! I follow you on IG and watch your shows on Magnolia Network. You are so charming and inspiring. I would love to win a copy of your book!

  11. We love cake in this house. Maybe too much. Is that possible??? I’m excited to see your book, and bake some masterpieces! Thank you for the opportunity to win a copy.

  12. I do not have your book yet but I fawn over it every time I see it in person. I don’t know which recipe I would try first but i know they would all be fabulous. I made your Guinness cake this year and it was a huge hit at my house. I also make your butterscotch pot de crème often. I cal it “burnt sugar pot de crème” because it tastes exactly like a burnt sugar frosting my grandma used to make when I was a kid and it was my fave. Thanks for bringing the Twin Cities to Magnolia!

  13. I don’t have your book yet, but am dying to!!! All of your cakes are works of art. I love collecting cookbooks and cooking my way through them, and I would love to add yours to the shelf. ❤️

  14. I recently bought your “Zoe Bakes Cake” and I love it. Twice now I’ve made the Sticky Toffee Date cake which is a big hit! Also love the Ultimate Carrot Cake. The Lemon Curd Pound cake, Pavlova, and Black Forest cakes are on my list to make soon. Yum!

    1. The smore cake looks so much fun! It would be the 1st cake I’d make if I win your lovely book! ❤️

  15. I would love to make That strawberry passion fruit sheet cake
    Oh and I love your show. I live in Bloomington, MN
    Thanks Again
    Lee

  16. I borrowed your book from the library and would love a copy of my own! I made your devils food cake for my birthday cake and it’s now my favorite chocolate cake! I can’t wait to try more cakes 🙂 I have always wanted to make a pavlova, so that would be next on my list!

  17. I don’t have your book yet, but will certainly treat myself if I don’t happen to win a copy in your giveaway! I recently focused my baking efforts on cake baking, and am enjoying myself tremendously! Your creations are so beautiful and inspiring. I’m hard pressed to pick a favorite cake to start with just yet…

    1. I’d love to win a copy of this book and make some beautiful desserts for upcoming summer parties!

    1. So excited about this! I do not have this book, but it’s on a gift list for me! I would probably choose something chocolate. Always my favorite.

    Since I am my family’s’ birthdays & other occasions designated baker, I would love to make all of your recipes in ur book throughout the year. With my brother in law’s birthday coming up next, I would love to make your Black Forest cake for him as it’s his favorite.
    Thank you for this giveaway!

  20. I love your show!! I can’t wait to bake the chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream!! I look forward to reading the cookbook cover to cover!!

  21. I do have and love your book. For many, many months I tried to make something new until I hit the Pavlova! How do I love that recipe? Let me count the ways: as a full blown delight, as little individual ones, as a pie (as in your angel pie), and repeat! My daughter, Hannah, is a mini baking me and I would love to give her an autographed copy of your book for her birthday in August. Last year I gave her your bread baking book. I am happy to buy the book if there is some way you would autograph it to her. I am equally happy to win a copy if my name is drawn out of a hat!

    1. I love your recipes, and I also watch on Discovery. Love that you live in Minnesota, because my son lives there. I want to share my love of baking with my granddaughter.

  22. Hi!
    I would love to win! I don’t have the book and it’s one I would love a hard copy of to look at your beautiful pictures. I would bake for my son and coworkers! We love your blueberry muffins brownies sweet potato pie ( the purple was a huge hit!) pavlova ! Everything!

  23. Checked your book out of our local library (twice!!) I’m simple – the chocolate devils food cake was simply delicious ❤️

    1. Hello,
      Look forward to winning the cookbook.
      I watch you on Magnolia, and always enjoy.
      I would love to try several cakes.

  24. I have absolutely adored you making your baked creations! Funny thing is that I have made my twin daughters to watch multiple of your videos of your baked goods! I know this book would make everyone in our family ever so happy!

  25. Fingers and toes crossed I win this beautiful book’! I am so happy your new season is coming out this month! Love your show!

  26. No in possession of you book yet, but marvel at the beauty of each creation AND had the chance tomake and share your pavlova over this past Xmas. Was a showstopper in terms of prez and flavor. I riffed a little by adding a little rose water to the meringue. I’m big into sharing and community when it comes to food, so I’d bake for family, coworkers, my volunteer organizations, friends, neighbors!

  27. Oh how I love to watch you concoct such beautiful creations on IG! I don’t yet have your book, but I’m inspired to make that passion fruit pavlova!

    1. I bought your bread book after watching your show. How much fun it is to have fresh bread at the ready. Thank you! I have watched you make Pavlov more times than I want to admit. Your book would provide me with all I need to bake it

  28. I do not have your book but whatever the cake is on the cover just ticks all the boxes! I have a friend who has a birthday in summer and her favorite is s’mores! Would love to be able to present her with your cover cake. I’m sure she would swoon!

  29. It is a hard choise… which cake I would bake first…
    Pavolva?

  39. I have the book and I think it’s my favourite cookbook yet. It’s so beautiful and the instructions are well written; plus the photos..?! Stunning!
    My fave recipe so far is the marble pound cake. I’ve made it a few times and it’s so simple and so delicious; perfect for any occasion really.

  40. I’ve only made the lemon curd pound cake, and it was amazing! A real crowd pleaser. I told my husband that all I wanted for Mother’s Day was some time to bake a cake! Two small kids it’s hard to find the time lately for baking. Planning on the hazelnut brown butter cake and I’m excited!

  41. I do not have your beautiful book, but would LOVE to own it! I’d bake Boston Cream Pie first for my family who loves home-baked treats. My son is leaving for college this summer and would love to bake as much as possible before his departure. Thanks for the giveaway!

  49. Absolutely Love your creations and always wanted to try the Pavlova cakes myself can’t wait to see who wins❤️

  57. I don’t have your book yet but I’d love to make something for my mom from it! We both love your show and we’ve been loving talking about your recipes together. Your master bread recipe has become a staple in our houses. I think the first thing we would make together would be the lemon curd loaf. We’ve been talking about it for mother’s day!

  58. I love you and your show and everything you make looks amazing! I do not have this cookbook but would love to have it and I think my first order of business would be that plum cake. Fruit always wins out over chocolate for me.

  59. Zoe, you are such a delightful person to follow on Instagram! Thank you for sharing your fabulous recipes and joy of baking. Your posts always make me smile – and start heading to the kitchen to preheat the oven! Here at our house, anything chocolate rules, and your Devils Food cake is our favorite. As you say, happy baking!!

  60. It’s way to hard to pick just one, but my husband says it has to be the one I cooked for his Birthday = Chocolate Devil’s Food Cake! Have followed you for a long time and love your recipes and usually have requests for the recipe – like the individual tiramisu and the bullseye cheesecake (which I am going to help my daughter in law make her first cheesecake for our son’s birthday.) Thanks for them all,

    Sharon

    1. I don’t have your book yet, but anything with chocolate will be at the top of my list! My birthday is May 16th–receiving your book would be a dream. Bake on. Everything in moderation including moderation.

  61. I found you on magnolia network and I love that you are down to earth. Commenting from sunny Jamaica although you said USA shipping I have a address there so I hope I can get one of your books for it will be a treat. Love reading recipe books

  62. I’ve been salivating over your content for the past year while at the end of my pregnancy and having my baby! I can’t wait for my kiddo to get onto a sleep program so I can get back into baking, making some of your delish treats while he naps! Would love love love a copy! ❤️

  63. I don’t have the book yet but am dying to up my cake game and bake for my loved ones (also myself!). I’d love to learn more about oil based cakes, like chiffon.

  64. I don’t have your book but would love to win a copy. Pound cakes are my favorite so that would be the choice.

    Fingers crossed!

  65. I do not have your book but would love a signed copy. The recipes (and the photography) look wonderful. I love sweets so picking what I would try first is tough. My husband loves a good pound cake and I love chocolate so I will have many new desserts to try.

  66. I have been following you on Magnolia Channel since it’s inception. Hope you do a season 2 real soon! I love to watch you bake and you make everything look so easy, that it inspires me to go outside my box. Thanks for being such an inspiration! I would certainly like to try your Pavlova!

    If I am lucky enough to receive a book, I will make my husband so happy baking away!!!

  71. I love your book. The first recipe I tried was the plum cake. I made it for a work birthday party. It was delicious, everyone loved it. I’m going to make the yellow cake for my sisters 75th birthday. I’ve never been so excited to bake!!’

  72. One of the best things a baker enjoys is having your family and friends who love to eat the sweetness of puffy whipped whites or the richness of deep dark chocolate cakes. I find your artistic flare of goodies a real talent and a source of making people very happy. Those two things are what makes making all about. I would love to have your book to add to my collection. Thank you Pearl

    1. It’s a toss up between the stores and the chocolate peanut butter cake. So much chocolate-tey goodness

  73. Oh how I’d love a signed copy of this cookbook that’s tops on my wishlist. I’ve baked so many of your recipes from the website. Blueberry muffins, shortbread and of course 5 minutes a day bread are favorites for me! Can’t wait for new episodes of your inspirational show!!

  74. I have been a follower of you on the Magnolia network. I love your recipes! They are totally awesome and your love of cooking shows. I can’t wait to try your recipe for Sticky Toffee Date cake. This takes me back to when I was little when my mom made me a toffee date cake.

  75. Ooooh the Vegan Ultimate Vanilla Cake looks amazing! But how could I ever decide? I think it’s time to start baking—let’s have cake for dinner!

  76. I love this cookbook! My husband bought this for me last Mother’s Day! I used your confetti cake recipe for my daughters first birthday, the pavlova for Father’s Day, and most recently the diva cake recipe for Easter! I’m already planning to make the beehive cake for my daughters second birthday! I am a beginner baker and I’ve already learned so much from reading your book and you’ve made baking so much more approachable for someone like me! Even if I don’t win the signed copy I just wanted to let you know how much I’ve enjoyed baking your recipes for my family!

  77. Hi Zoe! I do not have your book and would LOVE to have it. I’m trying to pursue a career in baking since it has been my long time passion. Learning from professionals like you motivates and inspires me.
    What would I bake first??? Probably something chocolate…
    Thanks for sharing your knowledge with so much love

  78. Love your Instagram and show! Do not have your book yet, but looking forward to adding it to my collection!

  79. I don’t have the book yet but I have made the zucchini chocolate cake. Yum! I used gluten free flour and it was really good. I had it for breakfast because the zucchini makes it healthy You are such a great teacher! Makes me want to try new things. Thanks Zoe!

  80. I’d love to get a copy if thus beautiful book! I think I’d make the Black Forest Cake first…or maybe start with the first recipe and work my way through! ☺️

  81. I would love to win this beautiful book! My son already baked your carrot cake. It was fantastic! If I win I’d start with the hot chocolate cake then work my way through the rest! It’s my birthday this Friday so that would be my dream gift, I loved your show, I watched it while recovering from breast cancer surgery and it inspired me!

  82. Just love all your posts! Would love to have your book!
    Keep baking & thank you for sharing your magic with us! ❤️❤️❤️

  83. The Apple Cake with Honey-Bourbon Glaze sounds delicious. But I just bought a new Bundt pan and I’m itching to try it out. So that’ll be my first order of business.

  84. I don’t have your book yet but i’ve been following along and seeing all of your instagram posts. You never fail to spark my appetite and my drive to bake. I’ve tried to remake a few of your recipes and can say they did not look like yours haha.

  85. I just recently discovered your show and just love it. I can’t wait to get my hands on thwt book so I can make your angel pie.

  86. The vanilla bean pound cake! I’ve been such a fan of your blog for so long and I’m excited for your book!

  87. I would love a copy of your book!!! The first thing I would like to bake is your Apple Cake. I can’t wait to try making all of your treats!

  88. What a great gift! I don’t have your book yet but I LVE your show! My favorite show thus far is the one with your sweet Dad and making him that beautiful honey bee cake. Happy baking!

  89. I recently discovered you and truly enjoy your show and teaching approach. Vanilla bean cake would be my first recipe to try. I love that you bake pies and have neighbors over, such a great way to connect.

  90. I have watched you since day 1!!!!! Love your personality and how you love cooking and people! I love how you just do all things with joy!! Your recipes are scrumptious! Please, please, please honor me with a free cookbook to add to my collection! Enjoy your day with family, cooking and friends!

  91. It’s a toss up between the stores and the chocolate peanut butter cake. So much chocolate-tey goodness

  92. I have followed you for awhile! I made the chocolate cake (GF) with the marshmallows on top for a fundraiser right before the pandemic hit. It was such a treat for the people who didn’t expect to see GF cake.

  93. Hi Zoe!
    I bought this book last December after seeing that amazing looking “stand up” Bûche de Noel on your Instagram page. What an outstanding cake that is! (And I’ve made my share of Bûche de Noel’s). Not only impressive in presentation, it is absolutely delicious!

    Then my 4 year old grandson was checking out your book and came upon the sprinkle cake… which he promptly called his Birthday Cake… so I made that next. Another big hit!

    Then, at my daughter’s, I made the Pavlova for the family Sader…. Seems i’m 3 for 3 in the dessert success department!

    Your instructions are easy to follow and the baking academy “extras” are truly insightful. So, last night I tackled Italian meringue to make the Angel Pie you featured on Instagram… wow! Is that a fun dessert. I made Lime curd instead of lemon and yikes!! Another level of curd!

    Thank you Zoe! I truly adore your book… it has made an impact in my life that is very appreciated by my friends and family.

  94. Loved the carrot cake recipe! Also wondering what blowtorch was used in the demo for this on instagram

  95. Hi! I do not have this book yet and would love to get a copy of it! What would I make first….,that’s a tough question, but probably the Carrot Cake recipe as I love a good carrot cake. There’s lot of recipes that get it wrong but I’m confident you would get it right. I’m looking forward to trying it out! I love watching your show in Magnolia Network and soooo thrilled you season 2 is finally coming out!

  96. I would love to bake one of your cakes for my family. I just recently came across your show a few months ago. Fan every since!

    I do not have a copy of the book but, I’d love to make a special cake for my husband’s 30th birthday!!

  125. I’ve been borrowing your book from the library, my favorite favorite has been the Marbled Pound Cake but I’ve loved everything I’ve made so far!

  126. I’d like to try making any of your meringue topped desserts—the esthetic is so fresh and unique!

  127. I love your personality. It’s expressed in everything you make! I would love to win your book!

  129. Fell in love with your show and I have wanted to get a copy of your book. Winning a signed copy would be even more awesome. It would be…the icing on the cake! Love your stuff!

  130. Oooooh a new book!!! Yay! Congratulations! I need to make that sprinkle cake. It’s soooo fun!
    Keep up the good work!

  131. I would love a copy!! I am intrigued by your candied carrots, but if I am being honest, I would make Grandma Ellen’s Rum cake first. Because 1. Grandmas, and 2. Rum. I am a long time subscriber.

  132. The Lemon Curd Pound Cake sounds wonderful!
    I would make it for a slice to myself then give away the rest. I love sharing food!

  133. I already own the digital version but would love a physical copy. The pavlova recipe is the BEST and I can’t wait to keep baking my way through it. 🙂

  134. OMG, you are the pastry queen. I made your lime tart to rave reviews twice in the past month. Love your show and if I win your book, I’ll work my way through the entire tome. Impossible to foretell the recipe I will start with.

  135. I have loved following you on IG for years- and as much as I do love cake, I’d probably start with the banana bread w/ Nutella swirl. We always have extra ripe bananas to use up and I can eat banana bread any time of day~ breakfast, snack, dessert So happy for your book launch and can’t wait to try these amazing recipes!

  136. I may just have to bake the cake on the cover purely for the excuse to use a kitchen torch! We bought one a few years ago and my husband loves any excuse to use it, so marshmallows on top of a cake sounds like a pretty great excuse!

  137. I’d love to make your pavlova or the spectacular Baked Alaska! It all looks amazing and I’d love to win your book 🙂

  138. My birthday’s this month… So if I win a copy, I’ll give it to my cake-baker-daughter so she can bake us one of your scrumptious recipes, zoe!!

Yours looks amazing and it is on my new try list.

    Thank you for being you.

    Happy Mother’s Day

  154. I’ve had your book in my Amazon cart forever!

    Owning a copy might just be the inspiration I need to get back baking.
    Your IG is just stunning. It’s one of my faves. I saw a gorgeous photo of a rectangle chocolate cake with more chocolate shavings on the top. I would definitely bake something chocolate out of your book.
    Thanks for hosting this fun giveaway!

Since then I got your book from the library and I was hooked after making the blackberry diva cake – WOW – a stunner and delicious! I’m in the process of making 7 Boston cream pie cakes for my son’s graduation party – can’t wait to eat these (I tested your yellow cake recipe and love the texture, flavor and rise). I LOVE this book!

  166. I would love to make that sprinkle cake! It looks amazing! I started following you from reading an article in a magazine in my doctor’s office about your pavlova. I definitely want to try making that too!

    Shelley

  191. I don’t own your book yet but I did have it out from the library. Had to return it and get on the loooong waiting list again. Not sure what I would bake, but it would be for my wonderful husband!

  192. A friend and I bake “together” once a month. She lives about 300 miles from me so we do it virtually. If I win this book, I’ll then buy her a copy and send it to her so that the two of us can bake the same cake on the same day and commiserate about our experience and flavors. This would be such fun for us since with Covid-19 still out there, both of us are still very careful regarding our social interactions.

  193. My new favorite cake is your plum cake… Ah. May. Zing!! Life-changing! Can’t wait for plums to be back in season to indulge again. Meanwhile, I’ll try some others from this gorgeous book. Thank you, Zoe!

  194. Hi Zoe,
    I have a daughter who is due to have her second baby in August. She is having serious sweets cravings, so I plan on baking her and her husband a cake to celebrate the coming of our second grandchild!

  195. I would love to try the lemon curd pound cake. I love watching your show and I can’t wait until you return with new shows for your second season.

  196. While I have several of the Bread in Five books and lobes the instastories, I don’t have the Zoe Bakes Cakes book. Would love to win a signed copy!

  197. Love your show on Magnolia. Hope to bake the Pavlova or any of the gorgeous meringue desserts. Your creations inspire me.

  198. The cover photo with the toasted marshmallows. It looks amazing! I think my family would love it.

  199. Love your show which gives a great deal of information on why you do the processes you do in execution of recipes. Plus the background on supplies and what you’re looking in quality ingredients. My only wish is having it be a daily show instead of weekly…LOL

  200. I saw this book at my sisters last month; it looks fabulous! I would love this! She made the victory sponge cake; I would love to recreate it!

  201. I have been a follower since you were interviewed on Bake From Scratch. I would love to be the lucky girl who gets picked! I would bake for my husband, my friends and my chiropractor’s office. Thank you for always inspiring and teaching me to become a better baker!

  202. I don’t know what any of the cake recipes are in the book but the Chocolate cake on the Front cover looks so delicious that I would definitely want to make it for my family!

  203. Well I’ve been away from Mpls for 30+ years but looking at the photo of you on this page if I saw you in an airport anywhere in the world I’d recognize a “Minnesota” girl! Hopefully that means if I move to Paris you’ll see me as “French”! Cooks from MN and France may not be quite the same in ingredients or skills but they are both great!

  204. Oh my gosh, this would make the most incredible Mother’s Day gift…to myself! My boys are 2&3 years old so I can always have them wrap it for momma:) We adore baking together! They are getting really good at cracking eggs and measuring ingredients. Just like I baked with my Grammy growing up. It’s such a gift of time spent together!

  205. I really want to try making the angel food cake! I grew up with my mom making it from a box and I’ve never attempted one myself (either from scratch or from a box – haha). The idea of that light fluffiness brings back childhood memories and it would be lovely to create a real version in my own kitchen – and then to share, of course!
    Thank you for the giveaway!

  206. “A party without a cake is just a meeting.” This book is a party! I’d love to win a copy to keep and share with loved ones. Thanks!

  245. I just finished reading through your cookbook and I absolutely love all the extra information you give on the science of baking and how to be successful. As a long time baker, I knew a lot of it, but some tips were new to me. I’m excited to have a resource for my kids who love to bake! I have made your plum cake and it is divine! I’m looking forward to trying out all the recipes. Thanks for putting your heart and soul into that book!

  246. Your cakes and desserts always look AMAZING!!!!! YUM!!!

    The Tahini Halva Diva Cake for Passover is a stunner. I’d try to make that. And the Frozen Passion Fruit Souffle looks incredible, too!!

  250. I have not purchased the book yet but have it in my wish list. You have so many things I’d like to make but feel like my first thing will be the flavor of lemon! It is my favorite cake flavor (chocolate is a very close second). I subscribe to your newsletter and can’t wait for your new season to be on the air. I truly enjoy your show and wish it was a daily broadcast.

  251. I have recently discovered your show and absolutely LOVE it. I also love and have baked your Artisian breads.

  253. I would love a copy of your book!! I love making your recipes and telling friends about your work.

  254. I discovered you recently on the new Magnolia channel and LOVE your show!! I love your gorgeous home, too! You have a relaxed, easy way of approaching baking all while educating us so well on the process and little tips including why ingredients behave as they do, etc. I also love how you seek out only the best organic ingredients and introduce us to your local community. I especially enjoyed seeing the episode featuring an array of honey flavors from beekeepers, the apple orchards, your son and his college friends’ requests for personalized brownies, your best friend’s anniversary cake with white roses tinged in a blush of pink, and so much more! You have inspired me to explore my baking skills beyond my usual favorite cakes. Fabulous!!

  255. Zoe you are my inspiration for great tasting and looking masterpieces pieces of Cake! From simple to complex, wow. I would love to bake like you and would love your cookbook. Even if I do not win, I am in!

  256. I gave a copy to my stepson, who is a fledgling baker, and he loves it! I’d love to win a copy for myself. Such a gorgeous book, with wonderful recipes.

  257. I don’t have your book yet so would love to win a copy! I would probably flip right to the chocolate cake recipes, I have never tried Vahlrona chocolate so I’m sure that would be delicious. I absolutely LOVE your show on Magnolia Network, I have learned so much. I really hope I win! ♥️

  258. I really enjoyed watching your shows on the Magnolia Channel & look forward to watching you next season also.

I I never get tired of being in the kitchen except that I need an elf to follow behind me and clean up after me.

  262. I would so love to win a copy of your cookbook since I don’t own one. Thank you for the opportunity of this most generous giveaway. Your cakes are immensely sensual and gorgeous, the recipes are incredibly written, and your commentaries give such depth to the etiology of your creations. It’s a difficult choice but I believe the first recipe I’d bake would be your awesome Hot Chocolate Layer Cake, followed by the delectable Best-Ever Homemade Carrot Cake. Not long thereafter, I’d be compelled to make the Mocha Chip Cookie. I enjoy receiving your newsletters and wish that I were able to watch your show but I don’t subscribe to Magnolia.

  263. I love your show and would love to have a copy of your book! My husband absolutely loves cake, so I would be trying your recipes for him to enjoy!

  264. I would make for my family the devil’s food first and then the angel food just to see which one we like best…although I pretty much know that devil’s food always wins.

  265. I love making cakes! I’ve looked at your book, loved it, but still don’t own it yet. Maybe this may be my chance.

  270. Ive already made a few of you cakes. The carrot cake is out of this world but the coconut cake is not far behind. It is so moist. All the recipes come out great and the cakes are so well balanced, is a pleasure to make them a lbs more so to eat it

  274. Would love a signed copy! Been trying to perfect my meringue topping and yours always look so picture perfect 🙂

  278. We love the stone fruit cake (made with peaches) & all the variations we’ve made with the hot chocolate base. Everything has been amazing!!

  285. I would love to have a copy of your anazing book! My 16 year old granddaughter, who wants to be a pastry chef, and I have been baking together since she was four. We have a special bond throught our combined love of baking and love to try out new recipes. Your book would be a pleasure for both of us.

  286. Zoë, you bring so much joy to baking and your passion is contagious! I have your book and there are so many greats! Really want to try the cover one! I mean those marshmallows!

  287. Zoe, I would love having a copy of your new cookbook! I made your Devil’s Food Cake with Swiss Meringue Icing and Cherry Preserve Filling for my niece’s 18th birthday in January.

  289. I can’t win, because I don’t live in the USA (I am from Italy) but I am commenting because I ADORE this book! Probably my favorite cake so far is the Pavlova roulade. It is versatile and a looker. If I would have won it I would have given to my best friend; I guess I’ll buy it for her.

  290. I have been wanting a copy of Zoe Bakes Cakes since it came out! I already subscribe to your newsletter and since I don’t have the book yet, I can’t say which cake I’d make first.

I would love the have a copy of your book so that I can have a home for all your recipes in one place! Your recipes are always so visually appetizing and you have the kindest personality. My favourite recipe so far is your pavlova, but I could not just choose one!!

  304. I would be very happy if I win the book. I coud bake nice cakes for my 4 children on their birthday and I hope for my future grandchildren as well. As you don’t ship international: My son is studying in the USA and could bring it to me in June for when he has a summer break at university

  310. Your marble cake is out of this world! Can’t wait to try my hands at more of your recipes!

  311. I would love to try the blood orange creamsicle semifreddo. It seems to be such an explosion of flavours, the honey, orange and to top it off, the rosemary!!! It won’t be for my mother because it’s been 21 years since she has died. It would be in honour of her because she introduced me to baking and I have such fond memories of time spent in the kitchen with her.

  312. I love your recipes and have had your book in my cart several times to buy and then don’t follow through because we are remodeling my kitchen in my new house where I will retire at the end of the year after working at least 50 hours a week and often way more for too many years to count . I will finally have time to bake! But have to save my pennies right now .

  313. I made the cake on the cover for my nephews wedding. It was beautiful and delicious! Everyone loved it.

  317. I would be so happy to win a signed copy of your book! I’ve currently got it on my “wish list”, but a signed copy would be the “icing” on the cake! (wink, wink). I’ve recorded watched and SAVED every episode of your show on Magnolia Network, they’re fabulous and so are you!

  318. Zoe…I love you! You are so fun to watch bake and kind enough to be real and share your love of baking for everyone no matter their skill level. I look forward to baking anything peanut butter from your book…that is our favorite. Hope I win one of your giveaways .

  319. I’ve just recently started watching your shows on the Magnolia network. Now I’m hooked. Love baking and learning new techniques. Have learned so much watching you.

  320. I would love to win. Enjoyed season 1 and learned alot. My favorite things you bake are the brownies and bundt cakes.

    It would be lovely to win your book. Thank you for the opportunity.

  327. I would absolutely love to win this book! My sister and I have watched your shows over and over. We’ve made cakes, cookies….by slamming down the cookie tray (brilliant)….and keep a bucket of bread dough on the ready in the fridge! Thank you, Zoë, for all you do!!

  334. I have your book and the Chocolate Devils Cake recipe is outstanding!!! If I win I’ll gift the unsigned copy to my niece. She’s my fellow advid baker. Thanks for the opportunity.

  335. I would love to win your book, Zoe Bakes Cake! My friend has one and each of the pictures shows such a wonderful creation.

  336. It’s so hard to pick a favorite recipe from your book! I have made the vanilla cake with caramel buttercream for my fellow nurses on Valentine’s Day, and I just made the red velvet last week for my mom’s husband! The cream cheese frosting was to die for- not overly sweet just perfect!

  337. I would love to win a signed copy of your book. I have made your banana bread and the chocolate zucchini bread recipes and love them both!

  338. I have always celebrated my families’ special occasions by baking them something special, and with your new cookbook I’m sure I can take my baking to another level. Thank you for the chance to win a signed “Zoe Bakes”.

  339. I would love to win a copy of your book. I have your book about baking artisan bread and it’s amazing.

  340. Unfortunately I don’t have this book yet in my cookbook collection, but That white rainbow sprinkle cake looks like it would be perfect to make for my firstborn’s birthday! He passed away 5 days after he was born, but every year we celebrate his birthday with cake and blow out candles for him (I even took a cake decorating class the first year he was gone to learn how to do a good one for him). He would be 9 this year and I think he’d love something fun like a white sprinkle-covered cake. Thanks for the chance!

  341. I love your breads, and have your book which has kept me busy for weeks baking all kinds of delicious breads ! I would love to try the Japanese cotton cheesecake first. I can’t wait. to start baking your cakes. Your Magnolia Network show is something I look forward to seeing soon.

  342. To the always-inspiring Zoe,
    Your recent post on Angel Pie brought what I thought was an old-fashioned, almost-forgotten recipe into present day ‘make this cool recipe’! Thanks for giving us a can-do spirit in our kitchens.

  343. I took your course on Craftsy. I want to learn all i can about baking wonderful, creative, loving things for my family.

  344. I am excited to make the Black Forest cake, like most of Zoe’s recipes it looks simple yet elegant

  345. I would love, love, love to win a copy of your cookbook! I checked it out from my local library, and it did not disappoint! I love your cooking show

  346. Zoë! I trust your baking gut and would bake any recipe you write! My husband loves interesting flavors, so the first recipe I bake would probably include a unique flavor I don’t normally use in my baking.

  347. I enjoy making zoe’s recipes. The recipes are well written, easy to follow, but most of all taste amazing!

  348. Your cakes are so beautiful. I don’t have the book yet, but I would love to make one of yours for my dad and sisters.

  349. Leon curd pound cake is so delectable and refreshing for spring. If I win a signed copy I will give my unsigned copy to my budding baker daughter. Love your show, can’t wait for more episodes. I’ve watched each one at least 4-5 times.

  350. I have borrowed this book from the library 3x! I own Holiday Artisan Bread in 5 Min Day and I love your recipes, stories and techniques. It would be great to add this to my collection. So Hard to say what is my fave recipe but I have to go with the chocolate peanut butter cake

  351. Oh my goodness, I can’t even imagine which recipe I’d start with! I’ve been following your blog for years, and I was so excited when you got your show. My two little girls and I watch it together. I think we’ve seen the pie episode literally 10 times! I finally mastered pie crust thanks to you.

  352. I’ve been following you on Instagram for some time. Everything you bake looks scrumptious so since I love to bake I’d try just about any of your recipes!!

  353. I will be creating birthday cakes for my granddaughters this summer and would love to be inspired by your book!

  354. I’ve not made any of your cake recipes .. yet! I need more cake in my life and would love to win your book. I’ve tried a homemade angel food cake once in my life and it ended up looking like a flat tire. So if you have an Angel Food Cake Recipe, I’d like to try your instructions.

  355. If I were to get my hands on a copy of your book I would RUSH to the kitchen and make the Chocolate Devils Food Cake. Nothing beats chocolate in my opinion. There can never be too much chocolate in one’s life. Yum.

  356. So many good recipes. But the Pavlova is stunning! I love the versatility of changing up the look and flavor by changing up the fruit to match the season. So good!

  357. Zoe, love your blueberry muffin recipe I have also been making breads from your book that I bought and they are wonderful. Happy for you and your success.
    Paula

  358. Oh how exciting! The first thing I would make is the lemon curd pound cake as they are both my husband’s favorite and it is something that can easily be shared with our neighbor who is going through chemo.

  359. I would love to win a copy of your book. Thanks for the chance to win. P.s. love watching you make all those wonderful recipes.

  360. Yay, Zoë! I’d bake the crap out of that chocolate zucchini cake. It’s one of my faves and a savior in the summer when my garden is booming.

  363. I would love to have a copy of your book to bake in your style for my family’s special days and any days.

  364. Love your books and TV show. You are the reason I’m learning to make bread. You make it look so easy. I’m not there yet…but, I keep trying

  365. Hi Zoe! I absolutely love your recipes! I am a cake decorator and love baking!
    Thanks for all your hard work in sending out your newsletters and doing your show. It’s such an inspiration.
    Best Regards
    Meredith

  366. Hi Zoe,
    My first bake would be your Black Forest Cake, because I love the combination of those flavors. I was in graduate school when I attended a birthday party and a Black Forest Cake was served. I had never heard of it, and when I took a bite, I thought it was the best slice of cake I’d ever tasted!

  367. Hi Zoe! I love your show on the Magnolia Network. You make baking a pleasure!
    I have made your chocolate zucchini bread to rave results! I would love to attempt your Honey Beehive Cake.

  368. I’d love to win a copy of Zoe’s book! I once took a class from her and even though I’m not the best baker, Zoe made me feel confident and empowered.

  369. As a working Mom looking to a near-future transition in life (adult daughters, possible retirement??) I would love to finally, finally, finally devote time to baking without having time limitations. It would be such a delight to have your amazing book *and signature* so that I could start a new realm of enjoying creative baking and have fun with this new opportunity. Thanks so much.

  370. I have the cookbook on hold at my library! Very excited to read it – even better if I win a copy and don’t have to wait for the library. I have been teaching my kids to bake and would let them pick which cake to make first.

  371. I love your book—anything I bake from it makes me feel like an artist. If a won a copy, I would gift your book to my daughter (who inherited my love of baking) because she would appreciate your signature as much as the recipes, and my two grandkids would drool over the photos! I bet they would want to make that Hot Chocolate Cake first.
    I love your Deep Dives. Thanks so much for sharing your artistry in such accessible ways and for a chance to win your stunning book!

  372. Love watching you show on Magnolia Network. Looking forward to the new season. Have tried your bread recipes, looking forward to trying some new cake recipes!

  373. I’m not 100% sure which cake I want to bake yet, but last year for my daughter’s first birthday I ordered cakes for her party and this year I thought it would be special to make one for her. Maybe the one covered in sprinkles! 🙂

  374. Even my husband watches your show with me. He loves the treats you make as well as I do. Drool worthy for sure.

  375. I want to work my way through all of the cakes in the book – your creations are all so tasty and beautiful! I don’t have the book yet, so I hope I win!

  376. I love watching your show! I made your Blueberry muffins and OH MY!!! They were so far beyond delicious, I ended up making 3 batches in 2 days. These are my new go to “friend in need” gift!
    Thank you for sharing your knowledge and talent for baking

  377. I have devoured every episode of Zoë Bakes. You are such an inspiration! I would love to win a copy of Zoë Bakes Cakes. Thanks for the opportunity.

  378. I have a copy of your book and love the White Cake recipe, mostly because my grandchildren love the confetti and all things chocolate! My sister and I have a “me, too” relationship. One of us gets something and the other says, “Me, too!” It would be wonderful to get a copy to give her so she can enjoy making from your cookbook as much as I do! Thanks for the opportunity!

  379. I would love to win a copy to gift to my teen daughter. She enjoys baking and we think you are the bee’s knees when it come to all things with sugar and spice and everything nice. We have made your devil’s food cake and it’s our go to recipe. Would love to attempt your pavlova but egg whites scare me.

  380. I absolutely love your book! My husband declared the chocolate devil’s food cake the best cake I have ever made:) My son’s favorite is the carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. The “Cake Academy” section is a must-read — it is so helpful!!

  381. I’ve been an admirer since the Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes came out and to this day I still make bread using that recipe and method. There’s nothing like the smell of bread baking and fresh bread. Or taste.
    This book would be the perfect addition to my baking books collection, even though my husband thinks I have too many. Never enough. Thanks Zoe and I love your show on Magnolia Network.

  382. I don’t have your book but the cakes look so delicious! Thank you for the chance to win. I love your show and Can’t wait for season 2!

  383. My 15 year old granddaughter has a cake business and I would love to win the book to give to her! Your show is amazing and I am inspired by everything you bake!

  384. I have been wanting your cookbook for a while now! The Chocolate Pavlova looks amazing, and I have always wanted to try making one. My 4 year old daughter and I love trying out recipes that we watch on cooking shows, and we would love to make some of your recipes! Thanks!

  385. I’ve been a fan since the first abin5 book – your cakes are beautiful and yummy! Thanks for the giveaway!

  386. I’ve enjoyed your show on Magnolia Network and appreciate how you explain the background behind techniques! I learn so much by watching you. I look forward to getting your book.

  387. I totally enjoy your newsletter and amazing recipes. Looking forward to season 2 of your show.
