Literate Bakes Giveaway!

*UPDATE! Everybody wins!*

Can you judge a cupcake by its cover? Indeed you can.

Last week, my friend posted this picture on Facebook.  I've been obsessed with it ever since.

These adorable treats hail from Victoria's Kitchen in West London.  So clever.  So literary.  So perfect.  Turns out, a lot of her work is.  Check out her website, complete with a picture-perfect gallery.  You can also like her on Facebook to keep up with her latest creations.

So I can't get these sweet books out of my head.  What does that look like?  Like this...

1. Could they be any more Literate Baker?
2. Why didn't I think of that?
3. These are definitely going on the Much Ado About Cake menu.
4. Literate Baker readers would love these.
5. I should make some for practice and a photo op.
6. Literate Baker readers would love to have some of these.
7. Time for a give away!

So, dear readers, what books would you like to see in sugar form?  Let me know in the comment section below.  I'll pick two winners at random and send you I'll be a nut and send everyone who enters six little sugar books for your next batch of cupcakes!

Fine print: Entries must be submitted in the comments section of this post, including at least one book title, by 11 p.m. EST on Saturday, August 25th.  Winners must have a U.S. mailing address.  Winners must follow The Literate Baker on Google, Facebook, Pinterest, or Twitter.

I can't wait to see how you...

Read it sweet.

  1. Can help it...but I'd love a Fifty Shades cupcake. Not literary enough? FINE! The Devil Wears Prada. Okay I give up, but I love cupcakes!

  2. I can't think of a better way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of A Wrinkle in Time than with these :)

  3. I'd to see mini Harry Potter books or to have Ursula Vernon's Dragonbreath books represented on cupcakes.

  4. How about the Library Dragon by Doreen Leedy? I think it would be a perfect way to brighten up the day of a librarian getting back into the school year grind.

    1. By the way, this is Katie...your bellydancer buddy.

  5. To Kill a Mockingbird or Tipping the Velvet. That one would have to be red velvet cake of course.

  6. These are beautiful! And I love that there's a Handmaid's Tale one! I'm sure yours will turn out fabulous. Given that lately I'm more Magic Tree House than Margaret Atwood, I think little Olivia (the pig) books (by Ian Falconer) would be adorable & oh so timely to celebrate a certain almost-three-year-old who LOVES Olivia and LOVES cupcakes! :-)

  7. Devil in the Junior League
    Where Do Kisses Come From?
    A collection of Bronte sisters' books

  8. I am easy, I will take whatever you would like to make. Although I had previously suggested Our Bodies, Ourselves. :)

  9. Confessions of a Shopaholic + sequels
    -Laura Lee

  10. A room of one's own by Virginia Woolf

  11. Oooohhhh, what fun! How about... The View from Saturday....or....Tale of Despereaux......or.......Tiger Rising...

  12. Make the Harry Potter books. All 6.

  13. Would love to see The Secret Garden! You could use almost any title and it would be precious....from Goodnight Moon to the Bible! :)

  14. The Shrinking of Treehorn, obviously. Sorry I shirked and missed the deadline :(
