Dowser Series: recipe card giveaway

May 24, 2016


I had six different recipe cards, all representing a different Dowser book, test baked, proofed, and printed for The Bookcon 2016. Then I shipped a bunch back from Chicago for giveaways and such. They showed up today.

I’ll probably be doing random flash giveaways with the postcards over the next few months on this blog, twitter, and Facebook but I’ll hold this one open for 36 hours so everyone gets a chance to win right away.



Would you like a set of all six recipes? To enter all you need to do is comment below and let me know:

  1. Of the six recipes featured here – Lust in a Cup, Cozy in a Cup, Sunshine in a Cup, Sass in a Cup, Buzz in a Cup, or Lift in a Cup – which cupcake are you most looking forward to baking?

Notes/Rules: OPEN INTERNATIONALLY. Each comment will be assigned an entry number. ONE winning entry will then be selected via random number generator. One entry per person. Please make sure to fill out a valid email address in the comment form. Email addresses are not collected for any purpose other than notifying the contest winner.

If you haven’t commented on the blog before, or you comment from a different IP address, the comments are moderated. So don’t worry if you don’t see your entry right away. I will approve it, then assign it an entry number.

Contest closes WEDNESDAY, MAY 25, 2016 at 8 p.m. PDT.

    Mmmmmm…. Lift in a Cup because a fluffy white cake and an energetic icing sounds like the perfect thing to get me out of this “Second Monday” funk that I’m in.

    What a pleasure it is to read your books! So many senses are involved!!! Cozy first, then Lust in a Cup, then perhaps Buzz. Ummmm……maybe a half dozen of each to sample with friends to make sure I pick my favorite!

    Sunshine in a Cup! I love lemon and citrus flavors, they taste fresh and clean!

  20. May 24, 2016 4:13 PM

    Cozy In A Cup is my first choice, although Sass is a close second.. Coffee and Mocha are not a favorite of mine but I’m sure they blend together beautifully in these recipes..

    I have tried my hand at Lust in a Cup (and it was delicious) so I think Buzz in a Cup is what I most look forward to. I’ve never had a mocha cupcake before. Enticing 😀

    Buzz in a Cup is my all time favorite. This last time I used Kahlua in the icing instead of the vanilla it calls for. Extra buzz for you! Of course do not add the Kahlua if you have children under the age of 21. That would be wrong.

    Sunshine in a cup so I make it with my niece she is pure sunshine. In truth it’s her nickname.

    Sass, because I love chocolate and blackberries but not coffee. I’ve probably made “lust in a cup” 20 times because it is so good.

  44. May 24, 2016 5:34 PM

    Oh wow, I have to pick just one? Hum, Sass in a cup. I love blackberry.

    That’s a tough one . . . I think Lust in a Cup would be the first one I would make. I don’t think you could go wrong with any of them! Sometimes I wonder what I would pick I’d I visited Cake in a Cup but them I remember its not real lol

    Lift in a Cup. I’m having a difficult week at work and could use a “lift” today.

    Ooh, I’d have to start with Lust in a Cup. Nothing like some good old fashioned lust once in a while. 🙂 Chocolate (good chocolate, anyway) makes me weak in the knees.
