A Giveaway for a Good Cause!

Recently, I walked into our neighborhood cake supply store, NY Cake West looking for a specific cookie cutter.  I didn't get the cookie cutter, but I walked out with a bag of goodies; cupcake liners, silicon molds, a few other cookie cutters and this cool silicon mat lined with inch marks around the perimeter of the mat.

I am always struggling, even with a ruler, to cut even, clean squares whenever making bars or brownies.  I am always disappointed with the presentation.

After today, this could be the solution I have been searching for.

I want to share my joy with you!  I am giving away one of these MATS to one lucky winner!

To enter the Mat Giveaway, simply leave a comment below (one entry per person, please) and I'll pick the winner from Random.  Also, for every comment I receive, I will donate $1.00 to Share our Strength, an organization dedicated to ending childhood hunger in America! Deadline for this giveaway is Sunday, April 25th at 9:00 p.m.

If your comment isn't linked to a blog where I can find you, please leave your email in the comment box.  This giveaway is for U.S. addresses only.

Thanks so much for entering and I look forward to reading all you have to say.

I'd love one of those! I've been needing a silicone mat - one with measurements on the edge is an added bonus. I read your blog regularly, and I love your pictures and writing! I only wish I had the time to bake as much as you do!

Perfect solution to my 'rustic' brownies. Even if I don't win, I am stoked just to know about these b/c I will for sure need to invest in one!

Thanks for the giveaway! Silicon mats are great for so many things - and I'd admired yours in your brownie post. Make sure you don't use a sharp knife on it though - it cuts through the silicon to the fiberglass inside. I've heard these are also great for rolling pie crusts!
