We’ve been working away over here like busy little bees getting all of the details set for The Sweet Weekend & Masquerade Ball! (And if you don’t know of this exciting event happening in October, click HERE to check out the details, including which master cake and cookie artists will be demonstrating their magical ways in person at the event!)
The string quartet, the lighting and sound technicians for our surprise special show at the ball, and the dance instructors to teach us a Shakespearean-style group reel are all booked…
the table decorations (involving a bit of sparkle and a boatload of candles…’cause, what can I say? I’m a candles and sparkles kinda girl. 😉 the goody bags (filled with such GREAT stuff), the pretty packages to be mailed to the attendees, and the AMAZING prizes to be won at the ball are all set for the event!
And we are so SERIOUSLY excited for this weekend, we (k, fine…I) could pee our (my) pants!
(I know…but I’m THAT excited!)
So I just want to take a second to show you some of the INCREDIBLE prizes donated by our awesome sponsors that all ball attendees have a chance to win at the event!
It’s all such great stuff that I can just not WAIT to call out the names of the winners the night of the ball, ’cause that’s gonna be some SERIOUS fun. 😉
(And there’s so many of them that I’ll just tell you about half of them now, and then I’ll show you the rest later in a different post, so be on the lookout for part two in a few weeks!)
Ok, here we go- (some of) the prizes to be won at the ball!…
The Cake & Cookie Planner by Avalon Cakes! (There will be two of these babies to give away, actually!)
I know first hand how gorgeous this planner is as we here at Cakeheads actually teamed up with Avalon to get this beauty into production, so believe me when I say that this prize is something special!
You can check out all of the goodness that comes with this beautiful beast on the Cake & Cookie Planner website (and even order one for yourself if you don’t want to risk not winning one at the ball 😉 .)
The Original Scrapbox is donating a $1000 gift card to any product in their online store!!
I own one, and if you haven’t seen the video tour I gave of mine, let me just tell you, it is my Joy…my Preciousssssss. 😉
The Shoe Bakery, one of my most favorite shops on the PLANET, is donating two separate prizes!
The first prize package consists of a purse from their new ice cream sandwich line,
and a matching wallet, too! (SUUUR cute!)
And the second prize- one of their unicorn handbags *MEEP* and a matching unicorn card holder!
(If, of course, I don’t happen to, errr… lose these two prizes on the way to the venue or anything like that.) *AHEM* 😉
Marvelous Molds is contributing a few FABULOUS prize packages as well as some goody bag goodness to each ball attendee!
One prize package will consist of their entire collection of knit molds! Which are SOOO incredibly awesome and easy to use!
I used many of the molds from this collection to create the outfit on my klutzy snowman cake here and instantly fell in love with them.
Another prize package will include several of their new simpresses which are equally as fabulous!
I used their tufted dot simpress on the top tier of this masquerade themed cake and so very much love the effect it created!
They’re also providing a special sprinkle mix to the goody bag for each ball attendee!! YAYYY!
(Here’s a unicorn cake I had fun creating using one of their beautiful mixtures…)
Donut Eat Bakery makes such fun and beautiful cake related items to brighten up your life, and they’ve so graciously donated one of their TOTALLY awesome sprinkle racks as a prize,
and they’re also contributing a mini version of one of their gorgeous cupcake candles to each goody bag!!! Ahhhh!!!! These candles are so stinking cute, I want all ten of their flavors!!
The amazing Clairella Cakes is giving away one of her awesome airbrush systems along with a stencil bundle as a prize package!
Have you seen what you can do with her airbrush system? The gorgeousness…
Innovative Sugarworks, a brilliant cake decorating company whom I love to work with because of their superb quality cake tools, is donating a prize package including one of their AWESOME cake turntables,
one of their new sugar structures,
a pack of their beautiful brushes,
