Cake Tester Giveaway & Moo Cards

It's that time again when I raid my daughters pretty baubles and decide I should give a cake tester away, compliments (unbeknownst) of her.

Cake Testers Blis-Ranch.com


#2 daughter, one of two graphic designers in the family, started making these cake testers to help pay for gas to college.  She's graduated now but still makes them, mostly for fun and because I tell her too.  It's a drop in the bucket of the things this girl can do and I've shown you some of her talents before.
#2 Daughter
When I mention graphic designers, considering I have access to two of them, I always feel like I have to justify my lack of blog design.  Neither of them has helped me in any way put this blog together, I have done it all.  Out of six kids, the designers are the two most like me, so lets just say I get eye rolls and they use a tone I don't much like and say things like "mom, that will be dumb", if I ask for help.  So I don't ask for help!  Keeps the peace.

So anyhooo, last year, January 2013 to be exact, I won a giveaway from Cassie at Primitive and Proper.  I was so excited, but I waited till my coupon was almost expired to order anything because I didn't know what I wanted.  In the meantime #2 daughter ran out of her free business cards from Vistaprint.   

 Cassie.
Not my daughter, but she could be.

Technically the Moo cards were free too, but ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh what a difference in quality of the Moo cards.  I will order from them when next I need cards of any kind.  I don't know if they have different quality of stock they use, so this is only based on the ones I received, but let me tell you they are very nice.  I'm not getting paid to say this, no one asked me to talk about these cards, they are just THAT nice and I wanted to share that tidbit with 'ya. 

*Disclaimer....#2 daughter would not have designed her cards this way, but like I said, I don't ask for help designing stuff from the designers in the family, I just design and give away their stuff whether they like it or not!

So these cards..... double sided.  With a photo.  On smooth, firm cardstock.  I keep seeing other comments from people who have ordered from Moo and they seem to be as pleased as we are.

 They came very nicely packaged with a card holder too.

I submitted the photo and it looks great.  If you win the cake tester giveaway you will see just how nice the cards are, since I will include one with the prize.

I'm feeling very girly today, so I'm gonna give away a pink and clear cake tester like the one above.  For a chance to win, you don't have to do anything but leave a comment -  although it would be terrific if you would take a peek at Beth's Etsy shop.  She has a blog page that she uses just as a front for info, she doesn't blog, but you can read about the cake testers there.

If you don't know how lampwork beads are made, it's similar to glass blowing except you don't blow the glass you twist and turn it while you heat it.  She doesn't make her own yet, one talent at a time I guess!

They are very pretty and she makes them in all colors, just depends on her mood what she has in her Etsy shop.  Oh..... and they do work like she says they will.

Great Mothers Day gift.  Just say'n!

Giveaway open until April 16th, 2014.

  7. Since I have so many I will bow out of the giveaway but I'll tell you ladies that they are beautiful. Bliss forgot to mention their other use as a husband poker. I find mine very effective when he's moving too slow.
    I haven't used Moo Cards, but will check them out after your glowing endorsement.

  9. The cake testers are beautiful, as is your daughter. How industrious she is to help fund her way through college. It sounds like the Moo Cards are the way to go. I'll have to keep that in mind when I order more.

  10. I love the cake tester I have, so I'll let someone else win, to have one, too! And I well understand about blog design...I did all mine, too...even with a programmer/developer son and a graphic designer/artist daughter. But I sure have learned a lot doing it! Your talented daughter is so pretty, too!

  12. I don't bake cakes, but I LOVE Tina's suggestion that they be used as a husband poker! They are lovely, and I need to order one, just for decoration. ALSO, thanks for the info on the cards...I keep seeing info on them, and I will need new ones pretty soon. Maybe I can win some. And I was at Cassie's last weekend...just sayin'.

I have mine hanging on a hook in my kitchen, kind of like kitchen jewelry--too pretty to put in a drawer! I would love to win one to give as a gift to a friend who is going through a difficult time right now. She is a jewel herself!

  32. Very pretty and I'd love to win one... and I can relate to the tone and looks you get when you ask for help or suggest something to do with your blog... sadly, I still have to ask for help although I did figure out how to make myself a header... you are my hero, doing everything yourself.

  33. The cake testers are beautiful works of art. They remind me of antique hat pins, I hope to win one and display it stuck in a finished and ready to serve cake.

  57. Love them! This is the first time I've seen these delectable little cake testers. (I had to delete my other comment becuz I didn't know I was supposed to leave my e-mail. It's not fully going away so if it doesn't....that's why)

    Thanks so much!

  58. I have never heard of cake testers before, other than toothpicks. What an ingenious idea! She has some very pretty ones in her shop. I make stick pins with beads, spacers & caps but hers are quite different and look solid...like her blog says, not like stick pins. You must be very proud!
    Debbie :)
