Blog Book Tour & Giveaway Announcement!

September 03, 2013

If you haven’t yet heard, The Dollop Book of Frosting: Sweet and Savory Icings, Spreads, Meringues, and Ganaches for Dessert and Beyond official release date is September 18th, 2013! Which is this month! Can you sense my excitement? If you’ve already received a copy and read it, used it, or just looked at it as it sits on your coffee table, I would send you kisses from afar if you would swing on over to Amazon for a brief moment to share your review. Us authors, we adore reviews. Especially if you loved the book. If you hated the book I'm supposed to encourage you to review it anyways. Honest reviews only, my publisher says. This could get awkward. But now let's move on to today’s exciting announcement... On Monday September 9th I’m kicking off a bodacious Book Blog Tour! How. Exciting! I have some really amazing participating bloggers (thank you, you awesome ones!) so this is going to be a fun and informational time. Also, I’m giving away a grand prize package at the end of the tour to entice you even more to follow along. Do you really need additional enticement though? Here’s how it’s going down: On each of the tour dates listed below you’ll head on over to the blog tour stop to read that day’s post. I’ll be talking about everything from recipe background stories to sharing FREE recipes from the book to frosting tips & tricks, to personal stories and life lessons. I’ll post here on HeatherSaffer.com a reminder each day with a link to the blog I’m stopped at that day. To enter into the contest to win the grand prize package you can do one of three things (or do all 3!):
  1. Comment on THIS Post anytime from now until the end of the contest on September 19th
  2. Follow @HeatherCupcakes on Twitter and tweet me using #Dollop
  3. “Like” Dollop on Facebook and post on the Dollop wall or post on your own wall that you’re following the tour with hashtag: #Dollop.
At 3pm EST on Friday September 20th I will choose the grand prize winner and that lucky person will win all of this awesome stuff!

Tuesday, September 10th: You may have seen him as the co-host and judge on Travel Channel’s Destination Showdown. You’ve heard of Travel Channel, right? Well today I’m honored to be taking over Tony Brueski's blog, New Taste Today with a full recipe from The Dollop Book of Frosting! Swing on by to find out which recipe ;) Thursday, September 12th: He’s an author, eating disorder survivor and advocate, and yes, the brother of Mark Cuban. Today on Brian Cuban’s inspirational blog, The Cuban Revolution I’ll be sharing my personal story of how I went from a life of anorexia to a life of a cupcakes and frosting. We’re about to get deep, people. Friday, September 13th: Today I'm psyched to be stopping at Tina Haupert's awesome blog, Carrots 'n' Cake! Tina is a contributor to Health magazine, a rockin' writer, and a lover of baked goods and CrossFit. Sound a little like someone you know? ;) I so love Tina's blog and twitter feed that I just had to include her in this blog tour! I wasn't going to take no for an answer (so it's a good thing she said yes). On Carrots 'n' Cake I'll be sharing my own experiences balancing CrossFit and staying fit while writing a frosting cookbook (it was tough!) and I'll also be sharing with you a Paleo-friendly frosting recipe from The Dollop Book of Frosting! It's going to be a big day. Monday, September 16th: This is a very special Monday because this is the Monday that I am taking over Andrea's From Playground To Politics blog! Andrea is a powerhouse of authenticity and honesty both in person and throughout her blog. And that's why I'm letting her throw some interview questions my way! I've informed her to ask anything she wants so I'm pretty excited (and nervous) to see what she comes up with. Tune in to find out! Tuesday, September 17th: Today on Erin’s blog, The Spiffy Cookie, I’ll be sharing some recipe writing insights along with the recipe and back story behind one of my favorite recipes in The Dollop Book of Frosting. Erin is a baker/blogger extraordinaire who grew up right in my hometown of Rochester, NY. She no longer lives here as she’s prepping madly to defend her dissertation but when she introduced herself to me on Twitter several weeks ago I felt an immediate local connection. Let’s just say, you’re not going to want to miss this. And then on Wednesday, September 18th I'll be back here to wrap up the tour on the official release date for The Dollop Book of Frosting! Join the ride! There's frosting inside! Will you be joining the ride?
