Birthday Give Away..


Its a bit of a tradition now, that I have a Birthday Give away.
Well this year is no different. Although its a bit late.
Because its a Birthday Give Away, its a surprise as to what's in the box!
Last year it was a Bone China Bathroom Set, made by Robert Mack of Mack Fine China. Which was won by the lovely Doreen.
The year before it was a Reutter Gold Plated Porcelain Tea Set, that was won by Casey, although Tessie nabbed it.

Now the rules are:-

1. That you must be a follower of this blog, either on the blogger followers list or the networked blog list and your answer must be placed in the comments on this post only..

2. The question I'd like answering is:- I did some Baking on the 11th January. (See this post). I filled seven tins with cakes, but some didn't make it into the tins. ( I have a Hubby and Son that like cakes straight from the oven). How many individual cakes did I make? All the correct answers will go in the hat.

You have until 21st January to enter... Good Luck everyone...

MrsPitStop said...

I will go for 108 but your such a tease I could easily tuck into all of them they are making me hungry lol x

minisdecris said...

ohhhhhh¡¡ I find 134 on tins, but how many can eat a husband plus a son????My experience said about 10, so total 144¡
I know is late, but happy birthday Debbie

Mary Williams said...

What a lovely idea Debbe, I'm going for 90,

Mary x

karina content said...

I like surprises very much ;))))) ehhh 106 ? greetz karina

Caseymini said...

Debbie, since Tessie won two years ago, I doubt that I will win again, so I am just going to say a whole bunch of cakes were made! I think that I would like the recipe. They look really good!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!

Rosella said...

I think your husband and your son are very greedy.
So I say that there are 118 in the boxes and then there were 20 other desserts.
Then I think you had made 148 cakes.
Thanks for this surprice!!

Marie said...

Woooh ! I like the idea and I like the surprise , well I will go for 121 ;) Mini hugs from Belgium, Marie

Kathi said...

I'm taking a wild guess! 104 cakes?
How many of them are still not eaten? That might be a good second guess. I'm guessing there are only 34 left! LOL

WendiesMiniWorld said...

This is a great fun idea for the giveaway :o) I reckon you made 10 trays of small cakes and a giant one for the main Birthday cake? which would be 2 layers so my guess is 122 x

Lainie said...

My guess is 140! Happy late Birthday! I agree with Casey. I would love to have the recipes.
Hugs,
Lainie

The Old Maid said...

Gosh, this is hard;D I think in the tins there were around 126 or 128 cakes;) plus what the gents could eat straight from the oven, then I guess it could be 140?;D
Thanks for this give-away Debbie!

coltpixy said...

I have been getting this feed in my google reader for quite a while now and so I thought I was following this blog. I was apparently wrong and am following it now.
I say 150 cakes.

Happy birthday!

BiWuBär said...

That's a great idea for a giveaway, thank you very much - but very hard to guess... I think there are about 120 tasty cakes in the tins - so let's say you've made a total of 135. Whatever the correct answer may be, you've made a lot... ;O)

Have a great weekend!
Birgit

Sassy Marsha said...

ha ha ha, that would be me, eating them before making the tin! BOY that was a LOT of baking!! I'll say 120!

xxoo
Marsha

Mooghiscath said...

Ha ...Ha...I like surprise et I found the question funny.
So , I think 128 cakes.

cockerina said...

this is very difficult to count, but I try.
considering what I can count in the boxes, there are:
48 in total in the purple box.
18 in the blue box.
18 in the red box (because even if it is closed, it has the same capacity of the blue.
26 in the rectangular box.
14 in the pink box, even if no one can see.
Therefore, a total of 124.
I have no idea how many sweets, your men have eaten.
In addition, there is the possibility that the red tray on the left there are other desserts, but I do not know quantify!
then I say 124, from what I see, and I hope to have guessed!
many more wishes for your birthday!
This give away is too funny!
kisses, Caterina

LLyn M. said...

I'm just going to guess that you baked 132 cakes in all.Thanks for sharing you BD....was fun!!

Dark Squirrel Victoria said...

I'm going to say a huge batch that made lots of cakes like you did in your post. I can't look at the cakes anymore, I am drooling more than Merlin.

Victoria ♥

A. Wright said...

dale said...

Oh, math! Why did you have to make this so hard? lol

I think you made a hundred and thirty six and they ate all but a dozen and a half. ;)

Did I win? lol ;)
Happy Birthday again, Debbie, this is a nice way to celebrate. :) thank you. :)

I think 112 in total...but I'm not sure! Does'n matter.....I would like to partecipate too!
Thanks
Sonya

Tabitha Corsica said...

My WAG (wild a$$ guess) is 132...but then I have no idea how many your two could eat before you boxed them. Mine have been know to scarf down a dozen cookies before they are even cool...

And I'd like it if you'd post the recipe for the ones that look cream filled...yum!

Brujita said...

¡¡Felicidades Debbie...!! ¡¡Que sorteo más divertido...!! y que pastelillos más apetitosos... el aroma a bizcochos recien horneados debió invadir toda tu casa...vaya montonada... Entre los de las latas y los que se debieron comer sin dejar enfriar, yo diría que fueron 145 o más...
Besicos

kimsminiatures said...

Hi Debbie, What a fun give away. My guess is 122. I hope the prize is a tin of those yummy looking little cakes.Thanks so much for the chance my lovely friend Big hugs~ Kim

Patty said...

Debbie, What a great giveaway game!!! LOL....I am counting about 116 cakes visible in your photo and would suspect that 4 had been eaten before the photo(2 each)???

120 cakes

great gifts that you got!!!

Patty said...

Actually.....now that I looked again I bet it was more like 124 because it looks like one whole layer from the pink tub is gone! LOL

Lataina said...

This is going to be tough, since we don't know how many your guys ate. I think there are 124 in the tins and maybe between the three men they ate 9-12? I'm going to guess 136 total cakes baked! =D

MiniKat said...

I'm going to guess 144. I counted up cakes and then figured on the next multiple of 12.

Happy Birthday again!

Sharon said...

Happy Birthday Debbie, My guess is 96.

julie campbell said...

I'll go for 128 !

julie xx

Margriet said...

What a wonderful idea for a give-away...I'm guessing 132 cakes!!!

Eva said...

Let me guess! I have counted around 125 in tins (is a huge number of cupcakes!!!!) and perhaps 10 cupcakes more were eaten...
I would say 135 cupcakes!! :) :)

KC-Design said...

Dear Debbie,
I wish you Happy Birthday !

Yummy, would love to eat one of these cakes (-:

Chrissey said...

No soy Job said...

Feliz cumpleaños!
Yo pienso que son ¿130? :)
-----------------------------
Happy birthday!
I think they are 130? :)

The Mini - Maker said...

I am guessing that you made 11 batches of 12... meaning 132 total baked...
I only find 106 in the open tins and I'm averaging 16 for the unopened tin...
So I figure hungry hubby + hungry son = 10 cakes total eaten

Great way to do a giveaway!
*crosses fingers*

Lori said...

Wow! What a big batch of cakes.... I am dying to try the cream filled one! :) I will guess 132 total baked. This is a fun giveaway.

Daydreamer said...

Happy Birthday Debbie! (Late of course!) Like the others I have counted and guessed... what a LOT of cakes! I am drooling.... but I guess there are 124 cakes in the tins and at least 20 eaten by three hungry or was that 4 hungry men? So I say a round twelve dozen cakes! But only Two Kinds of cakes! Now I' really hungry! LOL!

nikkinikkinikki72 said...

Im going to say 160. Im not doing my minis but if im right with my guess, can you give it to the person thats nearest to my number.
Just wanted to join in for fun and see if im right, lol.
Nikki xxx

Karin F. said...

I'm going to guess 144. The cakes I can see are 124 & you said the guys ate some before they made it to the tins, so....

Fabiola said...

Even if late, happy birthday Debbie!
I tink the cakes are 124.
Hugs and kisses, Fabiola

The Dangerous Mezzo said...

I think you baked 138 cakes, and now I'm so hungry thinking about those cakes that I have to go get something to eat!

Happy Belated Birthday, Debbie!

Alennka said...

There seems to be an average of eight cakes on the top layer of each tin, times two layers per tin, times eight tins . . , I'd say 128 Cakes in total

Lisa said...

You made a whole tonne of cakes Debbie....... :o) they look delicious too..... my guess is 128 xxx

C.J. said...

I admire your productivity! Based on the picture, I'm guessing 120? This is, of course, assuming you made them in batches of even dozens, and not bakers' dozens.

Julia @ bearcabinminiatures said...

Sooo many cakes.. I'm going to guess at 130 I bet they were all delicous :)
Julia xxx

Ara said...

Hmmm.... I am guessing there were about 104 in the tins and then add 10ish more that didn't make it.... So I'll guess the weird number of 114! Love to try one of those - they look wonderful!! hugs, ara

cecilia colo - Miniaturista said...

First of all, Happy belated Birthday! I think it is adorable that the men in your life eat the sweets you make. My guess is 118 (although it looks like you made other cakes too). What a wonderful way to share your birthday with the rest of us.
Blessings,
Rebecca

Sans! said...

140?

Thanks for organising this. Such a fun giveaway!

Pearl said...

Debbie-

I am going to guess 112 and since it does not say that they necessarily eat the cakes, just that they like cakes fresh out the oven, I am giving the little window of opportunity for that part of the question. LOL

Mending from Surgery in NYC/They sure do look good and Happy Belated.

jacqueline said...
