Our Birthday Giveaway: Because What’s A Birthday Without A Cake?


Or make that two cakes.

Seven thousand eight hundred plus (7,800+) unique blog visitors and 380+ amazing Instagram friends and counting, marked B = Happiness’ almost five months since getting published! Add to the fun the fact that it was my birthday yesterday, July 30, and my baker friend’s (who kindly offered to give away two cakes!) today, July 31. Talk about serendipity! 😊

I’m doing things a little differently this time—I’m announcing the blog giveaway mechanics in this blog post from a separate entry about why I love these blog partners as I tend to write too long when I get carried away telling stories. Haha!

So, here goes our BIRTHDAY GIVEAWAY! Together with Mars Faraon-Gemeniano of Sweetly Baked by Mars, and in cooperation with South Pinanays (sounds so official, eh? 😂), we are giving away two 6” on-trend cakes—a drip cake and a faultine cake, so that’s ONE WINNER FOR EACH CAKE, for a total of TWO WINNERS.

Who wouldn’t want to receive this faultline cake for their birthday–it tastes as good as it looks?! OMG.

Sweetly Baked by Mars is our go-to cake artist of all time and one of our non-negotiables when we were preparing for our wedding—have ordered more than a dozen cakes from her (and referred her to many friends already!), including our wedding cake, birthday cakes, anniversary cakes, cupcakes, cookies, brownies, etc. as they are not only beautifully-made, but they are moist and delicious as well! South Pinanays, on the other hand, is one of our lifesavers! I would not have survived my breastfeeding and parenting journey if I didn’t have this community of kindhearted and good-intentioned mothers from the South. What an honor to be running this giveaway with them—so do join (you do note? :p) and spread the news! 😊

Giveaway will run from July 31 to August 31. Deadline is at 11:00pm Manila time on Saturday, August 31. Winners will be announced on Sunday, September 1. To learn more about how the winners will be chosen and announced, see ANNOUNCEMENT OF WINNERS below.

Enter this giveaway and get a chance to win either a 6” drip cake or a 6” faultine cake.

  1. To join the contest:
    via this blog – leave a comment with your name and input your valid email address (don’t worry, I won’t publish your email address!). Only one entry per email address will qualify. For more entries, you must use a different valid email address each time.
    via Instagram – follow B = Happiness, Sweetly Baked by Mars, AND South Pinanays (you must FOLLOW ALL THREE to qualify!), like the giveaway post, and tag a friend as a comment. More entries (aka more comments with tagged friends), more chances of winning!
    Via Facebook – like and follow Sweetly Baked by Mars AND South Pinanays (you must FOLLOW BOTH to qualify!), like the giveaway post, and tag a friend as a comment. More entries (aka more comments with tagged friends), more chances of winning!
  2. To make this more fun, indicate in your comment/s who you’re giving the cake to and why. I’m always the one giving cakes as gifts, so I was extra excited to receive a faultline cake yesterday for my birthday! THANK YOU SO MUCH, MARS, AND HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
I’d take this drip cake any day! Wouldn’t you?

TWO WINNERS will each receive one 6” cake—either drip or faultine. Qualified entries will be randomized via’s List Randomizer to get a number for each. Then, a winning number will be chosen via the True Random Number Generator. Will video record and post on Instagram stories for proof!

The winners will be announced on Sunday, September 1, on Instagram and Facebook (can’t specify what time but please give us a whole day to validate entries and randomize the list).

The TWO WINNERS will have to coordinate with Mars Faraon-Gemeniano of Sweetly Baked by Mars regarding schedule and availability (please give at least a week’s notice as the cakes are custom-made with love and passion). B = Happiness will shoulder delivery fees within Metro Manila via Lalamove or Transportify, but, if outside, the winners will have to shoulder shipping. Pick-up is also available, if preferred.

If you are based abroad, you may participate by entering the contest and giving away the cake/s to your friends based in the Philippines.

Go ahead—comment your entries below, on Instagram, and/or on Facebook! If getting a cake for free for your loved ones or yourself is not fun, I don’t know what is. Until the next giveaway! Thank you very much!
