by on March 31, 2010 · 28 comments

Do you know a mom who deserves to be in the spotlight? If your friend, sister, mother or wife deserves some recognition, you can nominate her for a trip to Hollywood courtesy of Edwards Desserts.

This contest sounds like a lot of fun, and since it’s through Facebook it’s pretty easy to enter. Here’s what you do.

1. Stop by the Edwards Desserts Fan Page.

2. Pick a mom from your Facebook Friends List and write a short essay of 250-1,000 characters.

3. Upload a picture or video of of your nominee to help her stand out.

All eligible entries will be judged by a panel based on the following criteria:

— Creativity (20%)
— Poignancy (potential for the story to move/inspire people) (20%)
— Originality/authenticity of content (20%)
— Persuasiveness as to why the nominee deserves thanks and recognition for her efforts and dedication to others (40%)

Up to 10 finalists will be announced just after Mother’s Day on May 10th, 2010 and Edwards Desserts will open the voting to Facebook users. People can keep up with the contest when they become a fan of the Edwards Desserts Facebook page. One lucky mom will win a first-class trip for two to Hollywood, Calif., including five-star hotel accommodations and tickets to an exclusive red-carpet event. They’ll also win a supply of Edwards Singles desserts to enjoy all year long.

Have fun! And just for reading this, Edwards is giving you at a chance for some free Edwards Singles À La Mode desserts.

For a chance at the coupons, post a quick comment telling me your mother’s favorite dessert. I’ll pick the winners by the end of the day (midnight) and Edwards will mail you some free coupons. I can pick two winners.

My mom’s favorite dessert is carrot cake. I think. She doesn’t eat dessert that much. Unless Carvel soft serve chocolate ice cream counts.

Delia March 31, 2010 at 12:54 pm

My mom likes German chocolate cake, but really, all sweets are good.

Nancy March 31, 2010 at 12:56 pm

My mom very rarely eats dessert as well. I know she’s scared to death of Flan, some childhood trauma. Anyhow, I know one of her favorite things on a hot day is some Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream, so that’s what I’ll pick. Thanks for the giveaway.

My mom loves almond roca, homemade or from the store in those bright pink tins! Since that is really a holiday candy, she substitutes with Werther’s Originals during the rest of the year.

Mine loves Key Lime Pie!

Steph March 31, 2010 at 2:34 pm

My Mom loves any kind of cake – she will only have a small piece. Funny thing is that she goes back wtih her fork and picks at the cake to finish it off. I guess if it isn’t on a plate that the calories don’t count!

Katrina March 31, 2010 at 2:44 pm

My mom loves peach cream pie and spice cake (not all at the same time, I’m just not sure between the two which she likes more.)

Nicole March 31, 2010 at 6:13 pm

My mom’s favourite “dessert” is cheese, fruit and a glass of wine. It’s obviously an Italian thing. We used to have fruit and cheese after dinner when I was a child. Frankly, I always felt ripped off…lol! I tend to like dark chocolate desserts now, it makes me feel rebelious!

Pam March 31, 2010 at 7:29 pm

My mom loves all sweets, but one of her favorites is Red Velvet Cake with the original, cooked frosting (that contains flour).

Mindy March 31, 2010 at 7:32 pm

My Mom really loves key lime pie – I think she would go for that one in a heartbeat!

Anything with lemon curd!

Maria March 31, 2010 at 8:47 pm

Peanut butter ice cream with pieces of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups swirled in. Or peanut butter straight out of the jar. Not kidding!

Anne March 31, 2010 at 10:12 pm

My Mom’s favorite dessert is home made cream cheese pie. Second runner up would be a tie between Peanut Butter and Chocolate ice cream and/or Pralines & Cream ice cream from Baskin Robbins. She has excellent taste (and a giant sweet tooth)!

Lethea Benson April 1, 2010 at 6:58 am

My Mom’s favorite dessert would be about anthing with strawberries; strawberry creme pie, strawberry cheese cake or strawberry shortcake!
