Cake, tunes and booze--what's not to love?
On March 1, James Beard Award nominee and Best Bakery owner Michelle Gayer will be hosting a cakewalk at the Fine Line. The proceeds will benefit Share Our Strength, an organization committed to ending childhood hunger.

In addition to the Salty Tart, a few other big-name local pastry chefs have signed on since we first told you about this event.  Diane Yang of La Belle Vie, Zoe Francois of Tilia, Heidi Woodman of Heidi's, Solveig Tofte of Sun Street Breads, Niki Francioli of Sea Change, Anne Rucker of Bogart Loves, the Chef Shack, and Sheela Namakkal and more will be sharing confections. It's going to be an epic sugar rush.

The night will include DJ's and drinks poured by some of the best bartenders in the Cities. Tickets are still available for $60 and can be purchased here. But City Pages also has two tickets you can win. Here's how:

We want to know, what is your favorite sweet treat? Just leave a comment below with your preferred post-meal sugar delivery vehicle and we'll select a winner at random at the close of business tomorrow, Thursday February 23. Please be sure to include your real email address with your comment. It won't be publicly visible, but we'll need it to contact the winner. 

**We have a winner! Congratulations, Alice S. ! We'll be contacting you shortly. Thank you everyone for sharing your drool-worthy dessert cravings. If you'll excuse us, we need to go see a Girl Scout about some cookies.***

Cake of course! - the more chocolate the better, and what a great way to get some.  I remember fondly the cake walks of my youth.

The passion fruit cupcake with swiss meringue frosting from Salty Tart is simply the best!

My favorite dessert...hmm, that's hard. I would probably say a scoop of REAL vanilla ice cream with fruit topping or a strawberry or raspberry cheesecake. There I go with the fruit theme again. :-)

I pretty much like everything, but a nice slice of banana cream pie ranks near the top.

Junior Mints/York Peppermint Patties - So good! If it's homemade, then definitely my mom's ginger cookies. They are AMAZING!!

Cookies! They're a great way to satisfy a sweet tooth with a small amount. They work for all occasions. Chocolate chip, snickerdoodles, spritz, frosted sugar, oatmeal, need I say more?

These Spanish almond spice sugar cookies called Povlorons. We would get them from a spicific bakery in Yakima, WA every summer on car trips to Colorado from Washington very summer when I was a kid.

The green apple pie at Peter's Grill in downtown Mpls. Put a scoop of cinnamon ice cream on top that, and you've got the perfect sweet treat.

Creme Brulee is my all time favorite but if it's something I'm whipping up quick at home, the classic chocolate layered cake with chocolate frosting.

i could not think of the answer to this - too many possibilities - so i asked dave and right away he responded with "rice krispie treats" and i think he's right! i often eat a whole pan in one sitting. it's like crack!

The only sweet I've ever craved consistently is the Sample Room's flourless chocolate cake.

Salted caramel ice cream wins for me. Bonus if it has chocolate-covered pretzels in it and that it was made in my own home.

Being pregnant it seems to change each day-ice cream, skittles, chocolate cake, girl scout cookies-the list seems endless! But if I had to pick just one, I'd say Cafe Latte's Turtle Cake!
