FIRST EVER Blog Giveaway!!!

That's right, folks! I'm doing my first ever BLOG GIVEAWAY. And let me tell you, the odds are good to win this one.

I blog a lot about baking, though I haven't posted all of my past baking endeavors. One of the things I am most known for among friends and coworkers is my CUPCAKES.

While I always strive to bake delicious recipes for my cupcakes, I really think it is the presentation that makes people love them so much. Just taking the extra time to pipe your frosting into a cute swirl, maybe adding some sprinkles, really makes an impact! I've even passed of boxed cake mix cupcakes (gasp!) as works of art that people assume I spent hours working on.

The secret? Books like Hello, Cupcake! The design ideas are simple but eye-popping and adorable. Since I have WAY too many cookbooks (and cupcake books) and have learned all the tricks/lessons this one has to offer, I am giving away my PERSONAL copy (in near-flawless condition) of this book, mailed directly to you! :)

All you have to do is follow these steps to be eligible!

1) Follow my blog. Look to the right, and find the "Followers" area. Using your Google/Twitter/Yahoo/AIM/OpenID/etc. log-in, choose to "Follow publicly" and you will be listed as a Follower!

2) Post a comment to this blog entry, telling me about the best cupcake (taste or design!) that you've ever had!

It's that easy! I will be picking a random winner MONDAY, May 2nd, at 5 p.m. Eastern time.


  1. It's a great cookbook!!!! I love your blog too :)

  2. Hi Aubrey! Love the blog! Also, this book looks so cute! My two favorite cupcakes are:
    1. A BluBoy cupcake in Bloomington that was chocolate with a whipped peanut butter frosting topped with a peanut and salty caramel.
    2. A raspberry champagne cupcake from the Cupcakery in Las Vegas! It was done with a star tip and had shimmer to it!

  3. Hi Aubrey! The best cupcake I've ever had are the red velvet ones my mom baked when I was younger! So yummy! And brings back tons of memories!
    Happy Fiday!

    XO Shar!

  4. That is a great idea! I LOVE me some cupcakes!!

  5. Thanks for the giveaway! I follow on GFC as squiggles87. The best cupcake I ever had was a red velvet cupcake with cream cheese icing in the middle and on top. It was soooo good!


  6. Your blog is super cute! Why haven't I been following it until now? We got some super cute cupcakes when Olivia was born. They had icing and then fondant on top. I had never had fondant before so I was excited to try it :-) And the cupcake book looks really cute! Grace would love it I am sure (although she only eats frosting and not cake). I don't know how much Dustin would appreciate it though with a PT test in the near future ;-)

  7. Since this is about baking I am all game. The best cupcakes I have ever made were little yellow alien ones with piped yellow frosting with icing eyes (with M&Ms on top) and then a licorice mouth. I cheated though with funfetti cupcakes (I can't resist its my fav and I am all about aesthetics- with good taste of course). Now if we start talking about gingerbread people or houses... those are all from scratch!

  8. I'm a follower & I love cupcakes. My favourite are these little 2-bite ones that I make that have Irish Cream frosting (yes, the adult beverage) - yummmy!

  9. I am following you on Google Friend Connect as Viorela.
    the best cupcake i have ever had was with chocolate and coffee frosting,

  10. Follow you via GFC cupcake was a vanilla lemon with cream cheese frosting!

  11. I'm following via GFC!
    My favorite tasting cupcakes are chocolate guinness with cream cheese frosting. They're so good! But the cupcakes I enjoy the most are the ones I let my 4 year old son decorate. They may not be the prettiest, but they're the most special!
    Thanks for the chance!

  20. I am your newest Google Friend!

    Our downstairs neighbor at my last job was a bonafide cupcake artist, she made the most delicious cupcakes. My favorite was her lava cake ones. OMG, deadly!
