Follow Me to the Ranch!

That’s THE ranch. You know the one I mean. PW, MM, the punks and Charlie all live there. Yes, THE ranch. I’m so excited. And, if you don’t know who I’m talking about, allow me to introduce you to…

There, I said it. It’s official. It’s real now. And, I’ll be leaving pretty soon. Pioneer Woman and I are going to be kicking around in the kitchen at the lodge… so awesome! Now, for the fun part. If you want, you can follow me along the way on Twitter.


What’s Twitter? It’s like micro-blogging and allows you to communicate with short statements called “tweets.” It should be a fast way for me to keep you guys updated on all the fun right from my phone. And, there will be fun. (Hope I have good coverage.) Anyway, if you’re interested, here’s my Twitter profile.

Twitter Cupcakes

Now, for the really fun part…

Pioneer Woman is having a contest right now on her site. She’s selecting four people to come to the ranch for a Bakerella Cake Pop Demonstration. I know, crazy, right! Crazy fun! But, here’s the catch. You’ll need to be in driving distance to Northern Oklahoma. That’s right! And it’s right in the middle of nowhere.
Want to come? Hurry and enter today before 4:00 p.m. Pacific Time.

Well, I’m a city girl. Such a city girl that I don’t own a car.. guess I won’t asking to drive to THE ranch but it sounds SOOO fun. Enjoy yourself (like we even need to say that).

Love the cupcakes. They would be a beautiful addition to a shower.

First of all, thank you so much for leading me to PW’s site many months ago. Second – yay for you! I totally remember you saying you wanted to hang out at the ranch with PW and take pictures of cows all day (hee hee!). Plus, you get to stay at The Lodge. SOOOOO envious, but also so happy for you — what an awesome trip it will be. I don’t think CA is within easy driving distance to OK, so I’ll have to follow along via Twitter and

howdyamy said...

Well…define “driving distance”? I guess northern California probably wouldn’t count, even though I’d *totally* make the trip for this opportunity! I’d just have to figure out what to do with my little ones for a few days…hmm.

At any rate, have a wonderful time and give us lots of updates!

Hey Bakerella – I’m an avid lurker to your BLOG and PW’s Blog. I live in NW Arkansas and hope I’m selected to ‘meet you at the ranch’ But, if not – I look forward to seeing PW’s account of the event some time next week. Y’all have fun.

Bakerella, this is fantastic! I first found PW through your site and truly enjoy it. If I didn’t live in Canada I would so be there (if I won of course). Hopefully one day I will get the opportunity to meet either you or PW, it would be my honour.

I couldn’t find an email address.. so I thought I’d ask a question here.

I am baking a donut shaped cake for a friends birthday party. His favorite thing in the world is white cake donut with white frosting and sprinkles. I have a question and thought you might have some ideas.

I am going to use a large circular wedding cake pan to bake the cake. But I will have to cut parts of to get it to the toroid shape. But then the cake would get dry so I wanted to coat it with something other than fondant and still have it look like the golden brown deliciousness of a cake donut. Any suggestions?

Then, I was going to make a thick white frosting and put sprinkles on top. Can one buy extra large sprinkles?

Is it too weird to ask you for advice? :)
