Guessing Giveaway Winners

It’s time to give away the five fabulous cupcake prizes. This giveaway was a little more involved. More prizes and more winners. But, I finally have it all pulled together for you. One side note. There were 2,231 comments to the giveaway post, but several of you found your way to my flickr photostream and left your answers there. So, I copied the eligible comments from flickr and added them to the last comment in the giveaway post for a total of 2,306 entries. I don’t think I’ll be that nice next time. (Too much extra work.)

Now, let’s see who won what. And who won what they wanted. Hope this was fun for you guys. Let’s get started.

Number Cupcakes

The first winner (selected by is comment # 2013.


Now, let’s see if Robert and Hannah got what they want. Underneath cupcake number 6 is:


The super fabulous Cup-A-Cake Container. Sorry, no cutter. But at least you can protect your cupcake from harm’s way.

The second winner is comment # 279.


Okay, let’s see if you get lucky craftydiane. What’s behind cupcake number 8?


Not the shirt, which I’m glad you like by the way. You win the Sprinkles Cupcake Mix. Yippee!

Moving on. The third winner is Comment # 617.


Alright Kiersten, that’s easy…any it is.
And in this case, any equals brown baking cups. Congrats.


Now, for the fourth winner. That’s comment # 45.


Sorry Carly. The Cakespy art wasn’t actually up for grabs. But, I’m glad you’re easy to please because as we saw above, Cupcake 6 is the Cup-A-Cake Container and I think you’ll like it.

Hmmmmm. I was hoping for five different winners for each of the five prizes. Guess, I’ll need to buy more containers.

The fifth and not so final winner is comment # 2256. Oooh…this is one of the flickr ones I mentioned earlier. It’s a good thing I copied those comments over. Now let’s see who you are and what you wanted.


Another 6. I’m not sure if I should be happy or sad. On the one hand, we finally have a match. On the other, I still have two more prizes to give away. So, let’s keep going.

The next winner is comment # 1416.


And finally, a new number. Cupcake number 5 is……well………we know it’s not the sprinkles mix.


It’s the Cupcake T-shirt. An excellent score if I do say so myself.

The next winning comment is # 401.


Okay, let’s see what’s behind cupcake number 2.


Yay, it’s the cutter and even better Jodie is getting what she wanted. It must have been the fingers.

That’s it. Five prizes and seven winners later, the guessing is over.
And in case you’re wondering what’s underneath the other cupcakes, here you go:


I’ll be contacting the winners soon.
Thanks for playing everyone!

Just wanted to let you know I made your cake balls for my office holiday party and they were a big hit!!!
I stayed simple and made a vanilla cake, vanilla icing, and semi sweet chocolate coating.
They were not pretty like yours but they were very good!

What a fun giveaway! I wish I’d gotten here in time to enter the other night; I was like, a half hour too late.
I finally tried making cupcake pops last week; I didn’t do any fancy decorating, just dipped ’em. They made my hubby very happy! I can’t wait to make them again, and make them look cute this time!

I really appreciate you guys taking time to stop and congratulate the winners. I’m really glad you enjoyed the way I did this giveaway. It was more work than I thought, so I’m glad it was fun for everyone. I can’t wait to do more.

Also, Lorie, in the giveaway instructions, the Courier was not one of the five items up for grabs in the giveaway. There were nine faves and only five of them were given away. Take a look at the cupcake bottoms and you’ll see what I mean.

Again, thanks everyone!!!!!
