Hello, Cupcake Giveaway!

You guys have been so sweet and encouraging and you put a smile on my face everyday. So here’s a little fun to show my appreciation. I’m having a double, that’s right, I said DOUBLE Giveaway.

One lucky winner will receive a
copy of the book, Hello, Cupcake, courtesy of Houghton-Mifflin Books at Yummr (a community of people passionate about food and a place to share food-related experiences, recipes, reviews, photos, and videos.) This book is as cute as cute gets. Lots of great ideas that I wish I had thought of. And don’t worry, if you don’t win it here, you still have a shot. Yummr is having a “Cookbook a Day in the Month of May” Giveaway. You can visit Yummr to learn more.

Another lucky winner will receive a cupcake t-shirt from me at


HOW TO ENTER: It’s easy! Just leave your response to the following cupcake question in the comments section. (with an email or website link so I can contact you if you win).

Cupcake Poll & Giveaway!

Cutoff for comments is midnight, May 31st, 2008. I’ll announce the winners (picked at random) sometime on June 1. Good Luck!

I’d say these girls are definitely a handful! I used to love them before but I guess what they say is true…once you turn 30, everything starts going downhill from there. :) I’m trying to embrace turning though. Thanks for the opportunity to win. You have a fabulous blog! You’re such an inspiration!

Rachel said...

Itty bitty. So much fun, and a way better frosting to cake ratio!


I have heard so much about Hello! Cupcake, read the blog, etc., and would love upon love to own it.

Russ&Nic said...

Itty-Bitty. That way I can have more than one. Two is better than one, and three is way better than two :)

DoubleK said...

I like the itty-bitty but I somehow always end up getting the bite-size.

Love the blog.

Itty Bitty, I love anything miniature! A little taste is all I need!

lapras said...

If we are going by cup size, I would have to say, enough for two. But my husban alway says everything over a mouth is wasted, so that would itty bitty. Either one is fine as long as it is chocolate. Thanks for the chance to win a cookbook.

Is “all of the above” a good answer?! Okay, if I have to choose just one, I’ll say the C cupcake – a handful. I’m not ever going to pass up a cupcake, though!

You can get me through my blog which is linked in my profile. :)
