Hunting Sweet Designs

Hey guys –

I’m posting something a little different today and helping my friend Amy Atlas with a fun photo scavenger hunt she is hosting. There’s an opportunity to win a big bright blue prize if you want to play.

Here’s what’s happening. Amy will be sharing pictures across several blogs today from one of the dessert table chapters in her upcoming book, Amy Atlas’ Sweet Designs.


This is the first photo from the chapter she’s showing and the first stop of the scavenger hunt. (Hi there if you are just visiting for the hunt.)

This photo is a glimpse into the full table from the Pastel Pretty chapter in her book. Perfect for Easter. And just look at that Necco Wafer table runner. So cute. I think I see Necco Wafer kitchen curtains in my future.

If you want to play in Amy’s Sweet Easter Scavenger Hunt or even just see more pictures from her book before it’s out, visit Amy’s blog for rules and go here for the clues to the next blog locations popping up throughout the day. The next clue will be shared on her blog at 10:00 am. ET.

Now for the prize.
If you follow Amy’s clues throughout the day, you can enter for a chance to win a gorgeous Crystal Blue KitchenAid mixer on her blog today at 4 pm. She’s giving away 8 of them total. EIGHT! (that is one KitchenAid for one reader from each blog on the Scavenger Hunt) Pretty Awesome. So make sure if you enter, to tell Amy you are coming from Bakerella if you found out about the contest here.

And write the following code words down. You’ll need them to complete the hunt with code words from the other participating blogs:

is pretty in pink

Good Luck and start hunting.

UPDATE: Amy’s site went down before anyone could enter their answers to the scavenger hunt. Big bummer! But tomorrow she will be announcing when you will be able to submit your entries. I had fun with you today. I’m sorry we have to wait to see which one of you win. But thanks for playing and being so sweet and helping each other try and figure out the clues. I love you guys! So stay tuned to Amy’s blog for updates.

UPDATE 2: Here’s the information on how to enter the contest at 1 pm ET today (Friday, April 6th).


Can’t wait to see who wins.

Rgirl said...

Good Morning,
I don’t visit many other baking sites, so I don’t htink that I will do well at this.
From what I understand, you have to go back to Amy’s blog at the times she has listed and she will give you a clue to another bloggers site. You have to figure out who the blogger is from the clue and go to that site. When you get to the bloogers site you will find more words that will help you make the sentence at the end of the hunt.
Hope this helps.

Joni said...

April 5, 2012 11:57 AM
bakerella said...

Think 3 letter word for happiness.

April 5, 2012 11:58 AM
Bridget said...

Yeah, I know what goes in the blank…but that’s not helping me. I’ll keep looking

April 5, 2012 12:00 PM
bakerella said...

If you search the two word phrase in quotes on amy’s blog, it will come up in google.

April 5, 2012 12:02 PM
Bridget said...

I finally figured it out…DUH! I was way over thinking it!

April 5, 2012 12:02 PM
Rgirl said...

Thank you so much. I’d hug you, but since your not here I will hug my friend Ha Ha

April 5, 2012 12:07 PM
Dawn said...

Is clue 4 late?

April 5, 2012 12:07 PM
bakerella said...

Dawn – I think so.

April 5, 2012 12:07 PM
Dawn said...

Thank you!

April 5, 2012 12:08 PM
Carla said...

I have to leave my house for a moment and I haven’t waiting on clue #4 hahahaha

April 5, 2012 12:13 PM
Brittany said...

Keep refreshing the page waiting for #4, lol.

April 5, 2012 12:14 PM
Rgirl said...

all in good time ladies…
But i keep refreshing also

April 5, 2012 12:16 PM
Dawn said...

My refresh button is bruised ;)

April 5, 2012 12:17 PM
Brittany said...

Lol, (: The anticipation!

April 5, 2012 12:18 PM
bakerella said...

I have butterflies in my stomach for you guys. It’s coming soon. Just checked with Amy.

April 5, 2012 12:19 PM
Jess G said...

Well I’m hearing about it from you, so I’d say I need to investigate this bright blue device :)

April 5, 2012 12:19 PM
Rgirl said...

Question, do you know if the “code words” will be in order or mixed up?
I am thinking mixed up

April 5, 2012 12:23 PM
bakerella said...

Rgirl – she has them mixed up but should be pretty easy.

Also 4 is up. Read the text under her clue. This site is big.

April 5, 2012 12:24 PM
Brittany said...

Tricky, but got it! (: Very fun.

April 5, 2012 12:26 PM
Carrie S. said...

Wow! have to say Ill have to go back to these blog sites to read on some great ideas! How fun.

April 5, 2012 12:31 PM
Kathy C. said...

So much FUN! #4 (check)… I’m on a roll now….great new blogs (for me)…love this!!!

April 5, 2012 12:32 PM
Dawn said...

This is a great way to introduce us to new blogs!

April 5, 2012 12:33 PM
Alyssa H said...

I was having so much fun! But I have to go to class :(( I forgot about the time zone difference.

April 5, 2012 12:33 PM
Rgirl said...

Ok I am not doing as well as I thought on this one.

April 5, 2012 12:41 PM
Ivonne Vega said...

Ahhh Iam not doing so good I can’t get Clue #3 or #4, Iam giving up Iam kinda stress right now good luck girls.

April 5, 2012 12:50 PM
bakerella said...

When someone talks a lot they _________ – rhymes with rabble.

Visit the Family Kitchen blog on their site.

April 5, 2012 12:51 PM
Kristin said...

Don’t give up! I’m single, no kids, so I know nothing about parenting blogs. But, once I read the line under the Clue 4 image, it was a quick find. Just google the thing she tells you to look for.

And on clue 3, the phrase “Oh ___” is a happy exclamation, but I think it’s usually used in a more sarcastic sense… If you can think of that and google the phrase, it should be top of the results.

Hope that helps & unstresses!

April 5, 2012 12:56 PM
bakerella said...

Thanks Kristin. You are a sweetheart.

April 5, 2012 12:57 PM
Cheyenne Alspaugh said...

Once again….bruising my refresh button!!! I am blog CRAZY…I love reading them and truly love this little game!!!!

April 5, 2012 01:01 PM
Rgirl said...

Thank you Kristin,

April 5, 2012 01:06 PM
Cheyenne Alspaugh said...

Wahoo!!! Got clue number 5!!!!!!! Only 2 more to go!!!

April 5, 2012 01:10 PM
Lauren said...

Totally lost on 5… seems like it should be howdoesshedoit but thats not it!

April 5, 2012 01:11 PM
Dawn said...

Lauren – almost – but think shorter

April 5, 2012 01:12 PM
Lauren said...

Der! Found it, hard to find the contest on her site though!

April 5, 2012 01:13 PM
Superstevies said...

Went to Amy’s site…BUT WOW!!! Too confusing to participate for me. I am blonde I guess it shows. It’s a great mixer but it’s like IKEA directions on putting something together for this win.

Perhaps not enough coffee today yet? Good Luck to everybody who can figure it out.

April 5, 2012 01:16 PM
Brittany said...

Are the phrases like “is pretty in pink” already in the right order?

April 5, 2012 01:19 PM
Carrie S. said...

#5 stumped me for a minute since I dont follow many blogs but finally figured it out…but I doubt Ill win cause you folks are super fast..but this would be such a nice late Birthday

April 5, 2012 01:28 PM
Alyssa H said...

They are all mixed up a little bit but since they are phrases it shouldn’t be too hard to figure out.

April 5, 2012 01:29 PM
Ivonne Vega said...

Iam stuck on clue #3 please can any one help, Ive read all the comments but I still cant find it, is it “Oh Joy” or “Oh!”

April 5, 2012 01:32 PM
Brittany said...

Thanks! It’s looking like it’s going to be a long sentence, lol. And Ivonne, you almost have it! Google “oh joy blog” then scroll down. Good luck!

April 5, 2012 01:38 PM
Ivonne Vega said...

Brittany Thank you so much it was right in front of my face, Iam still not sure if I can participate since Iam from Puerto Rico but I wish you all the luck.

April 5, 2012 01:57 PM
Carla said...

Do we have to wait until 4:00pm EST to submit the answers?

April 5, 2012 01:57 PM
bakerella said...

Okay – I’m back. Ran to get a sub from Publix. Starving.

You will need to arrange the phrases to form the sentence and I think you wait until 4 to enter.

April 5, 2012 02:01 PM
Dawn said...

Ivonne, my understanding is that Puerto Ricans were all made US citizens as of 1917.

April 5, 2012 02:02 PM
Carla said...

There is just one clue left… :)

April 5, 2012 02:06 PM
Dawn said...

….However I now see that the rules say US residents :(

April 5, 2012 02:06 PM
Cheyenne Alspaugh said...

Only one more to go!!!

April 5, 2012 02:07 PM
Carla said...

Dawn, people living in Puerto Rico can’t participate on many sweepstakes and giveaways. I’ve been there, I just moved to the US a year ago.

April 5, 2012 02:09 PM
Kristin said...

I would keep playing if I were you Ivonne. If you win and you aren’t eligble, I’m sure Amy would give it to the runner up (second person). And if you are eligible (since PR is part of the USA), then YOU WIN!!

Clue #6 is fairly easy, but it stumped me a bit. Good thing Google starts thinking ahead of me and as I was typing my search, it suggested the answer!

April 5, 2012 02:09 PM
Carrie S. said...

Dawn it did say if you were an international participant that they were giving away a book

April 5, 2012 02:09 PM
Dawn said...

Thank you Carla :))

April 5, 2012 02:11 PM
Rachel said...

Soooo stumped on #6….aargh! lol

April 5, 2012 02:12 PM
bakerella said...

Rachel – starts with a c

April 5, 2012 02:14 PM
Rachel said...

ooops, got it….yay! :)

April 5, 2012 02:15 PM
Rachel said...

Thank you so much! You rock!!! :)

April 5, 2012 02:17 PM
Ivonne Vega said...

Thanks Dawn, Carla, Carrie and Kristin I will keep on trying, if I dont qualify at least I tried but Iam gonna have to save up and buy me one. I really need it to start my little business. Good Luck to each one of you.

April 5, 2012 02:19 PM
Kathy C. said...

ggrrr…#6 still has me completely stumped…I think I’m over thinking it perhaps?

April 5, 2012 02:34 PM
Rgirl said...

Clue “people find C_ _ _ _ _ _ in food”
that’s the word. I had a hard time finding it

April 5, 2012 02:36 PM
Taís said...

I’m sooo sad cause I don’t live in USA… I want the mixer so much! My cupcakes would be happier with it!!

April 5, 2012 02:41 PM
Sue said...

I love how helpful and supportive everyone here is being! Doesn’t seem to be happening on the other scavenger hunt sites.

April 5, 2012 02:45 PM
Lisa at Amy Atlas said...


Don’t give up hope!!! One International winner will win a signed copy of Amy’s book. You can still play and have fun!

We have loved all of the responses that we have received.

This is soooo much fun! I feel like a kid! :) Not so easy though. I hope I can win this for my twin sis. She has been wanting one for a while.

April 5, 2012 03:06 PM
Lauren said...

Can someone clarify how we are suppose to put this sentence together? I imagine there would be more than 1 way that makes sense.. Any ideas what to do once you have all 7 words? Is there a place that shows what the sentence is?

April 5, 2012 03:07 PM
bakerella said...

Lauren – you should be able to arrange them easily to form a sentence. I think having them in phrases helps. But you have me curious. I’m going to see if I can figure it out too.

April 5, 2012 03:10 PM
Shannon said...

any hints for finding #7?

April 5, 2012 03:13 PM
Carrie S. said...

she said she is going to post the full picture @4 and then you have to arrange the clues to form a sentence to go with the picture if I understood it correctly..wait why am I sharing this..I want that mixer…lol! Good luck everyone!

April 5, 2012 03:14 PM
Rachel said...

Shannon, I Googled “wedding cake blog” and it was the first one that came up for me. The key words are “more than just one layer” Hope that helps some!

April 5, 2012 03:18 PM
Dawn said...

Bakerella have you had any luck?

April 5, 2012 03:23 PM
Linda K. said...

I don’t know about the rest of you, but the sentence doesn’t seem to be coming to me

April 5, 2012 03:26 PM
Sunny said...

I am having a very hard time putting together a sentence…anyone else?

April 5, 2012 03:27 PM
Carla said...

Are we supposed to arrange every phrase or the words inside each phrase?

April 5, 2012 03:27 PM
Emily D said...

Can’t figure the sentence out for the life of me.

April 5, 2012 03:28 PM
Michelle G. said...

@Carla: I am wondering the same thing.
