Thanks everyone!

I found out yesterday that the winner of the first ever Iron Cupcake Earth Challenge was … ME! I want to say A BIG THANK YOU to everyone that voted for my Fire & Ice Cupcake. It was up against 70 tremendous contenders. You can take a look at them all here. Not only are the pictures great, but it’s also a handy go-to guide if you ever want your cupcakes a little on the hot side.

Now, with winning comes reward. And I can say that I’m super excited to receive all of the fun prizes. When I get them, I’ll do a little show & tell for you, so you can see them in all their awesomeness. And who knows, there might be something in it for you, too.

NEXT UP: BASIL. Join in on the fun.

I didn’t realize you were from atlanta. You don’t sell to a local bakery do you? I bet that Irwin St. Market would love to sell some cake pops.

Congrats!

And I’m excited about the basil coming up; I have bunch that I’ve grown but I’ve only used it a few times in lasagna and pizza. It’s such a cool herb, isn’t it? :)

Congrats!
This is probably a stupid question, but how do you get the frosting on your cupcake to look so “ruffly”??? :) It looks so cute and girly!

Bakerella said...

Hey everyone! I appreciate all the congrats. It was a fun challenge.

Jennifer – nope. not yet.

baker k – hmmm. I just went to their site to see. Those do look like something I would do. But upside down and brownies. Actually I’m working on some ideas for Halloween that look surprisingly similar. And maybe I’ll try some brownies myself.

Miranda – Don’t be nervous. Be adventurous. It’s just food and you’ll be surprised at what you can do when you just go for it. I’m jealous.

alicen – look at my answer towards the bottom of this post:

I had the best martini in Boston. It had basil infused simple syrup with a pineapple juice base. YUMMMY! Maybe that’s an idea.
