Wii have a winner!

And, by the looks of these comments, a lot of girl gamers, too. There were more than 5,000 entries trying to win the Wii and lots of them with pretty funny reasons for which mii cupcake you picked. I’ve had a blast reading them all. Took me forever… but, worth it. Now, here’s a little chart to give you a breakdown of which mii received the most votes.

Mii Chart

Hmmmmmmm… most of you picked C and most of you were RIGHT!

However, I wish I had lips like D and the nerve to cut my hair short like B. I’d totally love to have short, sassy red hair. So cute!

But, C is Mii!

My Mii

And for the record, my hair isn’t quite this yellow, but Nintendo doesn’t have a color choice for dirty blonde.

Alright, let’s get on with things… time for the winner. Who’s it gonna be

I need one number between 1 and 5,135.

Note: Around 90 people accidentally left their comment in the wrong post, so I added them in the last comment so they would have a shot in the drawing, too. If you go to the last comment 5,044, you’ll see them. In the future, please be careful where you post because I probably won’t be that nice. Thanks!

And, it’s comment #1,841.

Oh no BERE…So close…but you guessed wrong. Man, that hurts. Sorry! Now, I need another number.

And the next one is comment #1,579

YAY Cassi! You picked Mii… C and you’ve won a Wii!
Prepare your kids for the good news. I’ll be contacting you soon.

Oh yeah, thanks for all the Wii Fit reviews. It’s good to know how much you guys like it. I just may have to get one.

Now, I’ve gotta go bowl… ummm… I mean bake!

Well, my kids pouted for thirty seconds and then got over it. Congratulations to the winner. I have been thinking that a great consolation prize would be if you shared with all of us losers how you work with fondant when decorating cupcakes! They are so cute! Thank you for such a fun giveaway! ~Kelly

Vera said...

congratulations to the WIIner! :)
I thought you really were D, but only because of the cut and the hair color, hehe.

i’m pouting too *pout*
congrats Cassi! :)

You have a beauty mark?

jessie. said...

I already have a Wii which is why I didn’t enter. But those cupcakes were ADORABLE!

I love my Wii and Wii Fit was interesting for the first few days. I lost interest quickly though. Within the next year, lots of Wii Fits will be on ebay so I’d wait and get your from there, way cheaper.

Best dishes!

LaDue & Crew said...

~*sigh*~ oh well, they’ll be more fun stuff in the future! knew it was “C” because I saw you on Martha! You are way prettier than fondant will allow!

I was bummed for a about 3 seconds, but when I read that Cassi has kids who will be so excited, I was very happy for both she and her kids! Congrats and thanks for the opportunity!

FYI, I made the Betty Choc. Chip Cookie Dough Brownies (from your prior post) and boy are those things amazing! My husband is on a diet and was not very happy with me….I didn’t do it to throw his diet off, they were too good to pass up–plus we are hosting a Super Bowl party next week so thought I’d try them out now–make sure I know how to make them ;)… Definitely making them again for the all the guys!

I must say putting those two things together is a deadly combination for me. Both are my favorites. A keeper recipe for sure. Thanks for sharing it with us!

Congratulations to the winner and sorry to the first winner that guessed incorrectly. :(

I have been checking all day to see if I won because my kids would have died – I didn’t tell them I entered. I guessed the wrong mii, so I wouldn’t have won anyway. :/

Anyway, so fun. I am so excited to have a fun new blog to look at daily. And fun recipes to make. THanks!!!

Hi, I was just tagged by fellow blogger, Miri. I was never very good at playing tag. I just couldn’t run fast enough to tag anyone else. So, even though I have a bad tag record, I am going to give it a try. TAG YOU’RE IT!

As a new blogger, I am aware that many of you are blogging, parenting, running businesses and more. I know your time is precious. My post for this tag, with directions, will post on Wednesday, January 28. I will link your blog and your shoppe if you have one. If we are going to tag one another we should use this fun to promote readership and business.

I would like your permission to use a photograph from your blog to further emphasize how great your work is. Let me know if this is not okay. I am sensitive to copyright issues and know you want to be represented well, even if on a little blog like mine.
This is certainly optional. You are not obligated to play along.

Thank you,

Congrats to the Wii winner! Probably best I didn’t win, I don’t need another thing to spend time on =).

I too would love to have some tips on the fondant, as I’m a little scared of it.

Okay, when I saw “Cassi” my stomach did a little flip-flop, since my REAL name is “Cassi” and I have never met anyone who spells it like I do… but then I realized that I didn’t post under my real name.

Oh well, congrats to the other Cassi! I’m excited to see that someone else with my name spells is “correctly”! LOL!

Cassykins said...

Yay for Cassi! I almost thought it was me who won and got excited (Cassy/Cassi, huh?) but then I read the comment left and wondered when I had kids. lol. I still think it would be so much fun to make my Mii into a cupcake.

I found my way to your blog from Mix Mingle Glow and these cupcakes really caught my eye.

These cupcakes are so beautifully crafted! This would be a really great personalization touch to any event. I bet you could specialize in this! I am so impressed by their likeness to the real thing! (I’m a Nintendo fan.)

Did you take that picture yourself? I was wondering if I could use it in a post to highlight these cupcakes and link back to your blog. Thanks!

Shanna – Thanks, I took the pics myself. You can post about it if you credit the photo and link to the site.

EAT! said...

My son just helped me make my mii the other night. We really think that I look like two totally different people.

I wish I had a cupmake mii instead of a wii mii.

Hey EAT – that’s funny and I totally know what you mean.
