Bakerella: 2009 Bloggies Finalist for Best Food Blog

This is crazy…

What?!?!?!? How did that happen? And, what the heck are the Bloggies? I hope you guys have heard of these because I hadn’t until I received a sweet message from Makes & Takes letting me know she nominated me. But, I’m guessing a few more of you must have done the same. So thanks everyone… this is really exciting! Now, let’s check out who I’m up against in the top five…

2009 Bloggies Best Food Blog Finalists:

The Pioneer Woman Cooks – PW rocks the ranch when it comes to food. Heck, she rocks at everything. (I might as well stop here. She’s probably already won.)

Smitten Kitchen – I might just vote for her because her name is so cute. (Not really…I’ve already voted for myself, but I am smitten.)

Chocolate & Zucchini – If cuisine is your thing, then you’ll want to vote for Cotilde.

Cake Wrecks – They don’t make food, but they do make fun of it. They show the best of messed up cakes.

Bakerella – Then, there’s me. I think I’m the underdog here, but if you like things sweet, then vote for me.
I'm a finalist in the 2009 Bloggies

So glad I saved my mii cupcake in the freezer. It came in pretty handy for this.

  1. you have my vote for sure i voted for you off the bat

  2. The pioneer woman won. What a disappointment for me. I wanted Bakerella so bad :(

  3. i love cake wrecks because they are what i use to slack off in class, but i’d have voted for you just because i’ve gotten so many ideas from you.

  6. Been and voted for you before I even saw your post. I was so excited to see your name on the list!

  7. No, I don’t double up. I use these and they’re pretty awesome.

  8. Hi Bakerella!

    So do you double up on your cupcake liners? Is that why the colors are still pronounced and you know they dont get the greassy baked look or do you just use better quality cupcake liners?

    Because I always have the problem of using pretty liners that you cant even see becuase when you bake in them they bake in to the cake and then they just look dirty greassy brownish color
