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.

    Is pretty in pink

  7. 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.

  8. This sounds like so much fun! An awesome idea! Love the blue mixer!

  9. Barbara!

  14. Thank you. You have made my day
    Good luck

  15. I love it!!! :)

  16. yay! this is so exciting and fun!

  17. I love it. have fun is this!!

  18. I absolutely can not get the second clue! And I thought I was blog savvy…

  19. Shannon,
    Hostest with the mostest
    just trying to help

  20. Hey Rgirl – See – not all baking. You might be a contender.

  21. Too cute of an idea. :) Thanks for sharing. LOVE the blue…

  22. WOW what a great giveaway. I’m heading over there now!

  23. Sounds like fun with a great prize at the end

  24. And I cannot for the life of me get clue #3…! Help:(

  25. I can’t get clue #3 either. :(

  26. So excited!!!! This is awesome!

  27. Think 3 letter word for happiness.

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

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

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

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

  32. Is clue 4 late?

  33. Dawn – I think so.

  34. Thank you!

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

  36. Keep refreshing the page waiting for #4, lol.

  37. all in good time ladies…
    But i keep refreshing also

  38. My refresh button is bruised ;)

  39. Lol, (: The anticipation!

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

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

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

  43. 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.

  44. Tricky, but got it! (: Very fun.

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

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

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

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

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

  50. 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.

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

    Visit the Family Kitchen blog on their site.

  52. 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!

  53. Thanks Kristin. You are a sweetheart.

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

  55. Thank you Kristin,

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

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

  58. Lauren – almost – but think shorter

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

  60. 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.

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

  62. #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

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

  64. 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!”

  65. 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!

  66. 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.

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

  68. 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.

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

  70. There is just one clue left… :)

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

  72. Only one more to go!!!

  73. 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.

  74. 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!

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

  76. Thank you Carla :))

  77. Soooo stumped on #6….aargh! lol

  78. Rachel – starts with a c

  79. ooops, got it….yay! :)

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

  81. 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.

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

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

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

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

  86. Tals,

    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.



  87. 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.

  89. 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?

  90. 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.

  91. any hints for finding #7?

  92. 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!

  93. 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!

  94. Bakerella have you had any luck?

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

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

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

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

  99. @Carla: I am wondering the same thing.
