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.

  2. Congratulations! I felt your cupcake was very worthy of my vote. :)

  3. 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.

  4. Grats :D I voted for your cupcake but they all were really awesome!

  5. 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? :)

  6. Wonderful and very derserving!

  7. Congratulations!!! Your cupcake sounded sooooo yummy… It was well worth the vote…

    I can’t imagine basil incorporated into a cupcake…mint, yes, but basil? Wow, that will be an interesting one.

  10. I voted for you and am going to try out your recipe this weekend! Also, I’ve closed comments on the cupcake pop giveaway but there’s a new one up and it’s recipe cards again!

  23. 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!

  24. 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:

  28. Nicely done! Isn’t it fun to be recognized for something you’ve made (and, of course, to win cool prizes)? ;)

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