Contest Winner and Cupcake Parties

Photobucket

Number 6 in the comments is Cherie,who looks like she'd be a fabulous friend in real life, based on her cute blogger profile. I've emailed you, Cherie! Claim your goodies and Happy Valentine's Day, early!

Meanwhile, I've been LOVING your comments! Funnily enough, two of you mentioned cookie dough cupcakes as the flavor you'd bring, and that was exactly what I had made for my contribution to the cupcake party! Yellow cake mix, a blob of cookie dough in the center, and a vanilla buttercream frosting with mini chocolate chips and a teeny chocolate chip cookie on top as garnish. Cute!

The party was loud, boisterous, and oh so sweet-- a perfect distraction from the February Blahs. I recommend all of you go host one immediately:

It is guaranteed to make your friends' days to be invited, and who doesn't need a few cupcakes in their life?

Also, I have hit upon another perfect distraction from the February Blahs, quite by accident: I need to keep having little contests/giveaways! I tell you what--- in the middle of this insane week, filled with dentist crap, PMS, computer woes, and work backlog, nothing perked me up faster than hearing the little "ping" from my phone, telling me I'd gotten another blog comment. Woot!! I felt warm! Loved! Happy! Sure, sure--- you guys are just using me for my giveaways... But hey-- I'll take it! It was so much fun!

So look for another little crafty giveaway SOON. I have at least two more up my sleeve to keep this February fun. Hooray! 

Til then, Happy Weekend and thanks for playing!

  2. Hey Em! Excited to host my own cupcake party! Great idea! Couple of questions... How do you prevent everyone from bringing store bought or plain old cupcakes? Also isn't two dozen per person a crazy amount? How many get eaten at the party and how many do you get to bring home? I mean if I'm indulging I want some creativity and crazy flavors right? Lol!

  4. Ping!!!! Seriously, you are too cute. I am loving the cupcake party idea. I am impressed with all that you get done, and what I love is how you keep things "real."

    Hope this February is full of happiness and joy and more cupcakes for you...even despite the February blahs, which we ALL experience.

    Mine are lifted by planning a birthday party for my littlest one, who is one next weekend. Yippee!!!
