Hi friends! I must have gotten bitten by a "giveaway bug" or something because now I just want to give everyone a prize! But c'mon, you knew I could not resist giving away this one and you had to see it coming a mile away. And just for fun because I know I have been a bit neglectful in my postings for my lovely readers, I am going to make it really fun for all of you to have a chance to win.

Here is how we are going to do this. I am still doing the Sephora Sun Safety Kit Giveaway which ends on Friday, June 5th. So keep entering for your chance to win that because I want you all to have a healthy and sunburn free summer! I would be remiss if I did not send out a big, fluffy buttercream icing on top, sprinkle covered thank you to All Things Cupcake for posting my giveaway on their site. Thanks for sharing your time and little corner of webspace for me! I am certain someone came down and sprinkled fairy dust all over you ladies!! xoxo

Ok! On to our contest! Now that Martha's cupcake cookbook has FINALLY published and cupcake lovers all over the world have let out a collective sigh of relief as our flour covered fingers eagerly flip through each photograph and recipe on the glossy pages of this higly anticipated cookbook, (and the choir of angels come in here) we can all rejoice and plan our sleepovers, paint our toe nails, braid each others hair and bake all weekend long with this cookbook! Perhaps I am getting carried away!

But if you are among the people who have not yet been able to get your hands on the book, here is your chance to win. I am really excited about giving away the Martha Stewart Cupcakes Cookbook because I have 3 to giveaway! I also have as a runner up prize, which is really also a Grand Prize to me, the Martha Stewart Cookies Cookbook to giveaway.

Grand Prize: Martha Stewart Cupcakes Cookbook (3)

Here is what you have to do:
I want to know what your favorite cupcakes or cookies are, or both, or maybe a cookie/cupcake combination. Whatever it is, I know I have creative readers. I like to hear what you have to say! Also leave your email address when you leave your coment so I can get in touch with you when you win.

my favorite cupcake is from a bakery called Sugar Sweet Sunshine in NYC. They have a really awesome pistachio cupcake with cream cheese frosting. It's a unique flavor that you dont' find everywhere and it doesn't taste artificial. Not too sweet and the frosting is soooo good.

Lina said...

I bake cupcakes all the time and am always looking for new flavor ideas. I love anything with wonky things in the middle: cookie dough, Reese's cup, fruity filling. I recently made some delicious chocolate cupcakes with peanut butter filling baked inside, dipped each in chocolate ganache, and sprinkled crushed Reese's on top. I'll definitely be making those again.

I'd have to say my favorites that I've made are Root Beer cupcakes. They were quite a hit at work too. I've tried some lemonade/pink lemonade cupcakes recently (didn't make those though) and I think those are my summer-y cupcakes.

For cookies I will always love the classic Sugar cookie or a Snickerdoodle.

I have to be honest... I'm a total chocoholic. I've worked in a chocolate shop for over 7 years and I STILL LOVE chocolate! When I'm craving a cupcake or cookie.. the more chocolate the better. I LOVE devil's food cupcakes with chocolate icing and chocolate chips stirred in. Over the top, you say! Wouldn't have it any other way. I love to make chocolate chip cookies with chunks of chocolate chips in them, too! Great contest! Thanks!

I never saw a cupcake I did not like. I love you site. Please enter me in the cupcake contest. I recently made cupcakes that looked like old fashioned floats. They were infused with cherry and limeade, with pink frosting and a cherry on top! The tasted like a slushy.
Namaste, Megumi!
