It’s almost my blogiversary GIVEAWAY! Part 2

Congrats again to the winners of my blogiversary giveaway Part 1! If you didn’t win in the first giveaway, remember that the lovely people at Bright and Bold have offered my readers 15% off anything in the store until August 28th. Use code BEANTOWN when checking out. And they have free ground shipping with NO minimum!

Now on to the second giveaway. We will have two winners and the opportunity for two entries per person, just like the first giveaway.

This time I’m giving away some of my favorite things. One thing I love most in the world (other than Hubby of course) is cupcakes. I’m pretty well known for my baking in general, but specifically my cupcakes. If you don’t know that about me, you haven’t been reading my blog long enough! I have a variety of cupcake tools/gadgets that help make cupcake baking easier.

One lucky reader will win this cupcake package including the double decker cupcake carrier that I mentioned is SO MUCH better than the Wilton one, the new Martha Stewart cupcake cookbook, which I’ve made a few recipes from, and last but not least, a multi-color pack of cupcake liners (seen here).

A second lucky reader will win this super cute variety pack of cards from Cakespy. If you haven’t seen the Cakespy artwork, you have to check it out. It’s so freaking cute. Jessie at Cakespy is donating these cards for the giveaway (I wish I could win them!)

To celebrate the great cupcake giveaways, I will be kicking off cupcake week tomorrow. I’ll be giving you 5 days of cupcakes this week, so be sure to check back to see what I’m baking.

The winners will be announced shortly after my 2nd blogiversary (we’ll be on vacation with no internet access on the Big Day!)

The rules are similar as my first giveaway – leave a comment by midnight on August 28th with the following information:
– What are you known for? Or what do you wish to be known for?
– A way for me to get ahold of you (email address is fine)
– Only one entry per person
– Sorry, no international entries

And, if you’d like to have a second chance to win, that is simple too.
– If you have a food blog: create and blog about something from my blog (new blog entries only). Then leave another comment here linking back to your blog post.
– If you don’t have a food blog: create something from my blog and shoot me an email with a pic and your thoughts on the dish

    To Boston/RI residents I am known as the “the girl who runs” (I run XC and TF for BU); to the people at work I am known as “the girl who bakes;” and to all those who know me I’m am known as the girl with an endless love and insatiable appetite for cupcakes, particularly the frosting!

    Happy Baking! And P.S. I followed your cake ball recipe, except with maple cake and praline icing, and people loved them!

    I’m known for this dessert called Dream Pie. Once, Eric’s family made me make it three days in a row because they all thought it was so good. I didn’t even get a piece the first two days, so I took a piece out before I gave it to them on the third day, haha. :)

    Happy blogiversary!

    Hanaâ — August 27, 2009 at 4:17 pm

    Congratulations on your second blog-aversary. That’s quite an accomplishment. I always enjoy reading your blog, especially the comparisons that you do.

    What am I most known for? I would have to say for my baking and mostly my passion for baking. Apparently, I make it sound like so much fun that it’s contagious :o) Some of my friends who admitted to messing up even a cake or brownie from a mix, are now baking from scratch with the pointers I give them and becoming more and more confident. Maybe that’s why they have dubbed me the “baking queen” :o)

  163. #
    La Pixie — August 27, 2009 at 5:23 pm

    Elaine — August 28, 2009 at 5:41 pm

    With my friends, I am fondly known as being the “grandmum” of the group! Admittedly, it’s an odd label for one my age (as I am only a young, fresh-eyed college kid), but it really does work — I bake all the time, constantly send out cards/cute notes, prefer tea over coffee, gently remind others to get enough sleep/take care of themselves, and even cover up my frieds with blankets when they fall asleep in the dorm lounge. I suppose I am what you would call an old soul :)

    Happy Blogiversary, and thanks for the giveaway!
