Oh, My! I won... Cupcakes, Cookies and Pie, Oh, My!

I did something this morning I promised I would never do after I got
my new Mini-Cooper... I checked e-mails while driving to work! And,
just as I was warned... I lost control. But in a Good way! You see, the first
e-mail I read was from Liz, the creative force behind the wonderful blog
Hoosier Homemade telling me that I'd won her most recent give-away
for the fabulous new book, Cupcakes, Cookies and Pie, Oh, My!

Oh, My indeed!

I am so excited! I've been baking cupcakes since I was a very little girl,
and still feel that hardly anything else brightens the day quite like peeling a
pretty paper liner off your very own cupcake! Lately, I have been on a cupcake
kick, baking cupcakes and, mini cupcakes I affectionately call, cuppies every
weekend. I used to think a cupcake was a cupcake was a cupcake but in 2008,
Karen Tack and Alan Richardson turned the cupcake world upside down with
the introduction of their hugely successful book, Hello, Cupcake! The very
second these cupcakes were featured on Martha's April 2008 show, I began
stocking up on cupcake liners and everything else needed to create the wildly
imaginative and expressive cupcakes on the pages of Karen and Alan's book!

If you haven't already discovered Karen and Alan's books and you love
creating cupcakes as much as I do, then do yourself a favor and add
the whole series to your library today. You'll find them all here!

And, don't forget to add the Hello, Cupcake! Blog to your
list of favorites. I'm there everyday watching helpful videos
and discovering tips to improve every aspect of my Cupcake
baking and decorating adventures, and you can bet I'll be adding
the Hello, Cupcake app to my iPad the moment it is available!


  1. Congratulations! Looking forward to what comes out at that book and onto your new Carrara covered island :)

  2. Be careful using sealants!

    My stone supplier implied even letting warm cookies cool on sealed stone would allow the sealant to wear away, presumably, to leach into my fresh baked cookies. Yuck!
