New Year's Resolution Giveaway Contest

CELEBRATE 2009!

It has been a great first 5 months for us here. We started off small and slow, but now we're ready to kick off 2009 in style! The cupcake team, Rachel Kramer Bussel, Stacie Joy, Allison Bojarski, and Nichelle Stephens, agreed to let us guest-blog on Cupcakes Take the Cake! That was the one of first cupcake blogs we found, bookmarked, and still visit daily. We hoped that one day our cupcakes could be featured there... then that one day came! Our fortune cookie cupcake were featured on Cupcakes Take The Cake - they like our cupcakes!!! Trust me, we were so ecstatic that we e-mailed friends and family about it. So please, don't forget to check out our guest-blogger post there today!

Here are some behind-the-scene photos from creating our New Year's Resolution cupcakes:
1. Baking the vanilla cupcakes without cupcake liners. We used Wilton's Bake Easy non-stick spray so the cupcakes would easily pop out!

2. Baking the cupcakes in the oven.

3. Yay! The cupcakes didn't stick to the pan! Here they are cooling off.


4. Next, we rolled out some fondant and wrapped it around the cupcake. Then, we used Wilton's FoodWriters, which are edible colour markers to draw the faces. Lastly, the cupcakes were frosted with buttercream.


5. If you're wondering about the thought and speech bubbles we added in. We used Big Huge Labs which lets you do fun things with your photos!


New Year's Resolution Giveaway Contest

Now, we know that the best way to kick off 2009 is to have a Giveaway Contest! So first, we must thank Melissa from HarperCollinsCanada for If You Give a Cat a Cupcake, Lisa from Cupcake Wraptures for her beautiful cupcake wrappers, Jessica from Chronicle Books for Sky High: Irresistible Triple-Layer Cakes, Anna from Hachette Book Group for Confetti Cakes for Kids, Lindsey from Da Capo Books for Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World, and Diana & Karen from Wilton Industries for the 19 Count Party Stand! Once again, thank you all for ringing in the New Year by providing great prizes for some lucky readers!

If you give a cat a cupcake, he'll ask for some sprinkles to go with it. When you give him the sprinkles, he might spill some on the floor. Cleaning up will make him hot, so you'll give him a bathing suit . . . and that's just the beginning! The lovable cat who first appeared in If You Give a Pig a Party now has his very own book! Written in the tradition of the bestselling If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, Laura Numeroff and Felicia Bond's newest story will show everyone that Cat is where it's at! Don't forget to check out Laura Numeroff's website and MouseCookieBooks.com! You can also read our review for the book in our newly created Review section..

    Such great sites and reviews on the cupcake phenom! Well, I really must say, one of my resolutions is learning that it's ok to say no, with regards to your time. By doing that, you are able to refocus and give your time to familiar priorities. ( one of which is to develop some cool cupcake recipes!) thanks for a great giveaway!

    Since I can only pick one (i pick all of them!) then my Favorite Resolution is: "6. I would like to travel or visit someplace I've never been before."

    I've never been anywhere and I mean nowhere at all except the lovely state of New York where I live, and I've also never been to any kind of cake show. So my resolution is to go to an out of state show, hopefully more than one. I'm still new and ready to learn and it would be great to explore a bunch of new places and learn so much at same time!

  103. Number 7 for sure because I want to learn to spread the love with cupcakes while I learn all about cupcakes! I started making cupcakes last year and this year I vow to learn so much more!
    Have a sweet new year and thanks for the fun,

    I love #7, though they are all adorable and awesome. Mostly because I want to learn to make the Perfect Cupcake, but I want to learn a lot more things as well... Thanks for this great contest!

    I can't pick between the branching out and the getting organized resolutions. Here's hoping I can do a bit of both!

    Thanks so much for the lovely giveaway and the chance to win. Happy new year!!

  117. #1 is my fave too! Though #8 tops my resolution list -- I will lost that "muffin top" this year (that has resulted from 2 pregnancies and too many cupcakes!).
    You guys are giving away some awesome prizes and though I am in France, would like to enter on behalf of my mom who taught me how to make my very first cupcakes!

  119. No 3#: From time-to-time, I will go out of my comfort level and try something new.

    - Whether that means taking up new hobbies or, eating cupcakes for breakfast :P

  122. My favorite is #6 I would like to travel or visit someplace I've never been before.
    This was my resolution before I discovered your blog through Cupcakes Take the Cake!
    Life is too short to see the same things over and over - I want to see something or someplace new everyday!

  124. My resolution is to bake something new every week (want to see how far I can get through "Paris Sweets"), and to travel more. Nothing too exotic this year, but travel is travel :)

    I could never stop eating frosting.... Mm!

    My favorite is Number 8 which fits me exactly!!:" Speaking of eating, I should exercise regularly to keep fit"
    I haven't excercised in who knows how long! I'm a pastry chef, so I've been too busy eating all of my cupcakes to even pay the slightest attention to excercising!!

    Oh, and a New Year's resolution of mine is to floss after every cupcake...uhh...I mean meal....no cupcake! There, I told the truth!
    I think I might need some more flossing resolution-practicing, so I think I might eat some more cupcakes!!! That will get me into the swing of flossing!...MWAHAHA! :0)

  137. I left my wittiest, most clever comment at cupcakestakethecake...
    I said #9, but I feel I must add "spread the cupcake love." I think world peace could be acheived with a few billion cupcakes. How much flour would go into a few billion cupcakes?

  138. My new years resolution is to not be so critical of my own work. We are our own worst critic and sometimes that gets in the way of being creative. Happy 2009 to you all!

  144. My favorite is:
    I should not eat leftover frosting for breakfast... lunch... and dinner.
    I would only add: and I will not get up in the middle of the night and eat frosting.
