Cupcake Contest

Click HERE to go straight to the entries!

The kids have been busy with their easy bake microwave set & it got me thinking...we should have a cupcake contest! 



Lucky for you I won't let Annie enter :)

Hopefully...yours will taste better than these.
They were pretty awful :)

So...here are the "rules"

Make a cupcake.
Take a picture.
Email it to me.

In 2 weeks
(hopefully that will give everyone enough time)
on January 24th
I will post all the photos I received before
then & start the contest! 

Already have a picture taken? 
GREAT...Use it!

Please only submit photos
of cupcakes YOU baked.

Winners?

These ADORABLE
Anthropology measuring spoons

& a large Cupcake candle made by yours truly :)

& I will throw in a surprise too!

I made a little button for the contest & put it on my sidebar so that once the contest begins...send your friends over to vote!

Open to EVERYONE! 

Good Luck!!!

This is sooooo my kind of contest! Your kids made the cutest cupcakes--I could never compete with them! Now are you sure you don't want us to just mail our cupcakes to you? You could really be in a good spot if you work this right. :)

Ooooohhhhh...I am so in! Anthro anything is so, so, so me! And your candles! YUM! Can you enter more than once? And I can help you with a button if you would like but no pressure. I love making them!

Hi Libbie! I am afraid to admit it but I have not been the best baker lately... in fact my family will tell you that baked goods are practically non-existent in our house. ugh. Our neighbor actually saved the day when she brought over Christmas cookies for us... that way we had something to leave out for Santa! I know I should be better at this, my mom used to make wedding cakes and the like. I attribute my loathing of baking to a poor kitchen layout and the fact that if I just breathe those yummy cupcakes in, I gain 5 pounds! I can't wait to see what everyone else sends in though, or maybe ask Bo and Annie if I can make mine out of play dough... that I can do! love ya! Theresa xoxo

Shelley said...

Oh My Goodness!! Why am I not baking right now???? :(
P.S. I can't wait to see you soon. :)

Trisha said...

What a fun idea and I just so happen to be making some cupcakes tonight! I'll be sure to take pictures and enter your contest. Your kids made some really cute cupcakes by the way!!

What a fun,fun idea!!! As soon as I can I will get out for some cupcake makings.
Tell Annie she is the best cupcake maker that I have ever seen!!!
Blessings,

So you come over and say nice things that make me cry then you tell me not to come over knowing full well that will make me come over because I am a rebel so here I am.

I love those kids of yours. Those half-naked boys and their gorgeous sister are always up to something fun.

BTW.....I may just bake a tofu cupcake and enter your contest. Can you bake tofu? What is tofu anyway?

PS...Jess never offered to make a button for me. Probably some concern over the butts thing.

Two Shades of Pink said...

Oh hahahahahaha! So glad I came back here to be nosy and see who enters...yes. The butts thing would have me staring at the screen is a bit terrifying to be creative with. LOL!

Grandma Yellow Hair said...

Oh wow how cool is this! Good thing Annie can't put hers in or none of us would stand a chance. Gosh I have to get busy and see if I can come up with something. haha
Great idea
Love
Maggie

koralee said...

Hugs for a great new week. xoxoxxo

Cookie baker Lynn said...

Cupcakes? Prizes? I'm in!

A Serenade for Solitude said...

Fun!! What a great idea!

T's Daily Treasures said...

Hey Libbie! This sounds like so much fun. I don't do cupcakes but will be fun to see what everyone else does. I don't think Koralee should be allowed to enter. We all know how creative she is. HA! Love that your kids are having fun baking. I can't believe you were making that sweet Annie wear white socks. Thank goodness Santa got her some fancy schmancy ones. My 12 year old had a band concert last nite and his teacher told them that she didn't want to see anyone with white socks (they had to wear black shoes and pants. :) Happy day to you and yours, Tammy

April said...

I wanna play!!! Just sent you an email!!!

Karen said...

Oh, Libbie, how neat. If I have time I will try. My hubbie will always help me eat the bad looking ones. :P

blueviolet said...

What a fun contest! Those treats were really that bad, huh?

m.e (Cathie) said...

i'll be in that for sure!!
I think Annie's cupcakes are pretty delicious looking.

He & Me + 3 said...

What a super fun idea. I sure wish I was a good baker. I would totally enter. Can't wait to see the contestants. I am sure they will be so cute.

Cindy said...

That sounds like a very fun idea!!!
Thank you so much for visiting my blog today and for your very sweet comment. Hey, I like your blog and I will be back!
Hugs, Cindy

Your little ones are just sooooo darn cute! And, I'd love to enter, but I'm not only a lousy cook... I"m a lousy baker too!

Warm hugs,
Spencer

Barbara said...

Hi Libbie,
I just had to pop over and say "Hi!". It's nice to meet you. You have a beautiful family. I'm a sucker for a little girl in curls.
Your cupcake contest sounds fun...I might try it. I'll check back soon.
Best wishes,
Barbara

Thanks

This sounds like fun ~ I have to try and get my act together and bake a cupcake or two!

Speaking of contests....Bo would win hands down in a contest for the cutest cheeks! I just want to pinch them!
