And the winner is…
Kristan from Confessions of a Cookbook Queen created these amazing cupcakes. Alan had this to say about the cupcakes in an email to me…
“Well I think we have a winner. There were so many great entries. I loved them all. But one participant had not one, but four stunning entries. Week after week! Kristan at Confessions of a Cookbook Queen started out on a high note with Bomb Pop Cupcakes. What a great idea for a summer flavor treat. Then the next week she had me laughing at her hysterical Minions out for a swim for the Summer Event. I loved the way she wrote about kids and sour candy, and her Kool Aid Cry Baby entry for the cake mix was terrific. I can’t wait to try it on the kids in my family. See if I can get them to scream Uncle when the sour hits the tongue! Finally, I really loved the Ribbon Rose Cupcakes. So simple and stunning, sounds delicious too. I also just love the way Kristan writes about her cooking adventures. Her stories are charming and her observations are very witty. She makes me want to make cupcakes every day. Well I do anyway, but she makes me want to make her cupcakes. And that is fantastic.
I think I have found a lot of new blogs to watch. Thanks to all of you for sharing these with me. I hope I will be seeing lots more fabulous cupcakes on your blogs again soon!”
