Welcome to the first week of The Holiday Cupcake Challenge! We will be celebrating the Holidays all month long with Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years!
Today’s challenge is flavor! What flavor screams the holidays to you? Apple, Peppermint, maybe Pumpkin?
How about Pumpkin Pie?? Or maybe Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes?
I’ll have to confess, while I LOVE anything flavored with pumpkin…muffins, pancakes, cookies, cupcakes, etc. etc…I’m not a fan of Pumpkin Pie, but these little Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes, I would definitely try!
To kick off our Holiday Cupcake Challenge, Alan and Karen are giving away a 2011 Hello, Cupcake Calendar to the winner of this week’s challenge! They sent me a calendar a couple months ago, and I had to hang it right away! It’s full of their great cupcake inspiration, like Pool Cupcakes, Back to School Apples and yup, you guessed it…Bake Sale Pies!
And as an added bonus! It’s signed…by Alan and Karen! How fun!
Now, let’s see what you have for the Flavor Challenge! And remember, you can enter your cupcake until next Monday, the 8th. and then on Tuesday, when you add your Thanksgiving Inspired Cupcake, voting will begin for this week. The winners will be chosen by you and your readers. So be sure to let me know!
Feel free to add any cupcake…even if you aren’t entering the Challenge. Don’t have a blog, but still want to enter? Contact me and we will figure it out!
Hot Toddy Cupcakes submitted by reader Joy, she doesn’t have a Blog, but still wanted to participate.
She started with a yellow cake mix, and added applesauce and rum extract. For the frosting she also added some rum extract. They look yummy don’t they?
