Although I've only made one creation from that cupcake book I'm SO excited to announce that Karen Tack, the author of Hello, Cupcake has a new book coming out in April of 2010 called What's New, Cupcake? I am a "friend" of hers on Facebook and she's having a fun cupcake challenge to win the new book. Here's what it says on Facebook:
"Want to win an autographed copy of What’s New, Cupcake? Want to show off your cupcaking skills?
During this baking season, show off your talents by coming up with a new cupcake design using only cupcakes, frosting, and one or all of the following candies:
Jelly Belly Jelly Beans
Post a picture of your creations here (meaning the Facebook event page) and e-mail them to Katrina.Kruse@hmhpub.com for a chance to win one of five books when they are published in April. Submission deadline is January 31, 2010."
I'm hoping that Christmas break might give me some time to play around with the challenge but I've learned that I can never predict what will happen on those breaks. I hope that some of you decide to participate. Here's the cover for the new book. So cute!
