Hello, What's New?

I love cupcakes. I don't necessarily love to eat them as I'm not a big fan of sweet desserts but I do love to make them and even more so, I love to look at them. There's just some whimsy that you can achieve with a cupcake that can't be achieved with a real cake. Awhile back I posted about getting my new book Hello, Cupcake. Unfortunately, I was never able to make cupcakes for people as I got pregnant and was completely wiped out.

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
Marshmallows
Gummy bears
Wafer cookies
M&M’s Minis
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!
