Surprise Giveaway!

After decorating and tasting some of Sprinkles delicious pumpkin cupcakes, and after watching this video from Monocle about how architect Andrea Lenardin Madden came up with the brilliant Sprinkles cupcake design concept, I am definitely in the cupcake mood.



Since it is Friday, the beginning of a hopefully relaxing weekend, I thought it would be fun to do a random giveaway. Leave a comment on this post between now and Monday, Oct. 15th at 11:59pm and you will be entered to win one of my favorite cupcake books. I (perhaps, Vienna) will select a winner at random, and you will receive this goodie via snail mail. Good Luck!

Cupcakes sound fantastic when the weather is dreary like today. Just the right thing to put me in a cheery mood!

Anonymous said...

Ooh! I've been in a very cupcake mood lately. I'd love to have more options to try.

Ahhh cupcakes, the simplest way to make a smile. I especially love the aesthetic of the cupcake that Sprinkles brings to the table! Long live the gormet treat.

Fairlightday said...

We love cupcakes at our house. They're the perfect size for little ones. Plus, they eat all the frosting and decorations off the top and leave mom the bottoms. :) I'm good with that. I would love a cupcake book to give us inspiration.

My daughter just had a "cupcake" birthday! And since she adores them this would be perfect year round!

My end of summer goal was to bake red velvet cupcakes from scratch, but since that never came to fruition, I've decided, too, to turn to the heaven-in-a-tube from Williams-Sonoma. Hopefully by Halloween!

Oh Yummy! I would love to win this!

Livy said...

Now that I go to school in LA, home of the original Sprinkles, I've been meaning to get around to visiting. I've heard so much about it, and the cupcakes look so darling.

I recently took a cupcake design class at a local cooking store. My kids are obsessed with "tuptakes." I would love to have this book, especially since I will be making cupcakes for birthday parties, school functions, etc. for at least the next 10 years. Pick me, please.

Found your sight, thanks to Spray Glue! Lovely Cupcakes. Interesting to read about Sprinkles. Am going to visit the link to Soire now. We have a wedding in the family next year!

Anonymous said...

this makes me wish there were Sprinkles in Australia! Loved the video :) I once tried to emulate the little designs on top of the sprinkles cupcakes by making them by hand...and then I just saw that they have them in bags and all so perfectly formed...what a time saver!

Alexander Santillanes said...

Wow, I am rather envious of you for that pumpkin cupcake... I've been searching for anything flavored to Halloween or Autumn here in Bangkok, without luck. I may have to buy an oven just to make my own pumpkin cupcakes... -X

I think it's great that they are sticking to one basic (yet delicious!) product and finding new and creative ways to distribute. A lot of business owners, as well as business hopefulls, overwhelm themselves by trying to keep up with the latest trends but this goes to show that if you find a niche, pursue it creativly and passionately, then you're bound to find someone who appreciates your "taste buds"!

Ulla said...

Sounds Delicious! count me in please!!!

Andrea said...

Sounds YUMMMY! Please count me in as well! ;)

Mmmm...Cupcakes. I love them and so does my 3 year old. Count me in.

I would be the Best Auntie Ever if I made all the cupcakes shown in this book!! [cute blog, by the way, it's such a treat to read it!]

I have never had a Sprinkles Cupcake but they look and sound delicious. I would love to learn more about how to make these, especially the pumpkin ones you mentioned since I'm crazy about a pumkin muffin. I LOVE your blog and it has become a daily source of inspiration, so thank you for all you do!!!

I think it's sad that I've never been to Sprinkles even though I live in L.A.

Your blog is great, by the way. It's awesome to see another graphic designer sharing their inspiration :]
