Giveaway? Says who!?

I have had this blog for a year, and have yet to hold a giveaway. It could be because I'm self conscious that nobody with participate...or that I'll make it too difficult...or maybe even too easy. Maybe it is because I never feel like I have an adequate prize to offer. You see, I don't have one of those crazy-popular blogs where companies just send me Haagen-Dazs Five Ice Cream or a few cans of Progresso Soups to give away, so the prizes are all on me.

I'll tell you what I can give you though. Cupcakes. I don't know anyone who doesn't love cupcakes! Especially nerdy cupcakes! So for this contest I will be sending the winner 2 dozen homemade cupcakes- flavor and design of their choice. They can be basic frosted cupcakes, cupcakes with characters on them, cupcakes made to look like they're not cupcakes...really anything you want :) In addition the winner will receive a surprise gift from the Caribbean (the drawing will be held once I return from my vacation there!)


How to qualify:
Leave a comment with link to your blog/facebook/email where I can contact you if you are the winner. This is worth 1 entry.

Additional Entries:
Make sure you comment here with links to your additional entries or I won't be able to count them :(
-Post about this contest on Twitter. 1 entry per tweet.
-Link to this contest on Facebook. 1 entry per link.
-Blog about this contest (with a link to this post). 3 entries
-Correctly identify the video game controllers on the cupcakes above. 1 entry per correct answer (comments will be screened so no one can cheat)

Who wins?
On February 7, 2010, all entries will be submitted to and a winner will be chosen.


  1. Could they be valentines day cupcakes? That would be great - and a surprise from your vacation in the caribbean? I've never been there, so that would be cool too. Congrats on one year, and good luck with the next!

  2. Good Morning, I work with Jake's Aunt Sue and she recommended your blog to me because of the ice creamy goodness, but I love your cupcakes too, I'm currently at work so can't back-read all your posts, but don't worry, it'll happen :-) As for the cupcakes at the top, the left one is the gun from Duck Hunt for the original Nintendo that came on the original Super Mario Bros. The one on the top is from the original x-box, the one on the bottom, the x-box 360, and the one to the right is the original Nintendo controller :-) Love the cupcakes! Do you sell them? Would love some LEGO ones!
