Hello Cupcake

Look what came in the mail for me today!
(Isn't it so stylish?)

From Madalina at www.duhlicious.com (check out her amazing site).
This is the first time I've won something from a blog contest I entered!

The subtle "Hello Cupcake" is engraved on the ring.

This just reminded me of Karen Tack and Alan Richardson's book, Hello, Cupcake!

I have been meaning to share this for some time now! I got a BLAD (Basic Layout And Design) of their upcoming book, What's New, Cupcake? from an author (<-- yes, shameless plug, click it!) in January. She picked it up for me at the ALA (American Library Association) Midwinter Conference in Boston.

There's only a couple of pages in the BLAD, but I am excited for this book! Plus, I need it to accompany Hello, Cupcake! - it makes me sad when a book is missing it's companion! There are two excerpts from the book on www.amazon.com (the apple and koi fish cupcakes).

P.S. Thomas Allen & Sons Ltd. is currently holding a cupcake decorating contest (deadline is on May 1, 2010) for your chance to win a copy of What's New, Cupcake?
