  1. Gosh, I wish I was in NYC to be your cupcake taster partner in crime (but for the sake of my hips and diet, its prob better that I'm not there!).

    And No, I haven't gotten to Shopaholic and Baby, I'm just starting Shopaholic takes Manhattan (I'm like 5 years behind everyone else on these books!).

  69. Great giveaway! I heart cupcakes. I love red velvet with homemade cream cheese frosting. It's also really fun to put brownie mix in cupcake liners and put cream cheese icing on those, then sprinkle with cocoa powder. They are so yummy. People think they're really special but they're really just Duncan Hines brownie mix in liners! It's my little secret!
