Giveaway: Tickets to Phoenix Cupcake Love-In

UPDATE 10-4-10: We have a winner!

Congratulations to Katrina M! A big, sweet thank you to all who entered. If you didn’t win, I hope that you’ll still come to the event. The entire ticket price goes directly to the two charities. Hope to see you there!

Did you read my last post about the fun-tastic charity cupcake event happening on 10.10.10 at Hotel Valley Ho here in Phoenix?

No? Well, go read it (here)….I’ll wait.

Meanwhile, I might shop for one of these Tees.

Back? Good.

Now you know that the Cupcake Love-In, co-founded by pastry chefs Tracy Dempsey and Kelly Garcia, is a charity event to raise money for Singleton Moms and Safe Haven for Animals, and you know that 33 Valley bakers are competing for best cupcake bragging rights. And there’s a cupcake eating contest and a cupcake decorating station for the little ones. And it’s all for charity.

In the spirit of giving, I’ve bought 2 tickets to the event.

To win both tickets, all you have to do is leave a comment, telling me your favorite cupcake flavor. That, and you need to be able to go to the event on Sunday, 10.10.10, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the Hotel Valley Ho in Phoenix.

Fine print:
  • 1 entry per person
  • Barring natural disasters, broken bones, virus-infections, etc., you agree to attend the event if you win.
  • Deadline is midnight (PST) Sunday, 10-3-10.
  • 1 winner will be selected at random to receive both tickets, and will be announced on Monday, 10-4-10.
  • Tickets will be left for the winner at “will call” at the Hotel Valley Ho the day of the event (10.10.10)

So, go ahead. Tell me your favorite cupcake flavor.

    Most definitely lavender cupcakes!

    (I’d never tried them until a visit last year to Seattle’s Cupcake Royale. The combination of their sugar cookie tasting cupcake with lavender frosting has been my weakness ever since!)

    I tried a simple chocolate cupcake this past March at a bakery in LA that was so good — it had a subtle Irish Creme frosting that made it delicious! I’ve been trying to copycat that frosting for months now! 🙂

    Whatever cupcake that my lovely wife decides to make when she is in a baking mood becomes my new favorite every time…I love cupcakes and my wife…just not sure which I love more:D I am kidding.

    Today…I’m thinking of a rich, moist chocolate with some whipped-up fluffy cream cheese. Yeah, that sounds delish. But that’s just today. Too many possibilities to pick just one all-time favorite! I hope we don’t have to choose at the Love-In, that could be stressful! 😛

    Chai Tea with Cardamom Buttercream…the cupcake that will make you Live, Pray, Love and take your tastebuds to exotic locations!

    I have many favorites… The classic vanilla on vanilla, carrot, or a delectable red velvet. But one stands out: The Caramel Apple cupcake. Apple spice cake filled with caramel apple compote topped with caramel buttercream and drizzled with caramel sauce. Yum!
