Birthday Giveaway

 UPDATE: the giveaway has ended and the winner is Rita Dean.  Thank you to everyone who participated and described some delectable-sounding cupcakes!
 
I glanced at the calendar and apparently it is time to celebrate the anniversary of the birth of some certain silver-haired cat lady once again. Hopefully cupcakes will ensue.  In the mean time, let's celebrate with a giveaway!

In the comments section, just tell me what would be your favorite flavor combo for a cupcake-- cake plus frosting.  For example, I would have to go with the classic dark chocolate cake and vanilla frosting, all made from scratch, of course!


At 9:00 Pacific Time tonight, I will draw one name from the comments section to win this original ACEO card, a collectible mini work of art! It is an ORIGINAL miniature watercolor painting from my 2009 series of 365 Cat Ladies.  It's called "Party Animals No. 6". It is in ACEO (Art Card Editions and Originals) format, which means that the artwork size is 2.5" x 3.5".

It is is hand-painted on super-heavy Arches 300-lb. acid-free cold-press watercolor paper with professional quality watercolor paints. Artist-initialed on front, signed, dated, and titled on back. The card will arrive in a rigid plastic sleeve for protection.


Please make sure that I have a way to contact you if you are the winner, such as a link to your blog or e-mail address included in the comment.
 You may send the info directly to my email if you don't want to make your contact info public.

Also, if you encounter trouble with the Comments feature, please contact me by e-mail
. If you visit www.susanfaye.net , you will find an email link.


Now bring on the cupcakes!!!

I recently made chocolate espresso cupcakes with vanilla espresso buttercream. They were divine! I'd say they were my favorite today. ;)

Happy Birthday wishes sent your way. You may contact me @ sleeplessinnhp@aol.com if I win. Thanks!

Happy Bday! My dream cupcake would be chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream frosting like my mother used to make. I can taste the sugar in my mouth right now!

I make a Magnificent Morning Muffin that is fullof fresh goodies like chopped apple, dry cranberries, nuts, coconut, whatever your heart desires. A cream cheese frosting would be fabulous!! I'm not a big fan of regular cake/icing.

I would start with an angel food cake, and on the top would be chocolate topped with baked meringue. and of course, a cherry on the top.

Funny you should ask this today..I bought two chocolate raspberry cupcakes yesterday at the farmers market. Those are my favourites, hands down. I would share one, but it would get rather dry by mail...

Happy birthday, and happy creating, from me and my nine cats...

Well, I do love carrot cake with cream cheese frosting, but just to be different I'll say red velvet cupcakes- the ones made with buttermilk and a dollop of butter rum flavor. Frosting is cream cheese with crushed pecans.

Okay, now I'm hungry.

Happy birthday!
