How was your weekend? I’ve got some yumminess baking as we speak, and another one in the works, both of which I can’t wait to share with you! Since I know how passionate most of you are about baking and caking, I thought I would take some time to tell you about the “Cupcake Couture” Cupcake Contest I’m co-judging over at fabulous Icing Designs right now, alongside Jill from Modern Cupcake. If you haven’t had the joy of discovering Icing Designs yet, let me tell you about how gorgeous their hand-illustrated and hand-glittered invitations, cards, cupcake flags and gift tags are! Behind these creations are the two super-smart and sweet-as-can-be women, Melissa & Kellie. In addition to designing and creating these goodies, they also write an inspirational party and all-things-pretty blog, and are currently celebrating its 1 year anniversary–what better way to celebrate than by hosting this sweet contest?
Here’s a little bit more about the contest, and a link below to read all details over on their lovely blog. Melissa & Kellie explain:
We are celebrating the one year anniversary of our blog this week…so we figured we better do it in “style”, couture style that is! You may have noticed that we have a thing for sweets, cupcakes in particular! Last spring we created a line called “Cupcake Couture”. It has been a collection that has been very near and dear to our hearts! We thought that it would be so much fun to bring that line to life! So, let’s get creative! We want you to send us a picture of your most “couture” (homemade) cupcake.
On March 16th we will announce the “Cupcake Couture” winner! Prizes will include a fabulous gift certificate to Layer Cake Shop, 12 Cupcake Couture petite invites and 12 coordinating note cards. Good luck, now get decorating…we can not wait to see what you come up with!

Well, my oven timer just went off, so that’s my cue…see you soon!
PS. Melissa & Kellie were sweet enough to interview me a few months back. If you’d like to read that interview, you can view it here.
