Oh yeah.  That's right.  We've finally gone and done it.  My boyfriend and I have been crowned Cupcake Heroes for the month of April with our "Chocolate Moose" entry from the What's New, Cupcake? book.  So what if the winner was chosen by a Random Number Generator?  And so what if we had a 5 in 9 chance of winning?  A win is a win, and this one was EPIC!!!  Special thanks to Mike for selecting that particular cupcake for us to decorate for the contest.  Wouldn't you know that's the one design he absolutely had his heart set on making?  :)

Stay tuned for more Cupcake Hero news for the month of June, when *yours truly* will possibly be guest hosting the event.  Probably jumping the gun here, but I might already have a theme ingredient in mind.  Hats off to CB of I ♥ Cuppycakes! for being our gracious leader and humble Cupcake Hero host thus far!  We guest hosts will do our best to do you proud! 

Now for another fine pick by my sweetie from Hello, Cupcake! by Karen Tack and Alan Richardson (which we now own, along with What's New, Cupcake?-- thanks to him): 

Butterfly Cupcakes

Verdict: not as easy as the authors make it look.
 Sure, there's detailed instructions and pictures. But candy melts can be frustratingly uncooperative.  Guess there's a reason they're book authors and we're novices! :)

Incidentally, we made these last weekend--before the winner of Cupcake Hero was announced.  Though now that we've been declared winners, we just might have to make a few more selections from the books to commemorate the occasion.  Any special requests???


  1. Woot! I got my prizes yesterday and they are totally awesome!

  2. Congrats and those butterflies are byoooootiful! You really deserved this and I know you'll love the prizes. I don't own either book or else I'd definitely make requests.

  3. Congratulations! You are definitely a Cupcake Hero -- your cupcakes are gorgeous!

  4. Congrats!!
