You may have noticed that for the past month, I’ve linked several cupcake posts up to Hoosier Homemade’s Cupcake Challenge.
And in case you didn’t know, I love those books
The thought of my cupcakes being judged by their very author causes a weird tug of war in my brain.
Half of me is all “Oh no, you big fat loser…what were you thinking entering a CONTEST? This man is a published AUTHOR. He’s a cupcake expert. He will scoff at your amateur-ness”
And the other half of me is all “Oh Em Gee, a FAMOUS person is looking at my cupcakes…..which in turn, makes ME famous!! Obviously, I need to go buy a tiny dog, a big purse, and start looking up real estate listings in the Kardashian neighborhood”.
But all jokes aside, I’m really just very nervous. I’m not a contest enterey person, and this whole thing really forced me out of my comfort zone.
And you know what? I scoped out my competition, and there were a ton of really good entries.
It’s crazy how much cupcake related talent is floating around out there on the web. So, if I don’t win, I’m totally prepared for it. Besides, I’m used to it. I’ve never really won anything in my life.
Except this one time in the first grade when I won the cake walk at the school Halloween Fair. But really, I was just really good at walking slow and watching for the teacher to hit the pause button.
Hey, don’t judge me. When it comes to free cake, there are no rules.
But besides that, I’ve never won one thing.
Except for last Valentines Day when my friend K bought me a scratch off lotto ticket and it said I won $25. And when I went to cash it in and the lady scanned it, it turned out that I won $50.
But really, that was just luck. K picked out the ticket, not me.
Okay……so maybe I have won a couple of things.
But those weren’t cupcake related, so they totally don’t count.
Anyways, let’s take a look back at my month of cupcakes, shall we?
I would like to give a huge thank you to Hoosier Homemade for holding the competition and for inviting me to join. I really had a lot of fun coming up with ideas, and I loved seeing everyone else’s entries.
Best of luck to everyone who entered!
I’ll be posting another super simple Dinner and Dessert tomorrow, so be sure to check back.
