The results are in...
The winner has been announced for the cupcake skewer contest over at Pizzazzerie...
it wasn't me. *sniffle*
(go here for the results and to see some of the other "fabulous entries")!!
that means I can now share all of my entries with you. Yea!!!
Before I do...
let me explain my approach:
"Create something using innovative presentation & practicality".
I wanted anyone to be able to duplicate these, as well as make them easily consumable at a REAL party.
I focused on "out-of-the-box" presentation.
I didn't go for "fancy" artwork, etc.
I was thinking about my readers and how to inspire each of you to try your hand at making these.
my favorite entry...
• Oreo Cupcake Skewer •
LOVED using an oreo cookie as the platform & then topping it off with a mini oreo.
(The cupcake decor was inspired by Judy from my favorite cupcakery...Cupcake Delights)
a couple of skewers to gear us up for the upcoming season...
• a Halloween themed mini ice cream cone cupcake skewer •
These are SUPER easy to make...see this post.
I created a custom wrap for the cone & skewer - (easily adapted for ANY occasion)
• another Halloween one •
I printed "Boo!" onto tissue paper, wrapped the cupcake & tied with a bow.
(Again, super easy...anyone can do this and this can easily be adapted for ANY party theme)
• a little ladybug themed cupcake skewer •
Altering a regular sized cupcake liner adds a little pizzazz...
the possibilities are endless.
the whole cupcake skewer concept provides limitless creative thinking.
I'm so glad I participated in the contest.
A big huge thanks to Pizzazzerie for hosting it...
as well as a big hug to Bakerella for being guest judge.
My creative wheels have been turning because of it!
I can't wait to see more of the other entries as Courtney posts them...
Let's make it a great week everyone!
Hope you all enjoyed your weekend!
KEEPING IT REAL
I'm SO disappointed I didn't win.
(you might find me in the closet with a box of tissues).
No. I'm just kidding.
(not about the closet & tissues...only about the "SO" disappointed)
I'm actually devastated.
No. I'm just kidding about that too...
it was only a cupcake contest for crying outloud! right?? *a tear-laden wink*
