cupcake papers

Garrett of Vanilla-Garlic and I are requesting you, cupcake fans, to try your hat at baking some creative cupcakes of your own.

How to participate

1. Create a cupcake
2. Post it or your blog or flickr account
3. Send your name, the name of your cupcake, and a link to (chockylit{at}gmail{dot}com) (protogarrett{at}yahoo{dot}com)
4. Do all this by January 26th

The round-up results will be posted on the 29th on both blogs. Then Garret and I will bake and one of our favorites and post about it at a later date.

I hope this inspires you to get creative and have some fun in the kitchen. And I am looking forward to seeing what interesting flavor combinations you come up with.

  6. Lise, please do!

    Same to you , Rachel…

    Sandra, your combination sounds intriguing. I am sure you will have a jolly time getting your pomegranate seeds out of their tiny cells.

  7. Dana, They aren’t mini cups… They are regular size. But I have had mini ones as well. I explain where I get them in the Cupcake Questions page.

  10. I was so excited to see this contest, and to explore the Vanilla-Garlic website. I’m now bummed, though because Vanilla-Garlic came up with the Earl Grey cupcake I was going to submit! Bummer. Looks like he made his before me, anyway. So much for the Caffeinated Cambric Cupcakes I’ll have to come up with something else. Maybe Pignoli or Chocolate Cherry Chipotle.

  13. Oh man – I missed this! Will this be a regular event?

  14. Oh my gosh – I will have put on weight just by looking at the photos! The range of flavor combinations is quite inspiring – although unless I am mistaken I did not see a vegetable cupcake in there!

  15. I love to get ideas from here, so I thought I would share a site I found with all of you. Shopbackersnook.com has some great cupcake liners. They also have hard to find stuff for backing cakes. Thanks again for all the great ideas.
