Win a box of Cakespy's CBGB cupcake cards!


Mini watercolor Tae Kwon Do with Cupcakes by Cakespy


We were so thrilled to get a whole package of cards from Jessie Oleson of Cakespy fame last week. She sent us so many that we're giving YOU the chance to win a box of her CBGB Cupcake cards. You have until April 30th to leave a comment WITH YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS* telling us who you'd send a cupcake card to and why. (If we can't contact you, we can't send you the cards. *Alternately, you can link to a URL that has your email address clearly labeled.) One entry per person. Winner will be randomly chosen on May 1st. Happy card sending, and be sure to check out Cakespy all over the web: Cakespy.com, Cakespy on Flickr, and Cakespy's cards and artwork for sale on Etsy.

Here are two cute photos from Cakespy's Flickr account of the card in question, but this is for a box of I believe 8 (it's sealed so I didn't open it).

I would send a card to my mom. She lives in California and I am in Denver. I have been away from her since July 06. This is the longes twe have been apart. I am going to culinary school though, so it is worthwhile. I would send the card to remind her how much I love her ans what an amazing mom she is.

I would send a card to my sister.
She just drove the length of the US with her 10 year old son and dog to move to a new house that she's seeing for the first time today and buying tomorrow, and I think she can use all the support she can get!

Amy said...

I'm graduating with my Master's next month and I'll need to send thank you cards to people for the rad presents they hopefully will give me. Also, my BFF is getting married, and I will certainly need to give her a card. She'll be getting enough boring wedding cards from others, I need to up the ante!

Amy said...

Darnit, it didn't use my url.

Elise said...

I would send a card to my friend to thank her for riding with me 34 miles round-trip on our road bikes to Costa Mesa to try out a new cupcake bakery. It was worth the ride!

Kate said...

i would send it to my roommate, we spent a full day this summer on a nyc cupcake tour, rating our favorite cupcakes! sugar sweet sunshine was the definite favorite!

I'd sent a cupcake card to President Bush & let him know if he ate more cupcakes he would find peace & in turn would stop this war & the other injustices he's been a part of during his presidency!

Elizabeth said...

I would send a card to by friend Saysha, who once did a cupcrawl with me and everytime we visit each other we share a cupcake or 2. It's become our special thing, even though we're far apart we can still eat a cupcake and think of the other person.

Ambjer said...

I think I'd send the card to my best friend who moved to Florida a few years ago. You know, to show I still think of her and tell her about my cake [and cupcake] business and all that junk that's going on.

I love CakeSpy's art--and this is one of my all-time faves of hers!!

I would send a card to my friend C who is now at home with a 2.5 year old little boy and a brand new little girl. She doesn't have time to make all the cupcakes she used to, so this would brighten up her day!

I would send a card to my best friend. She loves the Cakespy artwork just as much as I do!

I would send a car to my best friend, Tatiana, who is now a cupcake maker! She's living in Carbondale and I live in Brazil, so this year I did'nt had a chance to give her a happy birthday hug, and a cupcake card woul be just perfect.

I would lovingly cram a couple of cards into my aunt's mailbox. We're not related by blood, but we're close enough to have shared our miseries with each other. Less than a year ago, my 'aunt' was diagnosed with diabetes. Because of her diabetes, she's had to cut back on all the wonderful food-stuffs she used to indulge on. I want her to see that she can have fun with cupcakes without having to eat them.

I would send my card to my older sister in California. She's completely her Masters there while I am about to finish my BA in Michigan. Being away from her is hard since we grew up maintaining a close relationship. Both my sister and I absoultely love cupcakes! It would be a bit more meaningful...as well as an inside joke...to send her cupcake cards :)

Casie said...

I would send the cards to my bridesmaids as a thank you for being a part of my wedding this coming October. :)

k_purls2 said...

I would send the card to my mom anonymously to see if she'd know it was from me. She used to call me Cupcake when I was little and she loves to bake.

Or, I would send it to the Cupcake Shoppe in Toronto, the first place I saw a boutique dedicated to my favorite food!

sorry from the note above, kpurls email is k_purls2@yahoo.com

OK now I"m being darn right greedy, but that's what cupcakes do to me! I also want to send a card to Downtown Atlantic. I was visiting over the summer and in the midst of a brutally hot day, me and my two sons stumbled upon the restaurant. Man, that red velvet cupcake saved my life. I just want to say thanks.

ann said...

ok Id send it to my husband and his job , he's been in Iraq for almost a year and another year to go, since I opened my cupcake store up a year ago he knows Im nuts about all things cupcake related so this would top the cake, he hangs up all my fun or musical cards he gets to me and everyone in his shop looks at them like what cool cards did your wife send to you know so it would be something totally different and not obscene..lol..hey I got to send him something for his imagination you know, for him to hang up.

porcalina said...

I would send one to my friends who are too far away for me to ship real cupcakes to :(

Nevin Martell said...

My fiancee and I just decided that we're going to do cupcakes instead of cake at our wedding, so I'd send the card to her as a little "Hooray for us."

Laura N. said...

I would have to send a card to one of my best friends. I've been telling her all about cupcakes and their awesomeness and i would definitely have to send her a card to say how much i admire her patience and willingness to listen to me rambling on and on about cupcakes. A cakespy cupcake card would be perfect!

Tracy said...

I would send this card to my old roomie. We lived together in Manhattan for 10 years (and loved CBGBs) but have since both moved to separate cities and settled down. We still stay in touch, though!

I'd send a card to my best friend Cathy. I love cupcakes, and every year for my birthday, she has made me a homespun batch. When we traveled to LA, we made a special trip to find a cupcake boutique, since we don't have any at home. She'd laugh so hard at getting a cupcake card from me!

chimaerandi said...

ahh! The above address is randi.r.paul@gmail.com

Paula(bear) said...

I would send a cupcake care to my 'sista from another mother', my best friend since we were kids - it's almost her birthday (and her wedding anniversary on the same day!), and we live too far away from each other so I miss her lots. I want her to know I'm thinking of her. Plus the last day we spent together when I was visiting, we ate cupcakes and giggled like time had never passed... I love ya girl!

I'd send one to my family in Okinawa. They love to give and recieve things like this. I'd send one with my "pupcakes" to thank them for the amazing Kimono & endless supply of japanese candy they gave me last year.:)

I would send a cupcake card to my old roommate. She's just starting to get interested in baking, and I recently gave her a cupcake stand for a bridal shower gift. The card could be inspiration for her!

Dana B said...

I would send a card to some of my friends who have been very supportive of the launch of my business. Their encouragement has kept me going - the first year of a new business is hard (but exciting)

slush said...

I would send one to each of my CH and TWD crew. I wouldnt be able to keep up with either event without the awesome people I have helping me. Love you guys!

Ashley said...

I would frost each one with Vanilla Bean Buttercream and eat them with a glass of cold milk. I'd save one to frame.

chaitee said...

I'd send one to my husband, so that when we got it in the mail, I could hang it on the wall and keep it.

I'd send a cupcake card to my best friend and start a haiku challenge with her. (A haiku a day via snail mail, every day for a week or two.)

I would send one card to each person that I know, starting with my sister, who lives much to far away from me.

I would send a card to my mom in the Philippines. She is afraid to ride airplanes to come visit me here in the U.S.

Sequana said...

I'd send them to all my girly granddaughters. Then when they visit, I'd make some real ones.

BMoreSweet said...

I would send a cupcake card to Hillary Clinton, because she could use a little LOVE out there on the campaign trail, and the martial arts lady on the design is one tough mamma, as she is. Then I would tell her it's a chain postcard and please send it along to future President Obama.

BMoreSweet@gmail.com!

to my bff who decorates cakes & makes the yummiest cupcakes!

Tina @ scoopalicious said...

I would send a card to my little one who could make, frost, and eat cupcakes every day of her little life.

Jessica "Su Good Sweets" said...

Probably my mom, because she sent me the sweetest birthday card, saying how blessed she was to have me as a daughter and a friend (and we share sweets all the time!)

Cookie Jill said...

I'd send one to Barack Obama. (with a little "dough" slipped inside.) Seems he needs a little cheering up tonight after losing the PA primary.

rebekah said...

I would send a card to my sister (along with a batch of cupcakes I made). My fiance and I are in the process of moving from the east coast to Texas. A couple months ago we made chocolate cupcakes (some with a chocolate buttercream frosting, some with vanilla icing...I make the cupcakes, my fiance makes the icing) for a famly birthday party. My sister is an amazing cook, but does not bake. When she ate one of my cupcakes she said oh my gosh, these are so good, it takes like you bought them from a bakery. Then she joked with me and asked if it was really necessary that we move. My nephew turns one in December. If we can't be there for his birthday party, we're definitely going to send her a batch of our cupcakes!

I'd send a card to my sister. She's 5 LONG hours away in Virginia and I miss her terribly. We've been long life buddies, even went to the same college. We both LOVE cake - we can devour a whole cake ourselves in a day (who am I kidding...in an hour!)

Megan said...

I would send a card to my best friend in Reno. And one to my
mom-in-law! Surprise them both with a real cute card!!!

peg graham said...

I'd send CUPCAKE CARDS to ALL of my 'cuppy cake' friends...which is a whole bunch! Because they are SWEET and Love Cupcakes, like moi.

pick me...k?

Clevermonkey said...

It has been so long since I mailed a card, I'm not sure if I remember how... perhaps, it would be best to walk one over to my neighbour's house with a plate of welcome to the neighbourhood cupcakes (which actually would be welcoming me to the hood).

I'd send a card to my cousin, Stephanie. She's 16 and she's my best friend in the whole world. She lives 4.5 hours away from me, and I only get to see her 2 or 3 times a year. Last summer she stayed at my house for a month, and I really got her loving cupcakes as much as I do. She even started her own cupcake blog! She's so adorable. A cupcake card would totally make her day :)

ambrosia ananas said...

I would send one to my friend for her birthday.

TJ and Mandi said...

I would send them to my friends with a picture of "my little cupcake" inside -- of course I would try to get a shot of her karate chopping some cupcakes - because that would be awesome! Definitely her personality. She was born 5 months ago today! Yeah for 6 month old birth announcements . . . better late than never right!

I would give one to my honey who loves cupcakes almost as much as I do!

jmcquary said...

Hiiiiiiiiiii-ya! I would sent this card to my cupcake-loving cohort Lyndsy. She's getting married on May 17th and I can't attend her wedding. She's having cupcakes instead of a cake and I'm so sad I'm missing it.

My card would have to go to my sister. We're a cupcake-eating team -- she only eats the top part but I'm happy to eat the bottom part, because I'm kinda fond of her.

My cupcake card would go to my sister Deb . She puts incredible effort into all her baking for us. She would love the cupcake card.

I think I would try and send one to all the beautiful cupcake fiends here on the big ol' internerd. One of those cute little cards is something every cuppie fanatic should own.

Piper said...

I would send a card to my twin sister. We spent four years in college together hunting down the best cupcakes on the west coast, and attending shows together- frankly, the cupcakes on that card remind me of us! It would be even more meaningful because I moved to Australia with my new husband 4 months ago-it's the longest we've ever been apart, and so hard not to see my best friend. The 26th of April marks the first birthday we've ever celebrated without one another, and a card like that would crack her up for sure.

Bunny said...

I'd send one to my best friend. She just found out she's preggie! :) And she's been waiting for this a long time! And since she's a cupcake lover, she'd certainly love this card! Thanks :)

familiabencomo said...

Well, it goes without question that I would send a card to my best friend in NYC. We moved there just after college in the early 90's (went to high school & college together!). We have been to CBGB together quite often (more than I wanted in fact). She is my funky friend who always knew the ins & outs of the music scene & I was the one who had no idea what she was talking about (imagine blond girl from Texas clutching purse amid a crowd of rockers). I lived there for 5 years, now in California. Krissy is still there, still cool.

Thank you for the opportunity to win something. LOVE your blog.

My daughter is going on a three-week trip to England in June. We are supposed to supply three letters/cards for the group leaders to hand out over the course of the trip. Lily is my creative assistant in the kitchen and would get a big kick out of receiving these cards!

Brianne said...

I would send the CBGB cards to my husband for many reasons. I love him, he loves cupcakes (and me), & he just got rid of his favorite CBGB shirt. I would love CBGB memorobilla to replace this guy who continues to try (and win) at out-serving me, and being so much fun to share life with.

Hannah Manzana said...

I would send a card to my dear friend Charity. She is a 2nd grade teacher and has been having a hard time the past few weeks with work and her singleness. I know this card would cheer her up! She is so special to me(and a fun cook!)and has known me loger than anyother friend. I would tell her that her friendship warms my heart and that I pray for her often and that she ROCKS!!! :)

lina said...

I love those cards! If I would love to send one to my grandmother in Japan. My grandfather recently passed away and she is so lonely living by herself now.

Christina said...

I'd send one to my dad. He's an avid reader of my blog (we discuss my current post whenever we talk!) and would get a kick out of it!

pamelamunsell said...

I would send a card to my best friend Sandy who lives 600 miles away. :'( These cards would be perfect because not only is she a SWEET person, but as a friend she takes the CAKE!

I would also tuck one into my hubby's lunch because he's my CUPCAKE.

Christine said...

I would send a card to my little cupcake, my daughter! My 4 year old loves to get cards and this would be an awesome suprise!

Sue said...

I would send a cupcake card to my favorite librarian at the local public library. Like a cupcake, she is small and very sweet. And due to personnel cutbacks, she probably has more work than ever, in addition to her usual responsibilities at home. So I think she could use and enjoy a sweet little note of appreciation.
