Have you entered our contest to win the new cookbook Martha Stewart's Cupcakes yet? If not, time is ticking - the deadline is today at 5 pm EST.
For those in New York, you can also win one of two copies tomorrow at our cupcake-filled cupcake picnic from 2-4 pm. Last year and the year before we had dozens upon dozens of delicious homemade and storebought cupcakes. Please join us for this not-to-be-missed event!
I'll have my iPhone with me so if you have any last minute questions or need directions, email us at cupcakestakethecake at gmail.com
As for me, I'm looking forward to trying local custom cupcake company Made With Love Cupcakes. We encourage other local bakeries/cupcake companies to bring your cupcakes to share with our readers! This is also a great chance to test out recipes and get your cupcake baking on.
Here's the latest news from our organizer Nichelle. Join the Cupcakes Take the Cake NYC Meetup Group to get updates on our events and RSVP (there will be plenty of cupcakes, though, so if you're in doubt, please show up).
I hear Saturday is the better of the two days this weekend, so hopefully we'll stay dry.
Keep in mind that the ground at Central Park may still be wet after a week of rain, so you may want to bring something to sit on that's waterproof. (maybe a yoga mat).
Anyway, we are giving away prizes including two copies of Martha Stewart Cupcakes, the brand new cupcake cookbook.
I obtained a park permit for Cedar Hill this picnic, so please note that we are going to be on the eastside of the park near 79th and 5th. As per park permit requirements, I can't have balloons or signs, but I will be wearing a pink "Cupcakes Take The Cake" T-shirt. You should be able to smell the buttercream frosting wafting in the area!
