Hello, Cupcake Book Giveaway!


This is a giveaway to thank you guys. To thank you for always leaving such nice comments. I love blogging but you guys truly make it funner. Even those of you who are readers but don't comment. Thank you readers. For reading my blog. Trying my recipes. For sending me emails and letting me know how much your family loved my recipes. Thank you!

So, I am giving away a copy of "Hello, Cupcake" to 1 of my readers. I've looked thru the book and there are some pretty neat ways to dress cupcakes up. The Panda Bears really caught my eye. I'd have a hard time eating those cuties. And the spaghetti cupcakes....whoa! Amazing!

To enter, tell me what you'd like to see more of on Priscilla Bakes. Less family pictures? More food recipes? More giveaways? Tell me in a comment and you'll be entered for this contest.

Deadline is Sunday at 3 PM CST.




Have a fantastic weekend guys. I'll be back with a cookie post next!
Also check this youtube video out, I have been listening to this non-stop since I found it!

I'd love to see more recipes based on what you like when you eat out. I always wish I could duplicate something I like at a restaurant at home.

pxilated said...

I enjoy your family photos. It's nice to see other parts of your life besides what happens in the kitchen. :)

Lisa said...

I love your blog and pictures. I really liked how you made a dinner for your family(based on a restaurant). I am curious to see some other meals cooked for your large family. GreAT giveaway!

Amy said...

I'd love to see "A Week in the Life of Priscilla" - to see what you eat on a regular basis!

Melissa said...

I like the family pictures. Mayb more appetizer recipes?

Randi said...

I'm loving what i'm getting now! I love the recipes AND I love the pictures. I really liked the senior pictures too.

(just a question, have you checked out thepioneerwoman.com? your blog is like a mini version of that, you've got the photography and the cooking, you just need to add a diary. Well and homeschooling, don't know if that would happen...) ;)

Meg said...

Look at all those fun cupcakes! I love your blog....you can post more of it all!

Maddy said...

I love it! I would just suggest more giveaways =)


OOO! And maybe a way to search your recipes?

Cara said...

I think you should make some things from this book and share them with us! Also, I liked the recent remake of a restaurant meal--that's always a great thing to see. I enjoy the pictures!

It's your blog you should do what you want!!! I do LOVE your desserts thought!!!!

Toby said...

Your blog is awesome... just keep up the good work!!

auntlynda said...

Actually, I pretty much like your site as it is, especially this week, the recipes look fantastic! And those panda bears are adorable! But I'm not sure about the spaghetti ones. If I could request anthing, it would be lunchbox ideas, since I carry a lunch every day and am always struggling for ideas.

Avanika [YumsiliciousBakes] said...

Your blog's great as it is, and I love the personal touch you give with the pictures.
But everyone needs suggestions so that they can improve, so I'd suggest you make recipes out of that, and other books. And also more scratch recipes, as it becomes a problem for me and maybe other international readers to find the mixes and other stuff that you use.

Hope that helps, though your blogs already awesome :)

Karly said...

I'd like to see more recipes for beginners (or those cooking with kids). And, who doesn't like more giveaways! Thanks.

cdziuba said...

I love giveaways, and I also love and recipes that are Blue Ribbon winners...tried and true!

Meghan said...

This book is SO adorable!!! I wouldn't change the format of your posts at all- it's what makes your blog so special! Of course I wouldn't argue with more giveaways, especially since I've never won a giveaway on any blog :)

Olivia Coy said...

I'd really love to see some sweets shipped to Ohio, but since that's not going to happen I'd say that I like hearing about your family and seeing fun different food posts.! I LOVE the spagetti cupcakes and the corn on the cob ones!

shannon said...

More recipes.

chromiumman said...

more apetizer recipes

Tori said...

Wow - this is hard! I really can't think of too much I would change - but I do love giveaways - more of those are always good! =)

This looks like such a fun book!

Lauren said...

I love the recipes! Keep em coming! I would also love to see pictures of your kitchen! I don't know if you have already done that or not though.

Deb said...

I say put what you want on YOUR blog, it's your piece of the web. =)

dessie10 said...

Giveaways are nice and fun way to get see and try new things

Manuela said...

I can't think of anything... I think you're blog is wonderful and I'm very happy I found it. Recipes based on what you have eaten in a restaurant is great though. I would probably pick that. And of course, who doesn't like Giveaways? *laughs*

caitlin said...

I love your blog-don't change a thing!

Jessi said...

I just simply love your blog the way it is!! Keep up the great work. I am sure your family is very proud of you.

I think it's great! =:D I would like to see some more of the same but also maybe some things like side dishes (potatoes, rolls/breads, salads,etc.). I have a hard time sometimes figuring out what to make for that. I need inspiration! =:D

Blessings in Christ!

More quick, family friendly, easy weeknight meals...I have the hardest time figuring out what to cook for my family ~ I was raised by my father, and he cooked a lot but it was mainly "man" meals like hamburgers, hotdogs, and macaroni!

oona. said...

More photos of your awesome creations! Keep up the good work!
Thanks! foxsquirrelrabbit at gmail dot com

pitaharmon said...

I liked the youtube link. I never would have found that on my own, it was great. Anyway, don't enter me for this, I have this book and I want to say that its a beautiful book and the best thing is you don't need anything special to do these, they are super simple techniques. I've made the aliens, dogs, and the tiny little petite cupcakes (which by the way were the easiest and they sold out in 15 minutes at our school bake sale).
Whoever wins will love this book.

Carla said...

I just came across your website recently. I really love the balance you have in your blog. You do a little and not too much of everything-not leaning too much towards food or family. Keep up the great work!
