I won!!!


Remember my Pumpkin Graveyard Cupcakes that I baked for Cupcake Hero? Well I also entered them into the Spooky Halloween Competition run by Little Betsy Baker (which is an awesome shop by the way, that I totally recommend). I was thinking that my little cupcakes might be a bit too creepy to win a cupcake decorating competition - but I just got an email to tell me that I won!!! I am over the moon and ecstatic! In fact I would be screaming and jumping around but I just put Zoe to bed and it would be madness to wake her up.

So not only do I get the prestige of winning this awesome competition, I also get a Wilton 50 piece tool caddy, just like this...


Oh yeah! That little baby is worth $150 AUD so it is a pretty little prize indeed. Okay I will stop going on like a lunatic now - I just had to share my excitement with you all.

Well done Alicia! I have looked at your blog before and found it quite mouth watering...your creations look divine! Great prize too :) Thanks for welcoming me to bloo\gging land, I have NO idea and will definitely be bombarding you with questions I am sure. Starting with how I get my little pic to pop up on other people's profiles? Any clues? Hope you and Z are well... Carla x
