“Thank you for being awesome!” Giveaway


The winner is Kelly!


Thank you so much to everyone!  I appreciate you so much!


I need to start by saying that you guys ROCK!

18 days ago, I changed my name.  I was once the baker formerly known as The Sugar Tree.  But thanks to you all and your wonderful support, I am now whole-heartedly “The Shaky Baker.”  In a little over 2 weeks, you guys have gotten my number back up to where it was when I was The Sugar Tree.  You guys are the best.

So to say “thank you” for your overwhelming support, I’m doing a giveaway.  And since I’ve had 2 weeks to shop for things, it is a cuteness overload, I tell ya.  If you don’t like cute, this ain’t the giveaway for you.

And I went with a cupcake theme.  Not to make them.  But to decorate with them.  Stare at them longingly.  I mean, who doesn’t like to look at cupcakes?

This giveaway will include all of the following:

  • 8-inch cupcake mini cake stand
  • 4-inch “Have a Cupcake” pink cupcake stand
  • Ceramic cupcake measuring spoons
  • “Live, Love, Laugh” mini ceramic vases
  • 9oz bottle Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla (just because it’s yummy)
  • Pink cotton ruffle half apron
  • Cupcake spoon
  • Cupcake with sprinkles spatula
  • Writing set with mini notebook, magnetic list pad and chunky pen
  • 1 1/2 inch and 1/2 inch cupcake ribbon
  • 2 packages of cupcake bags
  • Cupcake notebook
  • Cupcake ziploc baggies
  • Cupcake stamp kit (works great to use with food coloring instead of ink)

It has sprinkles on the back!

Just looking at all this cuteness brings me great joy.

So, who would like me to send them all of this sugary-inspired goodness?


1) Make sure you “like” my Facebook page (if you don’t already)

2) Share this giveaway on your Facebook page, twitter, blog, scream it from your roof…any of those will be great! (probably the first ones more than that last one, though)

3) There is a small restaurant in my area that has been very supportive of me and my baking.  I would like to help them out as they try to grow online.  Please go “like” their Facebook page – The Mt. Pleasant Grille

4) Once you have done those 3 things, come comment ON THIS POST telling me about the best cupcake you’ve ever eaten.  It can be one you’ve made.  Don’t be modest.

That’s it!

One entry per person. US residents only.  (I promise I’ll do an international one soon!)  I’ll keep it open until Monday, February 20th at 5pm CST.  I’ll randomly pick a winner and announce it Monday night.  Tuesday is my birthday, so it will be a great birthday present to be able to send all this fun stuff to someone!

Good luck, and THANK YOU again for all your support.

Hope you have a SWEET 3-day weekend!
