What a Day for a Birthday
It's that time of the year again. My birthday is coming up at the end of this month. At my age, this is an event that I'd like to see quietly pass me by but my kids won't let me forget. So I figured why not ask you all for an extra-special gift to boost my morale? Here's the deal....I want you to invent the cupcake I will eat at my birthday party. Leave a comment below nominating at least 2 ingredients (maximum of 4) like bacon and maple syrup; or pear, cinnamon and chocolate, and I will pick one ingredient combination to whip up my special birthday cupcake. To sweeten the deal, if I pick your ingredient combination, I'm going to make you 12 cupcakes of the same variety!
Contest ends Sunday July 17 and is open to anyone anywhere but you have to be in Paris to pick up your cupcakes. You can enter as many times as you'd like. Winner will be chosen entirely at random by me and my cupcake cravings! The winner's cupcakes will be available for pick-up starting 28 August and offer valid for 1 year. For duplicate ingredient nominations, the first person who suggests the combination wins. The winning cupcake will be revealed the week of July 25.
Thanks for playing and looking forward to a tasty sweet treat for my birthday this year!
