A pretty giveaway!

I was very excited to see our 'Something in the Air' cupcake wraps featured in the new issue of Donna Hay Kids!

Donna and her team have styled a very pretty ballerina party, and look, they have made ballerina cupcakes with our wrappers topped off with vintage ballerinas from our dear friends Nathalie and Kathy at The Cupcake Wrapper Co. Hurrah!

I have a spare copy of Donna Hay Kids, so I am offering a little giveaway that also includes a pack of the cupcake wraps. To enter, please leave a blog or facebook comment, telling me your favourite cupcake flavour. A winner will be drawn at random next weekend. x

p.s. this post is not sponsored by Donna Hay, I am just a big fan is all.

During winter I like pumpkin chocolate chip cupcakes, but my go to party cake is a vegan margarita cupcake, with zesty icing, rimmed with rainbow decorating sugar. Yum, yum!

Joanne said...

A simple vanilla cupcake with extravagant icing and decorations. That is the best part of a good cupcake. Kids will always eat the topping and leave the cake :D

Virginia Mason said...

My favourite cupcake at the moment is a death by chocolate cupcake with pistachio coloured buttercream, with a sprinkling of pistachios on top. They look devine and taste heavenly!

Kylie and Amber said...

Ok I should not have read this post before dinner, as now all I wan't is a cupcake! Those cupcake wrappers are just stunning, my daughter only recently had a tea party for her birthday and they would have been perfect!

My favourite cup cakes are the little fairy cupcakes with the cream and jam with two tiny wings on either side, I used to love when I was little and my mum made those for me, especially when she packed one in my lunch, what a treat!

BabyMac said...

Anything with pink icing. Pink icing makes EVERYTHING better.

katetie said...

For birthdays you cant go past good old classic vanilla... yumm... with any coloured icing but sprinkles are a must!
But if its afternoon tea cupcakes then carrot with cream cheese icing... the vege component make them at least a little healthy :)

Carolyn McPherson said...

Definitely vanilla with some yummo butter cream (vanilla of course) icing on top. My cupcakes are sprinkled liberally with sprinkles of course!!

jane l said...

classic vanilla with vanilla frosting,filled with raspberry jam.

Six impossible things before breakfast said...

You can't beat chocolate!

Mary said...

I like carrot cake cupcakes best. Yum yum.

kaz said...

Triple chocolate cupcakes - aaah, just heavenly!

evie dear said...

easy peasy vanilla with buttery icing!

jane cameron said...

Rosewater cupcakes with cream cheese icing and pistachios. Deliciously different, divinely fragrant and look like love on a plate!

Carly said...

Lime syrup cupcakes - tart and treat-y... and we have a glut of limes, so it's wasteful not to, isn't it?

biggirlssweets said...

Initially I was planning to say a classic vanilla cupcake with vanilla butter cream icing...but then as I had a quick scan of the comments, I was transported back to my one and only red velvet cupcake experience, from Sprinkles, a cupcake shop in the US. O. M. G. Yes, that divine, I needed punctuation to emphasize. Deliriously moist, the colour of raw meat(stay with me), due to all the cochineal...there must be a vegan alternative...maybe beetroot juice... but heavenly and, yes the cream cheese 'frosting', IS the icing on the cake...*wink*...I'm so punny and funny. And yes, you'll all be very pleased to know that I do entertain myself immensely.

Kylie said...

I love vanilla cupcakes filled with a little lemon curd AND freshly whipped cream. Yummo!

Katherine said...

I mostly make plain melt and mix cupcakes these days (so quick and so yummy) but I've recently seen a recipe I'd like to try for chocolate and peanut butter cupcakes with a peanut butter frosting (American recipe). I think it's a contender for favourite flavour ever.

~ Kim ~ said...

I have made cho mud cake cupcakes and I can't get enough of them. I didn't even know there was a Donna Hay Kids mAg. How cool!

Leah said...

I would have to say white chocolate ♥

oscarlucinda said...

Nic said...

After seeing red velvet cupcakes I really, really want to try them. Oh and I also love hummingbird cupcakes. Super!

sascedar said...

my mum's fairy cakes are my fave- plain cupcakes with whipped cream and icing sugar dusted over the wings. yum!

Gorgeous Heart said...

Dark chocolate and lavender cupcakes are my ultimate favourite! Deliciously unique and exotic with a beautiful fragrance. I could live on these forever...! =D

Alana said...

A sticky date pudding cupcake which had the most delicious icing ....mmmm yum!!

Lilli boo said...

I am a fan of the 'vanilla' cupcake with 'vanilla icing' I have now treated both my son & daughter's class mates with the 'vanilla' cupcakes' to clebrate their respected birthdays and each class has loved them!! I'm also a fan of trying something new too :)

Alicia said...

Ginger would have to be my favourite!
