Is it true?


I am totally excited! Remember these? Well, the CH staff, just posted the May Cupcake Hero, and guess who was named? You guessed it..me! I have won tons of things from drawings, or bingo, or guessing the correct dessert, but this is the first that I have won from a recipe. Each month a theme is named, and then the CH staff works their butt off to choose a winner. You never really realize what a job it is until you are put in their shoes, or should I say kitchen.
A huge thanks to Laurie, Leigh, Joy, and Tempered Woman for the baking that they do each month and choosing just 1 to declare the Cupcake Hero. There are so many talented bakers in out there! So, now you may be asking, do you get anything other than the pride for this? And for this month the answer is yes! It has been said that I will receiving a prize pack from Askinosie. Unfortunately, I have never used this brand before, so I am super excited about it! If you haven't tried this stuff, I hear that it is the "mac daddy" of all cocoa and get your butt over there and get some for yourself!
Don't forget about July's Cupcake hero hosted by the lovely ladies Clara and Nikki. So, go ahead start thinking Red, White, and Blue!
