February is the month of lovers, Valentine’s Day and all the crap that goes with it. (Although, it is the month of Ground Hog’s Day, which is a big freaking deal here in PA. But, I couldnt think of a good theme to go with that…sorry Punxsutawney Phil.) Pink and red as far as the eye can see. Disappointed ladies all across the globe. I will be perfectly honest, I hate V-Day. I think its a commercial trap. Making partners think they have to go above and beyond on this ONE day to let their sig. other know they love them. I think its utter shite. I would much rather know that I am loved on the other 364 days a year, thank you very much.
I picked up a stellar sidekick for the month too, Oh yes, I did! Please welcome, the one, the only, Tempered Woman (TW) as my very cool, and lushy co-host. She and I will happily pick apart all the entries with glee. Thanks for agreeing TW! I couldn’t do this month without you babe!
In honor of this crappy holiday, the theme ingredient for this month will be:
The theme ingredient for February is: Liquor
Go get out your hooch and bake us the booziest cupcakes ever! TW and I will be glad to try as many as possible. And probably drink a little along the way. Well, not probably, we will. And not a little, most likely a lot. Go forth and bring on the drunken cupcakes!
If you want to participate, send me your cupcakery to superslush AT gmail.com AND temperedwoman AT gmail.com by February 23rd. Please send all entries to BOTH addresses, people!
- Your blog name and URL*
- Link to your Cupcake Hero entry
- Picture of your cupcakery (250 width is prefered)
Remember: The theme ingredient, liquor, must be used in the cake, frosting or filling.
Winner receives a super cool Cupcake Hero t-shirt. Nothing says “Im a Winner!” like a t-shirt. TW has offered up a gift pack of her own and I think she mentioned Penzeys. (I think shes just trying to out do me.) Lucky bastards!
I reply to every entry via email. If you dont get a “thank you” email from me, I did not get your entry. Please send it again, or say “HEY! Did ya get my cupcake or not?” I want to make sure everyone that bakes for the Hero is included!
*If you dont have a blog just email me your name, recipe, picture and notes and I will post it for you.
