Bring on the fame and fortune…


In the past week or so, I was bestowed with 3 awards. Imagine my delight! What makes it even more special is that they came from people of blogs I adore. I am still shocked you guys read my nonsense. Seriously…so is my family.


Gretchen of Canela & Comino bestowed upon me a “You Make My Day” award. Gretchen has become a good friend in the past couple months. I just love reading all about her adventures in Peru. Her stories are often very humorous and her recipes are excellent. Thank you Gretchen, you totally made my day! Now, I am to send this one off to 10 more people who make my day… Lets see… Chelle, April, LT, Carrie, Nikki, Mary, Marilla, Jess, Marie and Tammy. Please pass it on to 10 people who make your day!


Chelle of Sugar & Spice and Mary of Shazam in the Kitchen, both, bestowed upon me the E for Excellent Award. WOW! I am so thrilled you guys think my blog is deserving of this award! I would say the same right back at you both. When I started this silly blog last summer, I had no idea it would become such a big part of my life. Nor did I have any idea how many awesome friends I would make. For someone who is considered kind of a hermit, thats been HUGE for me. So thank you, thank you, thank you.

I would like to pass this E on to…

Tempered Woman, of course. I can always count on her to crack me up and put me in my place, often at the same time. πŸ˜‰

Jessie of Cakespy, her cakewalks are always an awesome read. Her inventive baking is always good for some inspiration and her art is wicked.

Steph of A Whisk and A Spoon. Her cupcakes AND photos of cupcakes are top notch. It does not get better than Steph when it comes to cupcake porn. Queen of Cupcake Porn, how do ya like that title Steph? πŸ˜‰

Joy of JoytheBaker, just go take a look at her blog, and you will instantly know why she is on this list. Her photos are recipes speak for themselves. Her podcasts are super cool, please check them out!

Clara of I Heart Cuppycakes. She is always trying new ideas and techniques. She is hilarious, too. Which is always good in my book.

Last but certainly not least ThePensBlog. This blog is day to day updates on all things Pens. It is funny as all f’n hell. Its the very first blog I read every single morning. Sometimes offensive, always hilarious, just the way I like it. The photoshops are particularly killer.


Lastly, while I am tooting my own horn, I am going to mention my blurb in The Pittsburg City Paper. Cupcake Hero is definitely reaching the masses, slowly but surely. Very cool!

  1. Oh my~ I so don’t deserve the Excellent Blog award. Maybe the sarcastic pain-in-the-you-know-what award for sure.
    I think it is uber-fabulous that they wrote you up for the local paper. Make sure to frame your 15 minutes hotstuff~ You put that baby up in the kitchen! What do the boys think about their mom being a celebrity?? πŸ˜‰

    OK, second time I post and I hope this one shows up. As I said in the past post, I live in Mexico and dont have a blog and would like to participate in Cupcake Heroe. Is it OK?

  3. Jaime- Thanks!

    Steph- Glad you liked the title, I didnt want to offend you! I meant it in a totally good way. Not the gross icky way. LOL

    April- Thanks babe!

    TW- I have a stack of them, havent framed one though. haha

  4. Thank you so much for the mention!! It made me so happy, since I always love reading your site too–you have a great sense of humor which comes across in your writing, it always makes me smile. Plus, you’re hardcore about cupcakes to the point of considering a cupcake tattoo–you’re pretty fine in my book! πŸ™‚ Congrats on all those mentions, truly! Sweetness takes over the world!
