Cake Week Voting Day 4: The Cakes formerly known as Cupcakes

Hehe... you get it?  You know, like

The artist formerly known as Prince?  Except I think he's back to being Prince now.  Someone tell me, this question will stay with me all day!

Makes me chuckle sometimes, these early morning jokes I have with myself...

But now for serious stuff, today is day four of...  *doo-doo-dah-doooo!*

And yes, our Cake contestants are all formerly known as Cupcakes. But we've also got some great sponsors, formerly known as... well, as great sponsors!  Let's hear what our readers can win, Johnny!

First up, we've got an artist formerly known as my creative sister, CraftyMaiden13!  

Specializing in mixed media and home decor, Crafty Maiden has got it going on over at her shop!  The things she does with crayons, I swear, it's like magic.  Her current favorite medium is BUTTONS, and in honor of that love, she is gifting us with this absolutely adorable Tea Tray!

Our second sponsor is the generous Jen from The Coin Laundry!

Gen Jen, as I like to call her just made up now, specializes in hand-done silk screened baby clothes and housewares.  Her inks & solvents are earth friendly, so you can love all of these awesome products with a clear conscious!  She is offering up today, for one lucky reader, this great kitchen-themed Tea Towel!

Jen also wanted me to tell you "You're Welcome" for getting that song stuck in your head.  So, You're Welcome.

To be the lucky winner of these two prizes (yes, that's right, you win BOTH of them!), you've got to enter.  And here's how you enter today:

  • Leave a comment here telling me your favorite cake from today's contestants.  Your name would also be helpful. - One Vote
  • Like The Crafty Maiden and The Coin Laundry on Facebook through their shops.  Leave a comment telling me you did so - One Vote Each

  • Facebook/Tweet about this giveaway, using #CakeWeek2012 and linking back to this post - Leave a comment telling me you did so, and I'll give you Two Votes

Now, I know what you're thinking.  "That's a lot of votes!"  And you're right.  But I'm a giver like that.  Plus, with these delicious looking cakes formerly known as cupcakes awaiting you just below, you're going to need all the votes you can get.  Feel free to split votes between different contenders, if you just can't decide!

  3. For me it's a toss-up between the mocha cupcakes with espresso buttercream and the chocolate chip cookie dough ones, but after much deliberation, I think the mocha (cup)cake absolutely MUST be the winner.

    By the way, you really must invite Kara and me over sometime during cake week. Or some time each day. Your call. ;)

  4. Lemon Berry. Fo Shizz. It's so springy and light!

  5. Chocolate chip cookie dough! Because a vat of that right now sounds AMAZING!

  6. lemon berry is my vote. ps- have you seen the hunger games cupcakes? google it!

  7. Lemon berry is also my vote. Just feeling fruity today.

  8. I'm voting for the Lemon Berry Cupcakes and I also pinned the melted crayon cosmic explosion from crafty maiden!
