Cupcake Round-Up Results!

Monday, January 29, 2007

Wow, Cheryl and I received a lot of great entries for the round-up! At first we were worried that we might not get any and that it was going to be a bust. Then they slowly began to trickle in, and before you knew it we were getting dozens of e-mails from cupcake enthusiasts everywhere! We have about 60+ cupcake entries here!

I had to say I was surprised at the range of ideas and the amount of creativity that went into them. Classic flavors, crazy combos, and even diet specific cupcakes stepped into the spotlight. Avocados, ginger, berries, vanilla, mung beans, bananas, buttercream, caramel, booze, garam masala, and of course chocolate are just some of the flavors you'll find in the round-up

So here are the results you cupcake fiends! Cheryl and I will be making our favorite recipes over the next few days and posting the results; I hope that some of these inspire you to do the same!

Note: Sorry if there are any snafus in the linking, as this many pictures in one post seems to have thrown blogger for a loop, so sometimes they might not work. Refreshing the page seems to help. Let me know if it won't work and I will try to get to it ASAP.

  1. Oh, how many delicious beauties!

    I have seen your face all over town today. Handsome and adorable! :-)

  2. That is a HUGE round up, nice work!

  3. So many delicious treats! Thank you for hosting!

  4. What a terrific idea this was! You both did such a great job hosting! Thanks! Hope you do this again.

  5. I am pulling for the black and tan, and the black sesame peanut butter, because I have never seen anything like those two varieties done before. :)

  6. Woah, so many entries! We food bloggers will take over the world, one cupcake at a time ;)

    Thanks to you and Cheryl for hosting this most brilliant event!

  7. Thank you for making a novice foodblogger one of the chosen few!!

  8. Thank you for hosting to you and Cheryl! It has been fun.:)

  9. I am in cupcake heaven... what a lovely roundup!

  10. I am kicking myself for not making a cupcake!!! Of course, looking at that long list of creativity, I'm not sure what I had in mind would have stood a chance...

    Fabulous work!

  11. Wow, even Izzy hasn't baked that many cupcakes on "Grey's Anatomy." Congratulations on the success of your event. Are there any leftovers???

  12. Man, do these look delicious! I've never really been much of a cupcake person, but I think that looking at these pictures might have converted me.

  13. Yum yum yum!! Wonderful looking treats!!!

  14. Fabulous round up, Garrett & Cheryl!! Thanks so much for hosting =)

    What an amazing array of creative cupcakes! I don't think there was one run of the mill, boring cupcake in the bunch - excellent job everyone! =)

  15. I am simply overwhelmed by the variety and flavors of all these cupcakes.


  16. Fabulous and Bravo!

    The "key to my heart" cupcakes are so sweet..great for valentines day. I couldn't do it though.

    I screw up everything I try to bake.

    I really have baker's envy now.

  17. What a fantabulous parade of cupcakes. Serious eye candy. Congrats! And cupcake kisses, xoxo

  18. I saw the roundup first on the Cupcake Bakeshop! I'm 1) sad I missed out on this event because I would have loved an excuse to make cupcakes and 2) wanted to see if you had any more Nutella recipes lurking in the shadows for World Nutella Day on February 6th!

    We'd love to have you participate. There's more info on my blog or

  19. Thanks to you and Chockylit for hosting the event! I have a question for you. We're meeting my mom-in-law in Davis before she does a big run and she needs to eat straight carbs (pasta, bread) on the eve of her run. Any suggestions for restaurants that the rest of us will enjoy, as well? Thank you!

  20. Mama F: Try Aioli Bodega. There is also Pasta? and Fuzio's but those places are kinda hot and miss. I honestly don't eat a lot of pasta, so I would stick with Aioli Bodega.

  21. Thanks for the recommendation, Garrett!

  22. Great cupcakes I just happened upon this blog and I am a big cupcake lover. I do want to make the tiramisu cupcakes by becky brown. I was wondering if she had a blog of her own. If she does I would like to have her address to visit. If she does please send me a link to
    Thanks again

  23. this is going on my favorites. i will definitely refer to this list the next time i'm at a loss for a recipe! thank you!!!
