This weekend I went a few towns up the Hudson River to Beacon, NY to stay with friends. We went hiking, made some wedding favors for their big day in June and I got to cook for more than just myself, which I always love. I made meatballs (a perfect-post hike meal with pasta and Roselli's sauce!) and Red Velvet cupcakes. I used a Sprinkles mix from Williams-Sonoma, which was a breeze to bake and the results were heavenly. And somehow, this was my first encounter with Red Velvet and I was extremely happy. I love the combination of the chocolately flavor, the festive red color and the buttery cream cheese frosting.
Which brings me to this week's giveaway! Williams-Sonoma has generously offered to giveaway the following products to one lucky blog reader. To enter, please post a comment about your favorite baked good—what it is, who makes it or where you buy it and/or why you love it so—by 11:59 EST Friday April 4th. One winner will be chosen at random.**
Here's what's included in the prize (that's worth nearly $82!!):
Vanilla and Chocolate Cupcake mix by Sprinkles, a very popular cupcake shop in Beverly Hills.
Daisy Crown Cupcake Pan which makes 6 huge cupcakes surrounded by five large petals. This pan is nonstick and will certainly get you baking and ready for spring!
Silicups Brights, Set of 12 silicone muffin or cupcake liners. These are reusable and spare you the fuss of having to grease your pans.
**Please make sure you post the comment using either your name or an online id (rather than posting it as an anonymous user) so I know who you are. I will post the winner first thing the morning of Monday April 7th, so you will need to check back then to see if you have won so you can email me your address. Good luck!
