Save the Cupcake Holiday T-Shirt Contest

Save the Cupcake Holiday T-Shirt Contest

Hi, I'm Stef! Welcome to my kitchen, home to over 1000 recipes! Join me on my quest to push baking boundaries and live creatively both in and out of the kitchen.
Happy exploring!

As many of you know, the cupcake has recently come under siege in school systems across the United States.

This holiday season, show support for your favorite sweet treat with a Save The Cupcake holiday shirt.

All designs can be purchased in any style you like. This includes men’s, women’s, children’s, and even baby styles.

Since I’m just that excited about people wearing one of these shirts, I’m hosting a T-Shirt giveaway contest!!

Here are the rules:

Comment on this post with a reason why you think cupcakes should be saved and you get 1 entry (only one reason per person will be counted). Be sure to list your name somewhere in the comment so I know how to reach you if you win. Check out my top ten list for some ideas.


Write about this contest on your blog, MySpace page, Facebook page, Friendster page, or any similar site and you get 5 contest entries. To get your points, simply write a comment on this post with a link to your page where you mentioned the contest. Each site on which you create a link will earn you another 5 entries with a limit of 20 entries per person.

I will randomly draw a winner on November 30. The lucky individual will receive his or her favorite Save the Cupcake T-shirt . Shirts ship within 24 hours so the shirt will arrive well in time for the holidays.

Thanks for playing and good luck!

    Cupcakes should be saved ‘cuz they’re portion controlled! The perfect amount of yummy cake without feeling like a pig.

    Cupcakes should be saved because they are the best ever! It is so disappointing for the kid because they can’t have these at school for their birthdays or any holiday. Honestly you really think that 1 cupcake, a couple times of year, is really what makes the kids overweight?! Children (and the adults) should not have to do without these yummy creations!

    Cupcake should be saved because they are yummy! I don’t see why we need any other reasons =)

    After reviewing your to ten list I decided that the best reason is:

    When kids grow up, they may ban alcohol at senior centers.

    I generally am against “slippery slope” reasoning but I guess I can make an exception in this situation.

    Cupcakes are the best little package of happiness around!! They are perfect to share with my best bud – I eat the frosting, she eats the cake. We’d be SO SAD if someone tried to take that away from us!!

  7. hmmmmm,.

    cupcakes should not be banned because they are less of a mess for teachers to clean up and there is no argueing over who gets what slice,,,,,they are all the same!!

    Anonymous – If I don’t know who you are, how can you get a prize?

    Kelly – I looked all over your page and can’t find where you mentioned the contest. I must be doing something wrong. Any tips?

    My granddaughter and I always make cupcakes. They are easy and fun to decorate, less calories than baking a whole cake. So much fun baking and eating. Save The Cupcake for us!!! :):):)

    I need cupcakes…..otherwise how would my body float if my boat capsized. They are better than any floatation device on the planet and much tastier.

    It’s how to eat a cake with no silverware. Can’t beat that.

    The best way to stop a cupcake siege is to fight back…FOOD FIGHT! Conveniently, cupcakes come with wrappers so your hands won’t even get dirty when you throw them.

    Cupcakes are best for parties because, with lots of frosting, every one is a corner piece!

    Cupcakes should be saved because without them, the world would be a darker, unhappier and less delicious place. And really, who wants that?

    OK Stef – I couldn’t pass up the chance to further your cupcake cause. My blog entry today has been dedicated to you and your wonderful cupcakes.

    Everyone deserves some cake and icing in a perfectly portioned, conveniently wrapped package. It’s the perfect indulgence!

    I noticed that my friend Kat commented about this blog on her blog but forgot to post a comment here linking to hers and thus would not get the pointe. I talked to Stef and have obtained approveal to post a link to Kat’s blog and get her the points. So here it is.

    I would also like to point out that Kat is the one other person who notices a long time ago that NPR had Libby Lewis reporting on Louis Libby. I noticed this when I heard the story and was happy to see that someone else also found this entertaining.
