Ice Cream Cupcake Roundup Prize Winners! | Cupcake Project

Ice Cream Cupcake Roundup Prize Winners!

I just want to begin by again thanking everyone for participating in the 2009 Ice Cream Cupcake Roundup – our 35 bakers, 650 voters, and 8 prize donors! We are so excited with all of the participation!

If you won a prize, please email stef at cupcakeproject dot com with your mailing address and phone number within the next week.

Without further ado, I present to you the winners:

Reader’s Choice Award

This prize goes to the cupcake that received the most reader votes. It was a close competition, but the winner was Carrot Cake Ice Cream Cupcakes from Little Big Cakes.

People had some great things to say about these cupcakes; here are some highlights:

  • I really like carrot cake and this one looks perfect!
  • After a lot of scrolling and wiping the drool from my mouth, I was finally able to narrow it down to this one and the Vegan Piña Colada Ice Cream Cupcakes from Cookies and Candids. There were a lot that I loved that were yummy looking as desserts. But part of the appeal of cupcakes, for me anyway, is the instant satisfaction. No cutting, no dishes, no utensils, just peel and eat. The carrot cake seems like it would have a lot of flavor yet is still simple to eat.
  • Carrot cake with pecan ice cream sounds awesome! Simple, but great.
  • Are you kidding? Do you really have to ask? Just bite into a cake from Little Big Cakes! I can just look at the picture & smell it… makes my mouth water.
  • Great flavor combo and the picture was really appealing.
  • It’s simple, and classic, but with a twist. I love that it’s not over thought, and the finished product still looks clean and delicious!
  • It is the one I would most like to make, some others were so beyond my cooking abilities.
  • I love carrot cake and this cupcake has all the best elements of carrot cake in a neat little cupcake!
  • Because the cake may be ‘little’ but the taste is ‘big’! Mmm scrumdiddlyumptious!
  • I loved how neat and perfect looking it looks (like a fancy Reese’s) – plus Carrot Cake & Cream Cheese icing is one of my favorites.
  • Can’t go past carrot cake!! I am sitting here eating my low fat yogurt but dreaming it tastes like carrot cake ice cream cupcakes!!!
  • It’s a simple, traditional flavor. And not too flashy or over the top. Less is more! I would love to buy dozens of these!!!

Prize: 12 pack of gourmet cupcake wrappers from Bella Cupcake Couture.

Editor’s Choice – Cupcake Project


This prize was up to me and it was incredibly hard to choose. How do you pick between 35 cupcakes that all sound amazing? In the end, I chose Fragola Tiramisu olio d’oliva Gelato Tortatina (Strawberry Tiramisu Olive Oil Gelato Cupcake) from Little Ivy Cakes. I almost didn’t pick it because it was so complicated that it barely resembled a cupcake. However, with so many different components (almost all homemade) that I would love to taste independently or combined and the sheer amount of effort and creativity that went into these beauties, my choice became clear. I imagined how wide my eyes would get if I were ever served a cupcake of this magnitude and culinary depth. I would feel so special to have the opportunity to try it.

Prize:
Cupcake tote bag from Avocado Creations.
