Cupcake Tower Giveaway!

by on August 20, 2010 · 180 comments

Every cupcake is a miniature work of art, so why not display yours in style with a The Cupcake Tower.

Cupcake Tower

Founded by sisters Joy and Jennifer, who believed there wasn’t yet a cupcake stand out there worthy of holding the precious creations of cupcake bakers around the word, The Cupcake Tower was hand crafted as a fresh and elegant showcase to cupcake batches of all sizes.  There’s Tiny, Small, Medium and Large, and today you have the chance to win one “Small” which if you ask me, is a pretty nice size for a home baker.

Small

It has three layers (10”, 14” and 18”) and holds approximately 72 standard size cupcakes, stands 13 ½ ” high when put together, folds flat to store just about anywhere, is made of durable wood (mdf) and has a thin laminate coating similar to a countertop so that it wipes clean easily.

If you like the Cupcake Tower, you can become a fan on Facebook to get all the latest Cupcake Tower news, and you can take a shot at getting one for free.

For a chance at having a cupcake tower sent to your home, write a comment telling me who in your town makes or sells the best cupcakes.  If your favorite cupcake was from a place not in your town, that’s okay too — but make sure to say where.  . Fuzz and I will randomly choose a comment Monday morning the 23rd of August around 7:00 AM. Any comments after that will be read with interest, but not eligible for the giveaway.  The lucky commenter will be notified by email, as always.  Good luck!  And I look forward to hearing about all the good cupcakes.

UPDATE: Contest has a winner — Dee, who chose Icing on the Cake in Folsom, CA.

I LOVE this cupcake stand!

Who makes the best cupcakes in my town? Since we have no “real” bakery here, I’m going to go with….me. I have to make my own unless I want to go to Wal-Mart. Not that I’m the best baker in the world, but I’ve made some more than decent cupcakes. I’ve also made some less than decent ones, but nevermind about that.

And right at this very minute, I am watching Cupcake Wars. What a coincidence!

We love the mini cupcakes at the Bent Spoon in Princeton NJ! Lovely to look at….delicious to eat!

Cupcake Royale in Seattle makes the best darn cupcakes. I was smitten when I had my first bite of a Peppermint Patty. My little town in Montana doesnt have any bakeries tha make great cupcakes (1 bakery aside from Walmart/Albertsons – boo).

Homemade are best. THe cupcake places in town charge $3.00 for a standard cupcake. I can’t justify that, plus my little guy is dairy-free, so homemade is always best.

Kim August 22, 2010 at 7:42 am

Sadly there isn’t a bakery or coffeeshop anywhere near here that sells cupcakes. (I live in Europe, where the cupcake crazy hasn’t quite hit as hard, commercially.)

I do have agree that homemade cupcakes are the best (anyway)… I bought half a dozen cupcakes from the bakery at the market once and they just tasted…”mass produced”…a bit rubbery…just blah…

So unless a dedicated cupcake bakery opens up, I’m sticking to the ones from my own oven. My favorites so far: Snickerdoodle cupcakes, lemon ricotta, coconut and plain vanilla. (Reading the comments now to see what other flavours I should really try!)

My favorite cupcake is Magnolia Bakery in New York City. They taste so classic.

Carole Resnick August 22, 2010 at 9:30 am

In Cleveland Ohio there is a little cupcake shop called A Cupcake and a Tea that sells the very best cupcakes in both usual and unusual flavors.

I like to do theme cupcakes. On Tuesday I am making cupcakes to take to my radiation oncologist. I am making red velvet cupcakes with a cream cheese frosting. I have some pink ribbon sprinkles and they will go on the top of each cupcake.

I really love the cupcakes from Mars grocery store in Ellicott City, Maryland, but they HAVE to be the ones with the marshmallow icing. Hmmm. YUM!!!

Barbara Noga August 22, 2010 at 6:18 pm

A place here in our town makes deliciously delectable and sinful cupcakes. It’s called “The French Confection” and the cupcakes are devilish good. They’re baked fresh everyday, and they are so fresh they melt in your mouth. I haven’t found another place locally that makes em better. At least once a week I stop there to get a “cupcake fix”. Love em!, Love em!

Lynne August 22, 2010 at 6:52 pm

I love the vanilla cupcakes from Cake Couture on Oahu. The frosting is sweet, but not too sweet. It’s just right :) And oh so yummy!

My sister Dodie makes the absolute best cupcakes in the state of Maryland. No fancy flavors or fixins, just the basics. They are the best!!

Kim August 22, 2010 at 9:18 pm

We don’t have a cupcake bakery nearby and honestly I have never had a cupcake from a bakery other than Sam’s or Walmart. I’ll have to say homemade.

Jacqueline August 22, 2010 at 11:41 pm

Susie’s Bakery in Calabasas, CA. Its red velvet flavor is to DIE for!

Jillian August 23, 2010 at 3:56 am

The best cupcake I had was red velvet with a delicious icing from Queen Bee Cupcakes in Seaside, FL. They sell gourmet-flavored cupcakes from a vintagey-looking camper trailer in a scenic neighborhood! I’m actually planning on attempting a little cake-decorating business of my own soon though….any advice?

Miya Woods August 23, 2010 at 7:53 am
