Cupcake GIVEAWAY!!! CLOSED!!!


It's Simple Love would like to welcome our newest sponsor, Stay Calm Cupcake!  Stay Calm Cupcake is an adorable cupcake etsy shop full of homemade cupcakes, cupcake jars, cupcake decor, and other delectable treats.   In celebration of our new sponsor she is giving away a special treat!  But before I announce what, let's get to know the woman behind it all.


Who or what inspires you? 
I get inspiration from a lot of baking blogs. I also really enjoy tastespotting.com. It is a great place for people to share recipes and photos of their work. I often see a picture of a cupcake and create my own recipe to go with it. That’s what is so great about baking, you can take someone else’s creation and turn it into something entirely different and unique. Baking cupcakes allows me to be creative from start to finish. My favorite part of baking cupcakes is creating the perfect flavor combo and then decorating it with really fun frosting and sprinkles.


What do you enjoy most about owning your shop? 
I opened my shop not too long ago with the hopes of making some extra money and getting my product out there. I feel so lucky that it has grown, in such a short amount of time, into something so successful and fun. I love being able to ship my products to people all over the United States, knowing that they enjoy my cupcakes are even sending some as gifts! I hope to one day open my own bakery, until then I am thrilled with how well my Etsy shop is doing and can’t wait to start doing some holiday orders!!


Describe your products in three words
Delicious. Homemade. Creative


What is unique about your creations? 
I take pride in the work that I do, and am an admitted perfectionist. Nothing gets shipped unless it’s EXACTLY the way I envisioned it. It often takes me a little extra time, but it’s worth it. I don’t ship anything that I personally wouldn’t want to receive. My products are unique because my cupcakes kits are 100% customizable – this allows my customer to get exactly what they want. I also throw in little “extras” with each purchase. It’s always nice to get a surprise with your order.

Where else can we find you? (do you have a facebook page?  a blog?  a twitter?) 
Right now I don’t have a facebook page, but I do have a blog. "Stay Calm, Have A Cupcake" has tons of great recipes, pictures and cupcake contests! My twitter account is Jaybug87 – I often announce giveaways and new blog entries there.


Now the What:
One customized cupcake kit of your choice! Options found {here}.

How to Enter:
+1 Go to Stay Calm Cupcake and pick out what flavors you would choose {here}.
+1 Be or become a follower of It's Simple Love.
+1 Subscribe to her blog Stay Calm, Have a Cupcake
+2 Blog, tweet, or link this giveaway
+1 Tell me what is on your Christmas list
+1 Heart my vintage shop Ande Monster on etsy

Please do a separate comment for each entry.
Open to U.S. residents.
Giveaway ends Friday November 19, 2010.
THIS GIVEAWAY IS CURRENTLY CLOSED.
