I’m bringing CUPCAKE HERO back!

You read it here first! Cupcake Hero is back, baby!

As much fun as I’ve had participating every month in Iron Cupcake, I have a sweet (no pun intended *snort*) spot in my heart for the original cupcake blog event known as CUPCAKE HERO started by my dear friend Laurie of Quirky Cupcake almost 2 years ago. This was the first cupcake – scratch that – food blogging event I EVER participated in!

Gosh. How time flies…

♪♫Memories. Like the corners of my mind♪♫

Oops! For a minute there my mind wandered and I was singing a duet with Barbara Streisand.

Now you may or may not have read on Laurie’s blog that her son was recently diagnosed with epilepsy. And as any great mother would, she made the hard decision to cut back on blogging responsibilities and focus on her son and family. While the rest of us cupcake bakers understood, it definitely left a hole in the cupcake world (in my humble opinion).

But I’m happy to report that with Laurie’s blessing… I’m bringing CUPCAKE HERO back!

First thing’s first.

Join our flickr group: http://www.flickr.com/groups/cupcakehero/

Done? Good.

Next. Get your creative juices flowing. I’ll be announcing the participation rules, prizes and September ingredient and/or theme soon. Very very soon.

So don’t touch that dial… errr… mouse! We’ll be back after these commercial breaks.

PS – Just for kicks. Leave me a comment if you are interested in participating, any suggestions, comments and/or questions. You know me. I’m a CW!
