Sweet Musings with a Bitterly Sharp Wit

A Cupcake in the Hand…


… Is worth two in the oven? Since the original version of that phrase makes so little sense in the first place, I’ll let you be the judge of that.

But soon, two hopeful readers will have their very own cupcake at hand, nestled into a cheerful, bright pink holder! Keeping it simple but throwing in a little superfood twist at the end, I decided to share vanilla bean goji berry cupcakes with cream cheese frosting with the winners.

Just like the above saying, there was no rhyme or reason why, but it sounded tasty and that’s good enough for me.

Okay, down to business. The first winner, chosen by a random number generator, is….

Commenter #13, otherwise known as long-time reader, sydneysunray!

Next up, laying claim to the second cupcake holder, is…

The lovely and ever-talented Oiyi!

Congratulations ladies, you’ll be hearing from me shortly! To everyone else, don’t fret; I happen to have a number of exciting giveaways planned for the very near future. Stay tuned…!

    A cupcake in hand is worth way more than two birds. All I have to say.


  10. Thank you! I am so excited!! Growing up, I have only eaten goji berries in herbal soups. In fact, you don’t eat, but just drink the broth. I always ate them because I liked it. Eating them in a cupcake is exciting!
