I get to be a cupcake judge!

Prof Pic
Yes, it's true! My wonderful job gets even better!

On Sunday, March 25th, I will be at an event called Cupcake Madness in Narragansett, Rhode Island. It's a fun family event where you can walk around and taste cupcakes made by some of the best bakers in the state of Rhode Island.

Here's a picture of the strawberry lemonade cupcake that took home the title of "Best Cupcake" last year! Doesn't it look delicious??

I will be on a panel of judges who determines which is THE best cupcake after a timed bake-off of the finalists!

Along with eating delicious cupcakes, I'll be signing books (IT'S RAINING CUPCAKES and SPRINKLES AND SECRETS), which you can buy at the event from the local, independent bookstore, Wakefield Books.

I've never been to Rhode Island, so I'm really excited about this trip. Along with Cupcake Madness on Sunday, I'll be doing a school visit on Friday, and Saturday night I go out to dinner with a family who won the opportunity to dine with me in a raffle prize drawing.

Seriously, this is SUCH a cool event, and that winning cupcake from last year looks DELISH! As you know, I was in RI and Narragansett for my first time last spring and it is SO LOVELY there! HAVE FUN!

I'm really excited. Should be a fun weekend, despite the loooong flight to get there.

I guess we are going to Crazy Burger Sunday morning for breakfast... I have all Saturday to myself, so I still may go for dinner, too and try a veggie burger. :)

Oh nice! Read some good books on the flight, lol! And I can't wait to hear about how the competition goes!

What fun! Have a wonderful trip, Lisa. Maybe there's some sun on that side of the country?

Thanks Lorraine!

Even more than cupcakes, I am truly hoping for a little sunshine! Ugh, this weather is just... not fun.

oooh! Paint me green!!! Enjoy! :)
Mar. 15th, 2012 01:25 pm (UTC)
Thanks, I will. :)

this is fantastic! I'm tremendously excited about your whole trip out to RI! Congrats -- those elementary school kids are so lucky to have you coming! Not to mention you get to see and eat some beautiful cupcakes!

I love elementary school visits! I'm so excited about that. It's going to be a fun weekend. :)

That's just awesome (and delicious)!

*makes note to self to write about chocolate*

haha - I know, I always say, writing about cupcakes was the best thing I ever did. :)

Wow, LIsa, that is super exciting. Have a great time!
Mar. 15th, 2012 01:27 pm (UTC)
Thanks, I think it's going to be a fun weekend, although a long day of traveling to get there and then get back home.
Mar. 15th, 2012 01:55 pm (UTC)
I hear you. I'm doing all that travel next week, and there's no way to get there or home without going someplace else first.
Mar. 14th, 2012 09:09 pm (UTC)
OH wow. I am envious! Have fun! Mmm cupcakes!
Mar. 15th, 2012 01:27 pm (UTC)
Thanks so much!

THIS SOUNDS AMAZING. Could there be a better gig than author + cupcake judge? I don't think so.

I hear Rhode Island is beautiful but I've never been, unless you count riding through it on the train. It looked pretty from the train window!

LOL! I posted an almost identical comment, Barb! Guess I should've read through everyone else's comments before adding mine.
Mar. 15th, 2012 01:28 pm (UTC)
I know, I'm so excited. I will probably want them all to win. And yes, I've heard it's beautiful there.

Tough job, but someone's gotta do it! ;-)
Mar. 15th, 2012 01:28 pm (UTC)
Yep, that's what I'm thinking.

It's a tough job, but someone's gotta do it! :)
Mar. 15th, 2012 01:33 pm (UTC)
I feel so lucky they picked me to do that job!! :)
Mar. 15th, 2012 01:01 pm (UTC)
Yum! We went to a cupcake store yesterday and even though I don't (can't) eat that stuff anymore, I have to admit, the one bite I had (carrot cake!) was pure heaven.

The way you've changed your body and lifestyle is SO inspirational. I'm trying to be better about what I eat too. I've quit my diet soda addiction, which was so so so hard, but I did it! Haven't had one in 3 months. The sweet stuff is harder, but really trying to change to eating it only for special occasions. Well, except for the one piece of dark chocolate I have a day, because, you know, it's good for you, right?
Mar. 15th, 2012 10:28 pm (UTC)
Yum, yum, yum. And the winner is ----- you! Enjoy.
Mar. 19th, 2012 05:41 pm (UTC)
Lucky!! I hope you have a great time!! I'm sure you will--how can you not?!?
