Once Upon a Swimsuit...A Cupcake Story. Plus a WINNER and a Second Chance!!

I am excited to announce the winner of the cookbook and Americolor Markers Giveaway but first, a story...cupcake style.

Once Upon a Swimsuit
Written and Cupcaked by Trish from Sweetology

Once upon a time there was a girl who was going on vacation to a place sunny and warm.

She was excited. 

That is, until she realized she needed a new one of these...

So she popped a few of these.....

And went to the mall to buy a new swimsuit.  It's that easy right? 


The poor lass tried on hundreds...thousands maybe.

But all the styles made her feel like this...

 Not this...

Probably because she loves to eat cupcakes augmented by her patronage of:

Leaving the mall without a new swimsuit she stopped at the bookstore and bought two copies of this:

Which made her very happy.  One for her and one for a future giveaway.

Want to know what else makes her happy??  A GIVEAWAY WINNER!!

I love the story but I think that "the girl" should choose a nice swimsuit and enjoy the beach because she is gorgeous and Barbie is only a doll ;). Don't forget to enjoy some cupcakes on your vacation too!! Hugs from Spain (love your blog).

Trisha love your cute story and cupcakes. You can rock any bikini any day. Enjoy your vacay!

LOVE LOVE LOVE them all especially since I need to take my butt to the store to find a new swimsuit! I think you should do cupcakes for Food Allergy Awareness (preferably no egg or nuts) & I'm sure my boys would love to dispose of them for you! Keep up the fabulous & inspiring work you do! Hugs!

I would make up a princess cupake story where her tiara is a cupcake - for my niece who is six and practicing to be on cupcake wars! lol
