It’s been a while since I’ve posted, and that’s largely because I have been focusing on eating healthier, more well-rounded meals – at home.
However, when I saw a contest giveaway from one of my favorite local shops, I just had to enter! Lo and behold, I won!
Classy Girl Cupcakes is an adorable shop in Cathedral Square in East Town Milwaukee. Almost every time I have visitors, we make a stop in for a cupcake or a push pop. With all the walking and exploring we do, CGC always seems to be a nice, sweet reward!
I’ve also used CGC for my “Clue-themed” party.Classy Girl Cupcakes were also responsible for my contribution to UPAF Night at Casablanca earlier this year. Four different flavors on hand, decorated in UPAF colors! Carrot cake, Ghirardelli chocoloate, Red velvet and Vanilla (a personal favorite of mine!). So, back to the contest… Every Friday, CGC takes one of their cupcakes on-location in Milwaukee for a photo shoot. The photo then gets posted on both their @cgcupcakesmke Twitter account and their @classygirlcupcakes Instagram account.
Followers should “repost” the photo to their own accounts. The hashtags to use are #CGCinMKE and #classygirlcupcakes. Followers should also leave a comment on the Classy Girls Photo with where they suspect the cupcake was photographed.
Photos are generally up by 8AM Friday mornings. And a winner is chosen by 6PM that evening. Here are a few photos (including the “Tequila-themed” photo which made me a winner!)
All I had to do to claim my prize was to stop by the shop (on my way home from a morning at the salon) and show the confirmation email Christine sent me the evening that I won (last night). I had the lovely lady behind the counter pick her favorite jumbo filled cupcake and surprise me.
I came home to a beautiful, and huge gooey pretzel chunk jumbo filled cupcake ($5.00 value, and who knows how many calories!).I’m not sure how long it will take me to finish this package of pretzel filled gooey goodness. Every time I’ve strayed from my meal plan, my body gets a little upset with me, so I may have to take things slowly here!
I will say this… it was love at first bite!
If you’re in the Milwaukee area, please remember to follow Classy Girl Cupcakes on Twitter (@cgcupcakesmke) and Instagram (@classygirlcupcakes), and pay special attention on Fridays! The rewards are real!
