Winter Cupcakes Round-Up and an Announcement

My sincerest apologies to all of you who have been waiting to see the round-up and participated in the challenge. I just can't seem to keep track of this event when I'm trying to put the information over here on a separate blog with a separate email address.

So, AYE is in for some big changes. The first big change - this separate blog will be no more after this round-up. It will still be here as an archive and I will add links over at PheMOMenon, but all postings will happen at PheMOMenon instead.

My next change is going to be how the themes are chosen. Let me explain why I'm making these changes. When I first put together this event it was to explore specific ingredients, techniques, and recipes as well as different types of creations that we can all use our creativity to come up with a different spin on.

I want it to be a collection of all the cool stuff that all my cool food blogging friends can put together - and it definitely has been exactly that, but not to the extreme I want it to be. That is my fault because I've done a rather lousy job as a host. I need to do better. I hope that these changes are the start of this! I will soon be announcing the new Art You Eat event on PheMOMenon!

Without further ado, here is the roundup for the Cupcakes - please vote for a winner and they will receive the winning badge! You have until March 20th (midnight MST) to vote!
