Cupcake Project/Scoopalicious Ice Cream Cupcake Roundup 2010


It's time again for the Cupcake Project and Scoopalicious Ice Cream Cupcake Roundup - your opportunity to showcase your amazing ice cream cupcake creations just in time for Summer! For a brief tutorial to get you started, check out Stef's post on ice cream cupcakes. For tons of inspiration, check out the drool-worthy entries from 2008 and 2009.


This year, we've raised the stakes with some AMAZING prizes! Check this out, people:

One grand prize winner will win a Cuisinart ICE-30BC Pure Indulgence 2-Quart Automatic Frozen Yogurt, Sorbet, and Ice Cream Maker



AND an incredible prize pack from OXO including OXO Good Grips Solid Stainless Steel Ice Cream Scoop, Oxo Good Grips 2-Cup Angled Measuring Cup, OXO Good Grips 1169600 3-Piece Mixing Bowl Set, Blue/Green/Yellow, Oxo Good Grips Bent Icing Knife, and Oxo Good Grips PRO Grater!!



Two semifinalists and two voters will also win the OXO prize pack shown above.  Read below for the complete rules. You'll be surprised to find out who is judging this year's contest.

Official Rules:
  • Dates: You can enter any time through May 31, 2010.
  • How to Enter:  
  1. Write a post on your blog during the month of May and include a link to both this post and to the post at Scoopalicious. (If you don't have a blog, you can still enter, but why not start one?)  Sorry, we are allowing just one entry per person this year - so make it count!  International readers are welcome to enter, but prizes can not be shipped internationally.  You will win bragging rights and you will have the opportunity to gift your prizes to any person or organization in the United States.
  2. Upload a photo of your cupcake to our Flickr group.  Please upload as large a photo as possible so that we can be sure to best showcase it in the roundup.
  3. Then, complete the entry form. (You can also find it at the bottom of this post)
  • Entrant Voting: All ice cream cupcake roundup entrants are required to vote for their favorite ice cream cupcake some time during the second week of June.  Entrants must pick their first, second, and third favorite ice cream cupcakes and they are not allowed to vote for their own cupcakes.  Entrants that do not vote will become ineligible to win.  (To summarize - you are being judged by your cupcake creating peers - no pressure!)  The top three cupcakes as chosen by the entrants will go on to the public vote.  All three entrant-voted winners will win OXO prize packs, but the public will determine who wins the Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker.  In the event of a tie, the cupcake that received the most second place votes will win.  If there is still a tie, we will look at third place votes.  If there is still a tie, we will have a quick - one day only - vote between the two tied cupcakes.
  • Public Voting:  Public voting will take place during the second half of June.  Anyone with a valid email address will have an opportunity to choose their favorite of the top three cupcakes.  You'll want to vote because two voters will win the same prize pack as the semi-finalists!  In the event of a tie, we will have a quick - one day only - vote between the two tied cupcakes.
Special thanks to Cuisinart and OXO for offering our incredible prizes!

Good luck!!

A special thank you to Stef at the Cupcake Project for all her hard organizational work, her excellent description of the contest, and for procuring the prizes!

Time really does fly! And I am so excited to see what the round-up brings this year!

Thanks Tina and Bethany!

Bethany said...

Ivy, doesn't it?! My goodness, it seems like we JUST did this! Ha!

We do hope we see your lovely creations in the mix!

Janelle said...

I have a question. Are the recipes/ideas supposed to be completely unique, or can I use a cake (and frosting) recipe that I found on a popular baking blog and pair it with ice cream?

Bethany said...

Hi Janelle,

Good question. I think this is more about the combo and presentation than the need for something completely unique, so using a recipe is fine. (It would be lovely to give the recipe creator credit, of course!) Honestly, I don't know enough about the chemistry of cake making to make a cake recipe up and I am sure a lot of others don't either. We just want people to have fun! I even made a sample last year using all boxed products...Long story short, yes, please feel free to use resources around you!

Thanks for participating!
