Pumpkin Cupcakes and a Call to Action

Hello, all.

Just in case you don't follow my blog, Is This Thing On?, I wanted to tell you about a little blog contest I've entered.

Last weekend, I made A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Cakes with my college roommate, Kira. We then entered this Pumpkin/Vanilla Swirled cupcake with Cinnamon Cream Cheese buttercream into a cupcake contest called Cupcake Hero.

Cupcake Hero posts an ingredient each month that all cupcake bakers are encouraged to bake into a cupcake in a new and exciting way. This month, the ingredient was pumpkin and the added theme was Halloween. All the pumpkin cupcakes have now been posted to I <3 Cuppycakes' blog and people (like you!) will be able to vote for their favorite cupcakes until October 21st at midnight.

So... if you would... go to the Cupcake Hero post and check out the entries for this month. If you like my Dream is a Wish Your Heart Cakes, then all you have to do is click the bubble beside "Amanda of Is This Thing On?" in the box on the right hand side. No log in, sign in, sign up required.

Thanks, guys!

And... in the interest of full disclosure, voting is totally anonymous, so if you vote for another cupcake, I'll never know! :)
