I recently went to Kansas City for a photography workshop with the world famous Helene Dujardin.

Much to my surprise, two sweet and beautiful women greeted me the moment I walked through the door.  I walked right into a big hug!

That big hug was from Kathy Moore and Roxanne Wyss.  There ladies are quite possibly the nicest people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting.  Although this was only the second time we were blessed to be spending time together, it truly felt like we had been friends for a lifetime.

Not only are Kathy and Roxanne giving , thoughtful, and kind, but they are accomplished authors!

As a special treat for you, the ladies are offering up one of their amazing Babycakes Cupcakes Makers AND their best selling book 175 Best Babycakes Cupcake Maker Recipes!


I decided to try their red velvet cupcakes with my favorite ever cream cheese frosting.

Their recipe is wonderful, delicious, and SO easy!  Having from scratch red velvet cupcakes in just minutes is such a treat!

Quite literally actually.

    LOVE this giveaway! The last gift I received was a hand made jewellery box from my 4 year old daughter 😀 It was made of wood (she obviously didnt do that part lol) but (at daycare) she painted it all her favourite colours and with glitter and added little jewels. It was pretty cute <3

    Yikes! I can’t even think of the last gift I received…I’m going to say the gift I gifted myself. It was a beautiful Mother’s pendent. Everything else I have gotten has been for our new baby girl!

    The last gift I received was from my aunt Carole last week. I went to visit her in Western Pennsylvania and she gave me a gourmet tea collection. She had been to a tea party and knew I liked tea so she bought me the set that had flavors like peach oolong, vanilla rooibos, blueberry white, citrus green and peppermint tea. She’s just the best!

    The last gift I received was a pair of TOMS shoes from my husband for my birthday a few weeks ago. I had been mentioning that I wanted a pair (TOMS donates one pair of shoes to a child in need, for every single pair purchased), and I received them as a surprise in the mail the week of my birthday… I couldn’t believe he remembered!!

    For my birthday last month, my sweet hubby refinished our kitchen table, which was in desperate need of some TLC. It was eating the kids homework (paper literally stuck to it in warm weather).

    Oh goodness! I can’t even remember. How sad is that? Not that I haven’t gotten a gift, but that I can’t remember! Ungrateful much?

    Hmm, (trying harder)… nope, nothing.

    Well, this would be wonderful!

    Hmmm…last gift. Is it bad I can’t think of anything? :) Oh I know…a few weeks ago I won a couple of prizes off a blog I read and got some Beezlegz and this beautiful hand-stamped pendant with all 4 of my kiddos names on it. It is awesome!! And I never win anything so it was a total blessing! :)

    The last gift I received was a handful of mini Milky Ways and a cup of hot cocoa! My boyfriend picked me up on a rainy day and presented them to me in the car. Perfect gift after studying all day for my MCAT!
