Cupcake Plunger Giveaway Winner!

by Amy K. Bredemeyer

Last week we held a contest to give away a cupcake plunger, to celebrate Cake Boss: The Next Great Baker wrapping up. (The finale is tonight!) Thank you to everyone who participated in the giveaway, especially those who followed the instructions.

We had quite a few illegal entries (mostly people claiming that they left a blog comment when they did not, but several who claimed they followed @TheTalkingBox on twitter when they're not as well), which I'm sad to say turned me off to having a Rafflecopter widget. As longtime readers know, we normally just take blog comments as "entries" and have select the winners. (we have also counted "Facebook Likes" one one or two occasions in the past as well.) was still used through the Rafflecopter system, but it took me about half an hour to figure out which entries were falsified (more than ten were!). So, I may shelf the idea of using such a system. While it made it nice for you guys to enter multiple ways (and a big THANK YOU to the three or four people who earned the maximum number of entries!), it would have been a much larger nightmare if we had received a greater response to this giveaway (like we did with the NCIS: LA shirt!).

Anyway, special congrats to Jessica F. (jwfong in the comments) for winning the cupcake plunger! We have contacted her and look forward to getting out her prize! Thank you again to everyone who participated and we hope that you'll come back for future giveaways and to read other articles that might interest you!
