Giveaway # 1: Cupcake Carrier Bake n' Take {closed}

I was super excited when I won the Scharffenberger gift hamper and the Joy of Cooking book as giveaways.  And now, it’s my turn to give back the love to the world that has been given to me and my blog.

So here’s my Giveaway # 1:  Cupcake Carrier

Cupcakes have become quite a trend these days.  For birthday parties, picnics, baby showers, dinner get-together, girl's lunch, tea party, classroom parties, gosh, just about anytime!  The only trouble with cupcakes is to carry them carefully so all that effort of baking and frosting doesn't go down the drain.  Here's the solution and this is why you'll love this giveaway.
What's in there:
1 Oneida Cupcake Carrier
Original price, if you're interested to know: $40
Capacity: Holds 24 cupcakes
Set Includes: 3 piece Bake n’ Take Cupcake Pan, Tray and Cover
a) One 12-cup non-stick metal cupcake pan
b) One 12-cup plastic stacking tray
c) One plastic locking cover having snap-tight lock system with easy-carry handle

  3. Nice giveaway, really useful one. I will try send you some if I get some time.

  4. WOuld have loved to enter.. been wanting that carrier for long, but never been able to find it here in BAhrain. Anywayz.. have a great time hosting. ANd yes, a lovely giveaway...!

  5. how long is this open Nisha? hope am not missing out the details here.

    1. Until June 20, Sayantani ... there's a link to more information on giveaways :)

  6. what a great giveaway.. love the cupcake holder, I have a cake holder. They come in so handy.

  7. Will send in my entry soon - Would love to have that cupcake holder :)

  8. Never knew something like this available....I use 17 inch LCD monitor and to view u r sidebar on the right hand i need to scroll...It will be good if everything fits on the screen....and next I love the ramblings and educative posts on u r blog....keep the good work flowing....

  9. I'm gonna bake a cupcake tomorrow... I didn't even know cupcake carriers existed... :)

  10. Nisha,

    I linked my savory cupcake here.

    If you bake a cake this month please link it to

    Favorite recipes event: Cakes

  11. I think more eye-catching color would be good for this blog. :)

  12. This is a lovely giveaway, I have been needing a cupcake carrier forever. That being said, I think that I would be more attracted to your site if it was a little more colorful and fun. The ads were a little offputting, I thought it was a scam at first. I would love to see more posts about explanations of the dishes you cook. A lot of them seem foreign but really enticing to me, but I'd have to google them to figure out what you're talking about. Maybe include a picture of the original dish and an explanation for those of us that are inexperienced with those dishes? Thanks! My email is

  13. I am new to visiting your site, but am so far impressed with your overall theme. I will definitely be back to see what you have changed or contributed to it in the future!

  14. Hey! Will you deliver to India too? :) If yes , I'll post my cupcake recipes here.. ;)

    1. Sorry dear, only in US for now!
      But you can still share your recipes, feel free :)

  15. OK..Even if you cannot send the on the site.
    1) The pics are nice but not awesome and lack the finesse that one would see on for instance.
    2) A little more clarity into the recipes, in terms of measurements , to encourage people to try out would be welcome.
    3) The header and the home page are nice right now but some food photography done right would glam up the site and invite everybody to peek in

    I could go on but 1 step at a time..:)

  16. I wish there was an index to view the properly organised recipes.


    WIll try to bake and link some cupcakes here.

  17. I would like to enter the giveaway. I found you through a post on Oneida's page and I am so glad I did. I have clicked through all the different sections of your blog and I must say I really like it. I especially enjoy learning about new foods and cultural differences. While I know you have some personal stories on here, the one thing I think that is missing is more photos/ stories about you and your life. I really enjoy seeing pictures of bloggers making recipes, doing different projects, traveling to different places, etc. But, to be honest, I had to really reach to come up with anything, because I really like your blog very much as it is.

  18. Nisha, just posted mine and trying to load through the linky tool. but it failed 3-4 times. it says the backlink is not there but i have already added it at the end. please if possible could you link it from my blog. the post is here
    thanks in advance.
