Valentine's Giveaway Week - Day #1

It's one week until my favorite holiday, Valentine's Day, and here at Tea With Friends we'll be celebrating all week long. Once again I'll be posting a tea-themed vintage Valentine each day, and I've saved these as high-resolution images in case you want to drag them to your desktop and save them for crafting purposes. This sweet bunny Valentine is one of my favorite finds of the past year.

Of course the BIGGEST reason to be sure and visit this blog every day this week is that there will be a giveaway Monday through Saturday and then on Valentine's Day itself next Monday! To kick things off, I thought I'd give away some of these cute baking cups from Michaels. The winner will receive two packages of baking cups, enough for 150 cupcakes, plus ...

... some pink edible glitter from Wilton! So if you don't want to bother with fancy swirled icing on top, you can just toss on some edible glitter and your cupcakes will be extra festive. I wanted to give these away today so I can hopefully get them in the mail to the winner tomorrow so she can be baking by the weekend. To enter, just leave a comment by 7 a.m. EST tomorrow and/or answer this question: What's your favorite flavor of cupcake? (Giveaway open to U.S. residents only, please.) Good luck!


  1. Hi Angela,
    Love your blog, love the cupcake liners. My favorite cupcake is chocolate with mocha frosting,,,,or
    carrot cake cupcake with cream cheese frosting...or vanilla cupcake with lemon curd inside and the top cut like a butterfly...or,
    well, you can see where this is going.
    Thanks for an interesting blog

  2. Chocolate Cake with a rich Chocolate Frosting with a fresh strawberry on top!!!! YUMMY!!!!

  3. Valentine's Day is my favorite too, Angela! Thank you for posting the sweet Valentines again this year.

    I have to say that I have a weakness for cup cakes, especially the mini ones and my favorite flavor is lemon with cream cheese frosting topped with oodles of fluffy coconut.

    Have a happy day!

  4. That vintage Valentine is so sweet. I like chocolate cheesecake swirl cupcakes, and most other kinds. :-)

    The cupcake liners are cute - thanks for this great giveaway.

  5. Hello! Such cute liners~ My favorite is any vanilla flavoured cake with pastel buttercream. add some pressed violets and maybe a smidge of matching filling and i'm in heaven!

  6. Red Velvet with the yummy cream cheese icing.

  7. chocolate would probably be my fav cupcake. what I truly prefer is muffins filled with good stuff-crushed pineapple, sunflower seeds, pecans, raisins....

  8. Recently discovered your blog and love it. Favorite cupcakes are red velvet with cream cheese frosting! I am hosting a tea for my garden club and those liners would be perfect.

  9. Sorry that anymous was me!!!

  10. Hello Angela, how fun is this!
    I love chocolate cupcakes.
    Thanks for your great blog and Happy Valentines Week to you,

  11. My favorite cupcake is yellow cake with homemade chocolate frosting, I know not real exciting but delicious!
    Thanks for the chance to win those cute liners!

  12. Oh, that's easy. I'm really boring. I like white cake (not yellow, white...) with vanilla icing. BUT the icing has to have sprinkles, sugar, and can be a pretty color as well -- something to make it "girly."

  13. My favorite flavor of cupcakes is red velvet and I was so planning on making cupcakes for Valentine's. So you know I really must win this. Pick me!


Thanks so much for taking time to leave a comment! It makes my day to hear from readers!
