First of all I want to thank all of you for staying with me through this whole cupcake saga!! I have had so many emails from you guys telling me how much you enjoyed it and asking what the final decision was. I wish it was just that easy!!!
The producer told me they had researched and found what they thought looked like the best cupcake companies in the two largest cities of every state. They contacted all of these companies and were waiting on responses from them all. The plan was to fill up all the filming slots for Season 2 which would be filming in September. The next plan was to start filling up the filming slots for Season 3 which will film next Spring or Summer.
They wanted me to come in September (as in right now) to film the show and that just wasn’t possible for me. That just wasn’t enough notice for me to be mentally ready as well as having everything arranged for my family so I or we could be back in California that soon. I told them that very first day there was no way that would work for me. They asked me what I thought about two other local cupcake companies and I told the they should contact one of them. She is a friend of mine but she isn’t local anymore. She recently got married and moved to Utah. Since then I have heard they did get a hold of her but she isn’t going to do the show.
At this point they have left it up to me as to whether I want to come film for Season 3.
That being said, the answer for now is - after lots of prayer, travel, cupcake comparisons, and just plain “I don’t have time”, I am not going to do the show!!
The JOY in all of this is it prompted us add the cupcake adventure to our vacation which was fun and in turn helped me realize that as fun as doing that show would be, I don’t need it to prove to me my cupcakes are the best!! I really don’t need the judges comments because I never wanted to be the best cupcake baker to anyone other than those who already think I am the best and that is my sweet hubby and kids!! They are my world, they are my best critics and my best fans, my best taste testers and my best judges.
I will end this saga with this... over the last month or so I have shown pictures of cupcakes from cupcakeries from here to California and back so now I want to show you some of my own!!

May I Have “S’more”
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Phil. 4:6-7
Counting it all Joy!!
