Sin-A-Mon Tales

A chronicle of my kitchen experiments, a little healthy a little indulgent

Drumrolls For the Winners Please

First up thank you folks for participating in the Sin-A-Mon Valentine contest, I got 43 entries in less than 24 hours and each one of the entries was brilliant… had a character to it, some were utterly romantic, some really whacky and some even naughty…

Me and my partner sat down yesterday night and went through them, and what a time we had imaging the whacky cupcake flavours ranging from aalo parantha with pickle to sambhar powder flavoured with spicy potato mash frosting to ring as cup cake toppers (awww) to lime and mint (I personally like this one)… there many amusing flavours that came to me in mail and folks I am going to actually try making some of them, yes yes I am that whacky 😉

And after sitting on the responses for over an hour we decided to announce 4 winners instead of 3, as between these three folks we just couldn’t drop one 🙂

So drumrolls please folks… here are the names of the winners (in no particular order)

1. Rani

2. Jismy Jose

3. Nazeen Koonda-Masood

4. Sindhu Rao

And here is what they had to say

Jismy Jose

Whats the first thing that attracted you towards your partner?
The first thing that attracted me to him was his hair. He looks like a total schoolboy and would never ever be called a 30 year old. Also cause he is such a goof ball, but in the nice warm funny way =)
What according to you is the wackiest occasion to gift cupcakes?
The wackiest occasion to give a cupcake would be at a baby shower. Have a big cake and make replicas of the big cake into small cupcakes. It goes with the theme of the baby shower =)
What according to you is the most romantic thing to do with a cupcake?
The most romantic thing would be is to ask a girl out with cupcakes. Write an alphabet onto each cupcake, asking her out and you could also make the ring as a topper on the last cupcake

Nazeen Koonda-Masood

Whats the first thing that attracted you towards your partner? (go on don’t hesitate, I love to listen to funny things too ) – His extra messy hair and the fact that he was always late
What according to you is the wackiest occasion to gift cupcakes?- Its min happiness after you’ve dumped that Awful friend
What according to you is the most romantic thing to do with a cupcake? or if you are the kind who likes to be wacky whats is the wackiest flavour of cupcakes you can imagine?- I want a Alo paratha flavoured cupcake with a achar filling and mash potato icing!! the most romantic thing to do with a cupcake is to eat it!



. Done! :)
2. Was swept off my feet by his sexy butt that looked edible ( I swear!!) in the black trousers he wore! :)
3. whacky would be when a woman (could be me :) ) doesn’t get her ‘cup’ size and is frustrated (must be me!)
4. The whackiest flavor I can think of is this: say sambhar flavored cup cake for a south indian friend or a raajma stuffed/or dressing cupcake for a northie pal. Or vice-versa would be bad either! Imagine!! :) :)
