Some days, we receive feedback that makes us very happy. Today is one such day. On many occasions, we’ve held giveaways as a way to promote the business owners we write about. You may remember the very popular prize cakes we offered a while back… cupcakes from Nicki at 4 Little Piggies in Devonport. The whole scenario evolved when Nicki was nominated during our Great Tasmanian Cupcake Challenge.

Prize Cakes: Winning Think Tasmania Giveaway

Eventually the prize cakes offered by Nicki were won by Joan; declared the winner following a random draw on Valentine’s Day. Joan sent us a lovely message when she was contacted about her win.

I am SO excited. I’ve only been a resident on this special island of Tasmania for four months, so it is a fantastic way to celebrate. So excited to win something… and not just anything, but some handmade Tassie product. Keep up your good work with highlighting Tasmania. I am an avid reader of your newsletter ~ Joan

Not only did Joan express her excitement at winning the prize cakes, she also contacted us again today with a fantastic letter.

Last weekend, after happily chatting with Nicki from 4 Little Piggies to organise a pick-up time, Joan took a leisurely drive out to Devonport, and called in at Ambleside to pick up her winnings: the 12 cupcake prize. Nicki was waiting and had the cakes well packaged in a travel box. She’d taken some photos before-hand of the cakes, and Joan had a photo taken of the two of them at the hand-over.

Joan admitted that two of the cakes didn’t make the distance! Near Latrobe there was a sampling and the cupcakes were declared “heavenly morsels”. With butter cream dripping from the fingers, she cleaned up and continued on her way. The remaining ten cakes arrived safely back to Launceston.

Over the next two days the three different types of cupcake were all devoured. The dreamy, creamy boysenberry; delicate lemon/lime and a scrumptious chocolate cake. This was Joan’s favourite and she’s a very fussy chocolate tragic. It was covered in chocolate frosting and packed with hundreds and thousands.

Joan thought it was all a wonderful, surprise prize. She’ll be purchasing more cupcakes during the year, for special celebrations. She’s now planning to go back to Nicki and her 4 Little Piggies cupcakes.

Now if that doesn’t make you keen to try your own version of the prize cakes from 4 Little Piggies… nothing will. Thanks so much to Joan for the note. We love to hear from our readers anytime, but with such beautiful feedback, we’re absolutely stoked.
