Cupcake 150... Your Favourite Cupcake Challenge

Hello you lovely Cupcake Peeps! Happy Monday. :) It's a bit of a special post today as Cupcake hits 150 Challenges. Woohoo! So zoom the spotlight down, I have a little speech...

I'd like to thank The Wonderful Cupcakes, who all work so hard and give their time so generously. Not forgetting of course, our Guest Cupcakes who are always such a pleasure to have at The Cupcake Factory, even if for a short while, and all our past Cupcakes, a little wave for you. Thanks also to all our fantastic Sponsors, you've been so kind. And then there is a mahoosive thank you to everyone that plays along with us, week after week. We couldn't do it withouth you.

So, to celebrate the Old Girl turning 150, this week, we thought we'd let you choose:

... Your Favourite Cupcake Challenge from the last 150 ...

To make things a little easier for you, if you scroll down to the post under this one, or just click here, you'll find a list of all of our Challenges. Don't worry if the numbers all look a bit crazy. I took out a number of duplicate Challenges. You may also notice a big jump in numbers. That's because I didn't want to confuse things too much by renaming some of the more recent Challenges. All the numbers match up to corresponding sketches and colour combos.

Don't forget to let us know which Challenge (number and name) you have chosen in your post, as you won't be eligible for any prizes if we can't see which one you're playing with.

You have until 8pm, GMT on Sunday 17 July to place your entry for this challenge. Have fun!
