TARDIS Sprinkles review and Geeky Hostess Giveaway

**Edit: Thanks to the random number generator, commenter number 4, Anna, has won! We’ll be in touch by e-mail! Thanks so much everyone and a super thank you to Tara of the Geeky Hostess!**

For years cupcakes have been a huge trend. Unfortunately, traditional cupcakes are pretty lacking in the geeky department. Thankfully creator of, Tara, has changed all that with her array of geeky sprinkles. Now you can combine the cuteness of cupcakes with a fandom sprinkling of your choice. She offers four varieties to choose from: police box, gears, lightning bolts, and meeple. I was offered my choice of shape, so naturally I went with police box.


yes, I even found bow-tie wrappers!

Yesterday my business, Nerds & Needles, was at Toronto Fan Days and I brought in these for treats to hand out to my neighbours and friends. They were a huge hit, everyone thought they were super clever, and I didn’t have to slave over them to make them awesome.



Want to impress your friends and family this holiday season with some geeky cupcakes? Tara has you covered! You can enter from now until Sunday, December 13 at 5pm ET, to win your own jar in whatever shape you’d like!
