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 GeekyHostess.com, 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.

Even the description for this shirt is amazing: “Superman can fly. Batman has a Batmobile. And Deadpool? That guy doesn’t have such fancy modes of transportation so he has to improvise. With this Deadpool t-shirt you can show everyone that this guy isn’t too good to ride around on an alpaca if that’s what he needs to do.”

How do you get in on this? Easy! Follow Shirts.com on Facebook or Twitter, and then come on back and comment with your e-mail address for your entry. If you don’t leave an e-mail, I can’t send you your stuff, so be sure to include it! You have until noon ET on Thursday, May 14. Also, a huge thank you to Shirts.com for allowing this to be a world-wide giveaway! So go get liking!
