But, my opinion didn't matter--it was the voters.
The prizes were two-fold. First for that delish local bakery...

and the winner for best cupcake in Cleveland....
Main Street Cupcakes in Hudson
This great bakery specializes in cupcakes. And, all that singleminded-ness clearly paid off. To quote one brilliant voter, "MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM"
Other votes came in for White Flour Bakery, Wild Flower Bakery, Appetite, Casa Dolce, Hough Bakery (RIP), Nature's Bin, Cleveland Cupcake Company, Grandma Freda’s Fresh Bake, Great Scotts Bakery
Most of my votes came by email from non-bloggers.
But, those bloggers that participated are clearly amazing. They include:

I promised an award for the best blog entry, but really they were all interesting in their own way. So expect an email from me to get an address for your handmade prize. (If somehow, I missed your entry, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org)
