This Giveaway is over and the Winner  has been notified. 
This giveaway took place during a time when readers when not able to comment on the blog for days and unfortunately the problem wasn't corrected in time so only one person was able to enter the giveaway. I took the comments that were listed and added them to the form so that those who originally entered would have a chance to win too. Now the giveaway has been extended and instead of leaving a comment, you enter by filling out the form at the bottom of the review. 
About: Roundabouts® Cupcake Sleeves transform  plain cupcakes into into virtually anything - like hamburgers, baby bottles, sushi, leprechauns, Easter Bunnies, Mardi Gras Masks, Puppies or even mini margaritas! Each Roundabouts® package comes with 12 easy-to-use, self-adhesive sleeves in a wide range of whimsical and upscale designs for virtually every occasion including birthdays, weddings, graduations, and holidays. Roundabouts® packaging is designed to minimize waste and is 100% recyclable.
Roundabouts Cupcake Sleeves are incredibly affordable at just $8.99 per dozen (excluding Couture and Jumbo Sleeves) and they are a huge time saver! I admit that I am pretty lazy - but I like to make people think that I put a lot of effort into things so Roundabouts Cupcake Sleeves are perfect for me. Take ordinary cupcakes, wrap a self adhesive roundabout sleeve around them & top with sprinkles or other simple toppings that can found at your local grocery store and you have perfectly decorated cupcakes in minutes!
 Roundabouts has more than 70 designs to choose from and you can definitely find a theme to suit any occasion. My favorites are the Glam Girls (pictured above on the top row) and the new line of Couture Cupcake Sleeves(pictured directly above). They have the largest and most creative selection of Cupcake kits that I've come across. If you're having an Oscar Night Party, Roundabouts has  you covered with the Popcorn Theme kit and the "Award Goes To..." Trophy Kit(pictured directly above). They also have cute options for Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, Easter and pretty much any other holiday or occasion you can think of.
Each Roundabouts Kit comes with a dozen cupcake sleeves, hanging quick ref. guide, easy store sleeve case and a suggestions & tips guide
We received the Hamburger kit to review. I was apprehensive at first about trying to make the bun colored icing but it was - pardon the pun - a piece of cake!! I simply followed the instructions that came with the kit by adding the specified amounts of food coloring (just red, yellow and blue) to the white frosting and that was it! I was in a hurry so I bought a pack of  already baked and frosted vanilla cupcakes. The selection at the store was slim so I had to get a pack that was incredibly messy looking, topped with way too much icing and a gum ball on each cake. To make matters worse, they flipped over on the way home so they were some extraordinarily pathetic looking cupcakes. At home, I scooped off the gum balls, scraped the icing into a bowl and mixed it with the specified amounts of food coloring and as you can see, the perfect "bun" color was achieved. It probably took 15 minutes to do the entire process of decorating 12 cupcakes!!
Our Hamburger Cupcake - we didn't add the sesame seeds but I think it still looks great!!
If by some chance Roundabouts doesn't have the style you want, you can personalize sleeves for whatever occasion and style you prefer -they specialize in customized sleeves. Roundabouts are Earth friendly, anti microbial and water resistant. I also love that they are grease resistant - the messy frosting was all over the place but it just wiped right off the cupcake sleeve!

They are also VERY kid friendly. Your kids will love helping you decorate your cupcakes with Roundabouts then they'll have even more fun eating them!!
BEFORE & AFTER - Seriously! I bought these icky looking cupcakes on discount, scraped off the icing, added my Roundabout sleeve then topped with the Oh So Easy to prepare bun colored icing and VOILA - a cute cupcake in minutes!
