My recent Cupcake Contest!

My daughter Amanda and I wore matching aprons--it was so kind of her to help me out that evening, especially after putting in almost a 12 hour day in the vet hospital.....

The 'regular' bakers had to bake three different recipes and plate them all creatively for the judges.  We had to have 54 plates of cupcakes PLUS cupcakes for display

This group came in, advertising cupcake 'skirtz' as they call them

folks had to pace themselves or get overly sweet!

My display for the judges- a bit of victorian charm with battenburg lace

The prizes were on the far table---framed cupcake and two bottles of wine from the cupcake winery      
 So, I didn't win, but I learned a lot, had GREAT fun, met LOTS of wonderful people in the community who LOVED my cupcakes and wrote to me, came up to me afterward, etc. AND some of my family was there to share it all with me.......and my sweetheart helped me pack up the car and clean up the kitchen afterward!!
Have Sifter Will Travel!!!!
Well......just you wait......I'm dreaming up some new flavors for next year!!!

Oh yes, I didn't tell you my flavors:  Chocolate covered Cherries, Strawberries Cream Puffs, and Love a Latte which was a spicey cake with a coffee frosting made with marscapone......YUMMY!
