Cupcake Smackdown 1.0 - 2nd post with updates
Are you ready? Get Set! and BAKE! It is time for Austin to have a Cupcake Smackdown, pitting icing against icing, we'll see whose cupcakes reign supreme. The tentative activities for Cupcake Smackdown 1.0 are a blind tasting contest of all the store front bakeries, amateur baking contest, cupcake silent auctions, people's popular vote, and a cupcake eating contest for dogs and humans!
For the blind tasting, a panel of local chefs and foodies will be chowing down on vanilla, chocolate, and a baker's choice cupcake from each store front. Each cupcake will be judged on the cake, frosting, and the combination.
Other activities include a bake off in which amateur bakers can enter either the vanilla, chocolate, or freestyle cupcake competition. There will be two categories for the cupcake eating contest: one for human participants and one for canine participants. Spectators will also be invited to vote for the People's Choice award for any of the store front bakeries and also participate in a cupcake silent auction. Proceeds to go to Austin Wine and Food Foundation.
The event is kid and dog friendly. Last day to submit entry forms for amateur bakers' class is July 22nd. Pre-entries for the cupcake eating contest are being accepted.
