Cupcake Smackdown 2.0 Wrap up with videos and photos

On August 21st, 2010, 409 Austinites gathered to set the first record of its kind - the most people simultaneously frosting a cupcake.  With the generous assistance of Le Cordon Bleu, Austin was able to pull of this awesome feat that benefited local non-profits including Lights, Camera, Help, Mobile Loaves and Fishes, Scare for a Cure, and Keep Austin Dog Friendly. Here are two videos chronicling the event.

This one was edited by me, footage by David Neff.

And this one was shot and edited by John M. P. Knox. 
In addition to completing the huge task of wrangling the masses for the cupcake frosting, Le Cordon Bleu also orchestrated the Guinness World Record attempt for most jaffa cakes eaten in one minute.  Unfortunately, none of our brave contestants beat the record of eight jaffa cakes.  Thank you so much to Le Cordon Bleu for stepping up to the plate on this. 
Other activities at the event included train rides, the cupcake pinata, and the infamous cupcake cannon.  Our event was so cool, that even Dave Chappelle made a debut.

We're still waiting for some administrative tasks of our world record to be completed, but I'd like to thank everyone else who worked hard to put on a great Cupcake Smackdown 2.0. The Cupcake Smackdown couldn't have happened without you!  Now onto the fun, here's the various links to press, photos, videos, and funny tweets.  List of sponsors at the end.
