Cupcake-palooza contest

Hi all–you may have already heard about the upcoming Cupcake-palooza on March 24, but did you know that you can participate along with the bakeries? Here are the details (for the event as well as how to donate):

The event itself costs $15 per person ($5 for children). You get 10 tickets redeemable for cupcakes (5 for children).

Those who donate do not have to pay for entry, but can buy $1 tickets at the event. To donate, they ask that you make 10 to 20 dozen “G-rated” (no alcohol) cupcakes (or as many as you can). You will need to man your own booth to collect tickets. You can bring props to liven up your display and, of course, flyers and business cards to promote your site.

There will be a contest for the home bakers judged by food writers. There will be 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners and prizes will likely include cookbooks and/or gift certificates.

Proceeds benefit Books from Birth, which is a wonderful cause. If you can and want to participate, contact joan [dot] brasher [at] vanderbilt.edu by Monday.

    10-20 dozen is a lot of cupcakes, but I once did a cupcake stand (like the Cupcake wars) for my husband’s grand opening. I baked 500 cupcakes, so I think I can do this. I have my cupcake in mind. Actually I have two so it will be hard.

    I hope you all come out to meet Grishma of Zaika and Angie of Sweet Natured Treats. We are sharing a table and presenting three flavors of cupcakes. Coconut, Pina Colada and Carrot all with an Easter theme.

    This was a lot of fun. Grishma rocked it with vegan Pina Colada cupcakes and Angie of Angie’s Sweet Natured Treats made delicious carrot cake cupcakes. I was blessed enough to take second prize with coconut cupcakes which made our table pretty exciting. Between the three of us, we fed people hundreds of cupcakes. This week, our blogs will carry our recipes and a bit of the event news. We’re already talking about next year and hopefully a few more bloggers will join us.
