The results are in!
And I had a hand in them! I was so excited to serve as a judge for this year's CupcakeCampDC event, which unites novice and professional bakers in competiton to see which cupcake packs the most delicious & unique flavors with beautiful presentation.
Judges' top choice? The Chicken & Waffle Cupcake by Joel Gill of Josie's Confections
Why I l<3ved it: I have never tasted a better combination of sweet & savory, ever, in a cupcake. Last year, I saw a picture of a chicken & waffle themed cupcake and decided I wanted to make one. Having tasted Joel's, I know it is pointless to try my own, having tasted perfection. If you weren't lucky enough to grab one, hopefully I will be one day bringing some to a Superbowl party near you.
My other fave: Salted Caramel Apple by Monika Geraci
The judges differed on some cupcakes, but definitely not this one. Soooo heavenly and the weather is now perfect for just such a cupcake.
More on other cupcakes to follow.......congratulations, winners!
