Cupcake Smackdown 1.0

July 31, 2009

this weekend i am competing in my first baking contest ever.  for those of you who haven’t yet heard, the Cupcake Smackdown is going down tomorrow, Saturday, August 1st, at the One 2 One Bar on 5th & Brazos.  i am entering in Amateur Bakers portion (one tray of chocolate, one tray “freestyle”) and also in the Cupcake Eating contest (for humans, as they have a canine category too).  early this morning our local Fox affiliate did a couple of live promotion segments shot at Walton’s Fancy and Staple (where i might add, i had one the most riquísimo cappuccino in a long time, and the the Spinach & Feta croissant was scrumptious too).  i was briefly interviewed in the second segment and one of the tasters had good things to say about my Dulce Sin Leche vegan cupcakes.  Andréa participated as taster and can be seen sharing her thoughts on of Walton’s own cream cheese frosted chocolate cupcakes.

Fox 7’s Good Day Cupcake Coverage [note: the second segment (which features me and has my cupcake as the thumbnail, loads first.  you should also watch the first segment (which has the cupcakes on a platter).]

no grandiose entrance.  starting modestly and making it up as i go along, we’ll see where this goes…

so what’s my purpose?  i’ve always loved to eat, since i was little i can always remember food being a crucial part of my experience.  here i hope to share some of my favorite recipes (and experiments), my thoughts on places to eat, musings on things food related, and hopefully learn somethings too.

bear with me while i figure this out and the rewards should prove delicious :)
