Yesterday we went to and sponsored Cupcake Camp Seattle (hosted by Carrie Middlemiss of Bella Cupcake Couture) and we had so much fun! We got there early and set up our display and shortly after the masses of people came in for their cupcake extravaganza!
Everyone wanted to take pictures of the cupcakes and it was so much fun!
There were tons of other bakers there, some of the big guys were Trophy Cupcake, Cupcake Royale, and Wink Cupcakes. There were even some bakers that came up from California and Oregon like Rocket Queen Cupcakes! It was a crazy crazy event and TONS of people came in to support the cause for Hope Heart Institute and eat their cupcakes too!
People were lined up out the door because it was so busy and they would come in and LOAD up their plates with cupcakes, and honestly, I don't know how they could eat so many sweets without a big bag of Doritos to balance it all out with some salt!
Hope you aren't claustrophobic!
Look at that line going down the block!!
We entered two cupcakes into the competitions, one for the 'Most Unique Ingredients' which we put our sweet little cupcake the 'Little Miss Tipsy' in for with her Lemoncello and Raspberry Vodka swirled cake, with a Lemoncello and fresh Lemon Zest Buttercream, topped with a Fresh Raspberry Vodka and Raspberry Glaze. It was DELICIOUS!
We also entered into the 'Best Seattle Theme' with Oscar the Orca and his Salmon Buddies!
We went up against some stiff competition and we WON 1st Place for the 'Little Miss Tipsy' and 2nd place for Oscar the Orca! It was pretty Amazing!
So it was a pretty big day for us at New York Cupcakes, we got to see a lot of other bakers, and see what everyone was doing, and get to socialize with all the cupcake lovers in Seattle!
We'll have to come up with some fun new ideas for next year! We hope to see you there in 2011!!
So its my day off after the big day yesterday, and I think I'm going to go take a nap!
Enjoy the sunshine!
