Attention Cupcake Lovers! There is a fabulous event taking place this week - DC's First Annual Cupcake Contest! A couple months in the making, the contest is being held at the Washington Club at 15 Dupont Circle this Thursday, September 25, 2008 from 6:30 - 8:30pm.
Some of the entrants include Baked & Wired, Nostalgia Cupcakes (opening later this year in Annapolis), fellow blogger 52 Cupcakes, The Baltimore Cupcake Company, Delaware's own Sweet N Sassy Cupcakes, and many many more!
Just a little background on the contest: There are 3 categories for entry - Professional, Amateur, and Out of Town - and each baker will enter a Chocolate Cupcake with White Icing, a Yellow Cupcake with Chocolate Icing, and a Wildcard (ooooo exciting!). The Cupcakes will be judged on flavor, taste and texture, not on decorating. While standard sized cupcakes are only being made for the judges, most all entrants will be providing mini's for the public to sample.
So if you're not busy on Thursday evening, swing by the Washington Club, sample some cupcakes, and see who's crowned with the "Best Cupcake" title! You can find more details on the contest by visiting the Blonde's I-View blog.
