We Came, We Saw, We Cupcaked!

Wow! WOW! What a day! 50 bakers, 1600+ cupcakes, 7 contests, 4 hours and more attendees than you could shake a stick at (a little over 250 to be exact)! There are many many many people that need to be thanked:

* The Bakers
* The Sponsors
* The Judges (Marie of MarieLuvPink, Heather of Secrets of Paris, Synie of Synie's Cupcakes, Lindsey of Lost in Cheeseland, Bryan on Where is Bryan & Merce and the Muse, Lynda of Wedding Cakes Avenue, Alisa of Sweet Pea Baking, Kacee & Elizabeth of Le Best of Paris, and Ruthy of Beauty Cakes).
* Mika, Thomas and the team at Bistrot Vivienne
* The Volunteers who pitched in and kept everything running smoothly

And everyone who came out to show their support. We raised over 1200 euros for our charity, Rebuilding Haiti Now.

We hope you enjoyed it. We hope you ate lots of cupcakes!

We have started a Flickr pool where we would love to see any and all pictures taken from the event.

And by the way, we are sorry the contests ran late. The judges were still deliberating at 8PM long after everyone went home. Without further ado, here are the winners....Congratulations all!

Le Best of Paris: Stephane from Rebuilding Haiti Now and his amazing Profiterole cupcakes.
Most American: Josephine and her adorable Red Velvet Cupcakes (that's not Josephine but that is her winning cupcake pictured below).

The Best Cupcake by a Baker Under 16: Sophie and her delicious Orange Butter Bomb cupcakes.
Best Pop Culture Inspired: Cat of Sugar Daze and her sexy Sex & the City inspired Cosmopolitan cupcakes.

Best Summer-Inspired: Nicolette of Cafe Creme and those luscious Verveine Peach cupcakes.

Most Exotic/Unexpected Ingredient : Claudia's "Passion Paradise" which exquisitely combined mango, lemoncurd and cream cheese.
People's Choice: Laila and her mouthwatering Guinness Kisses minis!

And a big congratulations to Sabrina who won our drawing and took home the 177 piece Wilton Ultimate Cake Decorator set!

Thanks again so much to everyone who participated and made this day possible! We look forward to seeing you all next year.......

  9. A Tribute to Theatre
    The Murugan Theatre. It is one of the theatres in Thiruthangal, a small town near the famous industrial town of Sivakasi in Tamil Nadu. The small town had three theatres in those days (1980s). Chinnaknai Theatre was in the northern corner of the town and Balaji Talkies was at the other end, in the southern corner

    We proud inviting you to the the internet's best Social community. www.jeejix.com .

  10. Congratulations to your very successful event! I love those cupcakes I should have attended this charitable event. Venues Denver also holds charity events for less fortunate people. I heard from my sister that their company just checked party venues in Denver to hold their company party for orphans. I hope more people will give a heart to those people who are in need. And I hope you'd continue with your good deeds as well. And that you'd prosper not just in wealth but in health as well.
