Vancouver Cupcake Throwdown 2012

Yesterday, as I perused Miss604’s blog as I (somewhat religiously) do, I came across a post for the Vancouver Cupcake Throwdown 2012. Naturally, as a home-based baker, I was intrigued and read on.

As it turns out, this annual charity event features 20 local cupcake bakers duking it out for the title of best cupcake. After a bit of consideration, I decided to sign up in order to do something that I love while supporting a worthwhile local charity.

On February 16th, attendees will have the opportunity to attend the Vancouver Cupcake Throwdown, nosh on various cupcakes from sampling stations and vote on both taste and presentation. Here’s what you need to know:

    Where: Chapel Arts, 304 Dunlevy Avenue, Vancouver

    When: Thursday, February 16, 2012 from 7:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.

    How Much: Admission is $10 at the door and includes 5 tasting tickets. Additional tasting tickets can be purchased for $1 each

    Who: Supporting the H.A.V.E. Culinary Training Society, providing training and employment placement in Vancouver’s downtown eastside community

This fun, family-friendly event features music from live DJs, beverages and excellent raffle prizes – including a much-coveted KitchenAid stand mixer! Please consider coming out to support H.A.V.E., sample some tasty cupcakes and have fun!

I’ll be there, toting the cupcakes seen above that I recently created for a birthday party. The only problem? They don’t have a name! These fudgy Dutch chocolate cupcakes are stuffed with mocha whipped cream and topped with handmade caramel buttercream frosting and a sprinkling of shaved Lindt milk chocolate. If you have an idea of a name for these cupcakes, leave it in the comments below.

I look forward to seeing you on February 16th! To learn more about my home-based baking, visit me on Facebook!
