It’s All Happening at Ybor City This Saturday!

Good morrow good people!

I don’t know about you but I am psyched about the festivals happening at Ybor City Saturday October 12th. First up, yours truly will not only be vending at tomorrow’s 3rd Annual Cupcake Festival but we’ve entered the contest for Tampa’s Best Cupcake Maker.  A panel of local judges will munch their way through 20 entries to determine the best-tasting cupcakes along with the best-looking creations. Winners will earn the title of “Best Cupcake in Tampa Bay 2013,” along with up to $400 in cash prizes.

Here’s our entry, we call it the Have S’more Cupcake! Moist and chewy graham cracker cake infused with our very own rich chocolate ganache and topped with homemade marshmallow and a dusting of chocolate.

These will be available for purchase after the judging is over at noon. In the meantime you’ll still be able to try and buy our other creations at the festival. You’ll go bananas for our Bananas Foster cupcake made with banana flavored cake with homemade caramel and baked bananas at the bottom and caramelized sugar on top. Kids will love our PB&J cupcakes blending grape flavored cake and frosting made with natural peanut butter.

Also in time for Halloween is our Candy Corn Dream cupcake which tastes even better than it looks! Orange and lemon cake batter has been poured into each cup together and topped with festively colored vanilla butter cream icing.

Finally we’ve brought back the British favorite, Jaffa Cake, in the form of a cupcake with our rich chocolate ganache topping.
