The National Capital Area Cake Show is holding a contest in my general vicinity. I might be a little excited.
I’ll be on site with TWO HUNDRED mini cupcakes to feed to the public. If you, too, live in the DC area, come meet me! Eat my cake! Certainly do not slip the judges a twenty on my behalf! I will be the one working very hard not to swear in front of children (frowned upon), and giving them tiny caffeine/sugar bombs instead (apparently okay?).
Where is the thing? Does it cost dollars?
The cupcake social is at Fairfax High School, 3501 Rebel Run, Fairfax, VA 22030. It starts at 6:00 PM on April 16. It does cost $15, but you can eat as much cake as you want! The website suggests buying tickets ahead of time if you plan on attending.
What cake are you making????
Two varieties! A mulled cider cupcake and a cappuccino cupcake.
What is your test baking process?
Make as large a mess as possible. Foist six kinds of cupcake on everyone I know. Write down the results. Repeat.
Will you be creating the components of your stupidly complicated cupcakes ahead of time so you can have a nice, leisurely baking process on Saturday?
See you there!
