LA Cupcake Challenge

If I could spend a day doing anything, I wouldn't mind spending it eating cupcakes! The LA Cupcake Challenge is perfect for that. Last year was the first year of the LA Cupcake Challenge. I had planned on going, but had to miss it at the last moment. This year I'm not going to miss it!

Never heard of the LA Cupcake Challenge? It's a sampling of LA and OC's best cupcakes. It takes place on Saturday, February 20 from 12-3pm at the Renaissance Hollywood Hotel in Hollywood, CA. The bakeries will be competing for titles of three categories: Best Traditional, Best Original, and Best Overall. (You can find a list of last year's winners here.)

The cost for this event is $40 and well worth it! You get to sample cupcakes from over 25 different cupcake shops/bakeries. Two of the bakeries in the competition were recently featured on The Food Network's "Cupcake Wars." And two of the bakeries are local favorites in Orange County (Meringue Bake Shop and Two Parts Sugar).

Now for the exciting part: I've been selected to be a judge! Now there's no excuse for me to not attend. I have been looking forward to this event for several months. I hope to see some of you there eating lots of cupcakes (and going into a sugar coma) with me!

Damn. It.

I hate living in Utah a lot. But I hate it even more when I miss out on things like this. Gosh damn it, I wish we had never moved away.

Take Jill with you. Her pregnant self will be pleased as can be.

Wish you could come with me! It's always fun to eat cupcakes with other people.
