I have a love affair with the Orange County Fair. I'm not interested in the giant slides, ferris wheel, games, or Weird Al's Brain. I just want fried food.
My first experience with cupcakes at the OC Fair began two years ago when I discovered the deep-fried cupcake. Although surprisingly delicious, it has yet to reappear at the fair again.
The next year, after finding out that the deep-fried cupcake was not back, I found CB's Cupcakes. They sold pretty typical cupcakes, except that you got to build the cupcake yourself. You pick the cake, frosting, and topping. Not a bad idea, but makes for a longer line.
So the OC Fair ends on Sunday and I have yet to go! My husband has been traveling a lot for work and we just haven't had the time to eat lots of fried food! Fortunately, I will be attending the fair this Saturday to judge the OC Cupcake Classic. Come stop by the Promenade Stage between 1p-3p and say hi.
Since I haven't had the chance to scope out the food this year yet, my mom let me know that CB's Cupcakes is back and selling cupcakes again. Thanks Mom!
