The OC Fair and Cupcakes

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!

We got cupcakes from CB's Cupcakes place as well. However I think it would be a ton of fun to judge something like that!

Also we pigged out on food!! It took me forever to write the blog post! LOL
