It's that time of year again...time for the LA Cupcake Challenge. Last year I had a great time tasting cupcakes from a lot of places I hadn't tried before, even finding some new cupcakes that I LOVED. The LA Cupcake Challenge 2011 is only a few weeks away and I can't wait to be a judge again! Some of the favorites from last year will be back and some surprising new entrants will be in attendance too.

The LA Cupcake Challenge is open to the public, but make sure you buy your tickets soon because they sold out last year. Your ticket buys you a cupcake from each competitor, so the $40 price tag is well worth it. You can purchase tickets here.

You can find more info on the official website here.
I hope to see a lot of you there!
