Sugar Rush: Event Summary

My sugar rush from Sugar Rush has finally worn off and I'm happy to report that the event was a HUGE success. This cupcake event helped raise $4702.05 for Orangewood Children's Foundation!! Thank you to everyone who helped organize (Shastin), baked cupcakes, ate cupcakes, and donated money to this wonderful non-profit organization.

Sugar Rush wasn't just a cupcake-eating event, it really was a cupcake extravaganza. In addition to the booths offering cupcakes, there were also just as many booths selling cupcake supplies, desserts, beanies, aprons, cookies, and cupcake crafts.

I loved this booth selling milk...seriously what a smart idea! You could get chocolate, strawberry, or regular.

My cute little nephew finally posed for a photo for me.

In case you were hungry for non-cupcake food, you could choose from three food trucks -- The Burnt Truck, Kogi BBQ, and the Just Chillin' Ice Cream Truck. I chose to fill up on some sliders from the Burnt Truck.

I was asked to be a judge in the cupcake competition. People assume this is an easy job, but after eating 17 cupcakes, I can honestly tell you that it's not.

The other judges were Jason and Kim from Saturday Night Foodies and John Jennison, a cake artist. I've hung out with Jason and Kim at several other food events and they sure know food, especially the ins and outs of the food truck scene. Again, I love hanging out with people who are as passionate about food as I am.

Coming up...the cupcake competition winners!
