My Picks for the 2011 LA Cupcake Challenge

It's hard to judge a cupcake competition. Do I pick a cupcake that's the most unique, one I've never tried before, my favorite traditional flavor, or one that I could eat every day for the rest of my life? There's a lot that goes into picking the winning cupcake.

The LA Cupcake Challenge was a challenge to pick the best cupcakes because there were so many great ones! Luckily I had some help from a friend and a lot of experience in eating cupcakes.






Cupcake Activist's Pick for Best Traditional
My Delight Cupcakery
Red Velvet


Even though I've eaten a lot of My delight Cupcakery's cupcakes in the last two weeks, I could never get sick of them. Their Red Velvet is a perfect classic red velvet: moist cake and silky cream cheese frosting.




Best Traditional Honorable Mention:
Cake Pop - Red Velvet
Double D Cupcake - Chocolate Zin


Cupcake Activist's Pick for Best Original
Blue Cupcake
PB and J

I am a huge peanut butter and jelly fan. (I'm actually eating a PB & J sandwich for lunch today.) Blue Cupcake treated me with another delicious cupcake this year. I think people got thrown off by having two PB & J cupcakes at the event.




Best Original Honorable Mention:
Jus Minis - Josephine
The Cake Shop - Cherry Bomb



Cupcake Activist's Pick for Best Overall
My Delight Cupcakery

Late Night Breakfast


I picked My Delight Cupcakery as my overall favorite because they had the whole package. Not just delicious cupcakes, but great presentation to go with it. They've got it all!




Although I'm sad it's over, I had a great time at Drink Eat Play's 2011 Cupcake Challenge. I can't wait until next next year. Below I've listed the links to my posts about this year's event, as well as other bloggers event recaps.

I found your blog a few weeks ago and I just wanted to let you know that I love your cupcake commentaries. I can't wait to make it out to Ontario to try My Delight Cupcakery.

I didn't get to try the Late Night Breakfast cupcake since I'm a vegetarian, but they did have quite an impressive display! I visit their shop whenever I drive through Ontario. Great recaps of the challenge, and I can't believe that you ran a race the day after!
