18 competitors, some new, some familiar, some winners, some TV stars. Here's the rundown of each competitor and cupcake. I've broken them down into four posts, so it's not overwhelming to see them all at once.
Riverside, CA (cater)
3rd place winner of Sugar Rush cupcake competition 2011
Buffalo Chicken: Maybe it was because it was the only savory cupcake I ate, but I loved this cupcake. The buffalo chicken that topped the cupcake was awesome!
Churro (not judged)
Winner of Food Network's Cupcake Wars
Chocolate Cherry Licorice: cupcake created on Cupcake Wars. I tried a similar cupcake from them last year and loved it. Still a great cupcake!
Spiced Chocolate: Great cake and great frosting. Loved all the chocolatey goodness!
Los Angeles, CA (cater)
Red Velvet: Their cupcakes looked the yummiest! I was excited to try them and they didn't disappoint.
Mint Chip: I liked the flavor combination of the mint and chocolate. Yum!
Winner of Cupcake Camp IE 2010
Chocolate Salted Caramel: The butter toffee that topped this cupcake was to die for! I wish I could eat this cupcake every day!
Girl Scout Samoa: tasted just like the cookie. I wish the frosting would have been less whipped and more creamy, but otherwise great.
