Cupcake Hero::September **WINNER**

October 6, 2009 at 9:58 AM | Posted in Cupcake Hero, cupcakes | 5 Comments

Don’t shake your head at me.

I know what you’re thinking.

“It took you a week to count up the votes, CB, really?”

My answer? Yes, yes it did. I never said I was a math whiz and I do have a life outside cupcakes. *gasp* I know. Actually if you want the real scoop; There’s a lot of pretty exciting stuff happening at mi casa that took center stage above Cupcake Hero for a week. More deets here.

When I say this was a close call, trust me. This was a close call. By one vote. One stinking vote. Can you believe it? Obviously my taste testers loved both cupcakes but unfortunately “…only one can be the winner.” (It’s killing me that I can’t remember what show that’s from!!)

Congratulations Xiaolu! Please email me your address and I’ll ship off your prizes ASAP! My favorite comment from one of my taste tester’s was “Can I have another one?” HA! I think that tells you how awesome this cupcake was. Definitely deserving to be Cupcake Hero! If you would like the recipe to Xiaolu’s Caramelize Banana Creme Brulee Cupcake ~> Click here.

TIP: Heed Xiaolu’s advice about chilling the cupcake before brulee-ing the frosting. I froze the cupcake for an hour. If you don’t chill, it will melt and create a delicious swiss meringue buttercream hot mess all over your counter. This may or may not have happened to me. *wink* Don’t skip the caramelized banana either. The filling made this cupcake IMO.

Also wanted to say thanks to all the cup-testants for making Cupcake Hero’s comeback and great success. I hope we can continue that creative success into October. Do you have your baking caps on for Cupcake Hero::October? Deadline October 15th @ 11:59pm EST.

Be there or be quadrilateral. (Corny joke is an ode to my high school math teacher. You rock Mr. K!)
