LA Cupcake Challenge 2010

January 20, 2010 at 11:01 AM | Posted in cupcakes | 9 Comments

I know I was suppose to tell you all about Cupcake Hero’s February ingredient today but I made the executive decision (See? I can do that b/c this is MY blog!) to postpone it until tomorrow. Nothing like a little anticipation, eh? Don’t worry!

♪♫ Tomorrow. Tomorrow. I’ll love you. Tomorrow. It’s only a day away… ♪♫

(Don’t ask me why I have Orphan Annie musical on the brain. I blame the rain.)

Instead I HAVE TO talk to you about something I’m WAY too excited about!

(Via Drink Eat Play)

I must live in a bubble. I didn’t realize they had something like this! Cupcake Camp, yes. But Cupcake Challenge, no! Until my fellow cupcake friend, Kristin from Meringue Bakeshop, asked me if I were participating this year. I think my brow furrowed and I replied, “L-A-C-U-P-C-A-K-E-C-H-A-L-L-E-N-G-E ?”

So needless to say. I’m going. I’m going to support my friend. I get no joy out of eating 100s of cupcakes. Trust me. It’s all in the name of friendship. Maybe next year when I don’t have 2 baby showers, birthday and a housewarming to bake cupcakes for, I’ll try to participate. But Oy. 1000 cupcakes are A HECK OF A LOT of cupcakes to bake. Good luck with that Kristin!

I even reschedule our housewarming party so I could go. I’m a hard core cupcake-er. Don’t mess with my frosting.

Anyone else eating or participating or both? Love to meet up.

But I’m only signing autographs from 3-4pm. No exceptions. *smirk*

EDIT #1: People!! Did you see Kristin’s comment below? 50 cupcakes. And cocktails. Included NOT extra. I-N-C-L-U-D-E-D with the admission fee. This party was made for me. But please don’t crunkcake and drive. Any of my peeps wanna rent a limo? It will be like high school prom! HA HA

EDIT #2: Just found out via twitter that Monica from Two Parts Sugar (The same Monica who was on Cupcake Wars. The preggo one!) will also be at LA Cupcake Challenge. I’m drooling already…

EDIT #3: (Feb 9, 2010) Ugh. Found out Da Man changed the times on us little cupcake folk. I guess the story is that the hotel double booked the same ballroom so LA Cupcake Challenge event got bumped from 12noon-3pm to 4-7pm. Apparently Alice In Wonderland PR is more important than cupcakes. WHATTHEHELLMAN?!? I’m annoyed. I was looking forward to getting crunked on cupcakes+cocktails but now I’m not sure I can go. Boo FRIGGIN hoo.



  1. I will see you there!

  2. Awwwww THANK YOU!! Can’t wait to see you there! It’s going to be a lot of fun. I think people are going to be laying on the floors, crashing from all that sugar! 25 bakeries at 2 mini cupcakes each = FIFTY cupcakes per person! holy smokes. It’s a pretty good deal for only $40. Plus free milk and coffee and a BAR with COCKTAILS. I’ll need a few of those. LOL!

  3. It’s times like this I wish I lived in a big city! :( Have fun at the Cupcake Challenge. On a happy note, I WILL be attending “Chocolate Sunday” in New Orleans on January 31st. Can’t wait!

  4. Sounds SUPER DUPER fun. Alas, I am not 21 and not in LA when this is happening…maybe during the summer!

  5. Dang, I need to look for cheap flights to LA that weekend. Oh wait, I couldn’t eat any of it anyway. Unless they have a gluten free booth, that is. :-/

  6. YAY! PLEASE be sure to stop by our table and introduce yourself….can’t wait!

  7. Hey CB–
    I am going to try and make it to the challenge too; I have been counting down the days for a couple months now. It would be great to meet you (I am a friend of Amanda and Alanna) and an equally crazy cupcake lover like you. Also, I wanted to know if your cupcake stand (the one featured with the lady bug cupcakes) is from Martha Stewart? If not, where did you find it?


  8. Hey there! Any friend of Amanda and Alanna is a friend of mine :) Yes, my cupcake stand is from Martha Stewart’s line at Macys. I adore them. I have both the square and the round. <3 <3 <3

  9. A cupcake challenge??? Sounds fabulous – bring it to the UK, please!
