Last night was iron cupcake competition, the theme was Christmas, quite appropriate considering the time of year. We both entered, me with a disguised Christmas cake muffin with orange brandy icing and Mitsu entered her white chocolate “I am dreaming of a white Christmas” cupcake.
There was a record number of entrants, 44 cupcakes! The room was packed with people, cakes and cupcake carriers. The organisers had to set up a second table for entrants. Unfortunately there were only 4 vegan entrants, two which were ours. The other two we got to try where chocolate cranberry and chocolate mint. Both very nice, we are always more than happy to eat other vegan cakes. All in the name of research you know!
Santa put in an appearance. Thanks for the lovely cupcake/muffin cases santa. Last night there was a special festive prize for santas favourite cupcake and who should take home the best prize of the night? MITSU – hurrah. She got an iron cupcake bag and a cupcake tree. Well done Mitsu.
The theme for February is love. Get baking and come along people.
