Cupcakes, Parties, and Prizes

Spicy Gingerbread Cupcakes with Tahitian Vanilla Frosting
Brownie and I have two very important events coming up: tonight, the Brooklyn Kitchen's Third Annual Cupcake Cook-off and next week, Abby Denson's City Sweet Tooth Blogiversary Party!

Spicy Gingerbread Cupcake
First up, tonight's hot event, the Cupcake Cook-off, and of course, the reigning exotic flavor winner will be there to defend her title, this time with me in tow-hopefully wearing a very special limited-edition shirt that you have to see to believe. This year Brooklyn Kitchen has decided to do things a little differently. There will still be winners in the same four main categories: Plain and Simple Decoration, Exotic Decoration, Plain and Simple Flavor, and Exotic Flavor, but when it comes to Popular Vote, the rules have changed. The vote will double as a fundraiser for the Greenpoint Soup Kitchen, and it's best to let them describe it-"the attendees can vote as early and as often as they’d like, they just have to pony up the bucks. Entrants can buy votes and vote for themselves because the popular vote category is ENTIRELY up for sale." And well, we all know that means I will be voting for Brownie's cupcake, which should be delicious. So, all of you should try to come out to Williamsburg tonight, have a beer and a cupcake, and let's raise some money!

Roni Sue's Pig Candy!
The second big event is the blogiversary party for The City Sweet Tooth, the dessert blog that incorporates cartoons. Brownie and I are always fans of fantastic illustrators, especially ones that draw baked goods-quick shout out to Cakespy! Now a few weeks ago, Abby approached us wanting to know if we could go to her party, and be able to participate in a short Q&A. Of course, we said yes-this will mark the beginning of my Memorial Day weekend celebration. The official invite is up on Abby's site, there will be other surprise guests, sweets from Chickalicious and Roni-Sue among others, and lots of fun prizes!! So, if you don't have plans for next Thursday, RSVP for this, RSVP now!

Brooklyn Kitchen Cupcake Cook-off starts around 7pm and will last as long as we have cupcakes.
