Can I get a woot woot?? LA Cupcake Challenge baby!


Who would have thought that less than a year after I became an official business, I’d be participating in THE LA CUPCAKE CHALLENGE?!?!

That’s right readers! I’m doing it! I went back and forth for a while but, with the support of my friends, I’ve decided to just go for it. I am not going to lie. I am a little nervous. Not really about competing but about baking all those cupcakes!! 1100 to be exact. Crazy right? Give me strength! LOL

So here is the info…
Date: Feb 20, 2010 Time: 12p-3p Where: Renaissance Hotel in Hollywood
Cost: $40 per person
But for that price you’ll get at least 40 mini cupcakes. That’s if you don’t go back to one of the tables for seconds, if you dare! They will also have a DJ, photo booth, free milk and coffee, and a cash bar. And attendees get ballots too!

There are two categories to compete in – Traditional and Original. And I believe there will be a People’s Choice category as well.

So which cupcakes am I bringing? Well, it’s secret. It’s not one of the flavors on my menu. It’s two brand new flavors! Don’t worry! I’ve put them in front of my own personal panel of judges and these two new flavors were voted the best of the bunch. If you want to know, you’ll just have to show up!

To get your tickets, visit
Are you on Facebook? RSVP on their group site (you’ll still need to buy tickets though)

If you are near by, I would LOVE for you to come and support Meringue Bake Shop. I’m playing to win! I’m not baking all these cupcakes for nothin! Come cheer me on!

Even if you aren’t near by, I’d still love your support and cheer! Blog and/or tweet about it. Spread the Meringue Bake Shop love! That will make me very swirly. Awwww…
