What do you do with cupcakes gone awry? Judge them, of course! (And then eat them.)
Luckily, all the cupcake contest entries from Saturday’s event were utterly wrecktastic (it’s a good thing, I promise). The entries trickled in during a hilarious slide show of some of Jen and her husband’s favorite Cake Wrecks, followed by an illuminating q & a. Did you know, for instance, that Jen Yates has another blog?
Shortly thereafter, the contest got underway. I snapped pictures of some of my favorites:
My humble entry held up better than I expected, and survived a very perilous drive through Pasadena. It also appears in the official Cake Wrecks post on the event, which basically made my day.
Here’s a shot of all the wrecks!
Thanks to everyone who entered, everyone did an amazing job. There are some pretty amazing decorators in Pasadena, apparently – re-creating a wreck is harder than it looks! The winners of the competition walked away with fabulous prizes, including a carrot-jockey necklace and Wreck-inspired pins. Look at them, posing with their Wrecks!
It was an extremely successful event, over all, and left you all with a very happy (and sugar-coma’ed) blogger.
Mmmm, cupcakes. That absolutely delightful red velvet specimen was provided by Linda, of Sweet Art Cupcakes. She brought us some of the most beautiful cupcakes I have ever seen, and in copious amounts.
Anyway, a big thanks to everyone who came, plus special mention to our lovely ladies of cake: Jen Yates and Cake Wrecks, Linda and Sweet Art Cupcakes, and Connie, our events host (who picked this one up last minute so I could take pictures).
See you all next time for more sugary madness!
