So fun. Vanilla, Lucky Devil, Famous and Leyna's were the best.


OMG! The Paradise Cupcake from SugarJones was like nothing I've ever tasted before! Amazing. EASILY the BEST cupcake of the entire day!



Sugar heaven! Liked the little marshmellows ones but loved the strawberry hearts cupcakes. Too bad I did not catch their name.


The event was a lot of fun except that I think the ballots should have been more organized and maybe a list of all the cupcake shops and their flavors. There were so many different varieties it was hard to tell who was who in the end. My favorite was the red velvet from Famous cupcakes, it was moist and perfect.


I loved the strawberry ones from Leynas Kitchen!! Hands down stole the show with their strawberry tree and all. The strawberry aroma definately drew me back for seconds... the 2nd red velvet one i tasted was was rich too!! Cant remember the baker...What a great event I only wish they had water or milk for us to drink!
