My friend Tracy has been hosting a cupcake competition for “Best Taste” and “Most Original Theme” for many years. This year was the first time I participated and I have to tell you, that I was blown away by the design and artistry of her competing baker friends. Guest judge was Desiree Kelly the owner of The Makery a local bakery specialized in wedding cakes, parties and classes.

@Merut: My friend Marty won first place in "Original design" with her "Buffalo Chicken Hot Wing Meatloaf Cupcakes". Mine are the "Chocolate Cupcakes with Caramel Filling, Vanilla Cream Cheese Frosting and Salted Caramel". I am sure you can tell I need a lot of help with my decorating skills, but I won first price for "Best Taste".

I love the brownie sliders. So adorable! Obviously there were plenty of artists there. So which one won first place? And which cupcakes were yours?

What a great time. They all look amazing but I really love those pound cake "fries."

New to your site. Love it here already. Can't wait to poke around some more.

Lots of yummy love,
Alex aka Ma What's For Dinner

Wow – that is the coolest most creative looking collection of cupcakes I have ever seen! How much fun you all must have had, especially getting to try them all. I wouldn't know which one to try first – I wonder what the Champagne flavored ones taste like? They are all so cool:)

Oh my goodness!!! What a creative bunch of friends you have. These are so amazing and what fun time you must have all had. Who wouldn't want to go to this party??? Thanks so much for sharing this with us.

Looks like such fun but what I have to know…do you plan to give us your winning recipe? You say salted caramel and I'm always in!

Great idea and such amazing cupcakes too, it would be a shame to eat them!

What a great selection of sweet and savory cupcakes. Love the brownie sliders and the margarita cupcakes.

Oh boy what great fun! I wish I cold attend something like this! And the cupcake inventions are incredibly creative! Yay all of you!

I love looking at the pictures, though it solidifies my opinion that I will never have the creativity to compete in a cupcake competition 🙂 Still, I would love to judge one!!

A bloggy friend sent me a link to your post. How much fun is this!! I love the ones that look like sliders especially. So fun!

That was Tracy's 3 year for the party and I am already looking forward to next year. What a great group of talented, beautiful, strong women who I am proud to call my friends.
HUGS, Cindy
