If the answer is maybe, or yes, then you need to get buying or baking.  That’s right you can buy your cupcakes, the only rule is that you need to decorate the cupcake yourself with Jelly Belly Jelly Beans or other Jelly Belly candy!  This competition is therefore great for kids and parents alike!  Best of all you’ll be in the running to win $10,000!!

You have plenty of time to create your masterpiece and load it to the Jelly Belly website. Form more information or to enter, click here!

Cupcake apron comp needs your votes

By on Saturday, November 6th, 2010

Over at Bake and Destroy you will find a lot of action at the moment as the cupcake apron competition draws to a close.  The competition set was to design what you would like to see in an apron.  The images are a collection of ideas and other pictures to create a story board of inspiration for the apron itself.

There are now six finalists, nautical, peacock, bad spice, bones, cherry rockabilly and lucha libra.  Here we feature the Peacock design by Lisa Chen, but you can see all the designs here.  To vote simply leave a comment and given there are prizes for voters too, why not!?

For me, I can’t decide!!!  I love the Nautical design and the Cherry Rockabilly!

Voting closes on the 12th November.

Cupcake Competitions Coast to Coast

By on Thursday, February 11th, 2010

February isn’t just about presidential federal holidays or your valentine…it’s also about bare-knuckles cupcake smackdowns.  The East Coast brings us the Iron Cupcake Challenge on February 28th at the Tortilla Press Cantina. Open to the amateur and the baking professional, the fifth annual Iron Cupcake Challenge will center (like its namesake) around one special ingredient: chilies.  Cost to participate is $15 for adults and $7 for kids under 12, and the proceeds from this event will go towards earthquake relief in Haiti.

From the left coast we have the third annual Cupcake Challenge on February 20th at the Hollywood Renaissance Hotel. Over 20 Southern California cupcakeries will go head to head for the honor of becoming the Cupcake Challenge Champion. Since it’s LA, there’s a celebrity judge panel, but members of the public in attendance at the event also get an equal vote.  20 different cupcakes to sample, $40 at the door – if you have room in your stomach, the math works out in your favor.
