cupcake fail

Above, you see an abandoned prototype for my entry in the upcoming Ottawa Veg Fest Cupcake Challenge. Yikes. I can bake cupcakes like no one's business, but do I ever need to work on my icing. Good thing I have the coming week off work, I can give myself a frosting crash course.



If you're in Ottawa, maybe you want to come to Veg Fest this year. I'll confess that I've never been, mostly because I don't like crowds. But this year I will brave the crowds in the name of competing with my fellow vegan bakers in the aforementioned cupcake competition. Which is making me tense. This may be my first and last baking competition. Eeg.

I can't wait to try out your creations! Do you want to borrow my icing bag and tips?

Good luck Jennifer! Assuming your creations are as tasty as they are lovely (which I will assume they are), you do not need to be nervous! Good luck!

Cupcake Prototype is the name of my K Records band.

Good luck! I love the buttercream recipe from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World... You can't go wrong with Earth Balance. The chocolate version makes you drool, seriously.

Gotta say, icing or no, that looks pretty darn yummy.

Thanks for the shout out Jennifer!

I think the cupcake looks pretty good - but then, I'm no good at cupcake-baking or icing-making. I'm pretty stoked for vegfest though, I missed it last year but the first year it was awesome and I can only imagine how much it's improved!

Sounds fun! I just might go to that event! Best of luck with you cupcakes!:)
