Are you the next Cupcake Hero?July 3, 2008 at 9:15 PM | Posted in Cupcake Hero, cupcakes | 30 Comments
If you don’t remember from my last Cupcake Hero entry (I wouldn’t blame you since my memory is crap too!), the CH staff is taking a summer hiatus so various members of the cupcake community stepped up to help Laurie cohost while she would be gone. I always tell her that she has my upmost respect for hosting a foodie event as big as Cupcake Hero. I know I couldn’t do it but I have to admit that I was curious to try. I got to talking to my bestest foodie friend, Nikki, on gchat and well… this is how the convo went.
CB: Hey you there?
CB: Wanna host Cupcake Hero with me? Laurie is looking for volunteers.
Nikki: Why would I wanna do that?
CB: b/c we’d be the first to oogle all the cupcake porn and choose a winner
CB: Let me rephrase. We’d have ultimate cupcake power over cupcake-ers for a month.
Nikki: Ok I’m in.
CB: Sweet! First cupcake domination… then the world! ::evil laugh::
(Conversation may or may not have happened exactly as written.)
Both Nikki and I thought long and hard about July’s theme. We wanted the theme to relate to the month, be able to give everyone the chance to be limitlessly (is that a word?) creative and above all – have fun!
I have to admit that since I am an attention whore it’s semi-related to me too! When ppl think of July they usually think of Independence Day. Am I right? Well fourth of July isn’t about fireworks and independence to me (ok well sorta). Its more about family, friends, gifts, cupcakes, candles and barbeque goodness! Yup! I was born on the fourth of July! Tom Cruise eat your heart out. So in celebration for the obvious holiday AND my 20-something birthday the theme is…
PS. Happy 4th of July everyone! Stay safe if you are playing with fireworks.
Theme: red, white AND blue
> All cup-ticipants must incorporate red, white AND blue into their cupcake entry.
> One ingredient per color. (Don’t be a smarta$$ and use food color. You can use it for one color but not all 3.)
> Get creative!
