What fun! It was Cupcake Camp time here in Columbus! The third event was held at the North Market and was booked to capacity.
I was a judge in the Vegan Cupcake category. The offerings were all delicious! It was so hard to choose. The other judges in my category were Amy Turn-Sharp of Little Alouette and Jennie Scheinbach of Pattycake Bakery. Getting to hang out with these two small-business superstars was a real treat. Plus, they are simply awesome ladies. Jennie really knows her vegan baking and I learned a lot.
The winner was a deliciously light-tasting Basil-Lemon cupcake. Sounds weird and at first I wasn’t too jazzed about tasting it, but it was DELISH.
Here is a winner of one of the other categories in her AmyD apron! She’s so cute and her red hair looks PERFECT with the apron! Thanks, Mandy for letting me take a pic.
On a sadder note, The Kickstart has closed. It makes me sad because they are seriously, the nicest people you will have the pleasure of meeting. I hope they know how much folks loved the place. I hope they get some sleep!
