Cupcake Smackdown 2.0 Austin

When I found out about the Cupcake Smackdown 2.0 in downtown Austin I knew attendance was a must. How could a passionate baker, cupcake lover and blogging enthusiast not? Admission was free, although donations benefiting Lights, Camera, Help,  Mobile Loaves and Fishes, and Keep Austin Dog Friendly were suggested. The days line up had great promise: there were a couple opportunities to participate in the breaking of Guinness World Records, some awesome local bakeries to try out, a cupcake pinata and a cupcake cannon!

Not only did I get to taste some awesome cupcakes, but I also had the opportunity to write up a report of the days events for Cupcakes Take the Cake- a great blog about everything cupcakes! I didn't have a chance to do much baking this weekend due to some good quality time on Lake Austin so recipes will be coming later this week, but in the mean time head on over and keep reading about the Cupcake Smackdown!

Happy Monday and Happy Baking!!
