The number of cupcake flavors that exist all around the world are as diverse as the number of combinations anyone can make with the ingredients available. Our Cupcake Contest for 2012 launched a search for the most creative cupcake that yielded hundreds of very creative and truly unique entries. Don’t believe those that say Cupcakes are on the way out!
As usual, the entries were well thought out, hunger-inducing and certainly original. There are some very creative folks out there!
Entries were judged on the following:
Frosting: Flavor, type, texture are all important and was looked at critically. How well does the frosting marry to the cake? Does the frosting compliment the cake?
Cake: We were looking for moistness, flavor, and texture. Would the cake support the frosting well? Would the whole thing collapse after you take a bite?
Presentation: How pleasing would the cupcake be to the eye? Are the icing colors appropriate for the flavor? Does the cupcake have flair? Originality?
Ease of Access: Is it too hard to get the wrapper off & when you do get it off, does the cake hold together or would it make a mess?
Cupcake-ness: Does it remind you of a cupcake or does it push things too far?
A maple-flavored cake with caramelized banana filling and Nutella frosting, topped with peanut brittle pieces. The sweetness of bananas and the exquisite goodness of Nutella are two reasons why we selected Sloane as one our winners.
