Cupcake Wars in Germany!

This past weekend, an organization in my community held a Cupcake Wars to raise money to support the 2nd Squadron, 2nd Cavalry Regiment here at USAG Bavaria: Grafenwoehr/Vilseck, Germany.

Five local bakers participated with three prizes to win for Best Overall, Best Presentation and Most Delicious!

Of course, I participated!

I made Oreo cupcakes and topped them with Oreo balloon pops and themed my table with more balloons and in red and white!  The entire event was lot of fun and raised a good amount of money for a great cause! 

For all the details... check out my post over at JavaCupcake

Here's the Cupcake Royale cupcake sundae

It's got ice cream, whipped cream and a cupcake! I said no to hot fudge. It's intense, as befitting an $8 dessert. More photos later but I had to share this.

Greetings from Cupcake Royale in Seattle

I'm about to try a cupcake sundae with their peanut butter and honey cupcake! Full report to come.
