Martha Stewart show, a photopost

Cupcakes Take the Cake and some cupcake-lovin' friends went to a taping of the Martha Stewart show a couple /few days ago. The show will air, I think, this Wednesday (the day after the inauguration), January 21. You can check local listings here. It was a cupcake-themed show (of course!) and I was thrilled to see two of my favorite bakeries featured: Butter Lane and Sweet Revenge. They are both highlights of NYC bakeries and so deserving of the accolades.

Anyway, here's my photopost of the show; I'll leave reviews and opinions to Rachel or Nichelle, both of whom attended the show.

Okay, so it was SO cold! I arrived a bit early and the line was already quite long:

Rachel was there, and Brownie of the famous Blondie and Brownie, too. (A sweeter woman could not be found. More on that to come.)

Brownie brought pupcakes for Martha! I would never have thought of such a nice gesture. She made pupcakes for Martha's new puppy (Genghis Khan).

At this point, I was pointedly asked to put my camera away. So, we'll pick back up at the end of the show. You'll have to watch the show to see what happens. (Oooh -- the suspense!)

So, it's now after the show and I've whipped my camera back out.

One of the cupcakes Martha's show fed us:

I will say this: I felt Martha could have done better. I would have preferred a Butter Lane or Sweet Revenge cupcake! I had a serious Sweet Revenge "Pure" cupcake crave. Mmm...Mexican vanilla (from Utah?)! (Again, you'll have to see the show to understand that.)

I went to the show on 10/29/08 with my grandmother for her 83rd birthday. She loves Martha and thinks she is a hoot. We had a cold and rainy morning. We saw the Georgetown Bakery episode with the election cupcakes.

I even got to ask Martha a question about fondant at the end of the segment.

We loved being on the show and just loved Joey. The music between the segments was great.

We received a book, a magazine and one cupcake in a pink box with black ribbon from Georgetown Bakery at the end of the show.

I would difinately go on the show again.
