The Annual Gardiner, NY Cupcake Festival at Wright’s Farm
May 14th 2016 from 12 to 6pm
…and I’m a judge!
Judging a cupcake bake-off is a daunting task but some one has to do it. I’m up for the challenge. With a refined skill-set known to few, I have been invited to judge the Amateur Cupcake Contest. As a connoisseur of the cupcake, I guess you could say that I’ve been training for this all my life.
Maybe this year you might like to test your culinary skills & enter the Amateur Cupcake Contest.
Join me and peruse over 30,000 cupcakes in one location.
The categories being judged this year will be:
- Best Tasting Chocolate Cupcake
- Best Tasting Candy Bar Inspired Cupcake
- Best Animal Decorated Cupcake
- Best Star Wars Themed Cupcake (Kathleen – I will send photos!)
So, what makes up a good cupcake?
The Anatomy of a Good Cupcake is an important factor when judging a cupcake.
- Ratio of cake to icing
- Design and Style – overall good looks
- Creative use and presentation
You Can’t Buy Happiness, But You Can Buy a Cupcake!
Don’t forget the 5K Cupcake Classic in the morning, 9 am rain or shine. Run through the apple and peach orchards with some spectacular views of the mountains. If you need more info be sure to contact Wright’s Farm for more details and to sign up early.
The event has something for everyone. A day full of cupcakes, a 5K ,food, music, local vendors, wine tasting being held every year at Wright’s Farm in Gardiner, NY. What a fun way to spend the afternoon. Please note that this is a pup friendly event. NO cupcakes for Fido please. Remember that chocolate is poison to our furry friends. I do believe that there will be a few vendors selling treats that are more suited for them.
I look forward to being a part of this event and tasting some amazing cupcakes. Join me on May 14th and you too can taste a cupcake, or two, or three. The Hudson Valley has a festival for almost everything. What a fun way to spend a wonderful spring day. Rain or shine, I’ll be there. Come in and say hello. Let me know what your favorite cupcakes are. I’d love to know.
