Laura and I have truly launched into the cupcake scene with our b+l bakehouse name after last week’s Cupcakes and Cocktails event to benefit the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation. We, along with 6 other bakeries, provided 250+ mini cupcakes for the guests to enjoy along with cocktails throughout the evening, and ultimately be voted on by a guest judge panel of local news anchors as well as the people. Our competition was a little intimidating as the event drew in the local big names like Georgetown Cupcake, Red Velvet, and Cake Love along with several others. We won for “best small bakery” (small meaning no storefront). But the true excitement of the evening came when we took home the greatest honor “People’s Choice”. One article that we were written up in even said we won “overwhelmingly”! We are so beyond thrilled that our cupcakes were THAT good! I mean, WE know they are, haha, but good to know that they truly compete (and beat) the big name competition.
Here are links to the articles:
