A great night at The Food and Wine Festival of Baldwin Park 2011

I baked 300 cupcakes today, thinking that it was enough for the Food and Wine Festival of Baldwin Park. However, I was mistaken. An hour and a half into the event we were out of cupcakes. It was nice to see people come back to the table for seconds and thirds. The Breakfast in bed was the most popular. Chocolate Pistaccio came in second and third popular choice was Papayo.

The cupcakes were such a hit that we couldn't supply fast enough. As soon as we would put a plate on the table they disappeared. And though we only received 15 People's choice tokens, (we lost to Capitol Grille )I was excited to be able to help such a great cause. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is a great cause so if you have not done so yet, support them!

Okay, maybe I'm a little bumbed we didn't win one of the awards. "Best Presentation" at the very least. I mean I had roses decorating the tower, beautiful wine glasses with roses holding up the tower, 65 roses decorated cupcakes AND a cute laminated card with the 65 roses logo and explanation of where 65 roses came from. Oh well, I was up against good old steak and wine. I will have to rethink my strategy for next year.

Here a few pics for you all to enjoy!

Until next time!
