IRON CUPCAKE: Toronto (Halloween)


Today I competed in my first ever cupcake competition. It was called Iron Cupcake and put on by a cupcake shop downtown called "For The Love of Cake." I was not sure what to expect, seeing as how this was my first competition ever, so I went the simple, yet classic route and created a pumpkin cupcake with cream cheese frosting.

We were able to set up a display showcasing our inspiration with a large version of our "mini cupcakes." I decided on a fall theme, to showcase the pumpkin flavour, while others focused more on the Halloween aspect.

These are my cupcakes for the display, with an orange fondant pumpkin.

I was amongst some amazing competition when it came to the display aspect of the competition...Here are some pictures of the fierce competitors.
