The Couture Cakery – 2010 Harrisburg Cupcake Cup Professional Champion

I’m so excited to announce that I won 1st place again in this year’s Harrisburg Cupcake Cup for the 2nd year in a row. There were 14 entries in the professional division and the cupcakes all looked amazing!

I knew there would be some serious competition this year and wanted to do something different than the chocolate cupcake that I entered last year. I decided to create a ramped up version of my favorite Lemon Drop cupcake. My entry was a white cake with shortbread cookie crust on the bottom. Fresh lemon curd filling. Topped with a dollop of sweet traditional buttercream and on top of that a generous amount of Madagascar vanilla swiss meringue buttercream frosting. I decorated the cupcake with a lemon French macaron cookie and sugar butterfly and flowers.

There was a huge assortment of cupcakes for the hundreds of people who attended to benefit the Central PA Food Bank. The line was out the door for hours.

More cupcakes.

More cupcakes. Love the sundae one!

These adorable cupcake lovers enjoyed hitting the cupcake table several times!

I also got to judge the amateur division. Here are my cupcakes for tasting.

Here they are after. The sweet potato cupcake with sweet buttercream icing was my favorite.

What a great event for a wonderful cause. Congratulations and thanks to Erica Streisfeld for organizing the 2010 Harrisburg Cupcake Cup.
