All-you-can-eat Cupcakes at Cake Moda’s Cupcake Wars – 9/25

August and September must be the months for food and drink festivals! Recently there was the SF Street Food Festival and the Eat Real Fest (I went to both); next there is the Gheradelli chocolate festival and Oktoberfest. One to look out for is Cake Moda’s Cupcake Wars, a cupcake bake-off at Fort Mason on Sept 25 from 4-9pm.

You can enter to participate in the contest as a professional or amateur, but for those of you who just want to eat, like myself, it’s a hefty $45 to enter. But if you go with 5 people, it’s $20/person. Isn’t that a sweet deal? Pun intended…

Winners will be judged for the following categories:

Best Overall Cupcake Design
Most Creative Use of ingredients
Most Likely to Be Eaten
Best Use of Theme
Best Overall Taste

Location: Fort Mason Center, Herbst Pavilion San Francisco, CA 94123

When: September 25th

Time: Open to the public 4pm to 9pm

Ticket Price: $45 Advance, $55 at the Door (4pm to 9pm)

Nothing Bundt Cake – Las Vegas

Rated: ♣♣♣♣♣

There are 2 things you should bring back from Vegas. One is a Capastrami sandwich from Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop and the other is a bundt cake from Nothing Bundt Cake. There’s a whole lot more, but these 2 are my fav.

The food:

My sis-in-law was kind enough to bring home 3 whole bundt cakes (about 4-5″ diameter) for us to try. Between 4 people, we ate it all.

She brought home 3 flavors – a marble, chocolate chocolate and a lemon. All were very moist and sticky. Unanimously, the marble was the favorite since it was less sweet compared to the other 2. The frosting to cake ratio was perfect.

I’d say this was better than any cupcake I’ve ever had. THAT’s a big statement.
