I was asked to post this event below, and it reminded me of how I once entered the blogsphere Iron Cup Cake Challenge with my Devilish Blueberry Chutney Chocolate Sideways creation spinning on your palate, but I did not win. I had fun though! Seems befitting since I live in the Blueberry capital of the world and they have hit the market all over here in New Jersey- my cupcake is filled with a blueberry chutney, powder sugar butter icing, with white chocolate shavings and a blueberry swish on the plate for an added artistic touch. Also this was taken before my photography skills improved, somewhat.
Iron Cupcake Challenge for Charity hosted by Kati's Kupcakes of Moorestown, NJ is gearing up for the next cupcake throw down!!! This time, the recipient of our challenge will be the Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis Foundation. In fact, we will have a special judge, Miss Kelly Rouba who is a JRA spokesperson/advocate, a journalist, public speaker and young woman with a strong passion to help others who, like herself, have lived with the disease.
We look forward to having a fun challenge at a great restaurant!! That restaurant is, THE ONE AND ONLY--POP SHOP, Collingswood, NJ.
The July theme for the contest is CANDY!! Go Candy Crazy and have a ball creating some unique, delicious and unbeatable candy cupcake creations to bring before our panel of judges and you just may be our newest Iron Cupcake Champ!! Can our current champ hold on to the crown, or do you have an amazing recipe to take over the reigns? We have NEVER HAD A REPEAT IRON CUPCAKE CHAMP in the history of our contests!! With so many members in our group now, well over one hundred, we are constantly being sought out by the media to see what all the fuss is about!
This event will be in the print edition of NJ Monthly mag and the last event will be in the Burlington County Times!! I bet we can have a great summer charity event at the PopShop-fun for the whole family and supporting a very worthy cause. Hope you can all make the next Iron Cupcake Challenge for Charity!!
We need your support to make it all work! Last month we had an incredibly successful event and raised funds and awareness for the Animal Welfare Association of NJ--they were so excited and I know we can do it again!! First prize is $100!!
