The Great Cupcake Smackdown

Chef Kristia Paz of Little Cake Bakery is ready to rumble.

There's very little more that I love than a good cupcake.

It has to have the right ratio of cake to icing and moisture is a must.  On the Sugar Coma tours, I've found that I'm not alone in my love of all things little cake and have decided to build a swanky event around the best cupcakes in Atlanta.

Enter The Great Cupcake Smackdown on July 11, 2010!  It's a competition hosted by The Broke Socialite Does... which pits some of the best chefs and bakers in the city against each other in pursuit of the best cupcake in town.  Each participant will be required to make a red velvet cupcake and a baker's choice cupcake.  There will be a celebrity judges' (Suchita Vadlamani of Fox 5 News and Donna Rodriguez of Dishing With Donna) choice and peoples' choice winner for each category.  Are you in a Sugar Coma after thinking about it? Ha! Me too.  I can.not.wait!

The trash talking has already begun.

The following chefs/bakers will enter their goods:

Interested in participating and tasting? Get your tickets here! Limited tickets available.

What's YOUR favorite cupcake?


  1. I LOVE IT!!! What a great fun trouble maker you are LOL..

  2. This is such a GREAT idea!! You guys make me wanna move to Atlanta sooner than later lol Good Luck!

  3. Are you a judge? I would make myself a judge if it were my event! YUM!

  4. I mourn not having any more cupcakes, gluten allergy! But I lick me some icing!

  5. Starbucks used to have it - it was a black and white cupcake. BUT the white batter was like a cheesecake and the rest was chocolate cupcakey goodness. It was all swirled around....ooooooh, that was gooooooooood.

    I made it once. It was pretty close ;) Lookin' forward to the Smackdown!

  6. Still craving a cupcake for breakfast! I used to be addicted to muffin tops from a local bakery, but I wonder if they make cupcake tops? LOL But it sure sounds good!

  7. I know red velvet is really popular, but I just can't bring myself to ingest all that red dye! I like a vanilla or lemon cupcake made with unbleached flour and unsalted butter.

  8. Or a carrot cupcake with cream cheese frosting!
