#148 – The Great Cupcake Smackdown – This Sunday, July 11, 2010 – Be There for Sweet Cupcake Goodness!


If you aren’t familiar with Shameeka Ayers, a.k.a. The Broke Socialite, let me introduce you to her fabulous world. I first “met” Shameeka on Twitter (follow her @brokesocialite) and was fascinated reading about her Sugar Coma tours through Atlanta. Shameeka has created amazing food tours throughout Atlanta: Sugar Coma, a tour of desserts and sweets; Graze, a tour of “small bites”; Freeze, a tour of fantastic frozen delights; and coming up, Smoked Over, a tour of BBQ joints. (And her Sugar Comas are branching out into other cities! Coming up, Baltimore, Washington DC, Charleston, Savannah…and many more!)

This weekend – on Sunday, July 11, 2010 from 1:00 to 4:00 PM – The Broke Socialite is serving up some more sweet goodness at her latest swanky soirée, The Great Cupcake Smackdown. Here’s how it will work: a number of local chefs and pastry chefs will be competing for the title of “best cupcake.” Each chef will be required to prepare a red velvet cupcake and a second cupcake, chef’s choice, which gives them more license to go a little cupcake-crazy. Celebrity judges AND attendees will get to taste all of the cupcakes and vote for their favorites. After much cupcake-eating and trash-talking, prizes will be awarded for Celebrity Judges’ Choice and Peoples’ Choice. To tempt you further, here’s a list of chefs/bakers who have entered the fray:

  • Black Tie Barbecue
  • Cupcake Love Bakery
  • Daisy’s Desserts
  • Holly’s Cupcake Shop
  • Little Cake Bakery
  • Pink Cupcake Dreams
  • Sassy Cupcakes
  • Simply Sweet Cupcakes & More
  • Sweet Deal Bakery
  • West Egg Cafe

It’ll be an afternoon you won’t want to miss, complete with a spinning DJ, libations, door prizes and networking with other food-lovers from all around the Atlanta area.  Your ticket covers admission and a cupcake tasting spread that you won’t believe! And it’s only $25 for this delicious event!

Here’s the catch – tickets are extremely limited. At last check, there were only 15 tickets left! Click here to get yours now so you can be a part of the first ever The Broke Socialite Does…The Great Cupcake Smackdown!
