A couple of weekends ago I was in All in One BakeShop picking up some supplies and I happened to notice a flier on one of the racks...'Inneresting,' I thought. I love cupcakes, and I love smackdowns! I visited the blog link for it and contacted Jennie, who is the organizer for it all and I have signed myself up for the chocolate and freestyle categories in the amatuer baking contest. I have decided to submit my coconut lime cake in the freestyle contest, obviously with some modifications to it. I recently had a mojito at my folks' house and so I have perfected my recipe to be more like a mojito. Yum!
For the chocolate category, I am toying with a couple of things and right now I am working developing a cherry chili chocolate recipe that should be uber tasty. My only snafu so far is the cherry part. I want more of the flavor to come through, but it isn't yet. I ahave a little less than a week and a half to figure out. If I opt for something else, I'm not sure what I'll do, but I will think of something!
Until then, visit the embedded link above to check out more info on the Smackdown. It should prove to be very fun and I can't wait! My first contest!
