Remember last year’s 1000 Vegan Cupcakes for Charity?
We did it again this year, at Tower Bridge Bistro in the Embassy Suites Hotel.
This year, I was a part of the organizing crew. With over twelve bakeries participating and all 1000 cupcakes being gone in less than two hours, I would say the event was a huge success!
The proceeds from the event went to support local charities such as Animal Place and a Well-Fed World.
Unlike last year, when Eric and I were judges and ate way too many cupcakes, this time, I only tried a couple of them. By the time Eric showed up, most of them were gone.
As you may know, I am not a huge cupcake fan myself, but I was impressed with the cupcakes I tried. Over half the bakeries created gluten-free versions, and some were even oil-free.
I’m hoping that next year someone makes a raw cupcake. Yup, raw.
I’ll be looking forward to it 😉
Here’s a little iPhone photo recap.
Here I am with Leslie – just beginning to set up for the event.
24K Chocolate Cafe’s 24 Karat Cupcake with Sweet Potato Frosting.
Rebecca of Angelfood Vegan Treats created three different cupcakes. Eric and I (mostly Eric) had the gluten-free Chocolate Almond Butter Cup Cupcake.
Jed Soliz and Leslie set up the Garden Tower, a centerpiece for the event. This thing is really cool. It’s a vertical garden, perfect for urban gardening and for those of you who are short on space. The Garden Tower Project happily donated their Garden Tower to us for the event.
Judges’ Platters. Yup, it’s a hard job.
The cupcake organizing (and eating) crew. We had many more helpers, organizers, and planners, who all did an amazing job, but I didn’t get a chance to snap more photos.
Till next year….
