Vicious and Virtuous: Great ideas come from charity event

18 Apr 2010, Posted by JK in Pastry Events

This past Saturday afternoon seven bakers threw down at Willie McBrides Bar in Hoboken, NJ to benefit Autism Speaks.  I was very impressed with the overall quality and creativeness of the contestants.  Some of the other judges, who bake for a living even got some new ideas after eating the desserts from these plucky bakers.  Here are the results:

Congratulations are in order:

  • “Green”-est baker- “Color Jam” with their Raw Coconut Dream Drops
  • Best Presentation- The Measuring Cup – Vanilla Cupcake with Port Wine reduction and cinnamon butter cream.
  • Most Unique Ingredient- “Random Random Bake Shop” with their Bacon Chocolate Baklava
  • Sexiest Baker- “Muppet Force” Cassie and Alyssa with their Chocolate and organic coconut mini-cupcakes
    AND..finally
  • Best In Show: Congratulations to Jessica Engle’s and The Measuring Cup – who took top honors with their Vanilla Cupcake with Port Wine reduction and cinnamon butter cream.

    the event was really so much fun! thanks to everyone for coming! the event raised about $600 for autism speaks & i’m sure next year we’ll raise even more. diana was pretty fantastic for putting this together.

    this was my first baking competition & i’m glad muppet force was a hit. i’m hoping to find out about more local contests in the future & keep on bringing the sexy to my confections!

    Yes, all the bakers did a really nice job. I think this event could get huge in the coming years.
