Indulgence cupcakes

The Vancouver Cupcake Throwdown is back for its fourth year, this time taking place at East Vancouver’s Fortune Sound Club, with 25 pro and home bakers vying for cupcake supremacy. This tasty event raises important funds for several organizations: the Friends of Raincity Housing, Five Star Footy, and Leaky Heaven Youth.

I attended the first throwdown and was wowed by so many of these little masterpieces. The images I chose for this post should give you an idea as to how gorgeous (and delicious!) these creations are.

The mission of the Cupcake Throwdown is to bring community together through culinary adventures, trying to make the world a better place…one cupcake at a time. Since 2009, Lower Mainland bakers have been going head to head for title of best Vancouver cupcake.

Along with the chance to purchase beautifully decorated gourmet cupcakes, there will be prizes and a raffle, made possible with the support of Gastown and Downtown Eastside merchants.

Comedienne Erica Sigurdson will serve as the Throwdown MC with DJ Hebegebe spinning the tunes, promising an evening of sugar-induced fun. If you’re interested in becoming a sponsor, contact Stephanie at: vancouver.cupcake.throwdown [at]
