Cupcake Taste-off!

Mel Hobbs from Take the Cake who has been selling her delicious cupcakes at the market for about 4 years. She is moving on to the greener and colder pastures back of the UK and so we had an opening for another cupcake stall.
Now we get numerous application every month for cupcake vendors and so we dedicated last week, Friday as the day in which we receive cupcake samples and do a comparative tasting.

Cupcakes of all tastes and sizes were delivered and with a small panel of judges, we dug into the treats.


A big thank you to all the cupcake vendors who participated - Cupcake Mom, Baker Belle, Cupsy Cakes and Smith's Bakeshop. As you can imagine, it was a hard decision to make.

We decided that Smith's Bakeshop with their delicate balance of flavours and textures, the use of good quality ingredients and perfect cake to icing ratio were the winners. They also do a savoury butternut and pecan cupcake with sour cream and chive 'icing' topped with BACON JAM! That blew our minds.

Welcome, Smith's Bakeshop to the i heart Market family!
