Cupcake Wars at the Salt Lake Tribune Home and Garden Festival

Do you watch Cupcake Wars?

I don't, but I guess a lot of people do. It's probably a great show! I wouldn't know, I don't have a TV*.

This Saturday I'm participating in a real life cupcake wars at the Salt Lake Tribune Home and Garden Festival at the South Towne Expo Center. March 9th, 2:00pm. We're supposed to make cupcakes for the audience and to be judged by a panel. And we have AN HOUR. Holy mackerel, that's not a lot of time.

I have an idea of what I want to do, but I am super nervous about the time constraints. I would absolutely be one of those people on a cooking show whose sauce didn't make it on the plate. I would lose the Quickfire Challenge. Being in a cupcake wars does not change my inability to manage time. This is going to be a nail biter, that's all I'm saying.

I'm also saying that you should come! The audience gets to try our cupcakes and vote for their own favorite! Wait, what if the other participants have already rallied their neighbors and friends to come down to the festival and vote for their cupcakes? I have really not thought through this strategy at all. I guess I would lose at Survivor, too.

My readers get a $4 discount on the ticket price for the festival! I'll let you know the code as soon as I know it. You don't have to vote for my cupcake if you don't think it's the best. I'll have no way of knowing if you don't--they're not handing us your name and your vote, so I won't even be able to exact culinary revenge, if that's your concern.

Cupcake War March 9th, 2:00pm

Come!  Cupcakes!

*Of course I have a TV, but don't you love how smug people sound when they don't have a TV? I didn't have a TV growing up and it turned me into an addict. So there. Not, like, a heroin addict, or a meth-head or anything, I just really like TV. Come eat a cupcake, OK?

How do we get the discount on tickets?

I don't even know what cupcakes are because I am too busy not watching tv.

I'm the reverse. I grew up watching way too much tv and now I don't have one. I watch one show through hulu on our computer, but otherwise I don't miss it.
