Winner of Broccoli Cupcake Contest To Be Crowned Tomorrow



I learned something fun to do this weekend from Morsel Code, the Scene dining newsletter put together by my colleague Brent Rolen:

When Calie Shackleford discovered that some people were visiting her Broccoli Cupcake blog in search of an actual recipe for the namesake, she decided to turn to her readers with the Broccoli Cupcake Recipe Contest.

Shackleford partnered with The Painted Cupcake's Tracey Davenport, who tried all the submissions and selected three finalists: Carlene Helble's broccoli cupcakes with hummus, Maiah Aldi's Garden Fairy Cakes and Rober Bosley's apple-cinnamon broccoli cupcakes.

The final judgment will take place at 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 30, at The Painted Cupcake (235 Fourth Ave. N.), and you can help decide the winner of the title and a $150 Visa gift card. Besides samples of the finalists' broccoli cupcakes for voting, there will be special deals on (normal) cupcakes, a coloring station for kids and a raffle every 30 minutes for Painted Cupcake gift cards and children's baking sets.
