Thanks, Harold!

For interested Cupcake Bakers, we have the answers to all of your Frequently Asked Questions. You can sign up by emailing cupcakes@thebrooklynkitchen.com!

Cupcake Cook-off? Wha?

Exactly. We are hosting the Third Annual Cupcake Cook-off at Union Pool, 484 Union Avenue, Monday May 11 from 7-9 PM. The cupcakes will be judged by our panel of cupcake judges, and winners will be announced.

Do I bake on-site?

No. All cupcakes must arrive baked, frosted, staged and assembled.

How many cupcakes?

Truly a question for the ages. We recommend that you bring as many cupcakes as you can possibly carry. We will require 6 cupcakes for judging, and the rest you will distribute to the ravenous crowd to win favor in the Popular Vote.

All one kind?

Totally up to you, might increase your chance of winning judged categories, but could dilute your showing for the popular vote. Or could sway people to buy votes for you. Not sure. But yes, you may enter more than one kind of cupcake.

Popular Vote?

We will be awarding the big prize (whoa!!!) to the winner of the Popular Vote poll. This year, we are doing things a little differently, so if you are in it to win it, you can do so pretty easily, if not cheaply.

And other Prizes?

We will be dividing the cupcakes into two categories, and awarding two prizes in each: Plain and Simple vs. Exotic, and Decoration vs. Flavor. Ergo, there will be four primary prizes: Plain and Simple Decoration, Exotic Decoration, Plain and Simple Flavor, and Exotic Flavor.

But like, what are the prizes?

We are still reeling them in, and will update as they appear, but so far we have:
Cupcake Couriers!
Nordicware Gift Cakelet Pan!

and more TK!

The rules stand largely the same for the Third Annual Cupcake Cook-off, as far as cupcake divisions goes.

We will be dividing the cupcakes into two categories, and awarding two prizes in each: Plain and Simple vs. Exotic, and Decoration vs. Flavor. Ergo, there will be four primary prizes: Plain and Simple Decoration, Exotic Decoration, Plain and Simple Flavor, and Exotic Flavor.

The big difference is the popular vote: we are selling out! I have given up on attempting any appearance of fairness. This will be a fundraiser for the Greenpoint Soup Kitchen, and to raise money we will be selling votes. The attendees can vote as early and as often as they’d like, they just have to pony up the bucks. Entrants can buy votes and vote for themselves because the popular vote category is ENTIRELY up for sale. We will still be awarding prizes to the judges’ picks, but the big one is all about the benjamins.

Freeloaders are welcome to come and eat cupcakes and not buy votes or give anything to the Soup Kitchen, if that’s how you roll. That’s fine. Whatever.

Hey there Cupcakers, two things:

1) You can sign up for the 2009 Cupcake Cookoff by sending us an email at cupcakes@thebrooklynkitchen.com. Free to join, but we are raising money for the Greenpoint Soup Kitchen by selling votes for the popularity prize, so if you want to win, you can pony up some cash and buy votes the old fashioned way!

2) Nordicware has graciously given us this awesome pan for a prize for the contest: a cupcake pan shaped like presents. I’m not always a gusher for cute stuff, but I know cute when I see it.

So excited about our growing pile o’ prizes for the Third Annual Cupcake Cookoff, to be held Monday, May 11 at Union Pool.

Today, we got in two Pink Cupcake Couriers that we will be giving away as prizes! Thanks goes out to Imagination International for this great prize!

If you don’t think you can wait until AFTER the cookoff to lug your cupcakes in this great carrier, you can order them online or pick them up in the store.
