For anyone wondering how I did in the baking competition, it was not a success. Apparently someone decided that the desserts and the clothing should be judged TOGETHER, and thus my cupcakes lost to someone in the company t-shirt, blue jeans, blue-tinted sunglasses, and a blue plastic top-hat. The prize was a gift basket...filled with baking supplies. Clap. Clap. Clap.
For the "Second Annual" contest, I'll be sure to bring a tiered Blue Velvet cake, tint my icing, and deliver it in blue stilettos and an electric blue, floor length ball gown with a cathedral-length train, studded with blue LEDs. Oh, and a plastic hat.
