As predicted, the germs that were rudely blown on my husband have now taken residence in my system and I am now sick as well. In fact, I’ve been ill since late last week and what started out as feelings of thirst soon morphed into major chest congestion and is now a burning type of throat pain. Ugh!
However, despite feeling like crap, on the weekend, I still managed to make 24 cupcakes and make it to the cupcake camp without keeling over or killing somebody. Yay!
Sunday-the day of the camp-basically went like this. We waited in line to register my cupcakes. And once that was done, the cupcakes were photographed and put around a room:
Next, we went into a different room and waited, quietly coughing in the corner until all the other bakers and ‘tasters’ descended on Jack Purcell Center like a horde of locusts:
It was so packed in there and with the lack of windows, breathing was challenging. But then finally, the cupcakes started coming and there was a mad dash to be at the front of the tables to get one.
I was mainly interested in photographing my two creations-black forest and vanilla lime (featured at the back of the plate)- when it was their turn to be judged and eaten:
This was two seconds after the plate was dropped and already someone’s going for the cupcakes! LOL.
So that was my weekend, well apart from buying some more reading material and hacking up phlegm. I’m going to go to bed now and dream of more cupcakes to make.:)
