Kitchen Warehouse Easter Cupcake Competition

Kitchen warehouse ran a Easter Cupcake Competition last week and I'm one of the contestant. 
I was pretty nervous for a few days, thinking of the ideas, the flavours, and the whole look for my cupcakes. I think I have put too much pressure on myself and made a little wrong judgement on the cupcake hehe ops!

Anyway, here are the contestants cupcake entries! They all look amazing!

Here are some of the cute cupcakes..

This is my creation for this competition. 
A little girl wearing bunny ears and holding a bunny toy, along with a basket of easter eggs, hot cross buns and chicks on cupcakes.

I've made smore's cupcakes! Smores is an American thing which is Graham Crackers sandwiched chocolate and marshmellow. So what i did was grinding up the graham crackers and baked it into cupcakes, put the ganache in the middle and made marshmellow cream to put on top then torched it. 

The wrong choice that I made was adding a small piece of the graham cracker before topping the marshmellow cream. I didn't think that the cracker would become soft.. hence no more crunch and made the cupcake a bit dry too. :(

Yep after saying all these, that means I didn't win.. hahahaha.. but i was really close! Missing by 0.5 points to the winner. 

Here is the winner! 
Sugar spun on top! I love sugar spun.. it just add the classiness to it. 
Congrats Clarrisa!

The popular Sandy from Sandy's Cake and her daughter was the judges and they were there to demonstrates cupcakes basket. This encourages everyone to bake something and be creative! 

My cupcakes were all gone in 20 minutes and I have no refills. ops!! 

It was good fun joining this competition. Giving myself pressure to think of something different and be creative. The most important thing is "Be yourself and have your own style".  ;)
