Vancouver’s First Cupcake Challenge

What better way to celebrate Father’s Day than eating cupcakes? I’m sure that’s what Mijune Pak and Nicole Marie were thinking when they organized Vancouver’s first cupcake challenge. The object was simple. Invites the best cupcake makers in the city and pit them head to head against each other to see who’s the best.

The free event was held at the Roundhouse Community Centre in Yaletown. There were three awards up for grabs. The people’s choices award, the food bloggers’ choice award and the judges’ choice award. The people’s choice and judges’ choice award were won by Frosting Cupcakery. The bloggers’ choice award went to Big City Cupcakes.

Vancouver’s First Cupcake Challenge attracted over 1,000 people, which was pretty amazing when you consider the only promotion the event had came from blog posts, Twitter and Facebook. That just goes to show the power of social media.
