I received an email from one of my readers about a cupcake event at Sticky Fingers in DC. In case you haven't heard of them, they are one of the top vegan bakeries around here :) Even though I'm not vegan, I'm a big fan of their brownies which don't even taste vegan to me. Oh and guess what they ship! But I'm lucky enough that even though I don't quite live in the city, they sell them at a local whole foods/organic store near me! Jealous?! haha... Okay well back to what I wanted to tell you. Sticky Fingers along with Scharffen Berger Chocolate and TuttiFoodie is having a cupcake happy hour to kick off the Chocolate Adventure Contest 2010. Here's more info from the email:
I'm helping my aunt, founder of www.tuttifoodie.com (kind of like Daily Candy for foodie types, maybe you've seen it!), promote the Chocolate Adventure Contest here in the DC area. We're holding a launch party (a cupcake happy hour!) at Sticky Fingers Bakery in Columbia Heights on Wed, October 6th from 5-8. The first 100 guests will enjoy a complimentary Chocolate Adventure cupcake made by Sticky Fingers - which means it will be fabulous and vegan and include one awesome contest ingredient - stout! I'm kind of excited to try it :)
The Contest: We’d be grateful if you could tell your readers about it. They can make their own tricked-out cupcake in the privacy of their own kitchen between October 1 and January 1. Grand prize is $10,000 and a feature in Food Network magazine. And the winner gets to ride around on a cupcake truck in NYC that’ll be handing out the grand prize winning cupcake.
Thanks for the info Meg! Unfortunately I will not be able to attend - grad school just gets in the way of all the fun things :( Hopefully one of you all will be able to attend though!! (Did I read FREE cupcake?! and it has beer in it?!) Enjoy!!
ps - Even though I can't make it to the launch party, I'm definitely thinking about entering this contest!!
