Best Cupcake in Saskatoon goes to...

posted by The Princess Shop    |   January 28, 2016 09:43

When we were first contacted about being a part of Wintershines in 2016 we were as excited as we were overwhelmed with ideas. As a Saskatoon non-profit, we take any opportunities we can to be involved in the community. We knew that being part of Potashcorp's Wintershines was the perfect opportunity to spread information about our program, while giving the community a place to gather, and to share some sweet treats on a cold winter day. 

After learning that there weren't any other cupcake competitions locally, we knew that we had a great opportunity to bring the community together to name BEST CUPCAKE in SASKATOON! We got to work reaching out to local cake masters and bakeries, and were so grateful for the reception we had! Our event was as huge success, and we owe that to each of our local contestants. Without further ado, a huge thank you to The Park Town Hotel, Cakes by Britney, Griffin Takeaway, Baby K Cupcakes and Cakes, The Cupcake Conspiracy, and our very own Princess Shop entry. 

Each of our bakers and bakeries chose a gown from the Princess Shop to model their cupcake design after. The results were OUTSTANDING!

The Park Town Hotel's delicious vanilla cupcakes were served upside down, a design inspired by their gorgeous mermaid style grad dress. It was topped with orange creamsicle icing, and handmade black licorice pearls that perfectly emulated the taste of tiger tiger icecream.



Griffin Takeaway had the most articulate icing design. They designed a chocolatey rose on top of each cupcake that went perfectly with their stunning dark red and rose coloured gown.

Baby K Cupcakes and Cakes created a perfect swirl of vanilla and strawberry. From the most moist cupcake to the swirled icing, strawberry shortcake herself would be jealous of this one! 

The Cupcake Conspiracy absolutely nailed their take on a classic chocolate cupcake, and upped the anti from there with the most outstanding colour combination of the evening. Buttercream in flavour, but multicoloured rainbows and sparkles in appearance. It was as tantilizing to the eyes as it was to the tastebuds.



Our very own Princess Shop baker who also doubles as our Live Auction Coordinator, Miss Whitney, lead our team in the design of a beautiful and tasty raspberry rose cupcake.  

And last but certainly not least, our 'Dress It Up Cupcake Contest' WINNER is the lovely Cakes by Britney! Britney put a new spin on an old favourite. This delicious carrot cake was also infused with coconut and pineapple, topped with signature ice blue buttercream frosting and crowned with silver sparkles and jewels. It was as tasty as it was beautiful! CONGRATULATIONS BRITNEY AND TEAM!

 

Other thank yous to the businesses who donated door prizes: The Industrial Kitchen & BarKR Jewelry, Joy Tesch Stylist at Visions Salon & Spa !

A special thank you to Kevin Stanfield of Global Saskatoon for emceeing the event and announcing our winner!

To Mandy Pravda , Kim Ali, and Jeff Culbert for putting on such a fantastic winter festival and bringing the community together! Thank you to PotashCorp for funding an important community event: Wintershines!

To each of our The Princess Shop volunteers who helped bake, organize, setup and takedown the event.

And lastly, but surely not least, to each of YOU in the community who came to sample, vote, and enjoy an evening of sweets for such a great cause. You are helping us bring graduation, scholarship, and mentorship experiences to more Saskatchewan women than ever before. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! All of !the proceeds from the event were given back to the Princess Shop!

Our next major event is our 9th Annual Glass Slipper Benefit on April 7, 2016. Join us for an evening of good fun, good food, and giving back to the community. We'd love to see you there!

All love,

The Princess Shop Team
