Holy crap, is it August already?!? 0_0

And for the conclusion of Cupcake Crusade 2012, here are the best of the rest!

Most Photogenic goes to Jilly's Cupcakery in Alpharetta, GA.  That pic is a feast for the eyes, no?

Best Box is a two-way tie between Hello Cupcake in D.C. and Gigi's Cupcakes.

Biggest Disaster also goes to Hello Cupcake (which was totally my fault not theirs.)  Note to self: Do NOT ride circulator bus or crowded Metro with sweet treats.  Those poor, poor cupcakes...

Best Service goes to the staff (or owner rather) of CakeDreams in Maryland and to Gigi's in Raleigh, North Carolina.  The girl who served us at Gigi's actually reminded me of the main character of one of my books :D

Most Thoughtful goes to Ninja Aunt C who brought us Curbside Cupcakes and even joined me and Ninja Aunt P at a few stops on our Crusade.  She rocks!!

That completes Cupcake Crusade 2012!  Hope everyone has a great week with great eats and good company.  And when in need of a little pick-me-up: Keep calm and have a cupcake :-)

  1. I'm thinking a second round of cupcake crusade may be necessary...yumyumyum!

  2. I adore cupcakes! Whoever invented them is a genius. All those little cakes look so beautiful. Shame about the cupcake disaster :( Although I bet they still tasted amazing!

  3. I am still so jealous of this endeavor. It sounds wonderful, and it looks like you guys made out pretty well!
