The event was sponsored by Sweet Themez bakery, CityLifeDeals.com, and WashingtonEats.com. With a venue in mind and the date set, over seventy-five people poured into the Blue Banana Sports Bar (3632 Georgia Avenue) and partook in libations like: The Cupcake Critic (a cherry cran vodka with peach soda and grenadine), Black Forest cupcake (whiskey, ginger ale, blackberry soda and lime) and the Pineapple Upside down cake (Malibu rum and pineapple juice with pineapple chunks). My sister and assistant, Shelby, played hostess as she greeted guests and handed out gift bags.

The cupcakes were flowing as guest noshed on mini vegan red velvet, chocolate chip, grandma's pound cake with raspberry cream and a coconut caramel cupcake all provided by Sweet Themez bakery. Gift bag recipients enjoyed an extra treat as goodie bags contained a red velvet cake pop also from Sweet Themez bakery.

I took a moment to acknowledge some folks who have been instrumental with the blog. There were so many people to thank but I especially wanted to thank Nisi Bennett of Forever A Pear who would be hosting the Cupcake Challenge for a Cure that Saturday whereby I would be a judge. I was able to present Mrs. Bennett with a pink bracelet specially made for October, being breast cancer awareness month, courtesy of Shannon Burgwald of Stella & Dot.
