Four-hundred-and-ninety-one, yup, 4-9-1, that's how many cupcakes were present and last week's Girl's Night Out CupcakeO'Rama! Over 30 women brought a variety of cupcakes, some baked, some bought, all contributing to a night full of sugary fun that involved raffle items, guessing games and take-home sample boxes for when you just couldn't eat another bite!
The idea of CupcakeO'Rama is simple enough. Invite your friends, tell them to invite their friends, and make sure everyone brings their favorite cupcake flavor for the rest of the crowd to experience. Set the cupcakes up around the room, each with a nameplate so there are no surprises, and begin to taste the rainbow of chocolately, fruity fun. You can vote on your favorites and award the winners with different cupcake certificates: Most Original Recipe, Best Dressed Cupcake, Worst Cupcake Recipe, etc.
Our Yumologists brought their famous Strawberry Lemonade cupcakes to the party, and we were happy to see there were very little left at the end of the night. Other winning recipes included: French Toast Cupcakes, Cookies N' Cream Cupcakes (complete with Oreo cookie on the bottom!) and Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Cupcakes = YUM!
Of course a Girl's Night Out is not complete without a bit of the bubbly to wash it all down. We recommend a dessert wine such as a Reisling, or bottles of champagne to keep the atmosphere fun and flirty.
Throw your own CupcakeO'Rama and watch the fun unfold!
