Hi everyone! I had the very good fortune to provide the celebratory cupcakes for Kaci & Roy’s wedding in September… I have to say that they are truly two of my very favorite clients. To meet them is to love them. For their wedding, Kaci and Roy were extremely creative and they worked to have a ceremony (at the Cathedral of Junk) and reception (at Hill’s Cafe) that was warm, welcoming, and whimsical - a perfect fit for the couple. Kaci was kind enough to share some pictures of the evening with me, and I’ve included them here for you to check out. Jon Bolden took the lovely photographs - all the credits for this post go to him!
Here’s what the lovely Kaci had to say about the wedding cupcakes (one of my all-time favorite compliments!):
Seriously, these are hands down the best g-damn cupcakes, with the best cake and frosting I’ve ever had in my whole life. I thought I didn’t really like cake all that much until I had these - rich, moist, with light and flavorful frosting. Highly recommended!!!
Kaci and Roy - I’m so, so pleased to have been a part of your big day! All the best!
Yum! I’m adding a new cupcake flavor to the Wicked Cakes menu… Snickerdoodle! A long-time fan of the snickerdoodle, I’m so excited to add this to the official menu. The cupcake is a cinnamon-laced vanilla with Swiss meringue vanilla buttercream, topped with a sprinkling of cinnamon-sugar. Hope you all like it!
Thank you to everyone who stopped by and sampled cupcakes from Wicked Cakes at the Cupcake Smackdown last weekend… it was a true pleasure meeting everyone! We’ve had some great responses over the last week in the blogosphere… here are a few of the wonderful notes we’ve seen!
Upstairs on the rooftop was where are the goodies were and where I ran into Peter Tsai, food blogger, photographer, and engineer (For serious!) who was also a judge at this event. I asked him what cupcake he recommended. He pointed at the yellow cupcake from Wicked Cakes, a cupcake and cake catering company. He likened them to HEB cupcakes which prompted me add HEB cupcakes to my next HEB grocery list. I picked the chocolate with peanut butter cream icing. I don’t usually enjoy icing as most are just too starchy, thick, and too sweet for me but the peanut butter cream was light, fluffy, and HEAVENLY. I gobbled the whole thing up icing and all. It’s too bad they don’t have a storefront I can just buy a couple of cupcakes as I wish. But definitely, if you’re having an event and want cupcakes catered, call Wicked and then invite me over.
New Media Lab
The New Media Lab did a great article on how the event was promoted via Social Media/Networking, making it a huge success. Wicked Cake’s cupcakes are featured in the photo reel at the top. Enjoy!

Foodie is the New Forty was kind enough to include a sweet pic and comment about our chocolate cupcake with coconut cream cheese frosting and little yellow sugar daisy!
Here are some additional places where Wicked Cakes showed up in some gorgeous photos… thanks, everyone!
What a fantastic and wonderfully crazy day! The first ever Cupcake Smackdown was this past Saturday here in Austin, TX at the One-2-One bar downtown. Jennie Chen, from MisoHungryNow.com, organized a fantastic day for cupcake and dog-lovers alike. With more than 1000 attendees reported, more than 700 cupcakes, and loads of pups, the Smackdown was full of cupcake-loving energy.
Wicked Cakes had the great opportunity to sell a variety of Wicked Cupcakes benefiting the Food & Wine Foundation of Texas. We had an absolute blast interacting with the crowd, selling delicious treats and hanging with new friends from Cupprimo, L’s Cupcake Cafe, The Cupcake Bar, Walton’s Fancy & Staple, and Hill Country Cupcakes.
Thanks so much for everyone’s kind words and support this week leading up to the Cupcake Smackdown 1.0! It was a great experience all around, and the event yesterday was a huge hit! I have more info & pics coming, but here is a teaser pic of the cupcakes that were shown on-air on Friday morning on Fox 7’s Good Day Austin. Enjoy!
If you’ve got some time this Saturday afternoon, come out to the One-2-One Bar in Austin from 4-7pm to check out the first ever Cupcake Smackdown. With a blind tasting competition of all the local cupcake shops, cupcake eating contests, and support for local charities, it promises to be a great event!
Wicked Cakes is sponsoring and competing in the event… if you have some time to come out and show your support (and east some yummy cupcakes!), we would love to see you out there!
Check out this link for all the details, and feel free to contact me directly with questions… Thanks so much!
Cupcake Smackdown 1.0, hosted by Austin food blog MisoHungryNow.com
My boyfriend and I are hosting a little shindig at hour house this evening… clearly an event that requires cupcakes. I wanted to try some new recipes, so I ended up with three different types of cupcakes, and way more of them than could possibly be eaten by our small group of friends.
Cupcake #1 is a traditional southern red velvet, topped with a creamy coconut cream cheese frosting.
Cupcake #2 is a rustic carrot cake with big slices of carrot and chopped walnut, topped in cream cheese frosting.
Cupcake #3 was an experiment that I’m pretty excited about… I had some un-iced vanilla cupcakes lying around, and I decided to make a tart raspberry buttercream to go on top - yum!
