Wicked Cakes on Fox 7 News — Good Day Austin!!

Friday, July 31st, 2009

CLICK THIS LINK TO SEE THE SEGMENT RECORDINGS FROM FOX 7 NEWS AUSTIN: Cupcake Smackdown Pre-Party & Nicole McGarry from Wicked Cakes on Fox 7 Austin’s Good Day


I had the fabulous opportunity to participate in the Cupcake Smackdown pre-party this morning at Walton’s downtown, where we had cupcakes from L’s Cupcake Cafe, Cupprimo, Sugar Mama’s, Hill Country Cupcakes, and Walton’s. The two segments included brief chats with all the bakers (including yours truly!!) and a tasting of all the cupcakes.  I have a brief interview spot in the video that starts out with Nick holding the flowers (no cupcake eating), and my cupcake is reviewed last in the cupcake tasting video.  Check ‘em out!!

This is just a preview of the event to come tomorrow… The Cupcake Smackdown starts at 4pm (yep, 4 - my earlier post was inaccurate!) at the One-2-One Bar at 5th and Brazos!
