Cupcake Decorating Contest
February 9, 2011
Last Sunday, I was getting back from the library when I walked into the residence halls to catch up on some much needed sleep. As I walked past the MPR, I noticed an abnormally large group of people clustered around the tables. They all seemed very preoccupied with something and I was eager to find out what was going on. As I opened the door and stepped into the MPR, I was greeted with the comforting smell of warm cake batter and sugary frosting. Everyone was decorating cupcakes!
This cupcake decorating extravaganza was put on by RHA (The Residence Halls Association). I was super stoked to get in on the action simply because I love cupcakes. They had every kind of sprinkle and every kind of frosting color for the extravaganza. People were going crazy with it coming up with some awesome cupcake designs. There were ladybug cupcakes, Grateful Dead cupcakes, superhero cupcakes, all kinds of cupcakes. There was a great deal of awesome designs however I wasn’t so worried about the prize. Instead, I was more excited to eat my actual cupcake itself. Right after I made mine, I took a picture of it, and devoured it. After eating one cupcake, it quickly led to two. Two led to three and three led to four. Before I knew it my stomach was loaded on cake and frosting.
After rounding off my 4th cupcake, I realized that my need for sleep was quickly overpowered by the sugar high. How counter intuitive… Anyway, I took the extra burst of energy from all the sugar and photographed all the cupcakes in the contest just for you guys. Winners were chosen and prizes were given out at the end of the night.
A Big Thanks goes to RHA for buying the tons of cupcakes!
