Winners & Pictures From L.A.'s Cupcake Challenge
Competitors in the 2012 L.A. Cupcake Challenge
[Update, 1:56 p.m.: The winners of the fifth annual LA Cupcake Challenge are My Delight (1st place), Cake Mamas (2nd place), Sweet Red Peach (3rd place).]
We've got no real excuse for this photo gallery except that it's Monday, and we love us some sweet food porn. Saturday afternoon, the L.A. Cupcake Challenge took over the Renaissance Hotel in Hollywood, where nearly three dozen local bakeries competed for top honors. The pictures (full photo gallery here) speak for themselves: It was a day of frosted combat, visual delights and sugar comas.
