Have You Had Nightmares From A Trophy?

Have You Had Nightmares From A Trophy?

Hi, I'm Stef! Welcome to my kitchen, home to over 1000 recipes! Join me on my quest to push baking boundaries and live creatively both in and out of the kitchen.
Happy exploring!


Late at night, long after the unsuspecting cupcake baker had crawled into bed, her baking trophy jumped off of its stand and made its way to the bedroom. Sure, it was short, and his chef knife had not been sharpened, but he was mad. “Tomatoes and pinto beans are not cupcake ingredients!” he screamed out as he approached the baker.

The trophy winner thought she heard something, but assumed it was just the cupcake photographer gently breathing beside her.


She noticed nothing until the plastic knife was at her throat. She called out for mercy and the trophy responded with, “Only if you present me to someone with a better tomato recipe!” She then realized the problem – he hadn’t tasted the cupcakes.

“Once you try them, you’ll understand why they won,” she assured him.

“I hope,” she thought to herself.

She let him know that the baked bean and tomato cupcake post would be up on Cupcake Project soon. Should he try them and not like them, she would be happy to give the title to someone else.

The trophy, however, stood firm. This time, he pointed his two pronged fork (what is that supposed to be?) at her eyes.

Then, our cupcake baker pulled out her secret weapon: “Did you happen to know that you have a typo on yourself?”

It was true. She had won the prize at “Tomato Fest” and the trophy read “Tomato Feast”. The trophy turned tomato red with shame. He decided that he’d best keep his mouth shut except to try the baked bean and tomato cupcakes as soon as the recipe was posted.

The cupcake baker and the cupcake photographer went on with no need to fear the trophy sneaking into their bed at night. The baker held the trophy high and rejoiced.

    Congrats! I saw you at Tomato Fest but was too shy (not drunk enough) to introduce myself. Also wanted to mention that you should check out the Aug. 22 issue of Ladue News, page 18. They are having a cupcake contest. I am not sure you will get a misspelled trophy, but it is worth a shot!

    Awesome trophy! I’ll admit to being a bit incredulous about the tomato frosting. I guess I’d better make a batch.

    Alanna – Thanks!!

    Jessica – Next time come say hi. I’d love to meet you! Thanks for the heads up about the contest. I’ll check it out.

    Maggie – Give it a try and see what you think!
