For those who haven’t been stalking the judges’ blogs to see who they voted for in the 2011 Ice Cream Cupcake Contest, here are the links to to the posts with their votes: Baking Bites, Bakers Royale, and Cakespy.
As a testament to how incredible our entries were this year (check them all out if you haven’t yet), there was no entry that was unanimously selected by all three judges. However, you’ll notice that the S’mores Cupcake Ice Cream Sandwiches by Stephanie of 52 Kitchen Adventures as well as the Honey Hazelnut Cupcake with Gianduja Gelato by Vivian of Vivian Macaron each received votes from Nicole (Baking Bites) and Naomi (Bakers Royale) – making them the strongest contenders. Since Jessie (Cakespy) didn’t choose either of them, we decided that she should have the tie-breaking vote to determine the contest winner.
Jessie will be announcing her tie-breaking vote for the grand prize 2011 Ice Cream Cupcake Contest winner tomorrow on Cakespy! I’ll update this post when she does (or if you are Stephanie or Vivian, you can check her blog nonstop with bated breath). Good luck to Stephanie and Vivian and thanks again to our judges and everyone who participated.
Let’s take one more quick look at what either Stephanie or Vivian will have on their bookshelf in the near future:
