We Go Wednesday - Trophy Cupcakes/Cupcakes Take The Cake Meet Up

Trophy Cupcakes Cupcakes Take The Cake Jennifer Rachel

Whenever there is an event at  Trophy Cupcakes, I'm there.  Even better, Rachel from the world-famous Cupcakes Take The Cake was coming.  Oh yes, I was there. Be warned, you may want to put on your eatin' pants...this post will add 5 pounds..

Nothing says sweet awesomeness like watching owner Jennifer Shea toasting marshmallow topping with a mini blow torch...

We sampled lots of mini yumminess and their newest flavor, Chocolate Hazelnut. Mmmm.....and specially made just for us, mini Hi Hat cupcakes! More on them a little later.

So, I may have eaten too many...but they are so small, you don't realize you've eaten six of them.  I did take some home to share with the menfolk, so yes, I managed to stop long enough to think about them.

So the highlight of the day was watching Jennifer dip meringue-topped cupcakes into luscious chocolate ganache.

OK, here we go...

Oh yes...

They are a bit time consuming which is why they are only offered seasonally, and don't come in minis, so if you live here, I suggest you high-tail out to grab a few before they go back into the Disney vault...wait, that's movies...

If you are an adventuresome sort, Bakerella has a fabulous post on making them with a link to Martha's meringue recipe. Aren't they so pretty?


And guess who won the raffle drawing? Why yes, I did! A gift card for a dozen cupcakes, paper straws, pinwheel toppers? Yes, please!
