posted by The Princess Shop    |   February 9, 2017 12:04

On Tuesday, January 31st we had the pleasure of taking part in the PotashCorp Wintershines Festival for the second year in a row! We hosted the 2nd Annual Dress it Up Cupcake Contest where we had seven local bakers compete for the title of the best cupcake in Saskatoon! Each baker selected a dress from the the Princess Shop to model their cupcake after, and we had amazing entries! The Griffin Takeaway, Baby K Cupcakes & Cakes, Cakes Eh by Vernon, Half Baked: Cupcakes & Desserts, Cakes by Jasmine, Frosted Cake Design and Cakes by Britney were all in the running for the best cupcake in Saskatoon and this amazing trophy! 


The Griffin Takeaway:

The Griffin Takeaway featured gluten free chocolate cupcakes topped with caramel buttercream and a chocolate sugar cookie. They selected a beautiful purple ruffled dress that they incorporated into their caramel buttercream! 



Baby K Cupcakes & Cakes:

Baby K Cupcakes & Cakes selected a fun and whimsical pale blue and purple dress that they but a fun spin on by creating the carnival cupcake: a cotton candy cupcake with cotton candy buttercream!  




Cakes, Eh by Vernon:

Cakes , Eh by Vernon selected a beautiful pale pink dress with white pearls that they turned into perfect pink delights! They created a chocolate cupcake with a coconut pecan filling and an Italian meringue buttercream, delicious!

Cakes by Jasmine:

Cakes by Jasmine chose a yellow ballgown dress that was turned into a delicious pina colada cupcake!


Frosted Cake Design:

Frosted Cake Design created a salted toffee caramel cupcake after a gorgeous blue dress, topped with an edible dress that looked just like her selected gown! Beautiful touch and very impressive! 


Cakes by Britney:

Cakes by Britney (our contest winner from last year) created a Raspberry Rhinestone Cupcake: Raspberry filled chocolate cupcake with raspberry infused buttercream. The rhinestone topping incorporated the sparkles from the top of her selected gown, the cupcakes had their own sparkle!
