You may know I was judging a cupcake competition for rangecookers.co.uk. The competition called for the finest cupcakes known to man.

We poured over all the entries and back through them again. We narrowed it down to a top 3 each and then we discussed why we selected each of our three. The winner was easy, as it was a favourite with all of us.
The winner is Lucy over at Supergolden Bakes who made Raspberry Lemon Swirl Cupcakes.
The staff at rangecookers particularly liked Stuart at Cakeyboi's Salted Fluffer Cupcake Cones and he was in my top 3 too.
I think that is an important test with any cupcake. does it make you drool?
We would like to pass on a highly commended to a few other cupcakes that really stood out. We don't have a prize to pass along to these blogs, but we thought we would share the love.

Neapolitan '99' Ice-Cream Cupcakes
These beauties also made me drool. They were thought up by Kate over at What me and the boys say.
Kate announced she was making cupcakes. her husband wanted vanilla, one of her boys wanted chocolate and the other wanted strawberry, so to be the peacekeeper, she made all three swirled into one cupcake, then topped with whippy style buttercream, strawberry sauce and a flake.
The cupcakes were marvellous in themselves, but I just loved all the photos of her family getting involved in the cupcake making and eating. They look like one fun family!

Amiee made us Rainbow Marshmallow Cupcakes. They look pretty good don't they? Any child would be super-excited by these little fairytale cakes, but wait, just wait!
Peel back the wrapper and the cupcake is all the colours of the rainbow. They are amazing!!!
Marshmallow frosting. Mmmmmmm!
While I was over there I got distracted by some Lego Biscuits that I have to make for Cooper!

Vanilla cupcakes with a hint of peanut butter. Drippy jam ooozing out of the centre of each cake and peanut butter icing.
Oh how I love a cupcake with an oozing, soft centre. it really elevates them to something special.

These beauties were dreamed up by Angela over at My Golden Pear.
A wedding organised in a rush. In a day in fact. And these were the wedding cupcakes.
A wedding organised in a day! I hear you exclaim.
It was actually the wedding of two stuffed bears that belong to Angela's son.
What a mum, to create these for her little ones imaginary game. She deserves a prize just for being a great mum!
Moist chocolate cupcakes in edible chocolate cupcake cases, decorated with cream and raspberries.
