HS Cupcake Battle

Now this sounds like fun.  How I wish there had been a culinary program at my high school.  There actually is a great program at my old alma mater, Travis High (Go Rebels :-))There is also a new program at Connally High which is headed up by an old high school buddy of mine Chef Mike Erickson.  He has put together this amazing contest complete with celebrity judges and terrific prizes for the students.  The first round is this Saturday January 29, 2011 at Connally High 13212 N Lamar Bl. from 12-2.  Chef Mike will also be at Taste of Austin pimping cupcakes.  Save me some chocolate/chocolate!

 

 

Update:  Wow!  Those were some amazing cupcakes.  Here is an update with pics of my favorites.

My name is Christy and I was born, raised, and still live in Austin, TX. I love to travel. I have been all over the US, Amsterdam, Paris, Barcelona, etc. My second favorite place in the world is Negril, Jamaica where I have been 10 times and counting. I am a trained pastry chef but I am not currently working in "the industry" right now. I became a pastry chef in part to complement the fabulous dinners conjured up by my best friends Ethan and Michelle, who hopefully will be contributing to this blog as well. We went through a 2 year period of "Tuesday Night" dinner parties which were a smorgasbord of bloody meat and red, red wine. Friendships and laughter. The men did all the cooking while the women got tipsy, as all dinner parties should be. If I wanted to participate with food, I had to bring something and I became Dessert Girl. Eventually I attended the Le Cordon Bleu program at the Texas Culinary Academy and received a certificate in Pastry and Baking. I have had several baking jobs but found it hard to make ends meet, so I earn my living elsewhere for now. I have had the pleasure of working with several celebrity chefs including Rebecca Rather, Bronwen Weber, and David Lebovitz. I have also cultivated some amazing friends and resources in the Central Texas area and would like to share my knowledge with all who care to join me. My most recent honor was winning Best Sweet at the Bacon Takedown during SXSW 2011. As the culinary icon Ms. Childs' says, "Bon Appetit!" ***CONTACT ME at christy111luv@yahoo.com or twitter @christy111luv***
