Portland cupcakes meet up at St Cupcake

Today was the Cupcakes Take The Cake meet up at St. Cupcake in Portland Oregon
I had a friend of mine see this upcoming event on their calendar and I wanted to attend and meet Rachel Kramer Bussel, the woman from that blog that had posted about my Valentine's cupcakes earlier in the week. Not only was she super nice but I also met a group of local bakers, cupcake shop owners and other women in the cupcake business. One woman's business is the fancy cupcake wrappers cupcakes are set into after baking.
Here is Rachel and myself posing in the bright sun ( I apologize for my lack of tan - don't stare directly at my arm it might blind you!) with a tiny cupcake. I am also over 5 months pregnant in this pic!
You can see my crazy daughter's reflection in the background
It was really nice to have met her and thanked her in person for posting my cupcakes on her blog. She was super nice and I am really glad I came to the event

And since we were at St. Cupcake we had to sample the goods
We bought a sample of minis or "dots" as the shop called them
We tried peanut butter and ganache frosted, chocolate cupcake with fudge, chocolate cupcake with cream cheese, chocolate with chocolate buttercream, vanilla with chocolate buttercream, carrot cake, coconut cream and chocolate with vanilla buttercream
Hands down our favorites were the coconut cream and the chocolate with vanilla. Soo yummy
And what a gorgeous day to be sitting outside making new friends in the baking world trying new yummy cupcakes!!
