On Monday, the Brooklyn Kitchen held its second annual Cupcake Cookoff at Union Pool in Williamsburg. With the irresistible bait of free homemade cupcakes, the place was packed with competing bakers, their supporters, and cupcake freeloaders (like me). The crowd favorite was probably by no coincidence the cupcake that paired best with beer—the very excellent Rogue Porter Chocolate Cake with Salted-Caramel Icing. Money was raised, cupcakes were judged, photos were taken, and various prizes were given out. Luckily, cupcake obsessed bloggers were out in full effect, making my job much easier. Here are some good links for those of you who can't get enough cupcakes.
