Over 100 Denver Yelp Elites and their guests were treated super sweetly by Yours Truly Cupcake and Flipp Films last week at the Yelping In Candyland event! The event included a "decorate your own cupcake" station, a "create your own ice cream sundae" stop, and a full on candy bar courtesy of Fleur Decor (Fleur also provided the beautiful floral decorations set around the two venues), along with several cupcake and cocktail pairings.
Speaking of the pairings – not much was sweeter throughout the night! Peach Street Distillery created the "New Fashioned" (Peach Street Distillery Peach Brandy, bitters, sugar) to pair with a peach cupcake with goat cheese and cream cheese frosting and a sprig of basil. Breckenridge Distillery handmade the "Fall into Bourbon" (Breckenridge Bourbon, cider, homemade syrup: apple, nutmeg, anise, peppercorn, cinnamon, and brown sugar) to pair with an apple cupcake topped with bourbon cream cheese frosting and a dusting of cloves. The Whipped Cream Cocktail (whipped cream vodka, pineapple juice and a splash of soda) was a delicious accompaniement to a pineapple right-side-up cupcake with whipped vodka buttercream frosting. And the Crispin Cider took it's partner, a gingerbread cupcake with cider buttercream frosting and crystalized giner to a whole new level!
Yelpers also joined in a Candyland scavenger hunt of sorts with the winners walking away with a "bucket of sugar" – a Halloween pail full of candy, cupcakes, and a Yelp t-shirt. Plus there was even a gingerbread (wo)man on hand for photo ops. Talk about a sugar high! Be sure to check out the photos and the reviews and until next time, SYOY (See You On Yelp)!
