It was the very first Yelp Elite Event in Edmonton last night, and the yelpers kicked off their inaugural party at Flirt Cupcakes. Elites and their guests gathered for an evening of cupcake decorating and tasting, wine drinking, and music grooving!
The night began with a sneak peek into the Flirt kitchen where all the cupcake magic happens. Yelpers got their hands on vanilla, chocolate and red velvet cakes to decorate with multiple flavours of icing and treats of their choice. As Jessica D puts it, “Last night was a whole new experience. It was sweet delicious and *gasp* butter cream!”
We washed down our sweet treats with Red Stripe Jaimaican Food from Irie Foods and some sweet Cupcake Wine. Packrat Louie added some savouriness to the evening with succulent prawns and crab cakes. Aditya R gushes, “Their crab cakes were the tastiest I've ever had!” These delicious appies definitely didn’t last long once the yelpers got a hold of them.
With raffle tickets in hand and spontaneous drum rolls at the ready, Crystal H and I had the pleasure of giving away a Cupcake hoodie from Mars and Venus, a gift set from Wild Prairie Soap Company, a bottle of Cupcake Wine, freebies from Flirt, and last but not least, Sister Grey CDs! Then the local favs took the stage to perform an acoustic set just for us!
Huge thanks to Rick and Michelle from Flirt for making the whole night happen. Make sure to check out all the delicious reviews of the evening and peruse through some snaps of the night taken by photographer extraordinaire and fellow cupcake-lover Jeff Nelson.
Until next time, SYOY!
