Sunday the 24th of January was the fourth event as part of the Belfast Mouthing Off Series which sees Belfast businesses go head to head in an epic battle and Yelpers get to put on their judging hats and decide who’s best. The Cupcake-Off saw 6 Belfast bakers and bakeries go head to head at East Belfast hot spot The Stokers Halt. Forty Yelpers were chosen as judges and they each got to sample sublime cupcakes of all varieties from the 6 Belfast businesses.
There were cupcakes all of shapes, sizes and flavours, sticky, creamy cupcakes and cupcakes with fruit on top, you name it we had it! Despite the fact there could only be one winner every single competitor claimed a piece of the judges hearts and the winning cupcake wasn’t a heavily decorated or topped with extras, the Yelp judges voted for a simple red velvet cupcake from J-Bird Bakery after an epic two hour sample session. It was an extremely tight contest with only a few votes between the other 5 competitors; The Lily Pink Bakery, French Village, Treat Boutique, Lavender Cupcakes and Belfast Bakery Company.
This really was an epic showdown with all the Belfast bakeries taking part showcasing what our wee city has to offer in terms of cakes!
