Cupcake World Series Update

I introduced the Cupcake World Series about 2 weeks ago. Essentially, all the baseball teams that are/were in the playoffs this season are represented by a cupcake that is in some way inspired by the team. A dozen of each team's cupcakes are baked and presented in a non biased way at my desk at work. The staff then chooses a cupcake for themselves at their own discretion. Each cupcake taken represents a run. The first team to 12 runs (meaning they are all out) advances to the next round.

So far the face-offs have looked like this:

Round 1: Winner - LA Dodgers

Chicago Cub 100 Year Twinkie Cupcakes vs. Bleedin' Dodger Blueberries Cupcakes

Round 2: Winner - Philadelphia Phillies

Philadelphia Cream Cheese Cupcakes vs. Milwaukee German Chocolate Cupcakes

Round 3: Winner- LA Angels

Los Angeles Angel Food Cupcakes vs. Boston Baked Bean Cupcakes

Round 4: Winner - Chicago White Sox

Tropicana Orange Cream Cupcakes vs. White Chocolate Sox Cupcakes

We're on Fall Break now, since we work at a school, so the series will resume next week. In the meantime, check out the links to the recipes and read up on the color commentary done by my husband. It's apparent how much he enjoys doing this.
