October to most people means the ushering in of a new season. To me though, it is the beginning of a different kind of season, Postseason Baseball. Postseason is truly amazing. This is where we get to see the best of the best in each of the leagues in Major League Baseball. We see lots of heartache and disappointment but we also get to see hope and victory. October is like no other month of baseball. The saying is "there's only ONE October" and that is certainly the way I feel.
In an effort to be more active in my cupcake shenanigans, Glenn developed Baseball Cupcakes, to which I have linked before. In our excitement for October we decided to create our own World Series, which we have aptly named Cupcake World Series 2008. So far, we have had an absolute blast brainstorming what cupcakes are best suited for each time. Keep in mind each cupcake is inspired by a team in a multitude of ways. For example, the Dodgers were represented by "Bleedin' Dodger Blueberries Cupcakes." The recipe, obviously, was inspired by the color of the Dodgers as well as a saying that describes die-hard fans who, "Bleed Dodger Blue."
Last week was the showdown between the Chicago Cubs and the Los Angeles Dodgers. Visit Baseball Cupcakes to see what went down.
