Leave it to the Austin Food Blogger Alliance to host an event that has us salivating based on title alone. On July 25, Cupcakes and Cocktails will take over The Carillion with a confectionary showdown benefiting local non-profit Bake a Wish.
Five local bakeries will present their cocktail-inspired pastry creations for guests to taste and vote their favorites. Challengers for the evening are Amity Bakery, Sugar N’ Spice Patisserie, Objects of Confection, Sugar Mama’s Bakeshop, and Envy Pastries. Chef Josh Watkins of The Carillion has small bites planned amid the sweet stations for a savory addition to the evening.
Tickets to the event are a mere $35 and go toward a great cause. The honorary beneficiary – Bake a Wish – provides free birthday cakes and baked goods to children in foster homes and shelters, the elderly, the disabled, and other underserved communities in and around Austin.
Tickets are still on sale.
