Scharffen Berger Chocolate Adventure Contest: Cupcakes!

With Chef Elizabeth Falkner last year, post sugar judging high

Cupcake lovers, fans, bakers, eaters and fanatics, this one is for you! I’m so happy to announce the launch of the Chocolate Adventure Contest from Scharffen Berger and TuttiFoodie! This year it’s all about cupcakes and I couldn’t be more thrilled. This year I’ve been asked back and it’s quite an honor to be invited back to join John Scharffenberger, Chef Elizabeth Falkner, Alice Medrich and Angie Dudley from Bakerella in judging the winning recipes. Last year was a phenomenal experience, the level of creativity in the winners and runner-ups blew my mind. It was such a wonderful opportunity and experience and I’m just giddy that I get to do it all over again!

The contest goes like this: create a cupcake using Scharffen Berger chocolate and any combination of the Adventure Ingredients, a selection of unique and interesting flavors. The winning recipe will appear in Food Network Magazine and the winner will get the chance to fly to New York York City to distribute the winning cupcake on one of the city’s Sweet Trucks. The recipe will be featured on, and and of course here on mattbites. There are fantastic second and third place prizes, too.

I’m so excited about tasting all the delicious entries and I suppose I should start practicing, right? Get all the contest details at Chocolate Adventure Contest and if you’re at BlogHer Food this weekend in San Francisco make sure to stop by Chef Elizabeth Falker’s demo where she’ll be kicking off the Chocolate Adventure Contest. I’ll be there too, make sure to say hello!
