The Recipe Olympics – 2012

The Cupcake Theory is celebrating its first birthday, so it seems fitting that we highlight and honor the great recipes of the past year in what I call “The Recipe Olympics”. My favorite recipes from the year will be awarded gold, silver, and bronze in a variety of categories. And definitely a Miss Congeniality Award. Oh wait, that’s beauty pageants. Haha! (I was awarded The Smile Award at a beauty pageant. It’s not the same thing as winning. Believe me. I know. LOL!) Here are your finalists (cue the music, flowers, and tears):
