I had the baking contest I mentioned a few times on Saturday, and I won two of the three categories that I entered. My cupcakes and my cheesecake won first place in cupcakes and favorite dessert respectively. So pretty!

I ended up going with frosting instead of a ganache. I’d like to say it was a carefully considered decision, but really, I just didn’t start baking until 9PM, and making ganache would have required a trip to a further away grocery store, which I just wasn’t up for.

My cookies didn’t win anything though :-/. I’m still happy with my results though! And I think my cookies are delicious.
