Derby Day! Mint Julep...Cupcake?

Pin It


Every May I look forward to 3 events: My birthday, the Indianapolis 500 and the Kentucky Derby. The Derby and my birthday are sometimes on the same day, but not this year.


138th Running of the
Kentucky Derby


The Mint Julep is must have at the Kentucky Derby


So, I'm looking for a good one in Southern California

Found One!


Mint Julep
A bourbon mint cake with Kentucky bourbon
and creme de menthe frosting

Now this is a Mint Julep!
Great mint flavor in the frosting
with a bourbon kick in the cake...


No, I'm not at Churchill Downs,
I'm in Glendale!


At Goodie Girls
The Winner of Season 3 "Kentucky Derby" Cupcake Wars

I wanted to try the
Winning Derby cupcakes
and here they are...



Short Stack
"The Famous Blueberry Pancake Cupcake"
A Buttermilk cake and fresh blueberry filling
with a maple french butter cream frosting

This was my favorite one
Great pancake flavor and
Real blueberries too.



Peaches n' Cream
Buttermilk cake with fresh peach filling
and a marshmallow vanilla frosting

Very Southern



Bubbly
Signature chocolate cake with a strawberry filling
and a winning champagne frosting

This is how you celebrate a Victory!


You might be saying a cupcake is a cupcake, right?

But not many have a real fruit filling
