The Golden Foodie Awards has unveiled the “Golden Velvet Cupcake” as the official cupcake of the 2012 event season. The Golden Velvet Cupcake was created by Casey’s Cupcakes and introduces a unique and elegant twist on the classic red velvet cupcake.
The Golden Velvet Cupcake recipe features a moist red velvet cake with light and creamy frosting adorned with a special 24-carat gold dust, glamorous gold glitter and gold covered candy pearls. The cupcake will be available at all Casey’s Cupcakes locations through Sept. 30.
Casey Reinhardt founded Casey’s Cupcakes with inspiration from her great-grandmother’s homemade cupcakes that she has enjoyed since childhood. The décor for each store is inspired by a classic Parisian café with a glamorous Hollywood twist. Since opening the first location in 2009, Casey’s Cupcakes has been recognized by major media sources including the 2011 winner of Food Network’s Cupcake Wars “Walk of Fame.” Reinhardt was delighted that Casey’s Cupcakes was selected to develop the Golden Velvet Cupcake in celebration of the Golden Foodie Awards.
“It is such a great honor that The OC (Orange County, Calif.) Restaurant Association and Golden Foodie Awards selected Casey’s Cupcakes to be the official cupcake provider of the Goldie Foodie Awards season. We are so excited to debut our glamorous and delicious Golden Velvet Cupcake for this special occasion,” said Reinhardt.
The Golden Velvet cupcake will be available at all Casey’s Cupcakes locations in Fashion Island Newport Beach, Laguna Beach, Irvine’s Woodbury Town Center and The Historic Mission Inn Hotel & Spa in Riverside. Each Golden Velvet Cupcake is $4.50 or $24 for a box of six when the special discount code “24-Carat” is mentioned. Special orders consisting of six or more Golden Velvet Cupcakes may be placed by calling the Casey’s Cupcakes nearest you or by visiting www.caseyscupcake.com.
