South Austin foodie favorite, Sugar Mama’s Bakeshop, just celebrated their 2nd birthday with another huge backyard party! My how time flies – it feels like just a few months back we celebrated their 1st birthday party in style with a crazy pie eating contest!
Even though there was no pie eating contest this year, we had something even better… CUPCAKE CANNON! That’s right… there was the shooting of pastry product out of a large bazooka-like contraption for prizes.

Many party goers including yours truly, TastingBud’s own @supertsai, gave the cupcake cannon a shot (pun-intended) in the name of charity benefiting Austin Pets Alive! By some minor miracle I hit the bulls eye and won a gift card to local business The Soup Peddler – I’m looking forward to trying their pumpkin soup next week!
Apart from the blasting of baked goods at targets, there were free samples to be had from non dairy ice cream company NadaMoo! and libations were provided by the generous Tito’s Handmade Vodka. As if that wasn’t enough entertainment, there was great live music by Lincoln Durham and hundreds from around the community showed up to celebrate!
All told, it was a great party as usual and the TastingBuds would like to wish Olivia and Sugar Mama’s Bakeshop a happy birthday! Here’s to many, many more!
