Before the playoffs, the National Hockey League sent out a giant Stanley Cup-shaped coffin of cupcakes to the media, having partnered with Crumbs Bake Shop this season.
We received one, and frankly didn’t know what to do with it. So we did the only logical thing: Freeze the little buggers, and thaw them whenever one of the playoff teams was eliminated so we could devour them in delicious tribute.
And to capture the entire thing on film, of course. If you follow the Puck Daddy Facebook page, you’ve seen 15 little pastries eaten during the playoffs, with varying degrees of whimsy.
With the Chicago Blackhawks crowned as champs, our Stanley Cupcake Devouring series comes to a dramatic end. Coming up: The full 16-cupcake annihilation including the debut of the Blackhawks’ cupcake devouring.
And here … we … go.
Montreal Canadiens and Minnesota Wild
St. Louis Blues
New York Islanders
Toronto Maple Leafs
New York Rangers
Detroit Red Wings
San Jose Sharks
Los Angeles Kings
And finally, the Chicago Blackhawks!
Awesome work by Brandon Bollig of the Blackhawks to finish off the cupcake series. Puck Daddy readers can get a video like this one from an athlete on Thuzio for $99. They’re great for birthdays or for Fantasy Hockey champions to gloat to the rest of the league. Check it out here.
Thanks to NHL for the cupcakes, girlfriend for technical assistance, iMovie for all of its editorial glories and the Puck Daddy readers for not vomiting during closeup views of me eating desserts.
