It was a hard-fought battle Monday night, but everyone was a winner at the latest installment of Iron Cupcake, hosted each month by Leland Tea. The theme for this edition was "Spice," and the 22 contestants used everything from Mexican chocolate to pumpkin curry, poached pears to red peppercorns, ginger to five-spice seasoning, even avocado buttercream. Lots more pictures of the gluttony are here. Next month's theme: Nuts. It's a glorious mob scene, so sign up now if you want to be a competing baker or just an eager taster.
