Can’t say we’re not jealous – 17 cupcakes?? Of course the “5 minutes” part doesn’t sound quite as appetizing.
This past Saturday was the first annual Ivy Bakery cupcake-eating contest. The prize? $75, and a tummy ache! And you’ll never guess who won! Nancy Cummings, a Bay Ridge Bikram Yoga teacher pounded her 17th cupcake in the 5 minute limit for the win, and title of the sweatiest AND the fastest mini-cake gorger in Brooklyn! Beating out her opponent by just one cupcake, Cummings attributes her chocolate inhaling abilities to yoga, of course!
“I am disciplined and focused and I can digest them faster,” said the slender 31-year-old brunette from Bay Ridge, who dipped each little chocolate cake into a glass of water before shoving it whole into her mouth.
We’re not sure if 5 minutes is enough to digest 17 cupcakes, but surely Ms. Nancy deserves the prize, leaving the 4 loser competitors to eat her crumbs. Or barf.
