    After viewing the pics in an unbiased frame of mind, I like the pitcher of colored ice as it looks more interesting and is quite different from the others.

    Firecracker Cupcakes, because they seem the most creative.

    In the future, I would like to start seeing more custom and unique entries, not just regular food colored red and blue.

    Hopefully Natasha and I can participate in the fun next year!
