Cupcake Challenge August 5, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm


  • August 5, 2017
  • 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Contestants who think they have the best cupcake recipe can submit their cupcake to be judged by a panel of local foodies.

Three categories will be open:
• Novice: This category will be for people who do not professionally produce cupcakes (an independent cupcake maker not making cupcakes for profit).
• Professional: This category will be for a person (or entity) who produces cupcakes professionally (for profit), like a brick and mortar store or through an independent company.
• Specialty: This category will be for a person (novice or professional) who creates specialty cupcakes (vegan or gluten free).

This event will raise funds for art supplies and equipment to help CityArts continue to provide programming opportunities to underserved populations.
