I love a good cupcake. Who doesn’t? I also love a good challenge.
If you’ve watched any programming on any of the food-related networks, you’ve seen talented people come together and be challenged for their culinary skills. It’s fun to watch and these shows are extremely popular.
As a board member for Dress for Success Greater Orlando, I’ve been an active committee participant planning for the 6th Annual Cupcake Challenge. Cupcake Challenge is a family event featuring a sweet competition between Central Florida cupcake bakeries.
This year’s bakeries include:
- Cakes and Cups
- Simply Delish Cupcakes
- Gigi's Cupcakes
- Jenn's Cakes and Other Bakes
- The Tasty Trend
- Sweet Scapes Catering
Local culinary experts select winners and the crowd selects their favorite cupcake. In addition to general admission (which brought in over 200 attendees last year) the event raises funds through raffles and a silent auction.
Here are a few fun photos from last year's event!
This year’s theme is High Stakes Cupcake!
Dress for Success Greater Orlando has provided economically disadvantaged women in Central Florida with free interview appropriate clothing as they prepare for job interviews and professional attire once they secure a job. Each year we suit more than 500 women who are referred to us from community partner organizations.
If you are in the Orlando area and would like to support Dress for Success Greater Orlando – and enjoy cupcakes – and a fun competition get your tickets here! It takes place on Sunday, September 27, starting at 2 p.m. in the Winter Park Civic Center.
I look forward to seeing you there!
