This Saturday is the return of the ever popular Cupcake Smash, benefitting Philabundance. The 4th annual Cupcake Smash ultimate baking competition will be held in the middle of The Piazza with Jessie, Radio Host on Radio 104.5 emceeing. Judges will vote on the best cupcake for the amateur and professional categories, while attendees will vote for the “People’s Choice.”
Like last year, there are 2 sets of judges … one for the pro group and one for the amateurs. The judges are:
Toni Johnson, Production Sous Chef/Kitchen Manager at Philabundance Community Kitchen
Jennifer Reed, Blogger at One Curly Fry in a Box of the Regular & SideTour/Groupon Dessert Tours
Patricia Smith, Owner/Pastry Chef at Foam Floaterie
Davina Soondrum, Owner of Sweet Intentions
Gretchen Fantini, Owner/Pastry Chef at Sweet Box Bake Shop/Truck
Stephen Wilson, Pastry Chef at 10Arts Bistro & Lounge
Jennifer Zavala, Chef/Owner at Cherry Bomb Bus & Top Chef Season 6 Contestant
Exciting right? I’ve turned in my whisk and apron, and instead of baking my usual 150-300 mini cupcakes, I’ll be judging them. I’m super excited, but I’m also trying to figure out how I’ll make it through sampling 15+ mini cupcakes without going into sugar shock.
So, if you’d like to see me and the rest of the incredible bakers who are raising awareness about hunger in the Philadelphia area, make it out this Saturday to Cupcake Smash! You can get your tickets online, and help us smash hunger!
