Cupcakes can also be addicting with wordplay. My friends and I started a game where we replace the word “cupcake” in popular TV show titles. Funny titles included “How I Met Your Cupcake,” “All My Cupcakes,” “General Cupcake” and “My So-Called Cupcake,” to name a few. Speaking of TV shows, I’m a huge fan of the “The Cupcake Wars” and was stoked when vegan chef, Chloe Coscarelli won for her gingerbread nutmeg spice cupcakes. So when I first heard about a live cupcake bake-off in town, I was thrilled.
Presented by Gigi’s Cupcakes, on Sunday, August 19, 100 bakers will compete inside the ballroom at Suncoast hotel from noon to 3 p.m. The winner will be titled “Best Cupcake Baker in Las Vegas” and receive $1,500. The winning cupcake will be featured in both Gigi’s Cupcake locations in Las Vegas. Participants are eligible to win a portion of $2,500 in cash prizes.
Even if you’re not participating in the bake-off, you’ll have the chance to indulge in cupcakes and beverages. Guests 21 and older have cocktail options. The event also includes flair bartenders and speed decorating demonstrations.
Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for children 12 and younger. A portion of the proceeds go to charity. It’s a win-win situation: You’ll make your taste buds happy, all while helping a good cause. Sounds like a sweet deal.
