Along the way our devious judges decided to throw in a few twists to keep our competitors on their toes.  About 5 minutes in a wrench was thrown into their carefully laid plans when everyone was now required to use sprinkles in at leastcc girl one of their cupcakes!   Panic and grumbling ensued as contestants wracked their brains on how to incorporate sprinkles into their cupcakes. The cupcake powers that be also later announced that Sixlet candies had to be used as well.


When the clock ran out all the contestants had to have a clean workstation with their cupcakes neatly presented.  Our judges then went around the room to view the cupcakes and hear the competitors short description of what they did and why.  After much deliberation pre-teen and teen winners were chosen.

This event was a blast and we hope to see everyone for the next Cupcake Wars next year!
