This past Thursday the library was taken over by Teen & Pre-Teen cupcake decorators for Cupcake Wars. Kids battled it out to take home the prize is the decorating war.
Everyone needed to complete decorating 2 cupcakes
Competitors could choose 4 items from our ingredients table
Competitors could barter with their neighbors for additional ingredients
Everyone got 20 minutes total to decorate
Work stations needed to be clean by the time was called
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 least 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!
