Nine competing bakeries, 27 cupcake flavors, a panel of judges and a load of hungry audiences to satisfy… We had a blast at this year’s Cupcake-A-Doodle-Do! Theatre Action Project would like to thank everyone who participated in the event and making this fall fundraiser a success.
It was an afternoon full of fun and laughter. Apart from the cupcake cook-off, there was a musical appearance from the Biscuit Brothers, an engaging storytelling session from Carl Anderson and several art and craft stations set up in the open fields of Central Market. Many of our young participants had their creative juices flowing by creating unique crafts, such as making hats out of paper bags, designing their own aprons and sculpting cupcakes with play dough.
People’s Choice: The Great Pumpkin, Bellissimo
Craziest: Pumpkin Tres Leches, The Cupcake Bar
Best Decorated: S’more, Central Market Bakery
Healthiest: Pumpkin, 1886 Cafe and Bakery
Overall Winner: Pre-Pear for Fall, Jeffrey’s Restaurant and Bar
The highlight of the event was definitely the cupcake tasting and all twenty-seven cupcake flavors were absolutely delightful! After a difficult deliberation process, the judges and audience crowned Jeffrey’s of Austin the overall winner with their unique creation of the “Pre-Pear for Fall” cupcake.
Thank you to all our judges, sponsors, volunteers, and attendees. The sugar rush left everyone craving for more and we can’t wait for next year’s event. In the meantime, check out Theater Action Project’s homepage to stay updated on upcoming events.
