Cupcake Contest

Cupcake Contest
Calling bakers of every age group!! Saturday, June 19, the annual Cruisin’ Columbia car show will be held in downtown Columbia. To make this a truly “sweet” event, the Susquehanna Valley Chamber of Commerce will sponsor a Cupcake Contest to be held in conjunction with this event. We are looking for interested bakers to enter their sweet treats into the competition.

The Cupcake Contest will be held in Locust Street Park. Set up will begin at 9:30 am. The contest officially starts at 10:00 when the judging begins. Judges from The Flour Child, The Daily Grind, and Columbia Borough will sample cupcakes and rate them based on appearance and flavor. Awards will be given in a category for Bakers Sixteen and Under and a category for Bakers Over Sixteen. The winner in each category will win bragging rights and a prize package valued at $75.

Following the judging and awards ceremony, cupcakes will be sold to the public. All money collected from the sale of cupcakes will be shared by the Columbia Food Bank, the Wrightsville Food Bank, and the Maytown Food Bank.

Interested bakers need to fill out an application form and submit it along with the $10.00 entry fee to SVCC. Bakers are asked to provide a minimum of 4 dozen cupcakes and must agree to sell them for $.50 each. All money collected must be submitted to SVCC who will remit the donations to the local food banks.
