This is your chance to show off your baking skills by entering “Miami’s Top Cupcake Challenge” at the Shops at Sunset Place, 5701 Sunset Dr. Now through Friday, Oct. 22, local residents are invited to submit recipes for their original cupcake concepts.
“As we gear up for our premier event, ‘How Sweet It Is,’ residents have an opportunity to share their delicious cupcake recipes as part of this great dessert-filled celebration,” said Claudia Marquez, director of mall marketing at the Shops at Sunset Place. “Cupcakes are so popular right now and they were an obvious choice for our dessert-themed competition at the Shops at Sunset Place.”
“Miami’s Top Cupcake Challenge” invites local residents to submit an original recipe of their favorite cupcake concept. A selection committee will review the recipe submissions and select a limited few to compete. The finalists will be asked to prepare their cupcake concept, which will then be judged live at the Shops at Sunset Place on Saturday, Nov. 13, at 2 p.m.
The panel of celebrity judges will sample the cupcakes and base the winning decision on taste, creativity and presentation during a special competition. One finalist will be selected to win a $100 Simon American Express Gift Card and have his or her photo taken to be featured as the winner of “Miami’s Top Cupcake Challenge” in SOMI magazine. The winner also will receive four complimentary tickets to attend “How Sweet It Is,” where they will be recognized as the winner of the contest.
“How Sweet It Is” is a delicious tasting celebration that will take place on Thursday, Nov. 18, at 6:30 p.m., to benefit local charities. South Florida restaurants, vendors and caterers will transform the mall into a paradise of tasty treats and gourmet delights.
