Small Bites: Cupcakes vs. Cancer

Want to experience a frosting-scented ballroom stuffed to the gills with thousands of cupcakes prepared by hundreds of bakers — all in the name of fighting cancer? Here's your chance:

Cupcakes vs. Cancer, formerly Cupcakes for Cures, takes place again at The Grove Park Inn on Saturday, April 21. Though the name has changed, the goals have not. All proceeds from the event, which pits professional as well as amateur bakers against each other in a variety of categories, go to support the American Cancer Society. Prizes and titles are awarded for the best of the best in categories that include cocktail and beer-inspired, local foods and retro cupcakes.

Tickets to view — and taste — the efforts of the bakers can be reserved for a $25 suggested donation at and will also be available at the door. Registered bakers and those who reserve their tickets online can gain early entrance to the event and be among the first to see and taste this year’s cupcakes. Want to take your cupcake-tasting experience to a new level?  For a $100 donation you can judge an entire category. Take it from us — the only thing better than getting to eat a ton of cupcakes is getting to pass judgment on them, too.
