Challenging all teens ages 13-18!

It’s the third annual Cupcake Wars this summer!

What’s Cupcake Wars? It’s a chance to show off your creativity with cupcake decorating, while competing against other York County teens! Register for one of the eight qualifying rounds, come show off your creative decorating skills, and if you’re one of the top two competitors in your round, you’re in the finals! 

Competition challenges, cupcakes, and decorating materials will all be provided by libraries.

The sixteen finalists will be invited to compete in the county-wide Cupcake Wars Championship at 11:00 a.m. Sunday, July 21, 2019. They’ll be held at the Red Lion Recreation building, located close to the Kaltreider-Benfer Library.  A panel of judges will assign a series of decorating challenges.

Competitors will work against the clock and one another to complete the challenges. At the end, the Cupcake Wars Champion will be announced. Sign up today!
