Form a team of 5 people or fewer.
Using a variety of topping and frosting options, decorate cupcakes to relate them to a book or story. (Book/story inspiration will be provided, but teams/individuals are encouraged to bring ideas of their own).
All materials for this event will be provided by the library including 3 flavors of prebaked cupcakes (chocolate, vanilla, and red velvet), various colors of frosting, and several possible cupcake toppings. Teams must choose 3 toppings for their cupcakes plus frosting to relate their cupcakes to a story. The teams will work on their cupcake creations at the event, not prior to it.
Each team must explain what story inspired their cupcakes and why they chose their toppings to express their chosen story. A panel of judges will then decide winners based on flavor, creativity, and how well each team's cupcakes relate to their chosen book/story.
