The Fantasy Cupcake Challenge is the sweetest way to give back

13 September 2012

INDIO, California -- (PRESS RFELEASE) -- Whether you like the icing pink or blue or prefer the taste sweet or savory, there’s probably a perfect one for you! We’re talking CUPCAKES and Fantasy Springs Resort Casino is using the tasty little treats as a way to give back to a charity.

On Sunday, November 18, the resort will play host to the Fantasy Cupcake Challenge, a decadent baking competition of sorts with all the proceeds going to Well in the Desert, a nonprofit organization that provides meals to those in need.

The Fantasy Cupcake Challenge includes 12 professional chefs and bakers from top local restaurants as well as a group of folks who just like to bake for fun. Each participant can create either a savory or sweet cupcake, and then the mouthwatering morsels will be judged and cash prizes handed out.

The most delicious part, from 1pm-4pm, the Fantasy Cupcake Challenge is open to the public. Everyone will be able to browse the aisles of cupcakes and tantalize their taste buds with cupcake samples from ALL the participating bakers. The event also includes boutique vendors selling handmade items and unique gifts, baking demonstrations, a silent auction and live music. Also included with the ticket: complimentary tastings of wine, champagne and international coffee.

Admission to the Fantasy Cupcake Challenge is $30 for adults and $15 for children. If you bring three canned/nonperishable goods to the box office the day of the event, you will receive $5 off admission. We are accepting entries for the amateur category online.
