Cupcake Wars for Charity

Sprinkles Cupcakes will host the first ever Big D’s "Big News" Cupcake Wars on Saturday, January 21, at NorthCourt inside NorthPark Center. Gene and Julie, co-hosts of The New 103.7 Lite FM/KVIL will emcee the confectionary contest to determine which local personalities’ charity will take home a $5,000 grand prize.

Gene and Julie will kick off the event with a preliminary Q&A round, and each team’s answers will be factored into final scores. The following contenders will then have 30 minutes to frost, decorate and creatively display cupcakes in the spirit of their organization:
- Roni Proter of The CW 33 for Hunger Busters
- Clarice Tinsley of KDFW-TV for Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas
- Amy Vanderoef of WFAA-TV for Hold the Door
- Brittany Cobb of Daily Candy for Make-A-Wish Foundation®
- Maxine Trowbridge of PinkMemo for Fashion Group International
- Meredith Land of KXAS-TV for LIVESTRONG

Founder of Sprinkles Cupcakes and judge of the Food Network’s "Cupcake Wars" Candace Nelson will join fellow judges: our own Kimberly Schlegel Whitman, Editor-at-Large for Southern Living Magazine; Barneys New York Concierge Jackson; and Owner & Pastry Chef Toni Rivard. Judges will choose one winning team to receive a $5,000 donation to their charity. The best part is that everyone wins! Sprinkles Cupcakes will also donate $1,000 to the remaining organizations.

Sprinkles Cupcakes Dallas – located inside The Plaza at Preston Center – will provide freshly-baked cupcakes and the bakery’s famous frosting, but teams are invited to bring decorations and display materials of their choice.

The event is open to the public, so sugar-aficionados and spectators are welcome to cheer from the sidelines while DJ OB-JEN & JUICE provide sweet music. Nelson and competitors will meet and greet with the crowd starting at 3:00 p.m., and the Cupcake Wars kicks off at 3:30 p.m.
