While Cupcake Wars looks very different this year, we are still so very excited to bring you Virtual Cupcake Wars. Jacque Welch of the Van Wert Manor and Vicki Smith of the United Way of Van Wert County are teaming up again this year for the 3rd annual battle of the cupcake displays! This virtual event will run from Monday, March 15th thru Friday, March 19th.
This year, Van Wert Manor will be posting an album of cupcake displays on their Facebook page beginning March 15th. When you click on your favorite display photo, you will find a link to a donation page where you can place your vote for $5! Every $5 vote will enter your name into a drawing for a chance to win one of three “Baking Themed” raffle baskets! On Friday, votes will be tallied and the cupcake display that has the most money from votes will win that donation money along with sponsorship money from Lee Kinstle’s Sales & Service and Taylor’s Auto. Each agency will also be getting the money that is raised from votes for their displays.
New to this year’s event are our “Mini-Bakers”, Adria Webster of Graceful Cakes and Lakyn Bailey of Cakes.By.Lakes. Since we will not be selling the cupcakes from our display bakers, these girls have agreed to bake and sell their delicious cupcakes and cake pops and give a portion of their proceeds back to the United Way! Be sure to put your orders in to these girls by Friday, March 5th! (See photos for ordering information.) Check out our social media platforms for more information.
Although things are very different this year, we are thankful for our volunteers and a community that enjoys giving back even when things are a bit more challenging. We hope you’ll join us for the 2021 Cupcake Wars!!!
