Pocono Cupcake Challenge in its 2nd Year

I know, I know – the Pocono Cupcake Challenge does not take place until September 15th, but we are so excited at Shawnee that I just had to write at least a little about this wonderfully sweet event. Last year, we were able to raise over $6000 for the United Way of Monroe County through the Cupcake Challenge. We had over 40 Cupcake Vendors and a packed house of cupcake enthusiasts ready to sink their senses into the over 120 varieties of cupcakes available for donation.

This year we have great news that both Lily and Nema from A Cupcake Wonderland in Philadelphia will be able to serve as judges for the second annual Cupcake Challenge. We are so pleased to announce that Ady from Ady Cakes in Reading will serve as our third and final Judge. All three judges are cupcake experts and have appeared on the hit television show Cupcake Wars. And guess what – they all won!
