Remember Your First Cupcake?

1st Annual Pocono Cupcake Challenge

–Article by Jeromy Wo, Public Relations

I still remember taking a bite out of my first cupcake ever and feeling the creamy potpourri of flavors filling my senses with joy. Those where the days. Not a care in the world, just living life from cupcake to cupcake. Though they seem long gone I am excited to relive those moments again at the First Annual Cupcake Challenge that will be held at The Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort.

A day of culinary fun will be in store as the cup cake contest will allow contestants to show of their baking talents. This allows those like me to relive the childhood that I left behind one booth at a time. What’s better is that the United Way of Monroe County will benefit from each cupcake purchased! There is a lot of need in our community and no sweeter way to help.

The contest will be held on the Grand Lawn of the Shawnee Inn on Sunday, October 7th from 1pm-4pm. There is no cost to attend; however, $10 will cover the first 5 cupcakes purchased with each additional cupcake costing $2. If you are interested in entering the Cupcake Challenge, all entry forms need to be received by September 21st. Contact Tamara Pettite at for more information.
