Winners of the Toronto Birthday Cupcake Bake-Off Contest
Winner of the Grand Prize
“Toronto cannot be expressed in just one cupcake; it is such a colorful multi-cultural city, lots to see, do and eat, accessible, fun and interesting. Here is a counter clockwise tour of my rainbow cupcakes starting from the top left: The Airport: an international airport where everyplace is accessible; High Park: a huge park right in the middle of the city; Music and drinks all across town; Rogers Centre and the CN Tower; Cabs everywhere: you never have to call them!; The TTC streetcar: easy to get around; The Beaches in the east end: volleyball and blue flag beaches; The 401 highway takes you to Kingston, Ottawa, Montreal, and many more!; Reduce, Reuse, Recycle; City Hall; Chinatown: always good dim sum!; and bicycles everywhere in the city.”
The other cupcake entries were equally original, elaborate and included the Toronto night sky, the transit system and it’s multiculturalism. One entrant went on to describe what she INTENDED to bake since she had no baking experience whatsoever but had spent two (2) hours trying to create something she was ill-equipped to bake. Her entry was designed to serve as a “warning” to those with the delusions who dare enter a cupcake contest without baking skills or experience.
