Think cupcakes can only be cute and cuddly? At least nineteen bakeries from Orange County and L.A. will square off in the knock-down/drag-out 2010 Cupcake Challenge, coming to Hollywood’s Renaissance on February 20th. The mini-cupcakes prepared will be judged in two categories: originality and creativity, ensuring fresh and familiar takes for fanatics of all levels. The event is being organized by Drink.Eat.Play which encourages attendees to help pick the winners. $40 tickets can be purchased now through its website where there’s also a roster of participating bakeries.
