This April, Awesome Little Cupcakes, located at 4814 Princeton Ave., will be competing against 59 other bakers and confectioners to find the best dessert in the Philadelphia area. The top 3 winners will travel to Atlanta to compete in the championship. Awesome Little Cupcakes has been operating for 10 years and is celebrating 2 years in their Tacony-based shop this March. As part of her preparation for the competition, and to celebrate two years in Tacony, Awesome’s owner Stephanie Lawrence is turning to the Tacony community to help her choose the best flavors for competition!
On March 4th, Awesome Little Cupcakes will be hosting its own Tasting Party at the shop from 12-5PM. Everyone participating will be given four, bite-sized cupcakes to sample and vote on. Tasters will also receive a larger version of their favorite cupcake and a small coffee.
When Dessert Wars invited Stephanie to compete in the regional competition, she was told, “we don’t normally like to invite people who do cupcakes,” but seeing what she has to offer changed their minds! The Tacony community already knows that Awesome Little Cupcakes has truly awesome cupcakes, and now the rest of the Philadelphia area–and maybe the country!--is about to find out just how good they are.
Tickets for the tasting event can be bought ahead of time for $10, or for $15 at the door. In addition, the shop will be open to anyone who wants to purchase delicious goodies!
To sign up for the tasting party now, send $10 with the note “tasting” via Venmo (@awesomelittlecupcakes), Cashapp ($awesomelittlecupcake), or PayPal (@awesomelittlecupcake). https://awesomelittlecupcakes.com/
