Local Bakery Hosts Kids Cupcake Competition for a Sweet Cause

November 18, 2018


     This past January, Historic Downtown Kissimmee got a very sweet new business on the block. Candyland Designs Co joined the merchants of Broadway Ave and has been giving back to the community ever since with numerous classes and donations to various events and charities. Owner Leia Perez is very active in the community. 


     On Saturday, November 17th, Leia hosted four young and aspiring bakers in a Kids Cupcake Competition held at the 1st United Methodist Church of Kissimmee to benefit No Kid Hungry,an organization working to end childhood hunger .  The pint-sized competitors prepared cupcakes in advance and decorated them in front of paying attendees who served as the judges. The girls had 1 hour to dress their desserts in the style they had chosen while guests watched in astonished surprise. At 4:00 p.m. it was time to put down the icing and sprinkles. Each paying guests received a ticket upon entry that they placed in a voting box for the baker whose cupcake they enjoyed most. 


   After Leia spent a few minutes talking to the audience about the No Kid Hungry Mission and thanking her community sponsors, it was time to reveal the winners. There was a tie for 3rd place between 11 year old Melina and 11 year old Aubrey.  2nd place went to the youngest competitor, 8 year old Aly. 1st place was awarded to 11 year old Jordyn who came from Ocoee to compete. Each child left with a gift basket full of baking tools as well as a certificate to attend Candyland Designs Co kids baking summer camp program.
