GIRLS ON THE GRIND AND SHADES OF EBONY EVENTS PRESENTS...
COLUMBUS CAKE BATTLE AND CUPCAKE WARS!!
In an effort to bring something different, yet fun and exciting to the city, we have gathered some of Columbus, Ohio’s (and some are traveling from surrounding cities) most elite cake and cupcake artists to battle it out for some fabulous prizes!
The first place cake and cupcake winners will win a 3 day/2 night trip to 1 of 35 destinations and will display their desserts at one of the city’s most elite urban networking events, "Cocktails and Connections!" The second place winners will receive a trip and the third place winners will receive a cash prize. Participants will also have the opportunity to win a prize in the gallery category, where members of the audience will be selected and pronounced as judges, so there is an element of the “crowd favorite” as well-don't miss your chance to attend this fun event and possibly become a judge!!!
The event is now taking place at the Africentric Early College, located at 300 E. Livingston Ave on May 19, 2012 from 5pm-8pm. The host of the competition will be entrepreneur Nikki Ransom, life coach and local author and inductee into the “Who’s Who in Black Columbus 2011 and judges include local radio personalities Konata Holland and Marcus Cameron from Power 107.5 and local internet radio personalities Earth Jallow of Talktainment Radio’s “Gettin Down to Earth,” and Alecia Shipe and Shawni Marie from DPS Soul’s “The Shawni & Shipe Show,”among others.
Tickets will go on sale Monday April 16, 2012 and will be $10 per person. You can purchase tickets online via Eventbrite and from the participants in the competition. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the ladies of H.O.P.E. for their fundraiser "Our Community Cancer Fund."
