From page A7 | February 20, 2012 |

This year’s Cake War at the 10th annual Sacramento Chef Challenge is “Battle Cupcakes,” and they are looking for three amateur contestants to duke it out against three cupcake pros.

“We are inviting amateur baker’s from the greater Sacramento area to join the battle by creating a three- to five-minute video that shows us “why you and your cupcakes are the best.”

Submissions will be accepted now through April 1. The following day, 10 videos will be posted online, and the public will decide which lucky bakers have what it takes to compete live at the Sacramento Chef Challenge on Saturday,
June 23.

The rules are simple:

• You must be 21 or older to compete.

• The video must be 3-5 minutes long, uploaded to Youtube and submitted to Cakegrrl.com by April 1.

• Finalists will be notified by June 1.

• The three finalists will create a themed cupcake display alongside professional bakers and in front of a live audience. Guests will sample the cupcakes and vote for their favorite.

Want to submit a video, but don’t know where to begin? Kristy DeVaney, the sugarplum behind Cakegrrl.com, has sample videos on her Website.

The competition is looking for great bakers with amazing personalities, so now is the time to pull out all the stops. Complete rules can be found at cakegrrl.com and chefevent.com. For more information contact Kristy DeVaney at
cakegrrl2007@gmail.com or call 916-381-1300 x170.
