Sugarland bakery is celebrating its fifth birthday with a celebrity cupcake bake-off at its Raleigh location in Cameron Village
From 7-9 p.m. Wednesday, the public can watch celebrities paired with the bakery's pastry chefs have to create a cupcake based on a surprise theme. The winner will get $1,000 donated to the charity of their choice. The celebrities include WRAL anchor Debra Morgan, WQDR 94.7 morning deejay Mike Wheless, UNC football coach Larry Fedora and former "The Biggest Loser" competitors Ed Brantley and Heba Salama.
The event will kick off a month-long celebration featuring specials at the bakery's locations in Chapel Hill and Raleigh.
Plus, the bakery is sponsoring a month-long competition among local charities to win $500. Each charity will have an unique hash tag during March for their supporters to use on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook when sharing a photo of themselves at Sugarland with a sweet treat. The organization with the most posts that both tag Sugarland (@sugarlandnc) and include their organization's given hash tag will win.
To register a charity for the March competition, please contact Hannah Walker at firstname.lastname@example.org.
