4-H Cupcake War

Tuesday night I had the opportunity to judge the 1st ever Cupcake War (based off of the TV show from Food Network) contest in Murray County! I could not have been more excited about this whole situation, how perfect? 4-Her’s and cupcakes—two of my favorite things!  As many cupcakes that I have made in my life, I should be able to give constructive comments and positive feedback—I did just that.

Let me just say that this contest did not disappoint! I could have not been more proud of that group of young kids. There were kids from 9 years old-15 participating. For some of them, this was the first time they have ever baked cupcakes or given a speech. It’s truly heartwarming to know that there is such a great program for youth to be a part of that fosters personal development in such a way as 4-H.

To me, this is what it is all about!  Seeing the joy on their face when they receive a ribbon from their hard-earned work!

Love seeing young people do great things!


  1. That's so cool! I want to take part in a cupcake war!

  2. It was a blast! I want to try to incorporate it into my county. Maybe this summer, it could be really fun!
