Cupcakes Most Wanted, in partnership with Higher Living Inc., hosted a Youth Bake-off and fundraiser event at the Grayson Center in the Hill District, April 7.
Contestants ages 10-14 showed off their baking and entrepreneurial skills in front of a star-studded panel of judges, such as KiKi Brown of WAMO 100, Councilman R. Daniel Lavelle, school board member Sala Udin, Jasmine Cho of Yummyholic, Kate Dewey of Cohen & Grigsby law firm, and last year’s youth bake-off winner, 13-year-old Kinverlyn Fleming.
The event was hosted by Emmy Award-winning film director Emmai Alaquiva. The Youth Ally Award was presented to Keysha Gomez, executive director of H.O.P.E. for Tomorrow.
Courier photographer J.L. Martello captured the event in pictures.
