Event Update

This year's CAII Cupcakes and Cookies for Kids event is just two weeks away on Saturday, March 25, 2017 near Cascades Park in downtown Tallahassee. As such, registration for contestants and sponsorships closed on Friday, March 10, 2017. The tasting card pre-sale is also closed.

CAII Cupcakes and Cookies for Kids is a friendly annual competition for amateur and professional bakers, as well as an opportunity for the public to raise money for our program by sampling the various goods.

Tasting cards will be available to purchase at the event. You can also help us promote by sharing gal2.org/cupcake with your friends, colleagues and social media.

In addition, thank you to Barnaby's Family Inn, Chuy's and 4 Rivers Smokehouse for contributing prizes to the event.
