Chocolate Affair: Cupcake War Fundraiser for Studio 84; Bakers and Tasters Needed!

(Studio 84 Submission) Studio 84 is hosting their 2nd Annual Chocolate Affair: Cupcake War Fundraiser. They are seeking a dozen bakers to enter into the event. Bakers are required to bake 48 cupcakes that are decorated. The main requirement is that these cupcakes worship chocolate! An entry form to show off your baking skills is available online at  Entry fee is only $20.

They are also seeking 48 tasters who will be our judges.  The only requirement is that they worship chocolate too and aren’t allergic to it!  Tickets for the event are $20 and there are raffle tickets for a chance to win an awesome “Death by Chocolate” candy creation made by board member Julie Witt.  Raffle tickets are 1/$2 or 8/$5.  

To keep this event safe for all, the event is curbside. Tasters can pick up their cupcakes on Saturday, October 3 from 12 p.m. – 2 p.m. without getting out of their cars.  Details and ticket purchases can be found at

Tasters will be able to vote for the best decorated and best tasting via a google form sent to them before the event date. 

Director of Studio 84, Deborah Blackwell, states, “We already have two entries and are excited for this year’s event even though we couldn’t hold it in person. With being closed for 3 months and running at a 30% capacity with students in order to keep them as safe as possible, our budget took a major hit. We hated the thought of canceling this great fundraiser, so came up with a creative solution. We hope to gain a dozen bakers and then sell only 48 taster tickets, this way each taster should receive a dozen cupcakes to judge.”  Deborah adds, “Last year’s winner, Stephanie Bailey, earned the title of Best Chocolate Cake in the County for her entry.  This year we are happy to add a decorating winner along with a best tasting cupcake winner.”

“Only a couple hours after getting the word out we already had two entries, so only 10 positions are left, ” Blackwell stated.  The first entry is from Whitewater. Sarah Hoots loves baking and while she’s most famous for her pies, she said, she loves chocolate and is excited to enter and support Studio 84.
