EET Cupcake Competition 2015

cupcake-competitorsWe recently held our first  Annual Cupcake Competition run in conjunction with National Youth Week at Jellybean Park in Nowra. The competition raises money for local Youth Organisations and aims to boost awareness about people with disability in the local community.

We had a great turn out for the event with participants from the Shoalhaven, Wollongong, Southern Highlands and Goulburn all putting forward their 6 best cupcakes for judging. Our Judges included Shoalhaven Mayor Johanna Gash and Essential Employment and Training CEO Amanda Calwell-Smith, who were asked to make there judgements purely on aesthetics so the cupcakes could be sold off and funds raised given to the local Youth Centre.

Essential Employment and Training Regional Manager Garry Field said “We hope to make this an annual event that will get bigger and better every year, One day we would love to be able to shut the main street of Nowra and line tables up the whole length of the road filled with cupcakes.”
