Cupcake Contest

September 29th, 2016

Arbor Lakes Senior Living hosted a Cupcake Contest on Sept. 16 with 14 contestants competing for the First, Second, Third, and Fourth Place prizes. We had so much fun and were so impressed with our talented bakers right here at Arbor Lakes!

Our qualified Judge’s Lineup included: Jennifer (Pastry Chef from Maple Grove Lunds & Byerly’s), Jean Hendrickx (Our very own Chef Manager), Jessica (Operation Manager of Maple Grove Nothing Bundt Cakes) and Brianna (Baker from Maple Grove Nadia Cakes).
Our judges had the difficult task of sampling and rating each cupcake to determine the winners. They were all great recipes and worthy of winning!
