Cupcake Decorating Contest is a delicious reason to celebrate


UAB Campus Dining 2nd annual Cupcake Decorating ContestSince February hasn't given us enough holidays to celebrate after Valentine's Day, President's Day, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Grounhog Day, and Mardi Gras, it's time to declare a new one -- the annual UAB Cupcake Decorating Contest!  Because, as we all know, the world would be a better place with more cupcakes.

Now in its 2nd year, the Cupcake Decorating Contest, sponsored by UAB Campus Restaurants, will take place Thursday, Feb. 21 from 4-7 p.m. at The Commons on the Green.  There's no need to sign up, just show up for some cupcake fun.

Cupcakes will be judged by Louise's Cakes-N-Things owner Emily Forsythe and by the number of Facebook "likes" for each -- that's two chances for your cupcake to win.  Photos will be posted on the UAB Campus Restaurants Facebook page, so encourage your friends to become a fan and help vote up your cupcake creation.

And, most importantly, yes, you can eat the cupcakes after the event.
