We have a new judge joining us this year – Ann Marie Whitten of The Great Canadian Baking Show.

A contestant in Season 2, Ann Marie is super-excited to support kids’ love of baking. So much so that she’ll be giving out a very special Baker’s Choice Award. Yay!


Q: I have two (or more) kids. Can they do a combined entry?
A: Sure, but there will only be one prize. Also, if they are in different age groups (i.e. one is in K-3 the other is 4-8) they will be categorized in one of those groups at the organizer’s discretion.

Q: Can my child have more than one entry?
A: Absolutely! If they’re up for the work and you’re willing to let your kitchen get extra demoed, go for it!

Q: Oh no, we’re running late! Can you just get my kid’s cupcakes in for judging anyway?
A: We’ll do what we can since we know your little baker worked hard, but if you arrive after 11:00AM, we can’t guarantee they’ll be eligible for a prize.

Q: Who’s judging the cupcakes?
A: We have a crack panel of cupcake lovers, including the principal and VP, teachers and some of our sponsors. And of course, everyone can cast their own ballot for the People’s Choice award. Just buy a cupcake to receive your ballot.
