Use your imagination to get creative! Kids 12 and under are invited to come decorate cupcakes with their very own frosting, sprinkles, and candy galore. There is no limit to how many types of decorations participants can bring to this enjoyable competition, but all decor must be edible ! The Kids Cupcake Decorating Contest will be held in the 4-H Hall at the State Fair Center on Saturday, July 27th. Check in is at 12:30 pm and the contest will begin at 1:00 pm. Each kid will get one cupcake to show us “What I Love at the North Dakota State Fair”. Cupcakes will be critiqued on creativity, neatness, and how well they fit this year’s theme.
Maybe your child will choose to decorate their cupcake with a horse, sheep, goat, rabbit, pig, or other animal from one of our exhibits. Or perhaps they will sculpt their cupcake into a Ferris Wheel, a foot long corn dog, a clown, a carnival game, or their favorite parade float. Whatever it is that your kiddo loves to see or do at the fair can be inspiration for their cupcake design. Start practicing now! There will be two age divisions: one for kids aged 6 and under with a time limit of ten minutes to complete their delicious masterpieces, and the other for children ages 7-12 with a longer fifteen minute time limit to add even more embellishments to their designs. Fun prizes will be rewarded to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in each age division. Find the registration form at www.ndstatefair.com/specialevents. Entries must be in no later than Monday, July 15th.
